Every cook loves getting a bigger kitchen, and Lee Styer is no exception. Two-and-a-half years after moving Fond half a block from its original niche on Passyunk Avenue, he still remembers the liberation he felt.

D’Artagnan, the meat and charcuterie purveyor to many of the best restaurants around the country, is celebrating its 30th anniversary with a charity dinner party at Le Cheri. Yes, tickets are expensive. But we’re talking five courses with paired wines being prepared by some of the best chefs in the city, in celebration of one of the top purveyors in the business.
And the menu? It looks kind of amazing.
Sunday, April 12 kicks off a new wine and cocktail tasting series at Fond. David Snyder is a lawyer turned food critic turned back to lawyer who dabbles in the role of wine expert. Snyder is the man behind Fond’s wine list and is working with beverage manager Kristian Fidrych to create a tasting menu.
The series will occur monthly and each installment will have a different theme. The first event will be an introduction to the tastings, focused on spring flavors.
Light bites from chef Lee Styer will accompany the tastings and complement each wine and cocktail.
The tasting is $50 per person and begins at 2 pm. Give the restaurant a call at 215-551-5000 to make reservations.
