We can't say enough good things about Catherine's in Unionville (610 347-2227). This charming, romantic BYOB transplanted from West Chester lives up to its reputation and then some. The interior was a surprise, with its romantic lighting complete with hurricane lights on the floor and small round table with white table cloths. We started our dinner with Wild Mushroom Soup with lump crabmeat ($7.95), Caesar Salad blended with spicy Chipotle peppers ($6.95) and Lobster & Fennel Crepe Shitake mushroom & brandy cream ($8.95). All were fabulous as were our entrées; Sea Scallops coconut curry sauce ($20.95), Blackened Tuna Steak raspberry jalapeno coulis ($22.95), and Filet Mignon Portabella mushroom with a wonderful Madeira cream and topped with Spanish Blue cheese ($25.95). Dessert!!!! They change, but we sampled the Ginger Peach sour cream torte, Tiramisu Bomb, yellow cake topped with tiramisu cream encrusted in semi-sweet chocolate; and flourless chocolate fudge with raspberry mousse toped with semi-sweet chocolate. Again... fabulous. They now have their menu online.

Subs & Cheesesteaks & Burgers
Philadelphia claims to have the best cheesesteaks, but don't say that around here. And when it comes to italian and turkey subs, forgetaboutit! You can find the best around at Capriotti's and Casapulla's.

This place hasn't changed since the '50s. Same great burgers, fries, shakes and cheese steaks.
