New year, new options

Rouge, 205 S. 18th St.

The close of 2013 meant the closing of Alfa, a chill late-night Rittenhouse option at 17th and Walnut Streets. Rouge, on 18th Street across from Rittenhouse Square, wants to fill the void with late-night options. Specifically, there's a new late-night menu served daily from 11 p.m. to 1 a.m. Chef Samuel Noh is putting out lots of cheeses and assorted nibbles including slider versions of Rouge's signature burger.

BIstro Siggie in Worcester, Montgomery County, has added Tuesday-through-Saturday lunch (menu) and Sunday brunch (menu). 

Mica in Chestnut HIll has added weekend brunch from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Menu is here.
