When you walk into XIX Nineteen (200 S Broad St #19, Philadelphia, PA 19102) the views are breathtaking. This is by far the most beautiful places I've ever had the pleasure to dine at. We sat in the bar area and were quickly greeted by Gina the bartender. We ordered drinks and food. While we waited we walked through each dining room. Wow!
This place is amazing. I am happy to say the food lived up to the hype as well. Drink of choice was called 'Into The Woods' constructed of bourbon, honey cardamom syrup, angostura bitters, egg whites. I can't think of too many items better than a burger for lunch. I ordered the grass fed Angus burger cooked medium with all the trimmings, aged white cheddar, brioche bun, truffle shoestring fries. The meat melted in your mouth. Though this was only my second visit to Philadelphia, it has quickly become one of my favorite food cities. I will definitely be doing dinner here on my return visit. I can only imagine how incredible that experience would be.
