The redesigned rustic-meets-modern ambiance compliments the Contemporary American menu which features premium cuts of meat, ocean-fresh seafood and signature raw bar. Seasonal outdoor dining on the flagstone patio is available upon request. <br />In 2013, Blue Bell Inn underwent extensive renovations for over a year. Various historical aspects were enhanced through thoughtful restoration and new materials such as solid white oak and porcelain tile floors were introduced to create a stunning architectural mélange spanning three centuries.

"What a fantastic dinner! And our waiter Dave, only made it all the more. We had a chance to relax with our drinks before our appetizer arrived. We chose oysters for the appetizer and Dave was well versed in their origin and taste.
I decided on the Branzino and couldn't have been more delighted. It was crispy on the outside and tender on the inside with a marvelous tasting cous cous. My husband had the filet and he said it was cooked to perfection. Plus the portion size was perfect.

Radice [ra-dee-chay,] ‘root’ in Italian, serves farm-fresh food that is cooked in Delaware Valley’s largest wood burning oven! 90” in diameter, it is one of the famous Renato ovens created especially for Radice. With 80% of the menu cooked in the oven, Radice offers food that is healthy, delicious and unique! Toto Schiavone once again introduces Philadelphians to his heritage of the true and simply Italian world of authentic village cooking.

"We hadn't been back to Radice for a while so were looking forward to our dinner. Even our waiter commented that the drinks were taking a long time. Strange because the bartenders were not new faces.
My husband ordered Osso Bucco (a favorite) and I decided to try the veal dish with mozzarella and spinach. I was especially delighted that my dish came with some beautiful looking vegetables instead of a starch. Unfortunately, the food was not even close to hot. When I asked my husband he said the same thing. What a shame because the food was absolutely decicious.
Why didn't we send it back. First I truly dislike warmed over food, it tends to lose its flavor and you hear too many stories about what happens when you send food back.
This is a neighborhood favorite so we will return but perhaps for appetizers and drinks at the bar where we have never been disappointed."

STK artfully blends two concepts into one—the modern steakhouse and a chic lounge. A large central lounge area is furnished with creamy leather banquettes and textured crocodile tiles, and is surrounded by an elevated dining room for more formal dining. Theatrical lights illuminate each table, while a DJ creates an energetic vibe throughout the entire space. STK Midtown is located in Midtown Manhattan, just steps from the bustling Theatre District. STK Midtown includes an outdoor patio and separate bar during summer months. As anticipated, steak is the main attraction. With a female-friendly mindset, STK offers small, medium and large cuts of meat, as well as naturally raised options and market fresh fish entrees. Aside from steak, signature items include Parmesan Truffle Fries; Lil’ BRGs; Shrimp Rice Krispies; Sweet Corn Pudding; and Jumbo Lump Crab Salad.<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />

"Walk through the door of STK and you feel as though you have entered another era. The interior is spectacular without being overwhelming.
Our server was warm and attentive and the food was excellent. Strongly recommend the Parmesan Truffle Fries. Our steak was done perfectly and the portions are perfect.
We had a truly wonderful experience and will go back.

"What a lovely night at Bobby Van's. We were shown to a table on the landing betweent the first and second floor of the restaurant. We had all the privacy in the world and could look out onto the street from our perch. Our waiter was attentive without being overbearing and made some excellent suggestions. He even took care of switching out an item on the special menu.
Both our entrees were very good and it was truly an enjoyable evening."

One of America's most successful restaurants, this New York steakhouse opened in 1977 and has been a hit ever since. It is one of the most trafficked restaurants in New York City and among the most celebrated steakhouses in the world. Specializing in fresh seafood and lobster and assorted steaks and chops, Smith & Wollensky is well recognized for its healthy portions, seasoned service staff and pop Americana ambience. The painted wood exterior is dark forest green trim on sparkling white, with latticework trim. The elegant interior has turn-of-the-century appeal and design elements including shining brass, dark wood accents and polished wood floors. Adjacent to Smith & Wollensky's is Wollensky's Grill. The Grill (entrance on 49th St) is open from 11:30AM till 2:00AM but does not accept reservations.
