A deluxe hotel like The Rittenhouse deserves a deluxe restaurant, a fitting description for Lacroix, named ?Restaurant of the Year? in 2003 by Esquire magazine.
Located on the second floor of the Rittenhouse Hotel, Lacroix features elegant d?cor and a broad view of Rittenhouse Square, which combine to make the ambiance at Lacroix as enjoyable as the meal itself.
The creative French menu changes with the season and in the past has included favorites like pumpkin soup with fried shallots and tuna steak with salmis sauce. The wine list is excellent and extensive – thanks to the 4,000-bottle wine cellar .
The tasting menus can be catered to your preference – three-, four- and five-course selections are offered at set prices during lunch and dinner.
Sunday Brunch at Lacroix – which features such delectable dishes as baby lamb chops with garlic crust and banyuls sauce, niman ranch smoked bacon, quail eggs with artichoke, golden beet and shiitakes, and french baguette toast with apple, raspberry and rosemary jam – is also highly recommended.
