This neighborhood bar has evolved into one of the city's best gastro-pubs, with a funky decor (check out the blowfish lamp) and a crowd ranging from local hipsters to Rittenhouse sophisticates who come for chef Peter Dunmire's appealing menu, which roams effortlessly from tuna burgers and wings to high-toned striped bass.
Soups of the day (cream of chicken, lentil and sausage, curried carrot); calamari; spring rolls; shrimp dumplings; hamburger; fish and chips; tuna burger; wild striped bass with eggplant; pork cutlets with apples and cabbage.
A super value list, with 10 wines at $19.95 a bottle and $6 a glass, but also quite drinkable. There are also superb craft beers, big-bottle Belgians, and an excellent selection of well-priced top-shelf liquor.
Hours: 7 days (dinner only)
