THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED L2 Restaurant Review

: Nathan Dolente, who ran the locals' favorite Linoleum in the 70s, brings his spark to L2, and it's as if he never left. The food is comfort chic, with a mix of international flavors and first-rate, home-style cooking on the menu. Try the penne with rose sauce and prosciutto, the meatloaf or roasted crispy duck. Dolente calls it The New West Side Story, but this tale is as old as the hills: give the customers what they want, and they will flock to the door. Incidentally, the restaurant has a lovely private room upstairs for parties.

Terrific Evening
by Bueno on Wed Jun 09, 2010 11:54 am
 
I live in Germany, and on my last business visit to Philly, I was looking for a place to have dinner and, by luck I ended up at L2. From the beginning on, we felt at ease, due to the excellent staffs' service. Although the restaurant was fully booked and we didn't have a reservation, they managed to find us a table. The food was delicious, and after dessert and a couple of drinks, we've found out that the cook was the owner of the place. We were so satisfied that we invited him to join us at our table. We had such a wonderful evening, Mr. Dolente knows how to entertain his guests. I am looking forward to coming back to Philadelphia, and certainly to spending more evenings at this wonderful restaurant, which I can highly recommend.
