When you first sit down at River Twice, you’ll notice that there’s no silverware on the tables - and it’s because every table has built-in utensil drawers. Everything at this East Passyunk BYOB is that thoughtful, from their service to the menu that changes every single night. Not everything is great - but it’s all interesting, and the dishes are unlike anything we’ve seen before. You might see beef tongue with a fruit and nut mole, $45 mashed potatoes topped with caviar, or a foie gras milkshake for dessert.
