Color It Rouge

Is there any better place to be on a nearly-balmy, almost-spring day than Rouge?
Rouge, on Rittenhouse Square, is Philadelphia's most seductive hangout. The people watching (both inside and outside the restaurant) is great. The drinks are plentiful. The burgers and omelets are absolutely dreamy. And with a helpful hostess like Renee and attentive servers like Jen what more could you ask for?
I suppose you could call Rouge a bistro, a boite or a brasserie. I call it an unpretentious jewel box filled with interesting people, fresh, simple dishes and tempting drinks. And all of this comes with admirable intimacy and an extraordinary view.
