Housed in a turn-of-the-century brick townhouse in Rittenhouse Square is Russett, a farm-to-table gem showcasing French- and Italian-inspired fare from owners Andrew and Kristin Wood. With a daily-changing menu, expect creative dishes like salmon tartare with kosho hot sauce, squab al Milanese in black pepper gravy or grass-fed chuck eye served atop butcher's blood polenta with rainbow chard. Though the restaurant is BYOB, the menu suggests wines influenced by the seasons.
