Saturday lunch - Rittenhouse Sq.
It seems like a lot the chowhound favorites are either open only for dinner, or if they do lunch, it's limited to M-F or maybe Sunday brunch. I'm looking for something good and possibly a bit novel that is open at lunch time on Saturday. Flexible in terms of cuisine and $. Center City proper is also a possibility.
I am just reading this and, if the question is for today, I am too late. My wife and I had the same problem two Saturdays ago. We ended up at La Bourse, the lobby bar in the Sofitel Hotel. Not inexpensive, limited menu, but we were pleasantly surprised. She had an excellent salad and my panini was reasonably good. Actually, enjoy the place now as it is. Stephen Starr is supposed to be taking it over, according to one news report. For something more novel, you could always do afternoon tea at the Rittenhouse Hotel. I saw that recommended on CH a month or two ago.
