The Dandelion

British Gastropub

  • 83

Housed in a storied Victorian in Rittenhouse Square is The Dandelion, an elevated British gastropub helmed by Stephen Starr. Expect British-Indian gastropub fare with modern takes on classics like chicken and duck liver parfait accented by chutney, baked herbed trout, lamb sheperd’s pie mash or fish & chips. Housed in multiple cozy, pub rooms (also serving a daily high tea) with wood-accented bars, patrons sip British cask beers and ciders alongside cocktails like the King Henry’s Kick (blanco tequila, mezcal, orgeat, ginger, lime).
