A cross-city sister to the Old City Continental martini bar, restauranteur Stephen Starr launched this Rittenhouse Square restaurant/lounge in 2004. Known for its international tapas, dishes are meant for sharing, including calamari salad, lobster mashed potatoes, and hanger steak with blue cheese. A futuristic light fixture with dangling globe lights is the centerpiece of the three-story, open space. The first floor has diner-style seating, while the second floor's sunken dining room has hanging wicker basket chairs. The rooftop deck is a popular nightlife spot during the summer months and is partially enclosed so that it’s serviceable year-round.
The Continental is only a five-minute walk from the Roxy Theatre on Sansom Street, making it a convenient spot for a dinner-and-a-movie date.
