Porta Philadelphia occupies a former furniture store in the heart of Center City. As with our wabi-sabi nature, we left as much of the original architecture intact as possible, restoring the beautiful plasterwork and skylights of the building, while adding a few symbolic touches of our own. With three floors of drinking and dining space, Porta is the largest restaurant in the city and has become a destination for groups large and small — after-work get-togethers, Friday night dance parties, 300-guest weddings, corporate events — or just a dinner for two. Invested with the spirit of the neighborhood and the culture of the 215, Porta Philly was quick to be known for some of the best pizza in the city (thanks Food & Wine). And yet, we're still here to learn from the Philadelphia greats: the ones who made this place what it was and what it will become. We're honored to be a part of that story.
