I could use your opinion...I am going to dinner on Thursday at Matyson and was wondering, what do you hounds do after dinner in that area? I was hoping to find a bar or just a chill place to hang out? I appreciate any suggestions.
ps- I am VERY excited about dinner, after all the good feedback from here!
I would recommend going to Tria for some dessert wine. its right around the corner and you can sit outside if it's a nice night. If you aren't too stuffed from Matyson you can order some cheeses to go with your wine.
If you like cocktails, you could try Franklin Mortgage & Investment Co. Pretty impressive joint.

I, too, am in love with Capogiro...but I don't know if I could stomach 2 desserts...but it couldn't hurt to try! LOL... I am thinking a visit to Capogiro (if we can stomach it), then a walk to Rittenhouse (hopefully with no rain--to cancel out 1 dessert) and then a trip to Franklin Mortgage...I do love a well-made cocktail...=)
Thanks for all the tips!
Hm. If it doesn't rain and you're willing to take the walk (since you said you like a well-made cocktail), you might also consider APO (the former Apothecary, 13th & Chestnut-ish).
Or there's also the bar at Tinto, where I recently got a fabulous French martini (as in the "traditional" with Lillet) with fired/caramelized lemon zest (what is that process called anyway?). It's not a chill place to hang out (unless you're grabbing a snack on a Sunday afternoon or something), but it might be the spot serving my new fav drink in town.
Personally, I'm a pig, and a Matyson dessert followed by some lovely Capogiro gelato sounds perfectly perfect to me.
