Stepping off the elevator at the 37th floor of Two Liberty Place, one might experience a rush of anticipation for what is to come coupled with a sense of belonging as though “we’ve been here before.” With nothing left to chance, Chef Daniel Stern and his team at R2L have created the ideal ambiance to do just that.
As one of the best Philly restaurants, R2L combines the elegance of a bygone era with the thrill of the present and the newly discovered. The Art-deco style of the building’s exterior and the modern twist on American cuisine for which Chef Stern has become so well known make this a favorite spot for natives and visitors alike.
Baking Craftsmanship by Pastry Chef, Peter Scarola
With a nod both to tradition and ingenuity in his desserts, Peter Scarola remains true to the restaurant’s intent to couple the elegance of the past with the excitement of the future. He shares Stern’s passion to source ingredients locally, choosing to bring unexpected complexity to simple flavors, always surprising the diner with an experience far beyond what was anticipated.
Peter Scarola with Billy Penn
Recently featured on Billy Penn’s new Tasty Fakes episodes, Peter Scarola chose to re-create the bliss of childhood simplicity found wrapped up in a TastyKake Swiss Roll. He accomplishes––yet again––an elegant but simple dessert that highlights the art of baking and the life experience food provides.
