Encore performances usually require changes of some kind, unless Bowie already played that, in which case Modern Love will do just fine, thank you very much. For a University City icon switching up its menu/look with its second effort, get out to White Dog Cafe.
The new White Dog's digs differ from the UCity mothership, with a unique menu of locavore pleasers and an interior that forgoes the original's Victorian treatments for a smattering of 19th century nods throughout a contemporary setting: dining rooms decked in whitewash and floating books and a comfy bar in rich dark woods covered in dog portraits, comfy upholstered low-backs, and banquettes styled like tweed wingbacks, which have fallen out of favor in an era of spread offenses/recliners. Small plates include a chicken liver mousse prepped w/ sun-dried cherry chutney & sourdough croustades; ravioli stuffed w/ wild trumpet mushrooms & served w/ scallions, Tasso ham, and a light porcini cream; and crab cakes w/ a citrus vinaigrette & Kaufmann apples, whose iPods presumably only play "Man On The Moon". Big plates offer wood-grilled yellow fin w/ late harvest tomatoes & capers topped w/ a rouille; a 14oz ribeye w/ a black pepper crust w/ Brussels sprouts & a grilled onion bread pudding; and short ribs braised in red wine served w/ a garlic-parm potato puree, crispy shallots, and root vegetables, although anybody'd become brain-dead if they had to watch Jimmy Fallon every night.
The bar's open and serving canine-named coffee cocktails like the Kahlua-spiked Chihuahua, and sides include truffle parm fries w/ a spicy aioli & mushrooms, which if you eat before the concert, will ensure you see plenty of Changes, you Rebel, Rebel.
