Dining

Dining

AKA Rittenhouse Square’s bar and restaurant have been recognized by Zagat, Philadelphia Magazine, and Bon Appetit — no small accomplishment in a city that is packed with celebrated chefs and acclaimed restaurants.

a.kitchen – Executive chef Eli Collins puts his personal spin on Mediterranean and American classics at this casual yet refined bistro. Choose from seasonally inspired small plates, or go for hearty entrees such as Berkshire pork chop with shiro plum mustard — and pair it all with a glass from the award-winning wine list.

a.bar – Candles, pendulum lights, and a gleaming brass bar set the mood at a.bar. Come early for inventive brunch dishes such as brook trout Benedict, grab a gourmet sandwich and a glass of wine at lunch, or settle into a booth in the evening for seasonal house cocktails and selected dishes from a.kitchen's restaurant menu.

Activities

Work out at the Technogym-equipped fitness center. Then drop into a.kitchen for a morning coffee, or spend some time browsing the house library of art and design books. Relax with an in-room massage in the afternoon, then begin your evening with a cocktail or a glass of organic wine at a.bar, finishing with a movie screening in a.cinema.

Outside, start by getting a bird's eye view of the city from the One Liberty Observation Deck. Then explore Philadelphia's — and America's — history at Independence National Historical Park, the grounds are home to the Liberty Bell, the National Constitution Center, and the Museum of the American Revolution. Nearby, pick up artisan produce at Reading Terminal Market, or explore the neighborhood's nightlife, which ranges from Irish pubs to stylish rooftop bars.
