It's already been French, Israeli, and Southern-leaning, and now Marigold Kitchen has been reinvented yet again under new ownership. Chef/owner Robert Halpern has taken the sleight-of-hand techniques he learned at lab-like Alinea in Chicago and melded them with tastes from his national travels for his new American BYO.

Stay away, not worth it. The boyfriend and I went for brunch and were very disappointed. The food came cold, which we didn't get a chance to tell anyone because no one asked us if we liked our food. I ordered coffee, which was excellent, but I did not get a single refill despite placing the empty coffee mug as close as I could to the end of the table. When we finally mentioned the problems to the waitress, she offered to bring us more coffee (after we already had the check and were leaving?). Will not be going back there.

I travel for a history page- ezhistory.com and try alot of fare. marigold's stopped me cold or hot rather. In a town known for the revolution, the food was revolutionary to me.
Middle-Atlantic with a southern/french twist...WOW! I brought my own wine. The staff was excellent and the atmosphere, intimate. I had the $50. sampler and it was worth every penny. Franklin would be pleased.

Being adventurous foodies, we ordered the Chefís Tasting Menu suggested by our server and we were not disappointed. It was a perfect introduction to this cozy BYOB restaurant tucked away on a quiet tree-lined street in the historic university section of Philadelphia. Without exception, every dish brought to our table was fresh and beautifully crafted with an exceptional balance of flavors and textures. The tasting menu consisted of two items from each section of the menu: two appetizers and two entrees per person, plus a cheese platter with dessert and coffee. The service was attentive, friendly, and well paced. I can wholeheartedly recommend this restaurant for a most satisfying dining experience. You will not be disappointed.
