XIX Nineteen Restaurant, Philadelphia, PA

XIX Nineteen Restaurant Restaurant Review

: Take the elevator to the 19th floor of the Hyatt at The Bellevue where the doors open onto one of the city’s most sophisticated dining experiences. Updated in cream and leather by designer Meg Rodgers, Nineteen is a striking space with ornate 50-foot domes and an oversize dangling pearl “chandelier.” Actually two restaurants in one, Nineteen includes a café that caters to hotel guests and offers more casual fare, and the upscale restaurant in the cupola beyond, surrounded by sweeping views of the Philadelphia skyline. The kitchen applies polished classical technique to locally sourced and seasonal ingredients. A central raw bar includes the greatest hits --- clams, scallops and oysters. The menu mines both land and sea. Try the pan-seared black cod with pickled beets and tomato saffron broth, or the five-spice duck with white quinoa pilaf, oranges and foie gras. Desserts may include coconut raspberry bars and mango cheesecake. The brunch is worth every penny. An all-day menu allows for snacking any time the urge strikes.
