GEM On The GO! Russet In Philadelphia (VIDEO)


 GEM On The GO!
Russet In Philadelphia (VIDEO)

Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy! Okay so remember when I went to Philadelphia to shoot an episode of my new show, Sweet Retreats? I had a chance to connect with some awesome Philly area mom bloggers (I’ll tell you more about Karla Trotman, Pam Margolis and Uneeka Jay a bit later).  But we needed a cool place with great food and awesome ambience for out little meet up and Karla suggested Russet.  Located in the Rittenhouse Square neighborhood, the restaurant is actually in a centuries old townhouse, full of eye-catching architecture. But your palate will be as pleased as your peepers (I know, I KNOW!) when you sit down and experience chefs/owners Andrew and Kristin Wood’s amazing cuisine.

Andrew told me he didn’t grow up with a love of food, something I found hard to believe based on the symphony taking place in the kitchen. Well, instead of me trying to paint a picture with words, take a peek for yourself. Thanks Andrew and Kristen for your hospitality! And if you like what you see, stop by Russet and like them on Facebook too!
