A Day Off: Parc and The Flower Show

Sometimes you just need a day off. And that’s just what we did earlier this week.

After dinner a few weeks ago at Parc on Rittenhouse Square in Philadelphia we decided to return. But this time for breakfast. And, boy, was it good! While my husband had the Eggs Benedict and I the Eggs Norwegian, which substitutes smoked salmon on the eggs Benedict, I’m still daydreaming about the meal.

Mother Nature gave hints of spring, too. The restaurant really adapts the Parisian feel — or what I’d imagine it to be. Large, floor to ceiling windows just let the beautiful sunlight come rushing in. It was a lovely experience to an equally lovely meal.

Meanwhile our visit to the Philadelphia Flower Show was not quite as enjoyable. After my visit last year, where the plants weren’t looking quite so lively, we decided to go early on this time. Apparently so did everyone else. Even arriving at opening, you couldn’t get close enough to any of the exhibits to see anything. What I could see all looked very similar. While I was very excited about the theme of the National Parks, I was very disappointed with the execution. I think this might be my last visit to the Flower Show for a while.

At least I have that wonderful meal to carry me through…
