Philadelphia: dinner at Davio's

Thursday night's dinner was at Davio's, a restaurant with lovely high ceilings and thick white linens inside the Club Quarters hotel.  We had a preset three-course menu and plenty of refills on the fantastic bread basket (focaccia, cranberry wheat, and simple white).  We started with a very good green salad dressed in balsamic vinaigrette that was on the sweeter side.

Next, out of three pasta choices I had the cavatelli with ragu bolognese (a very chunky meat sauce), shown at top, which tasted and looked like it had some finely chopped chives.  Tasty and comfort food-ish, though the chives were unexpected.  Dessert was a mascarpone-heavy tiramisu and [decaf] coffee.
