University City’s Colorful New Bistro

Say “Bonjour” To Louie Louie

The newest bistro in town, Louie Louie, opened last month at the Hilton Inn at Penn bringing French-inspired food and an eye-catching color pallet to University City. Marty and Sydney Grims, the father-daughter duo of Fearless Restaurants, has ventured on to expand their take on American food with a French twist at Louie Louie. The team is best known for their restaurant White Dog Cafe, which now has 3 locations, as well as The Moshulu, Plantation Restaurant, Daddy O Restaurant & Hotel, Autograph Brasserie and Tuckers Tavern.

The menu features French comfort food staples such as fresh oysters, steak frites, escargot and lyonnaise salad. While the food is sure to excite your pallet and send your mind to the shores of southern France, the ambiance is what truly sets this restaurant apart. Designed by Kate Rohrer of Rohe Creative, Louie Louie embraces an Art Nouveau style featuring stunning black and white marble flooring, brightly colored velvet couches, brass finishes and visually enticing patterns. The 6,000 sq ft space offers seating for 160 diners, with 15 seats at the bar, 30 seats in the lounge and another 50 seats outside on Walnut St. Have your own French mini vacation by stopping into Louie Louie for lunch, dinner or a weekend brunch.
