Rose Tattoo Cafe Restaurant Review

: Michael and Helene Weinberg's Rose Tattoo Café was a pioneering place when it opened in the "far flung" Fairmount section of Philadelphia in 1989. Now a neighborhood mainstay in this well-discovered section of town near the Art Museum, Rose Tattoo is known for consistently good food and a welcoming atmosphere. The retro 70s décor could stand a redo, but never mind, it's still a fine backdrop for date night. A friendly waitstaff and a small, reasonable wine list are added attractions. Specials change regularly, but try the pan-seared provolone with aged balsamic, house-made mushroom ravioli and zippy jambalaya for starters. Desserts are all made in-house and are available for take-out.
