Coming to Rittenhouse Square

A tavern is coming together at the Art Alliance.

Coming to Rittenhouse Square


Chef Ed Brown, who runs the culinary show for caterer Restaurant Associates, has been shuttling between his New York base and Philly, as he's planning a restaurant inside the Art Alliance, on the edge of Rittenhouse Square.

Name will be Rittenhouse Tavern, and the opening is "early 2012." Brown is still searching for a chef de cuisine to run the day-to-day.

See Brown on NBC's Today show, showing holiday seafood appetizer recipes. (Link)

Here's the project's history.
