The Dandelion Restaurant Review: The Dandelion is Starr Restaurants’ smart British pub, located just off Rittenhouse Square. It is a veritable warren of cozy, fire-lit rooms with upstairs and downstairs bars so authentic you'll start paying in pounds. The kitchen infuses the menu with a seasonal and locally sourced take on traditional fare, updated comfort dishes such as Cumberland sausages with mashed potatoes and onion gravy; beer-battered fish ‘n’ chips; and rabbit pie with cipollini, the bittersweet Italian onions, oyster mushrooms and grain mustard. Don't miss the mac 'n' cheese with bits of ham hock, bright with sharp English cheddar. A food-friendly beer list heavy on UK drafts includes three constantly-rotating cask ales. Traditional roast with Yorkshire pudding is available on Sundays and "bank holidays," while afternoon tea becomes even more appealing when accompanied by a pitcher of Pimm's Cup or another potent potable. Try the sticky toffee pudding with date ice cream and rum sauce for dessert.
