Lacroix Restaurant at The Rittenhouse
Your milkshake brings some adventurous people to the yard when you're Rittenhouse Square French-staurant Lacroix, (located at the Rittenhouse Hotel), especially because said milkshake involves both <em>foie gras</em> and <em>blood orange</em>. If you thought that was interesting, it's also serving up the likes of suckling pig, Spanish octopus (it's got an accent), and sweetbreads, in addition to a build-your-own Bloody Mary station. Celebrated head chef Jon Cichon traveled to places like Portugal, Thailand, Japan, and even <em>America</em> to get inspiration for the flavors he's dishing out.
Attention early risers: Treat yourself on Christmas morning to a scenic breakfast overlooking the park at Lacroix on Rittenhouse. Seatings start at 7 am and run through 10 am, so start your holiday off with sourdough pancakes, fresh fruit, house-baked croissants, and lots of French press coffee. Lacroix has the same breakfast offering for Christmas Eve as well so you can start celebrating first thing in the morning.
