This one’s too divey. That one’s too fancy. When it comes to going out, it seems there is no happy medium.
There is. And you’ll find it today at Noble American Cookery.
Todd Rodgers and Bruno Pouget’s Rittenhouse restaurant promises a vibe that doesn’t come with a patina of dirt or douchier-than-thou clientele (here’s hoping).
Noble is done up in whitewashed brick and blond, reclaimed woods with framed mirrors lining the walls. Downstairs, window seats face into the space for al fresco dining without wobbly sidewalk tables. The second floor’s factory ceiling has three huge skylights that fill the place with natural light.
The food (Hudson Valley duck, grass-fed rib eye, Pocono river trout) is made with local ingredients that you’ll gobble right up.
Yes, we’re pretty sure it’s just right.
