Stopped in for a little breakfast and was not disappointed. Ordered the avacado toast and it was so delish. Perfectly seasoned and the eggs just the right level of runny for that sort of dish. Front of house was very attentive and kept my table clean and drinks topped off whenever it needed it. More

What a great night! I have been a few times and it is always just as great or even better than the last time. Service is super friendly and not too stuffy. The drinks are super tasty and the food is to die for. A lot of great familiar things and some new things that I had never tried before! (Where have you been all my life garlic yogurt?) I can see why it's such a hot spot. Great spot for a large group of friends or a romantic date. HIGHLY recommend checking it out! More

We had a reservation and we were sat at a table in the front by the kitchen door, which was noisy and didn't have the same ambience as the inside of the restaurant. We asked if there was an other place we could be sat and the hostess informed us that there was a bar with full dinner service down there, so we sat down there and the ambience was even cooler. They have a two lane bowling alley and the bar downstairs is a really cool vibe. I'm really glad the hostess let us know it existed. More

Discover Rittenhouse Square

Bordered by gleaming high-rises and featuring a well-manicured park, Rittenhouse Square sits in the midst of Philly cheesesteak territory, but you'll also find neighborhood restaurants offering custom shaved-beef creations alongside lighter vegetarian options. More formal Italian cuisine is also traditional in this section of town, and it's a nod to the immigrants who came over in the 18th and 19th centuries. Here, you’ll find everything from tagliatelle, gnocchetti and exotic raviolis to veal tenderloin and polenta. If you’re hungry for a snack and the weather’s cold, consider a warm soft pretzel from a street vendor. If it’s warm, opt for a classic Italian water ice or a gelato sampler.
