For the feeling of a traditional bistro in the heart of an American city, many Philadelphians choose to head over to Rose Tattoo Cafe. The seasonal, eclectic menu at this restaurant emphasizes locally sourced ingredients and innovative flavor combinations. For example, try the sea scallops and Gulf shrimp served with a saffron-fennel emulsion, or dig into a plate of roasted veal tenderloin topped with a chanterelle mushroom vinaigrette. Lunch favorites include the baked mushroom ravioli topped with toasted pine nuts and the house-made rustic flatbreads with toppings that change from day to day.
Food aside, the atmosphere at Rose Tattoo Cafe is worth noting. Featuring lots of dark wood and filigreed wrought ironwork that divides the restaurant into cozy nooks, as well as a bright, open, plant-filled atrium, the Rose Tattoo Cafe has seating options suitable to any situation, from romantic dates to business lunches.
