Back-to-Basics with Balcony Restaurant in Philly

The DoubleTree by Hilton Philadelphia Center City has debuted its new restaurant, Balcony. The restaurant is located on the mezzanine level, in perfect view of the new, unique, ultra-modern chandelier with fiber optic lights.

According to Bill Fitzgerald, general manager, DoubleTree by Hilton Philadelphia Center City, “the opening of Balcony reflects a new era in the hotel’s history and comes at a perfect time.” With the recent renovations, the hotel has also established a new name, logo, and a new global brand identity.

The restaurant (and its menu) was just one of many of the hotel’s two-year long $13 million renovation program. What was formerly The Academy Café is now a destination for those seeking comfort food and a family-friendly menu, with a contemporary twist.

Thanks to Executive Chef Neal Drinkwine, Balcony’s new menu takes a back-to-basic culinary approach, comprised of comfort food staples and classic-turned-contemporary dishes.
