Combining the laid-back, all-day appeal of a diner with the innately comforting character of classic Cuban fare, Rosa Blanca is the best of Latin and American culinary culture from Philadelphia’s top Latin-American chef: Jose Garces. Now open, Rosa Blanca will feature a rotisserie in the kitchen, comfort food on the menu, and a take-out counter with a variety of Cuban coffee & pastries. Rosa Blanca will be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. In addition, enjoy our milkshakes and extensive rum program featuring a selection of mojitos.<br /><br /><br /><br />House Specialties<br /><br /><br />

"Service did seem a bit slow considering that when we came in for our 5pm reservation they were not busy at all. We made it early because we were headed to a concert and didn't want to feel rushed. Our server was very friendly but there seemed to be a long break between ordering drinks and food and receiving them. All 5 of us in our group thought that the food was very good and worth the wait. I had the snapper which was the market price fish of the day and it was delicious! Drinks were also very good. The front of the restaurant has the feel of a "diner". Ask to be seated in the main dining room in the back for a different atmosphere"

Behind the wrought iron gate, past the herbaceous patio and through the atrium is Talula's Garden, the warm and elegant Washington Square eatery from Aimee Olexy and Starr Restaurants. The modern menu, prepared with carefully-sourced ingredients and a light European touch, changes with the seasons. The artful cuisine, hospitable staff, sustainable spirits, and a focus on cheese make the dining experience here incredibly memorable.

"Very nice place! Limited menu and a little on the pricey side. But what we got we all liked. Pitcher of sangria was $42 and was not a full size pitcher."

Intermezzo is an Italian restaurant with homemade pasta, fresh meat & seafood, plus sumptuous dessert. Our lunch prix fixe menu is the best deal in Chelsea and our unlimited champagne brunch is the perfect way to enjoy your weekend.

"This was our first time at this restaurant and we found it on restaurant.com. Great service and the food was very good too. They took our reservation right on time which was important to us since we were going to a concert at Madison Sq Garden."

"We love Mexican/Southwestern food but didn't like this place at all. $10 margarita pitchers for happy hour but they were horrible and we sent them back. Guacamole was below average and my friend's chicken tacos were stale. The server was apologetic and had management make adjustments to our bill. It would have been nice for management to come to our table but they didn't."

Allow us to guide you into whatever you want, be it the best burger in town, a dry aged steak, or the finest cult California Cabernet. Indulge yourself in our local grown organic cuisine or just have a glass of wine and a snack at the bar. Let us host your business meetings in one of our new private rooms or just have a casual sidewalk salad and Martini. Come watch local sporting events on our big screen TV’s in the bars or have an intimate dinner for two in our cozy booths. I want to be your everyday cafe or your special occasion restaurant.<br>As much as things change, they stay the same. Fine food, Fine Drinks, And Fine Service is what I'm talking about!<br>See you on Main Street!<br>Derek

"The food and service were both very good. We had dinner at Derek's the Saturday of the annual arts festival in Manayunk. Loved the mussels over angel hair."
