Lunch at XIX Nineteen – Philadelphia Hyatt
If you’re looking to switch up your lunchtime routine in Philadelphia or South Jersey, look no further than restaurant XIX Nineteen located appropriately on Floor 19 of the Hyatt hotel, on Broad and Walnut streets.
Upon entering, you’ll find yourself in a white room with an impressive dome-style ceiling and architectural charm.
Sit down for a café lunch, which includes a three-course meal for just $22. Your first course will be a walk-up table with a selection of authentic meats and cheeses, and various salads. The second course options include pasta, a panini or wrap, pizza, steak, or fish of the day. For the third course, walk back to the table for their daily selection of individual desserts, parfaits, and small cakes—I enjoyed a plated tasting of lemon squares, cookies, mango custard in a shot glass, and fresh strawberries and blueberries.
The entire meal comes with a soda or iced tea. My table’s waiter neglected to offer us the extra drinks, but we were so busy enjoying our food, we didn’t mind.
According to the website, XIX Nineteen also offers brunch, a café breakfast, dinner, and afternoon tea.
If you park at the Bellevue garage, you’ll have to take an elevator up to the hotel lobby, an escalator, and a second elevator to reach the restaurant, but the aesthetics and rooftop view of the city will be worth it.
