Say Farewell to Neighborhood Favorite

Bring your appetite to Italian standout Amis Trattoria one last time this summer! The award-winning restaurant announced recently that it is closing its doors Aug. 30—so whether you’re looking to indulge for brunch, dinner or happy hour, take the short stroll from your 1500 Locust apartment soon.

Amis has been a local fave since its opening, having become known for its eclectic menu and equally enchanting atmosphere. On the latter front, Amis features an industrial style, with exposed beams, brick and a sleek, wooden bar. The space uses an open-kitchen concept, so diners can get right in on all the culinary action, as their dishes are prepared right before their eyes. The combination of bar seating, cozy tables and comfy booths makes Amis a perfect fit for any kind of outing: whether it’s date night with your sweetheart, a lively post-work get together with colleagues or a meetup with friends.

Just as exciting as the atmosphere are the menus. Amis is open for both brunch and dinner, with the former being offered from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. every Sunday. Dive into unique offerings like sweet potato pancakes or frittatas baked with fresh, local veggies. If you come for dinner, expect to indulge on some authentic Italian, with everything from pork chop parm to handmade fettucine. And, of course, no Italian meal is complete without dessert, where you can choose from options like chocolate pizzelles or lemon tart.

Amis has also been a popular spot for drinks, with a wine list that showcases nearly 100 wines from around the world, as well as a creative cocktail menu and a full collection of craft beers, many made right here in our area.

Since the restaurant is only six blocks from your 1500 Locust apartment, it’s an easy walk from home, one that will allow you to take in all the ambiance of a summer night in the city along the way. So make your reservation now and hurry in to see all that Amis has to offer!
