This summer, beat the heat and head indoors to Rittenhouse Grill (1701 Locust Street) for live music, delicious seasonal specials, and more. The award-winning restaurant is celebrating its 25th anniversary and is renowned for serving the finest steak and seafood in the city. The restaurant launched a new Thursday night-themed-music series and seasonal specials this month!
Nestled on the first floor of the Warwick Rittenhouse Square Hotel, Rittenhouse Grill is centrally located within walking distance of Rittenhouse Row, museums, and the Avenue of the Arts, making it the perfect dining destination. The sprawling restaurant resembles a swanky supper club that accommodates upwards of 220 guests across a multi-level dining room. The attached release highlights the history and anniversary and includes photos!
New for June, Rittenhouse Grill serves seasonal specials, including jumbo sea scallops wrapped in bacon ($26), jumbo soft shell crabs served with a delicate beurre blanc sauce ($18 to $42), and an American Wagyu Delmonico steak ($95). Photos of the new seasonal specials are available upon request.
Also, diners can enjoy “BYOB Night” at Rittenhouse Grill on Sundays with no corkage fee. Guests may also choose a prix-fixe three-course menu for $68.
Beginning June 15 from 6 to 10 p.m., resident pianist Jason Long will entertain diners and bar patrons with weekly themed “Summertime Thursdays”. On June 22, Long will play R&B favorites featuring artists including Whitney Houston, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, and Al Green. On June 29, the restaurant features “The Philadelphia Sound,” with tunes by The Spinners, The Delfonics, Sigma Sound, Hall & Oates, and more. During July, Summertime Thursdays will take guests on a journey through the decades, featuring the ‘60s (7/6), ‘70s (7/13), and ‘80s (7/20), concluding with a celebration of the ‘90s on July 27. Rittenhouse Grill gives patrons a taste of Motown (8/3), Yacht Rock (8/10), Elton John and Billy Joel (8/17), and a night of Elvis Presley, Queen, and Prince (8/24) in August. The themed music series ends on August 31 with an ode to classic TV theme songs.
Each Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday night from 4:30 to 10 p.m. at Rittenhouse Grill, piano players bring all the hits to Rittenhouse Grill. Every Sunday, from 5:30 to 9:30, crooner Peter Cole belts out classics from Sinatra, Dean Martin, and Tony Bennett.
