Susanna Foo Coming Back to Town for One Night

Susanna Foo is coming back to Center City Philadelphia for one night as she will be cooking at Square 1682 this Sunday. Foo and Square 1682’s executive chef Guillermo Tellez will collaborate on the special tasting dinner. Each dish will be paired with wines from Pennsylvania’s Penns Woods Winery and a portion of the dinner’s proceeds will benefit Philadelphia Academies, a charity dedicated to expanding life and economic options for Philadelphia public school students through career-focused programming.
