Rittenhouse Neighborhood Favorites

At The PrivatGym™ | Rittenhouse, our Rittenhouse personal trainers and clients live locally.

We love our walking neighborhood with its variety of superb restaurants, shops and services.

Here are a few of our go-to spots:

Bacchus Market and Catering (215.545.6656) lies at the edge of the neighborhood. Even so, it’s our choice for casual catering and meals-to-go. Tracey and her talented team always excel. Try the Moroccan Lamb Stew.

Dizengoff (215.867.8181) is in the heart of the Sansom Street restaurant row. And may make the best hummus anywhere. Our Rittenhouse personal trainers and clients swear that it’s better than eating in Tel Aviv.

Along the same line. When you’re ready for updated middle-European comfort food, try Dizengoff’s sibling Abe Fisher (215.867.0088). It’s hard to beat a pork belly ruben.

Our Rittenhouse Personal Trainers say:
“When you’re going to be bad? Why not be bad with something good?”

Federal Donuts (215.665.1101) is our Rittenhouse personal trainers “dirty little secret” indulgence. The fried chicken – especially topped with za’tar or coconut curry – can’t be beat.  And the donuts: perfection.  Try the Tres Leches.

When we send flowers The PrivatGym™ | Rittenhouse we listen to our clients and go right to George Baker Flowers (215.545.8448). No one delivers plants and flowers with more style in Philadelphia.

Philadelphia’s original artisan bakery Metropolitan Bakery (215.545.6655) still stands out. Our Rittenhouse personal trainers love the healthy spelt bread. Clients tend to favor the sour cherry & dark chocolate cookies.

Mi Cumbia (215.735.7980) uses only all-natural ingredients including their own “Tierra Mia” products. This makes their exceptional manicure, pedicure and waxing services even more satisfying.

Philadelphia Children’s Foundation may not technically be a neighbor, but we love their mission: providing computers and specialized learning software to Philadelphia’s neediest schools.  As they say: “every student deserves a 21st-century education.”

Philadelphia Runner (215.971.8333) staffs their store with running experts. They know running, running shoes and feet. They’re our go-to place when we need athletic shoes. They’ve got the best brands and service.

When our Rittenhouse personal trainers and clients want a quick healthy meal we head downstairs. Real Food Eatery (215.608.8941) fills the bill with made to order proteins and tasty sides. We love the warm beets and the carrot fries.

Rescue Spa (215.772.2766) remains our clients’ first choice for all types of skin care. From classic facials to microdermabrasion they’re best in class. And Rescue has added massage, hair styling and make up services.

Finally, they’re not local, but having the Under Armour Brand House (215..985.5860) across the street rocks. Not only do they supply our beloved Eagles with team gear. They’re also The PrivatGym™ | Rittenhouse’s source for our team’s work gear.
