Jan 25, 2013 - Dining out in Philadelphia

Philadelphia’s connection with dining goes back centuries, and during the spring and summer months, outdoor dining is all the rage. With all the historic architecture to be found in Philadelphia, dining al fresco is indeed a good option, and there is no better way of getting around to your dining destinations than with a charter bus, coach bus, party bus, mini bus, passenger coach or school bus rented from Bus Company Philadelphia. Travel around in style and comfort in your fully equipped rental bus as your head into Philadelphia for a tour of it’s best outdoor dining destinations.

Parc at Park Rittenhouse is Stephen’s Starr’s take on the brasseries of Paris, right down to the aproned waiters. During fine weather, the outside tables are in high demand to those who wish to see and be seen. The menu features French classics such as warm croissants, escargots, bouillabaisse and towering plateaus de fruits de mer which is complemented by an extensive wine list of predominantly French and American wines. Rental bus diners should take note of the French onion soup, which is rich and cheesy, and the strong, dense flavor of raclette make’s Parc’s cheeseburger worth ordering.

Rental bus visitors will like El Vez, with its fantastical Mexican decor, including a gold plated low rider and guacamole at your tableside. The music here is loud, and the crowd is young and good looking. Menu offerings are traditionally Mexican, including sweet corn soup with huitlacoche, cactus and crab salad, tacos of mahi mahi, duck confit flautas and a fresh selection of ceviches. The slow-roasted pork tacos spiked with jalapeños are a must try for rental bus visitors. Outside dining is great at El Vez during warmer months, where the hip and happening crowd parties the night away.

The City Tavern has a history going back to 1774, when it was visited by John Adams. Today, owner Walter Staib serves rental bus diners with authentic and updated classic Colonial cuisine at the restored Tavern. Located in the most historic square mile in all of America, in the Independence National Historical Park, the City Tavern offers rental bus diners a quintessential Colonial dining experience, with rooms lit by candlelight, staff dressed in Colonial costume and tables set with pewterware. Try the West Indies pepper pot soup, medallions of veal or a tavern lobster pot pie. For as close to a Colonial dining experience as our American founding fathers had, take your rental bus over to the City Tavern for that historical Philadelphia feel.
