Townsend East Passyunk

We are thrilled to return to our original South Philly location on East Passyunk Avenue!  As we move into summer, we look forward to local vegetable harvests to execute our French classics with modern sensibilities.  Enjoy our a la carte menu or 5-Course Chef's Tasting Menu in the dining room or at the bar as we welcome you into our home!  - Chef Townsend Wentz

"The emergence of Townsend, however, reaffirms the timeless virtues a carefully measured and updated take on fine dining can still hold."

Townsend Dining Room FinalTW

Townsend Bar


A perfect spot for a pre-dinner cocktail or a late-night rendezvous, Townsend's polished Cherrywood bar is a favorite with locals and industry insiders alike. Serving cocktails grounded in classic technique, our bar staff collaborates to bring balanced and layered drinks through an elevated understanding of the ingredients within. With twelve eclectic wines by the glass and on tap, Townsend's bar was #4 in Philadelphia Magazine's 50 Top Bars 2015. Full dinner service is available at the bar during dining hours, as well.
