Dining room at, Philadelphia, PA Restaurant Review

: This cozy 60-seat restaurant is adjacent to the AKA Rittenhouse Square hotel. In a modern, crisp space that includes a marble chef's counter (the best seats in the house) and a smattering of sidewalk seating, specializes in innovative small plates, dishes that strike a fine balance between style and substance. A homemade English muffin is the building block of a breakfast sandwich, and does justice to a bacon-cheddar burger at lunch. Smoked scallops, scrambled eggs and horseradish; mushroom-stuffed quail with pancetta, turnips and sage; corkscrew pasta with duck ragoƻt and rosemary: each dish delivers a flavor punch. The menu changes seasonally, so that's just a taste of what you can expect. Consultant David Fields created a mid-size Euro-centric wine list highlighting boutique producers from regions such as the Loire, Alsace and Finger Lakes. There's also a craft beer selection and an array of cocktails. Desserts might include goat cheese cheesecake with Riesling sorbet or fresh-baked shortbread with lemon curd, which arrives warm and fragrant to the table. Next door is, an intimate cocktail lounge featuring an extensive raw bar and an assortment of seafood-driven small plates and charcuterie.
