Breakfast: Whether it's over weekend brunch or daily breakfast, the best spot in the city for people watching and a caf� au lait is on the sidewalk or by the floor-to-ceiling windows at Stephen Starr's Rittenhouse Square paean to Parisian caf� culture. The brunch menu, not surprisingly, contains more French entrees, eggs and hors d'oeuvres than the breakfast menu, but neither comes close to being petit. Two-dozen selections, including a smoked salmon tartine and a Gruyere omelette, grace the daily menu, which is served starting at 7:30 am. Grab a seat and enjoy people-watching while savoring a delicious breakfast or brunch from this well-known restaurant.

French: While many restaurants may serve French food, few, if any, ever come close to recreating the entire experience of eating in France. Stephen Starr's Parc Brasserie manages to transport diners back to the old world cafes along the Seine. Details like doors salvaged from actual French bistros and distressed tile floors that appear lifted straight from a cafe frequented by the likes of Hemingway, Stein and Fitzgerald are brought together for an uncanny experience. The highlight here is the bread – crusty baguettes, flaky croissants and rich pain au chocolat – baked fresh all day. Diners will also find familiar classics: French onion soup topped with gruyere, steak frites and trout amandine.
