Our final meal of the Philadelphia weekend was brunch at Russet, a gorgeous Rittenhouse Square restaurant helmed by Chef-Owners Kristin and Adam Wood. Located inside an 1877 year old townhouse, Russet has a simple, elegant atmosphere that feels almost like being at an upscale dinner party.
Russet was just a delightful meal from beginning to end and the location couldn't have worked out any better. When we walked out the door we entered right into a blizzard. There would be no sightseeing to be done before our train ride home in this weather. Instead we walked about 30 feet away to Monk's Cafe and finished the trip in the back bar, drinking Pliny and enjoying the last few hours with friends. It was really a perfect Sunday.
