Baril Opens Tonight in Rittenhouse

Tonight, Tuesday, December 6, 2016 Chef/Restaurateur Michael Franco launches Baril, a neighborhood bistro, steps from Rittenhouse Square. Inspired by the comforting cuisine of Provence, France, Baril features farmhouse-style southern French fare using ingredients sourced from our region’s agriculturally rich small farms and creameries. A hydroponic garden will grow fresh herbs and vegetables in house to be used in the kitchen and bar alike. Baril, where the motto is eat well, drink often, offers baril-logo-smallthe perfect combination of seasonal French comfort-food, carefully curated wines, and handcrafted cocktails.

“Baril is an extension of my home, I want guests to feel the same way like they are in a friend’s house sitting around the table drinking, eating, and exchanging stories” says to Franco.

Join Baril on Friday, December 9 from 6 to 10 p.m. for a grand opening celebration featuring complimentary hors d’oeuvres and great company.

Baril is nestled just off Rittenhouse Square at 267 South 19th Street in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Visit to make reservations or call the restaurant at 267.687.2608. And follow them on Facebook [/BarilPhilly], Instagram [@BarilPhilly], and Twitter [@BarilPhilly].
