Prepare to dine on some American cookery.

One need not be exotic to succeed. Such is the case with one of the newest Philadelphia restaurants.

Walk down Sansom Street, west of 20th, and you'll find a new eatery nestled among the entertainment spots. Noble calls itself "an American cookery."

Owner and chef Steven Cameron aims to serve food as local and as sustainable as he can.

The bright, contemporary decor carries through the sustainability theme. The bar features unique wood imported from Cameroon. Steps to upstairs are made from recycled barn timbers. The upper dining room is sky-lit. If you look closely through the skylight, you'll catch a glimpse of the chef's rooftop garden.

The kitchen is full of surprises, and a lot of seafood. There's also a beef short rib dish that's remarkably light that's made with white wine and a little citrus.

The chef moved here because he loves the local restaurant scene.
