The Empress

The food is only part of the appeal.

The restaurant is nice and the staff is exceptionally cool. That’s a tough-to-come-by combination. Good food (and coffee), cool place with wifi and staff that makes customers feel welcome.

My current favorite dish is the Risotto +duck confit.

There is also a great $4 egg salad sandwich.

I gave The Empress 741 out of 803 points

(plus 323 points for bribery = 1064 points)

The Empress is at 2043 W. Broad St.
