Russet Is Your Perfect Date Night Restaurant

Rittenhouse’s adorable BYOB offers a four-course dinner-for-two every Friday.

Salami Toscano

Salami Toscano

Russet could easily be the most adorable restaurant in Philly — quaint service in a Philadelphia brownstone, plus gorgeous, hyper-local dishes by Andrew Wood. The entire dinner experience through and through is delightful — romantic, too, especially with these Friday Date Night menus.

Starting tomorrow, April 7th, and every following Friday until the end of August, Russet will bring back its menus-for-two: four courses including dessert for $90 a couple. And like the restaurant’s a la carte menu, it changes weekly (Wood keeps his menus intensely seasonal).

Here’s tomorrow’s menu:

Salami Toscano
ricotta, crostini, herb salad

Mycopolitan mushrooms, stinging nettles, parmigiano-reggiano

Grilled Bronzino for Two
roasted potatoes, charred scallions, salsa verde

Seasonal dessert
