The Brasserie Restaurant Parc, recalls the chic brasseries of Paris, serving traditional bistro fare in a charming and comfortable space.
Full of French traditional furnishers and decoration, this stylish addition to Rittenhouse Square pays tribute to French café culture, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week. Ideal for a quick bite or a leisurely meal, the menu is filled with classics such as onion soup, escargots, steak frites and towering plateaux de fruits de mer. The baguettes are made in-house and are the perfect accompaniment to the charcuterie platter. Trout Amandine and Beef Bourguignon, Sole Meunière pair perfectly with the diverse selection of wines on our expansive wine list. Sip a Kir Royal at the original zinc bar or just enjoy a café au lait while sitting outside watching the passersby. Parc offers a perfect experience at any time of the day for any occasion.
I do love their Steak au poivre, done the traditional way, but I switch the garlic spinash with a Purée (mashed potatoes). For the French, finding good bread is very hard . Their baguette is great but I love the Pain de Campagne with nuts and Cramberries, served warm.
I do recomand their wine list. It is very complete and the selection is quite French traditional as well. I usually go for the Chateauneuf du Pape.
The staff is very very busy. However, they will bring you with great smiles, the pure brasserie service, with a touch of elegance. Go outside if the weather is nice. If you ever go to Parc on busy days, such as Mothers day, you will have to be very patient, so please make a reservation…
A bit of Paris, in Philadelphia.
