The Continental in Olde City is restaurant mogul Stephan Starr's first place in Philadelphia and is now almost 20 years old. Although we hadn't been there in a while, we found it still delivers excellent food at a reasonable price. The menu consists of a tasty array of appetizers, small plates and larger plates, soups, as well as a limited, but tasty range of deserts. Martinis are also a specialty. Plates are meant to be shared, tapas style. Everything we had, from appetizers to deserts, was well-prepared, made with an imaginative choice of ingredients and well -prepared. We particularly enjoyed the Diver's scallops, the Spinach Ravioli and the Soft Shrimp Tacos with pistachios. Desert was a luscious brownie with chocolate-hazelnut ice cream and fudge sauce. Service was attentive, and our server paid particular attention to food sensitivities of one of our party. Based on our recent experience, I plan a return visit soon.
