Avenue Of The Arts Restaurants
10 ArtsAddress: 10 Avenue of the Arts, Philadelphia, PA 19102
Showcasing the bounty of locally grown produce and organic ingredients, celebrity chef Eric Ripert has dished up yet another success with 10 Art. His mission is simple: to offer the best of contemporary American cuisine. His menu is exemplary: Ripert’s elegantly fine-tuned technique balances the complexity and heartiness of many of his most notable dishes. The Steamed Mussels are served in a chorizo and white wine broth, while the Pork and Beans highlights braised pork belly in a summer bean ragout. Understated and masterful, the Bouillabaisse has market fish and shellfish in a saffron and tomato broth.

UPDATE: This restaurant is no longer in business! Elegance and class grace this upscale eatery, as apparent from the striking architectural space as the fashionable guests that fill it. At the table, seafood reigns king, and Chef Alfred Portale is a master at transforming each fish into a stunning, if not sometimes eclectic masterpiece. With a raw bar, winning wine list, and seasonal menu that celebrates the bounty of the oceans around the globe, there is not much else the Striped Bass could do to offer a more chic, elegant, and delectable dinging experience.
