Stephen Starr's stylish addition to Rittenhouse Square pays tribute to French cafe culture, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week, ideal for a quick bite or a leisurely meal. Parc recalls the chic brasseries of Paris, serving classic French fare in a charming space. Red leather banquettes topped with frosted glass provide a sense of intimacy. Details such as well-worn wooden chairs, vintage framed paintings and photos and antique brass fixtures transport guests across the Atlantic. French doors spill onto a sidewalk terrace covered by a dark red awning perfect for dining "en plein air." Reservations are not accepted for outdoor tables.

"The dining experience is just as much about the service you receive as it is the food you eat. Our meal was excellent-very much a French bistro experience. Our server, unfortunately, basically ignored our table & only came when called over (I really hate doing 'the wave' but in this case it was necessary). He walked past our table fairly continuously during our meal but never looked over. He was too busy working on a bigger table with a bigger check. Meanwhile, our check wasn't chumpchange. The bussers saved the night- they brought us our meals, asked if everything was ok. I wish we could have tipped them instead. We left w/ full bellies, but felt disregarded. Even hostesses didn't say good night-too busy talking to each other."

"This is a good location, especially if you're going out for a night at the theater. The food was very good - very typical French bistro. No complaints about the food. While our server was very nice, she was overwhelmed with too many tables and spread too thin. As a result, her service to our table suffered. Also, they have this large chalkboard with the specials on it, that she dragged around to each table. We found that odd. The servers should know the specials and tell them to the guests, not drag around a board. Also, we ordered a round of 'slippery nipple' shots and the bar tender prepared hot coffees with Bailey's and whipped cream - Huh? Needless to say, we sent them back."

"We went here for the first time - we were craving pasta/pizza - and this fit the bill. We were seated next to the bar & kitchen entrance, which I thought was going to be annoying, but turns out it was fine - just a bit loud.
Calamari needed another minute in the fryer - breading fell off, and was too chewy. Greek salad was delicious, but would have preferred a more traditional oil/vin style dressing, not the creamy kind provided. Pizza sauce/cheese were good, but crust was dense and chewy signaling that the dough was probably overworked. The linguine with mushrooms and broccoli rabe was very good.
Our server was very friendly and attentive even though it was a busy Saturday night.
We'd like to try it again.

"Our 1st time dining here & we had a very good experience. Server started off w/ a great overall explanation of their concept (seasonal, farm-to-table) & an menu overview. My meal was delicious: oysters - clean, fresh (shucking could be improved); Tavern salad was well portioned and dressed; & the trout filet (which came recommended by our server) was perfectly cooked and flavors well balanced. 2 critiques: 1) Entrees arrived too quickly--we were not finished w/ starters when meals arrived--we observed this happening to other tables--I really hate being rushed. 2) Our server, while good, did go missing for a bit and repeated requests to food runners for a steak knife resulted in my husband having to get up and find one. But we'll be back!"

"A few months ago was my first time here for lunch and I did not get the mussels. My fellow diners did -- and I was jealous. So, for my second lunch visit, I knew what I was getting before I was even seated - a half portion of the classic mussels. They really were delicious and fresh. My colleague also got mussels, but the carbonara variation. A tip: half orders don't come with 'pomme frites' - so I suggest a side order to share because a) they are delicious and b) they can help mop up the lovely mussel sauce. Also, if you have time for coffee - have it. The restaurant presents it in a personal French Press - delicious and fresh."

"This is my third time going to Mio. The food and service are very consistent. The yucca fritos are so good - highly recommend. We both had the pork tenderloin with manchego with a wine reduction. It was good, but be cautioned - it was a bit on the salty side - probably the cheese or maybe they overseasoned the sauce and as it reduced, maybe it concentrated the salinity. At any rate, it was still a good dish. They have a happy hour lounge, which can get a bit loud and be heard in some parts of the dining room. But that is part of the ambiance."

"We've been to this location and other Jaleos in the area many times over the years. I would call our most recent experience mediocre. We ordered a delicious Condado de Haza. Overall our tapas dishes were good, not great. One was a special, croquettas jamon imberico; its crust was slightly overfried, had aftertaste (as if the fry oil needed to be changed), and overall flavor very salty. But our issues were more w/ the mediocre service. Our server was seated with three tables almost back-to-back - one of which was a large party. Needless to say, her attention was not on our little 2-top. In some ways, it was not her fault - the host should have spaced out seating her section, but nonetheless, it added up to a bland experience."

Manhattan sophistication meets comfort at Lexington Brass, a 110-seat neighborhood eatery located on the ground level of the luxury Hersha Group hotel, Hyatt 48Lex. A fresh, locally sourced menu by Executive Chef Chris Leahy features traditional American cuisine, while the social setting, sensible prices and gracious service foster a sense of familiarity among patrons, making Lexington Brass both a Midtown destination and a neighborhood staple.
