Times Ten Cellar

> Location: Philadelphia

Tria has two Center City locations, both offering a casual vibe with a seasonally curated wine selection plus beer, cheese, cocktails, and affordable but filling small plates. Because the wine list is constantly evolving, it is kept small and doesn’t overwhelm. Do save room for a tasteful, and not overly sweet dessert.
