Heard great things about this place from fellow foodies, in particular the burgers were supposedly among the best in the city. Definitely a cool place with an impeccable selection of bourbon/whiskey/scotch, but the burger (which is what I came for) was mediocre at best. I and my 2 companions all had burgers and not one was made to the chosen temperature. Each was over cooked and dry. The waitress and manager did compensate us by removing our drinks from the bill and this was greatly appreciated but I’d would have rather just enjoyed a perfectly cooked, juicy burger. More

The prefix menu was great, the food had great flavor. The price was slightly higher than expected, but considering it was valentine’s day....was expected, even for a byob. The service was good; however, the waitress was accelerated, the experience felt rushed. Overall, the food, the restaurant and the atmosphere were pleasant. 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.
