The Rittenhouse Spring Festival 2017 celebrated the beautiful Center City neighborhood’s best restaurants, entertainment, fashion, and community at the Hyatt at the Bellevue last week to welcome spring. From the moment you walk in you feel the buzzing energy of Rittenhouse, as people gather around the cocktail tables munching on buttery spinach phyllo rolls and poke cones. The DJ, Mole Street, was bumping music at the front on stage, right behind the spread of Parc’s cheeses, baguettes, and fresh fruit jams. The area’s best bartenders mixed up cocktails like lychee, magic potion, pina coladas to bring a taste of sunshine to the gala.
All proceeds went to the Rittenhouse Row, a non-profit organization dedicated to bettering the Rittenhouse community. The auction displayed incredible offerings from suede coats to dinner for two at some of Philly’s best restaurants.
If you’re ever looking for a good night where you can even feel good about indulging in Rittenhouse’s rich culinary culture, get your tickets for next year already before it gets sold out!
