Louie Louie, the long-awaited concept from Fearless Restaurants, opens this week with lunch, dinner, and brunch at the Hilton Inn at Penn.

The European-inspired bistro and bar, which takes the place of Penne in the hotel 3611 Walnut Street, will begin service this Wednesday, July 11th.

The 6,000 square-foot space features colorful, lavish-yet-cozy furnishings designed by Philly-based Rohe Creative, with 160 seats inside, 50 outdoors, 15 at the bar, and a 30-seat lounge in the hotel lobby.

The menu is best described as classic, French-inspired comfort food with a few American touches — think dishes lobster bisque, buttery escargots, a fried calamari po’ boy — with cocktails, craft beer, and wine at the bar.

As of Wednesday, Louie Louie will be open from 11 a.m. until 11 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 11 a.m. until 12 a.m. Friday and Saturday, 9 a.m. to midnight on Saturday, and 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Sunday. Check out the menus below (click to embiggen) and make your reservation here.
