Located in the middle of Philadelphia's charming Chestnut Hill neighborhood, Paris Bistro has made quite a splash since it opened in late January 2014. The setting and food are authentic bistro - the crowd is lively and the menu is reminiscent of the many bistros that dot Paris' arrondissement. Downstairs, the jazz cafe features the area's best talent playing a mixture of standards, Great American Songbook classics and music from the Jazz Era of the early 1900's. Make an evening of it with reservations for dinner upstairs and a jazz set after (seating in the cafe is on a first-come, first-seated basis).<br /><br />

"Such an enjoyable evening with my husband dining at the bar at the Paris Bistro's downstairs Jazz Cafe. Terrific singing by Canadian artist Patrice Jegou accompanied by Frank Debussolo's Quartet. And the food was delicious! Especially enjoyed the cauliflower appetizer--wow. We will be back as often as we can get there."

Set on the ground floor of the vibrant boutique hotel, Archer New York is the inviting yet industrial David Burke fabrick. <br />From the Latin ‘faber’, meaning ‘artisan’, fabrick’s moniker is a nod to the brick & mortar facades of the historic Garment District, the bricks of pink Himalayan salt that line Chef Burke’s patented beef dry-aging room, and to New York City. <br />Guests may gather under the airy skylight or in hidden pockets at intimate tables to sample from the modern American menu emphasizing sharing and seasonality. True to form, Chef Burke's fabrick menu will feature a variety of playful yet polished dishes ranging from snacks and small plates, vegetarian & classic American dishes to hearty entrees and indulgent desserts. <br />Guests may imbibe in a refined cocktail and some light bites in the Archer lobby’s Bugatti Bar. Sidle up to the lounge for a pre-dinner aperitif or, in the warmer months, relax outside in the hotel’s outdoor patio with a signature cocktail.

"Menu looked interesting on line when we reserved for a post-theater dinner, but the meal far exceeded our expectations--so delicious, and each dish so unexpected. Super interesting flavors and textures, and they all work together. Thoroughly enjoyed our meal--it was fun AND delicious AND satisfying. Terrific service. And: Terrific options for vegetarians. Buzzy, energetic atmosphere but we could hear each other talk. Will definitely return!"
