A modern masterpiece of Center City Philadelphia restaurants

A welcoming restaurant with Philadelphia flair

This city takes its food seriously. That's why we've poured our hearts into making sure the Red Owl Tavern excels. Located adjacent to Hotel Monaco, the modern, three-meal tavern boasts a menu that gives regional favorites a global spin, featuring only the best local purveyors, cheesemongers, farmers and sustainable fisheries. Executive Chef Jorge Chicas helms the kitchen at this welcoming space, where neighborly meets sophisticated and fancy meets familiar. Relish simple, seasonal flavors in dishes from locally-ranched skirt steak with chimichurri sauce to crispy yucca fries; tasty dishes get paired with craft beers and classic cocktails. Among soaring windows and cozy tables, enjoy smart and savory takes on American staples; our cheesesteaks are made with premium shaved rib-eye, and loyal patrons covet our house-cured charcuterie and butcher-shop cuts of steak. And while we continually balance the unique and familiar, we are always happy to meet the dietary restrictions of any guest we serve.
