Smith And Wollensky


210 W. Rittenhouse Sq.
Pennsylvania 19103
Tel: +1 215-545-1700

The Philadelphia outpost of this national steakhouse has taken residence in The Rittenhouse Hotel. The upstairs room of this lofty perch, is decorated with dark wood accents, turn of the century fixtures, and pieces of Americana, and you can have your steak overlooking elegant Rittenhouse Square. That is, if you can get a table, for not only has it become immensely popular, but the staff needs a few pointers in handling their guests. This aside, the meat is reliable---succulent cuts of beef, and a signature crackling pork shank that would please Henry VIII. Salads and hashed brown potatoes are dependably good, and it's hard not to fill up on the bread basket, especially the pretzel bread. Even the pricey wine list offers a few reasonable choices, if you look. Downstairs, the bar is cozy and casual, and serves the same food as upstairs, until 2 a.m.
