A guide to great places near The Rittenhouse Hotel

  1. Lacroix Restaurant

    reakfast may be the most important meal of the day, but brunch is the most socially important, so good luck maintaining manners through the Rittenhouse Hotel's Sunday morning sit-down.

  2. Rittenhouse Square

    Look for the Visit Philly crew near the goat at 4 pm on 4sqday (4/16 – get it?). They’ll have giveaways for the first 16 people to show them their check-in.

  5. The Dandelion

    Keep calm and carry on at this kitsch-filled English pub near Rittenhouse Square. Head upstairs and check out the "dog room."

  6. Tria

    According to one regular, “I’ll drink by myself pretty much anywhere, but I believe Tria is the best place in the city for a woman to drink alone. It attracts the most harmless jerks of any wine bar.”

  7. Di Bruno Bros.

    Ask for a sample! They have a 300-square foot cheese cave with 500 varieties of cheese, glorious cheese.

  8. The Corner Foodery

    From the dudes behind The Corner and Foodery... The Corner Foodery (!) is a 500-bottle shop-cum-gourmet-deli-cum-dining-room in Center City.

  9. Federal Donuts

    The "fancy" donuts are inventive, the "hot fresh" are always right out of the fryer, and the chicken is unbelievable. Impossible to leave unhappy.

  10. Monk's Cafe

    Because when that bus drove through it last year, our first worry was actually the beer collection.

  11. Elixr Coffee Roasters

    The menu -- like the space -- is larger, with Intelligentsia beans joining their existing PT & Southpaw espresso blends

  12. The Sporting Club at the Bellevue

    Take boxing with Cliff - even though you feel like you might keel over after, it's an amazing workout!
