About

From Facebook:

Executive Chef Regis Jansen's menu features comfort food with Southern roots. Menu highlights include crawfish pie, a fried tomato sandwich with jalapeno mayo, and vegan meatloaf. Menu items are prepared with as many locally sourced ingredients as possible, and bread baked in house. REX 1516 is vegetarian/vegan friendly and is owned and operated by husband and wife team, Jill Weber and Evan Malone of JET Wine Bar. The bar features reclaimed wood panels from the Frank Furness-designed Rittenhouse Club with a white marble top.
