Loie Bistro : Philadelphia

Do forgive the orange light on these photos, which give the food a mutant radioactive look. My sole light source of that day was the orange street lamp from outside, which betrays at least the quality of the burger we got here:

Steak Frites - Sauce way too salty. The steak itself was okay, but somehow the cut(?) of the meat was a bit gamier than what I'm used to. The frites were solid, but nothing uniquely memorable about them.

Cuban burger - This was a damn solid burger and for the same price of a burger at Good Dog, we enjoyed this one a lot more.

Something about the front part of Loie Bistro strikes me as a little odd, as if the owners couldn't decide whether to emphasize the dining or the bar, so they compromised and put a few small tables up front and awkwardly placed the bar slightly inset. But that being said, the interior is nice enough and the burgers tasty enough, if you wanted to have a casual meal with co-workers.
