Philadelphia restaurants to dine for

Yes, Philly’s known for its cheesesteaks, soft pretzels, and water ice—all delicious, no doubt—but the dining scene is much more than its most famous treats. Think chef-driven concepts, cuisines from around the world, hyperlocal ingredients, and bustling food halls. The Rittenhouse Square neighborhood around the hotel is not only one of the city's top culinary destinations but also a hub for Philadelphia dining enthusiasts. It's filled with patios perfect for people-watching, offering fabulous happy hour specials and leisurely brunches. (Plus, don't forget to explore our very own Square 1682, notable for its modern American cuisine and outstanding bar program.) Discover why Rittenhouse Square is a true dining destination in the heart of Philadelphia.

Explore Philadelphia's Foodie Culture

Philadelphia is often referred to as one of the best foodie cities in the U.S., thanks to its abundance of dining destinations that cater to every palate.

These hotspots are just a slice of what makes Philadelphia's dining scene so extraordinary, and they're all waiting for you to savor. So, whether you're in the mood for some world-famous cheesesteaks or wish to uncover new gastronomic delights, there's no better place than Philadelphia to explore and satisfy your foodie cravings.
