Love Note #53: From Tara Nurin — Go to Positano Coast, get the far corner table on the outdoor terrace bar, and relax in the Mediterranean atmosphere

Tara Nurin
Favorite Spot: The far corner table overlooking the street below at Sopra Lounge, Positano Coast’s outdoor terrace bar.

Neighborhood: Society Hill
Address: 212 Walnut St {Second Floor} 

I am: A former TV reporter and current freelance journalist who specializes in craft beer/dining and destination coverage for national and regional print, video and radio outlets. I’ve spent my adult life living all over the world for no more than two years at a time until a job brought me to the Philly area. I’ve never left.
Years in Philly: 9
Current Home: Camden Waterfront
My love note: An accidental encounter first introduced me to you; then a second, then a third. After that, I began seeking you out, pouting when I couldn’t approach you. I luxuriate in your 360 views — to the right, a gauzy, breeze-blown curtain that modestly obscures the old-fashioned street; to the left, a discrete bar for those who wish not to participate in the buzz of the main lounge; straight ahead, beautiful people, beautiful seascapes of the brilliant hues of the Mediterranean, beautiful furnishings in virginal white leather, deep sea azur, blood-pumping rose and tree-ripened lemon; and behind me, the freedom of Philadelphia’s open air. You offer me the sophisticated and languous setting for pleasant chatter, martini glasses bearing fresh, organic ambrosias, and dapper plates overflowing with grilled octopus, artichokes, imported oils, lemon zest and rosemary pesto. You give me gifts that are unmatched by other suitors for my affection, and in return, though I cannot give you my loyalty, I do promise you my devotion.
