Built on the belief that everything modern needs firm roots in the past, R2L recalls the elegance of a bygone time and celebrates the excitement of what's to come. With a nod to tradition, R2L's design reflects the Art Deco look of its building's exterior and pays tribute to the mood and essence of that time.

With an eye to the future, Chef Daniel Stern takes the tradition of classic cocktail cuisine and brings it up-to-date with a modern twist—using his always-unexpected interpretation of American food.

MidAtlantic Restaurant and Tap Room:
Urban and Rustic. Past and Present. Tradition and Renewal. This is the essence of MidAtlantic, Chef Daniel Stern's latest culinary surprise. MidAtlantic celebrates the best of what was and what is to come, with a focus on reinterpreting the roots of traditional Philadelphia foods and Pennsylvania Dutch flavors. Here, the menu brings back the tastes, seasonings, spices and produce of the bustling and vibrant city market that once made its way from City Hall down to the Delaware River.

* Also, posting will be a little light here this week — we're holding down the fort at Grub Street Philadelphia while Kirsten is on vacation. Stop by.
