Susanna Foo Tribute Dinner At Meritage


Anne Coll, chef at Meritage, has worked with a lot of big names (Georges Perrier, for example). But she learned a lot of her best tricks from Susanna Foo while working at her mentor’s eponymous Susanna Foo Chinese Cuisine on Walnut Street.

Now, in honor of that time, she’s putting together a Susanna Foo Tribute Menu at Meritage. It’ll be available from Wednesday, Oct 9 through Saturday, Oct 12, and features versions of “her mentor’s famous dishes from Susanna Foo Chinese Cuisine.” The menu is four courses (plus an amuse), and is going prix fixe at just $39 per person. Reservations, of course, are strongly recommended.

Check out the full menu after the jump.
