18th Street in Rittenhouse Square

Outdoor dining has always been in vogue in tony Rittenhouse Square, where restaurants overlook the namesake park and shoppers stroll by tables with the day’s haul. Many restaurants along 18th Street between Market and Locust have set up semi-permanent outdoor structures to accommodate even more alfresco dining.

  • The seasonal menu from a.kitchen at AKA Rittenhouse Square hotel pairs perfectly with city rhythms, all enjoyed from within the protected streetery steps away from Rittenhouse Square.
  • The eye-catching green streetery outside Bar Bombón is even prettier from within, where partitioned tables each have their own light and rug for an at-home feel at this plant-based Latin restaurant.
  • The Dandelion’s alleyway streetery is a double win for customers: London-inspired pub food with a view of the restaurant’s always-stellar plants and window boxes.
  • Not only does Harper’s Garden have an outdoor veranda, but the cocktail bar and restaurant also offers personal greenhouses at its tables on 18th Street.
  • Each table inside The Love’s wood-framed streetery has its own partition and light (plus HVAC!) for an intimate experience right in the heart of Center City.
  • Outdoor seating has always been one of the main draws at Parc, and now guests can enjoy their French fare overlooking Rittenhouse Square from a protected streetery.
  • Draping plants, white twinkle lights and even a mini-fountain make for a transformative outdoor dining experience at Rouge — all within view of Rittenhouse Square.
  • The fine Italian dining customers have come to expect from Via Locusta is available alfresco thanks to ramped-up curbside seating complete with HVAC.
