- Reserve with OpenTable
- Judy Wicks opened the White Dog in an old brownstone on the Penn campus and then kept knocking down walls until she had a spacious, well-lit restaurant that's popular with everyone. The sidewalk tables and front bar are small and cozy, with a light menu. The spacious rooms in back carry the full menu, everything from Grilled T-bone Steak with Bleu Cheese Shallot Butter to Balsamic Roasted Organic Portobello Mushroom on Baked Parmesan Polenta sauteed broccoli rabe, with roasted garlic, grilled onions, toasted pine nuts and oven-dried tomatoes. There's a piano lounge for late evening coziness. Senior citizens have lunch at half price on Saturdays.
