When Attico opens, at 219 S. Broad Street, it will seat around 140, with about a third of those seats outside for al fresco eating and drinking. The name means attic in Italian, but the menu leans Mediterranean and contemporary American.

    Two New Rooftop Restaurants Are Opening in Philly Very Soon
    Attico, the new rooftop restaurant coming to the Cambria hotel on Broad Street in Center City, is shooting for a mid-July opening. The owners were originally hoping to have it ready for June 18, just ahead of the hotel's grand opening event on June 20, but construction delays revised the timeline.
