Parc Restaurant in Philadelphia

May 23, 2012 by

Summer in the city means dining al fresco. And there’s no better place to pull up a chair in Philadelphia than a sidewalk table at Parc.

Outside, rattan chairs and bistro tables sprawl across the sidewalk and under Parisian awnings, looking like a watercolor come to life. Inside, a zinc bar, faux smoke-stained ceilings and mirrors, and faded signage that belies the eaterie’s true age—Parc opened on Bastille Day 2008—continue the French brasserie vibe.

But the star attraction here is the simple, classic bistro fare.

The menu is full of familiar, homey options, like steak frites, escargots in a hazelnut butter and trout amandine served with haricots verts. And don’t forget about the fresh house-baked baguettes.

With it’s location on the edge of Rittenhouse Square—the city’s central meeting place for everyone from artists to attorneys and preppies to punk rockers—pulling up a sidewalk seat here means good eats along with prime people watching.
