West Philadelphia’s Marigold Kitchen has made it a bit of a tradition to tease out some of their seasonally changing menu items. And for late summer, co-chef/owners Andrew Kochan and Tim Lanza, along with chef Keith Krajewski are offering their take on the summer barbecue, among other theatrical plates.
Among the 13-15 plates that make $90 menu-free feast include an American backyard barbecue in the form of frozen dots, and a Red Snapper Calçotada, a Spanish barbecue dish with charred baby leeks and hazelnut romesco.

Marigold Kitchen is doing something special on Tuesdays. Each Tuesday this summer, the Marigold team will be offering a five-to-eight course experimental menu highlighting ingredients sourced from local farmers’ markets and foragers.
The dinners are $65 per person and limited to 25 diners a night. The staff at Marigold will explain the inspiration behind each dish as well as discussing the farmers who grow the produce.
In addition to the Tuesday night dinners, Marigold Kitchen has also rolled out their new early summer menu.
