20. Fountain Restaurant at the Four Seasons
If you’re looking for the best service in Philadelphia, there’s no need to look beyond the Fountain. And the menu is right there, too, at this staple of our high-end dining scene, offering smart American cuisine with French overtones. Aha moments abound, from the modernist take on a crab “cocktail” to the warm chestnut flan that accompanies the prosciutto-stuffed pork loin. This is far from the staid, conservative board you might expect from one of Philly’s longtime white-tablecloth temples, but these days, the kitchen brags about its rooftop herb garden and partners with Dock Street Brewery on inventive collaborations. It’s a restaurant that’s growing with the times, and one that tourists and locals alike should consider for a special night out.
Perhaps a cocktail? Peruse the iPad wine-and-drinks list and head toward the cocktails, where local ingredients and spirits will make any citizen’s ego swell with pride.
