The brand speaks with a whimsical and casual tone, drawing influence from both American and French characteristics.

Elements are inspired by Stephen Girard’s journey from Bordeaux to Philly. From the restaurant’s name to the typography and illustrations – each part conveys Girard’s rebellious spirit, his life at sea, and his legacy as a successful entrepreneur.

We’d like to be a place where weary travelers and curious locals alike can come together over good food and easy conversation. So wander over to Chestnut Way and stay for a bit. We’ll be waiting with a strong drink in hand.
