Restaurant recommendations near Rittenhouse Square for anniversary?

My wife and I will be in Philadelphia for our anniversary on October 4 and staying near Rittenhouse Square. We'd be grateful for recommendations for a restaurant we can walk to for dinner that night. Price no object. Cuisine flexible. Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

  1. Lacroix is one of our favorites that we go back to consistently for our anniversary, it's in the Rittenhouse Hotel on the northwest corner of the Square. Food is incredible and inventive, Chef Levin does amazing things with flavors you'd never think of together. I think it's one of the best restaurants in the city, and perfect for a special occasion.

    1. Tinto and Matyson are great in the Rittenhouse area. matyson is BYOB

      1. Tinto is a good rec, so is Matyson. I'd add Barclay Prime to the list if you like steakhouse fare. If not, nevermind. No matter where you go for dinner, make sure you head to Capogiro for gelato afterwards. There are two locations, one directly across the street from Tinto at 20th and Sansom, and the other at 13th and Sansom.

        1. We like Tinto and Matyson very much, but for an anniversary, my vote is for LaCroix. When you make your reservation, tell them it's an anniversary. It's really special.

          1. Another vote here for Lacroix!
