No longer content wit’ Whiz, Philadelphia has become a cheese-lover’s paradise. Here are five cheese dishes you must try now.
July 14th is Bastille Day and Stephen Starr’s French brasserie, Parc’s 5th birthday. The Rittenhouse restaurant is celebrating with an extravagant celebration featuring special St. Germaine cocktails and new petit ($65 and serves 1 to 3) and grand ($130 and serves 4-6) plateau dishes that include snow crabs, king crabs, lobsters, Taylor Bay scallops, mussels, littleneck clams, West Coast oysters and more.
And what’s more: An accordion player will be in the restaurant from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. playing classic French music.
