Butcher Bar

RESERVE A TABLE

When all your finance friends want to grab dinner in Rittenhouse, you might start Googling where you can donate plasma to afford an appetizer. Or you can just suggest Butcher Bar for that sweet spot of “nice for a weeknight” and cost-effective. Their menu is full of little twists on bar snacks, like confit duck wings, sloppy joe poutine, and house-made beef jerky. But if you come with enough people, order The Trough ahead of time. This giant wooden slab is topped with rotisserie chicken, house-made sausages, fries, and five or six other things that’ll give you a good sense of how medieval knights ate.
