PHILADELPHIA, Pa. (CBS) —  A second “Tria” restaurant has opened in the Rittenhouse Square area — this one focusing on beer and bar food.

Owner John Myerow calls the new Tria Taproom, at the former location of Rum Bar, 2005 Walnut Street, a “masculine version” of Tria Café, also near Rittenhouse Square.

“Tria Café is more of a wine bar, but Tria Taproom, our new place, is more of a beer-focused  restaurant,” he tells What’s Cooking.  “But we’ll also have wine and cider and soft drinks on tap, and a really great menu of bar food.”

And in Lafayette Hill, Pa., Brittingham’s has reopened after extensive renovations.


The restaurant, at 640 East Germantown Pike, is in an historic building that general manager Tim Killeen says has been in continuous use as a tavern since 1743.

He says the latest overhaul included changes to the ambiance, the drinks, and the food.

“The play of 1743 is falling into a lot of our branding and everything, because we don’t want to lose its historical value,” Killeen says.   “The original main building was used from everything from Prohibition to the Underground Railroad.”
