Since 1998, Rouge has set the tone for dining on Rittenhouse Square. The contemporary bistro was an early pioneer during a time when Rittenhouse was not a dining destination, and 21 years later it remains a beloved favorite among locals and visitors alike for its ambiance, food and parkside views. Husband and wife owners Maggie and Rob Wasserman recently gave Rouge a revamp – a brighter, more spacious look and feel, an updated menu (don’t worry, the burger survived!) and a cocktail menu created by Hop Sing Laundromat owner Lê. Rouge’s new Executive Chef Sean McPaul has deep roots in Philly. After graduating from the Culinary Institute of America, his first professional post was at Stephen Starr’s Tangerine. After two years in San Francisco, Sean returned to Philadelphia and Starr, working at Talula’s Garden, and after working in New York at Upland and High Street on Hudson, Sean has once again returned to the Philly fold, this time at Rouge. Join us in welcoming him back as he prepares a tasting meal of Rouge menu highlights, including a first course of shareable plates (lump crab with crème fraîche and horseradish / duck wings with orange, gochujang and scallions / chicken liver mousse), followed by three chili shrimp with Calabrian, pickled and finger chilis, garlic and white wine; poached sea trout with bearnaise, french radish and caviar; and chocolate mousse with blood orange marmalade, hazelnut crumble and whipped cream. Twenty-first birthdays are always a special occasion, and Rouge’s is no exception!
