Sure it’s fun to order just what you want off of a restaurant’s menu but sometimes the camaraderie of a shared feast is what you’re really hungering for. That’s when a large format meal at one of Philadelphia’s best restaurants is what you have in mind. So gather up some friends and make reservations for these family-style dinners.
Amada is making your dreams a reality once again with their Summer Pig Out.
Their semiannual, all you can eat Pig Out is happening this Sunday, June 26th. There will be seating times at 1 p.m., 4 p.m., and 7 p.m at the Old City restaurant. For $60, you get to enjoy three courses of family style deliciousness, including endless suckling pig.
Consider this a test run to see how much you can eat before your inevitable Fourth of July hotdog binge.
Spots are limited and tend to go quickly (especially since you don’t need a group to reserve a seat). Call (215)625-2450 to make sure you get a spot.
Jose Garces’ planned restaurant at 2401 Walnut Street finally has some details associated. The first floor restaurant will be called 24 and will feature “health-conscious wood fired fare.” The restaurant will offer a full bar and is aiming to open in the second quarter of 2016.
Garces and his culinary team will also have a research and development kitchen adjacent to 24.
In other Garces Group news, Amada New York is getting closer as final hires are being made. The first New York restaurant from the Iron Chef will be opening shortly with chef Justin Bogle at the helm.
And mark your calendars for Friday, March 18th. That’s the date of the Garces Foundation’s Annual Benefit.
