Stopped in for a little breakfast and was not disappointed. Ordered the avacado toast and it was so delish. Perfectly seasoned and the eggs just the right level of runny for that sort of dish. Front of house was very attentive and kept my table clean and drinks topped off whenever it needed it. More

A group of 6 of us went to Southgate for New Year's Eve dinner. I had been to Southgate several times before but mostly for happy hour or snacks. The whole experience was wonderful - the food was fantastic, the staff was accommodating, and we all had a really fun time. Will definitely be going to this neighborhood spot more frequently. More

Even though it was restaurant week, we were not rushed through the meal. Everyone really enjoyed their meal. There is enough staff to bring out your food and take away dirty plates that all of the food was served piping hot and plates didn't linger. The manager checked on us to make sure everything was ok. We also appreciated the BYOB. More

Discover Rittenhouse Square

Bordered by gleaming high-rises and featuring a well-manicured park, Rittenhouse Square sits in the midst of Philly cheesesteak territory, but you'll also find neighborhood restaurants offering custom shaved-beef creations alongside lighter vegetarian options. More formal Italian cuisine is also traditional in this section of town, and it's a nod to the immigrants who came over in the 18th and 19th centuries. Here, you’ll find everything from tagliatelle, gnocchetti and exotic raviolis to veal tenderloin and polenta. If you’re hungry for a snack and the weather’s cold, consider a warm soft pretzel from a street vendor. If it’s warm, opt for a classic Italian water ice or a gelato sampler.
