Expect New American fare at a.kitchen, a sleek, modern eatery helmed by the High Street Hospitality Group in Rittenhouse Square. With many dishes coming off the hardwood charcoal grill, highlights include dishes like spiced black garlic cauliflower, grilled octopus with coriander yogurt or dry-aged steak with grilled caesar salad. Awarded as one of America’s Best Wine Restaurants by Wine Enthusiast, the bar features global wines (with bottles hailing from the likes of Austria and Slovenia), craft beers and ciders and classic cocktails like the Moscow Mule or a Gimlet.
