If we made a Greatest Hits list of Philly BYOs, Audrey Claire would be right there at the top of it. They were one of the first spots in the city to dig into the whole farm-to-table thing, and they’ve been cooking seasonal American food on their little Rittenhouse corner for more than 20 years now. Come here with a bottle of wine, a wad of cash (they don’t take cards), and a few friends, and sit outside for one of the best people watching situations in the city. And some pretty great food.
