Some friends were visiting from Philadelphia. So we did what we knew best...we took them out to eat! We all wanted something different from the usual steakhouse. So after some consideration, we booked a reservation to ilili. I recommended it due to the awesome brunch I had there once. I wanted to see if they could impress me with their dinner fare as well.
And impress they did! Look at the spread that we had! Their menu is designed for groups to share. So we ordered a bunch of appetizers (hot and cold) and just a couple of entrees to share. Dish after dish came. We ate up each and every delicious morsel.
Before the meal started, we ordered some of their signature cocktails. I don't remember which ones but they were delicious. Refreshing and perfect with the upcoming meal. They also gave us some bread, crackers, cheese/yogurt, and olives to snack on.
