THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Noble: An American Cookery Restaurant Review: Sleekly designed on two levels, Noble: An American Cookery brings the best of the season to Philadelphia’s posh Rittenhouse Square neighborhood. From the trio of Bruno Pouget, Todd Rodgers and chef Brinn Sinnott (Lacroix, Four Seasons), Noble sets lofty goals: to pursue the noblest form of hospitality and serve farm-to-table cuisine, bright with the flavors of the season. Chef Sinnott harvests herbs and vegetables from his rooftop garden to add seasonal élan to dishes such as chilled asparagus soup and spinach and lump crab gratin, served in a space with outdoor seating and a sky-lit dining room. Prices are high, but then again, grass-fed short rib isn't easy to come by. Happy hour is the time to sample a daily cocktail special, wine and beer deals and half-price snacks such as pork belly and chickpea fries. The beverage menu is impressive: a long list of cocktails using fresh ingredients, house-brewed ginger beer and cider, and even homemade tonic.
