From acclaimed chef Townsend Wentz comes Townsend, a French bistro that serves refined versions of rustic dishes using fresh, seasonal ingredients. The simple, candlelit setting creates a romantic and intimate atmosphere that allows the elegant cuisine to shine. An extensive list of French wines and cocktails are available.

Award-winning chef Jose Garces presents gourmet pub fare and raw bar items by Chef de Cuisine Jose Olmeda at Village Whiskey. At the heart of the restaurant, the bar is home to specialty cocktails and more than 100 different whiskeys. With late night and brunch menus, the intimate, speakeasy-style bar — framed by tufted leather banquette booths — is a versatile neighborhood gem for almost any time of day or night.

A popular, inviting BYOB spot, Yanako uses traditional techniques and fresh ingredients to deliver sushi and other sophisticated Japanese fare. The authentic restaurant features traditional Japanese decor, with expansive skylights, a wood-paneled sushi bar and a serene interior courtyard.

Happy dining,
Lisa Ganz, Reserve Philadelphia
