Bluestone Lane Rittenhouse Square will offer a comprehensive menu and table service proposition modeled on the flagship Bluestone Lane Collective Café found in West Village New York. The menu will feature signature dishes including Avocado Smash topped with tahini, heirloom cherry tomatoes, feta, sunflower sprouts & e.v.o.o, Coconut Quinoa Porridge topped with cashew cream, sliced almonds, and mixed berries, and gluten-free Banana Bread topped with fresh ricotta, toasted pecans, banana and drizzled with organic honey.
Bluestone Lane Rittenhouse Square will feature custom powder-coated La Marzocco espresso coffee machines, serving Bluestone Lane’s signature coffee blend created in partnership with fellow Melbourne-Australia roaster Niccolo Coffee.
Stylishly designed by Julia Sullivan, Creative Director of Caswell Design Group, the space will leverage the iconic landmark features of the Radisson Blu Warwick Hotel, whilst providing a clean, light, and minimalist aesthetic. The center bar will offer an interactive barista experience with bench stools wrapping the bar and window benches, with extensive seating offered at the rear of the space.
