One of the most shittiest and overrated piece of cheesesteak ever! I have been living in Philly since 2005 and had Geno's twice and it was not tasty at all. The way that they cut their meat slices (long strips) make the sandwich taste dry. Pat's Cheesesteaks' approach to their meat is loose and cut up. Their meat is moist and juicy as well. Not only that, their neon signs are TRULY OBNOXIOUS! It made feel like is this the Las Vegas of Cheesesteaks? Visually yes but clearly NOT! Do yourself a favor, try it once at Geno's for the experience, but Pat's Cheesesteaks is better. However, I think that there are better cheesesteak joints in the city than those two. For example: Jim Steak's on South is my fav. Two nights ago, I took my cousin from NYC to Geno's and the verdict between Pat's and Geno's: Pat's although both overrated said he. I do remember specifically when I had Geno's the second time, it caused traumatic diarrhea..... well not traumatic but damn sure it fu$%ed my morning up the next day. Geno's will not take another cent OUTTA me!

I finally got a chance to go to Top Flr. My boyfriend kept saying that he thought I would like it so we put it on our list of places to check out on our next date night. So we went last night and I had a good time. Top Flr has a good, sexy vibe. The lighting is right. The music is right. It is a small space but they make good use of it. I normally don't like dining in small spaces with close tables but we got lucky and got a corner spot in the back of the restaurant for two. It was cozy,comfortable and probably the best seats in the house. The Food Hangar steak-Tender, juicy, nice flavor Roasted Vegetables-Delicious Mac and Cheese-Good, not spectacular, we make a very delicious homemade mac that beats this :) Tuna tartare crisp bread-Yummy Duck confit pasta-Very delicious, good flavors The service was good. The servers were attentive but not overbearing. The downside were the dessert choices. Nothing on the menu interested me and I skipped dessert and ended up going to another spot for dessert. That's a downer for me because I am a Real dessert girl. But overall, I enjoyed my dining experience at Top Flr. I will definitely be dining here again. UPDATE 7/19/09 We have gone here on our last 3 date nights. Why? Because it is not far from home and we love the food. We have good consistent service and just like the laid back vibe. We decided last night that on our next visit we will try some different menu offerings because we always have the same thing each visit the pappardelle with duck confit (so delicious!), root vegetables, Tuna tartare crisp bread, the sweet potato succotash (makes me want to slap my mom). Last night I tried dessert for the first time and had this lemon like gelato with strawberry compote. This has become a regular spot for us and that's saying a lot for me because I am usually not a "regular" of many places.

danced the fucking night away here last saturday. or, tried to, until i was forcibly dragged away by my hipster friends to the valenica corridor bla blabla. i didn't want to leave, and judging by the annoying things that subsequently happened at delirium, i shouldn't have. this place is sooooooooo much fun and the ginger margarita and the sangria are soooooooooooo tasty. the music was a great change from the shitty 80s tunes you are usually subjected to on the weekends in the mission, and despite the fact that it was packed beyond capacity, i only had to wait a minute or two to get a drink. i can't wait to go back this weekend.
