Lacroix named best brunch spot in Pennsylvania by The Daily Meal

The luxurious Philly restaurant at The Rittenhouse hotel serves 'kicked up' breakfast staples along with sushi and foie gras

Fine-dining restaurant Lacroix at The Rittenhouse hotel has been named "best brunch in Pennsylvania" for its Sunday buffet by The Daily Meal.

As the dining website described in its state-by-state list published earlier this month, Lacroix's menu includes all the breakfast mainstays, "but everything's kicked up a few notches."

Lacroix creates classic brunch dishes with extravagant additions, like buttermilk fried chicken with swiss chard and honey, buttermilk biscuits with pork roll, and salad of zucchini, squash blossom, and olives with green garlic vinaigrette.

The brunch buffet has received praise before, including last month from Philly Mag, which called it"the grandaddy of all Philly brunch spots," and Eater Philadelphia, ranking it as one of 20 essential brunches in the city in 2019.

At dinner, Lacroix's menu is prix-fixe with a wine pairing, and they also have caviar tasting menus starting at $85.

The restaurant is located inside the luxurious hotel The Rittenhouse at 210 W. Rittenhouse Square, Philadelphia. Most rooms start at $365 per night, and have a view of Rittenhouse park in Center City.
