Peter Woolsey Offers Teases of La Peg

la-peg-fringe-arts-squareLast night Feastival had a party for the event’s sponsors and beforehand several chefs showed off the dishes they would be serving at the FringeArts fundraiser to the assembled media. Peter Woolsey, who served a spicy tuna tartar dish, also dished on his new restaurant, La Peg.

La Peg, which Woolsey says is opening “imminently” is located in the FringeArts building at the corner of Columbus Boulevard and Race Streets, opposite the Race Street Pier. Woolsey says the restaurant will be a “French-ish” brasserie. The restaurant will certainly be large and multi-faceted. There will be a sit down restaurant with seating for 100, a 12-seat bar, a mezzanine and a 7,000 square foot exterior space.


The menu at La Peg will feature French-inspired small plates, a handful of larger plates as well as a $30 full dinner option. La Peg will bake all of its breads in-house, including the brioche for the house burger.

La Peg will also be a performance space, with weekly cabaret shows on Fridays. Though Woolsey was cagey when it came to exactly when La Peg would open, it will certainly be before this year's Fringe Fest kicks off on Friday, September 5th and reservations are now being accepted on OpenTable for Wednesday, August 20th and later.

Menus will be available later this week.
