Press & Accolades

The Rittenhouse in the News

The new approach was a way for Cichon to create focus for the 15-year old Lacroix, and to impart a fresh sensibility to a restaurant with a reputation for being traditional. “When we switched to the single ingredient, it was a way for us to mix it up,” he says. “We always changed, maybe a dish a week. There was no rhyme or reason. But this way, with a brand new menu about every thirty days, it was a way for us to keep it fresh and avoid monotony."

The Rittenhouse received a Four Star Award from Forbes magazine and is constantly ranking number one on TripAdvisor for Philadelphia’s hotels." via Luxe Digital.
