I was recently in Philadelphia working at a conference. Everyone who has attended a conference knows that food is sometimes troublesome around a convention center. I lucked out. Within a 2 block walk was the lovely Le Méridien Philadelphia.
The restaurant, Amuse, was really nice with a great color scheme, attentive staff and a memorable menu.
A toasty hot, French baguette served with lavender scented French butter was almost a meal in itself. Now I understand the whole "French butter" thing. Really. It's different.
Loving the interior. Serene, but not stark. The staff never made you feel like they wanted to "turn" the table. I went back three times. I'll go back again.
My seat was on the banquette nearest the window. Best seat in the house. Love this hotel.
