R2L is the embodiment of sophistication, elegance and fun; everything that dining should be. With an eye to the future, Chef Daniel Stern takes traditional American flavors and brings them up-to-date with a modern twist — resulting in his unique interpretation of Creative American Cuisine. <br /><br />The food and service recall the elegance of the past with an atmosphere that invites and entices. A place to linger and lounge, R2L takes center stage from high atop Center City-a place where spectacular food and dining is topped off with spectacular, endless views.<br /><br />BAR2L is the perfect place for happy hour & for meeting new & old friends. For private dining, 3 boardrooms & the Pinnacle Room round out the experience at R2L.

"My wife and I are 77 years old and have dined many places on many continents. This is just a top of the line restaurant, located in the top of a building with great views of Philadelphia. We took three other along for a special dinner, and needless to say this is a kitchen that prepares their menu to perfection. It is not inexpensive, but if you can afford it or are ready to splurge, you won't regret it. Simply wonderful."

Béarnaise transports the flavors of Paris to Capitol Hill. Located at 3rd and Pennsylvania Ave. Southeast, Béarnaise serves bistro fare in a humble, but chic, atmosphere describes as "A French Revelation" by The Washington Post. <br /><br />Inspired by their childhood memories in Montreal and years of training and living around France Chef Spike Mendelsohn and his sister, Micheline Mendelsohn Luhn, opened the bistro to rave reviews. <br /><br />In the lively dining room, guests dine on classic French dishes with a twist in comfty leather booths surrounded by antique mirrors and vibrant original artwork from Parisian galleries. Pair your meal with a bottle of wine and indulge in decadent desserts to make any meal feel like an escape to France.

"We were very impressed. Before a show at the Folger we were looking for a quality kitchen within walking distance. Having eaten at another French Restaurant only two weeks before on 14th Street, we ordered the same food to compare. Bernaise won hands down! Also, the service, often criticized in the reviews, couldn't have been better. The place is not fancy, but the price is right and the food was good. The wine list is sparse but well selected. We'll return."
