New Restaurant French Bistro Baril in Rittenhouse Square

This December, big changes are happening in the Rittenhouse area of Philadelphia! The former Crow and the Pitcher restaurant and bar has re-opened, after months of reestablishing itself after the departure of their executive chef, as Baril!

Michael Franco — owner and operator of Crow and the Pitcher is looking to focus the cuisine at Baril to skew more toward that of the south of France and have a Mediterranean influence. Dishes on the new menu will have fresh ingredients and bright flavors as opposed to heavy sauces with a lot of butter.
