Marigold Kitchen

501 S. 45th St.
Philadelphia, PA, 19104, United States
TEL: (215) 222-3699

Housed on the first two floors of a 1907 Victorian mansion, this University City restaurant is well-loved for its BYOB policy and its ever-changing menu of creative New American cuisine. Inside, the restaurant is divided into multiple rooms with high ceilings, a fireplace, and an antique oven used to store wine glasses. Employing molecular gastronomy techniques, local chef Robert Halpern crafts innovative dishes, accompanied by a seemingly endless parade of amuses-bouches and petits fours. Options may include squash soup with thyme foam, squab with chocolate foie gras ragoût, and for dessert, basil crème brûlée.

Insider Tip:

If you forgot to pick up wine before heading to the restaurant, stop by Fine Wine & Good Spirits, which is only a 12-minute walk away.
