Alfa Restaurant & Bar
This Rittenhouse gastropub is popular with the after-work and date-night crowds. The dining room has exposed brick walls and banquette seating. High-brow adaptations of pub foods comprise the menu; favorites include oyster shooters with pickled ginger salsa and burgers with caramelized onions and applewood-smoked bacon. Sofas and candlelit tables fill the bar, where the Joe Montana, a 16-ounce mug of Victory Sunrise Weisse beer, and the Hello Kitty, a cocktail of lychee green tea and strawberry-infused vodka, are specialties.
