Nestled in one of the city’s most elegant settings (the luxury Rittenhouse Hotel), this legendary Philly dining room has withstood the ebb and flow of dining trends with timeless sophistication. The wine list is much the same: the expansive tome is stacked with many of the world’s greats while maintaining a contemporary feel. There’s simply no better place in town to drink vintage wine, whether it’s high-end Burgundy and Rhône you’re after, or farther-flung regions just now getting the recognition they deserve. Thus is the sort of list that is democratic in its vintage offerings, offering age in a variety of different price points.
