When Tela’s Market & Kitchen at 1833 Fairmount Avenue opened back in November, there was the promise of intimate chef’s table dinners each week. Chef Chad Williams kicks the dinners off next Friday, January 24th at 8 p.m.
The $75 per person dinner (plus tax and gratuity) will be a four-course family-style meal prepared by Williams and accompanied by a complimentary beverage pairing. The chef’s table dinners are limited to 12-seats and reservations are required. To reserve one or more seats, email firstname.lastname@example.org with your preferred date and number of guests. Parties of twelve also have the option to “buy out” the chef’s table for the week.
Menus will change weekly and will reflect the freshest ingredients available in the market.
Chef Williams served as opening chef de cuisine at Amada and has recently returned to the area after some time on the West Coast.
In a time of year when we tend to be even more gluttonous than usual, nurturing our generous, empathetic impulses seems not only prudent, but even virtuous. Of course, the creative among us have figured out how to combine gluttony with generosity…
To wit, in support of relief efforts in the Philippines in the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan, Chad Williams, of the newly-opened Tela’s Market in Fairmount, is teaming up with chef Jasper Alivia (of Cuba Libre), and Poi Dog Philly to host a benefit dinner this Sunday at Tela’s for the American Red Cross . The suggested donation is $55 per person and includes four courses of Filipino favorites with some Philadelphia twists.
Poi Dog’s contributions, for example, will be a Philadelphia Lumpia with Long Hot Sauce (long fried spring rolls stuffed with sharp provolone, ribeye and caramelized onions) and a version of the pineapple bibingka (coconut rice cake) that you may have seen on their truck. Chef Williams will offer kare kare, a Filipino peanut stew featuring Wyebrook Farm oxtails, and Chef Alivia is putting up lechon kawali, roasted pork with gravy.
Beer, wine and cocktails will be included and they are not to be missed. Jonny Medlinsky (Khyber Pass Pub) and Catherine Manning (Franklin Mortgage & Investment) are teaming up on cocktails and perhaps even a firkin brewed specifically for the event.
Reservations are required. Save your seat by emailing: email@example.com
Tela’s Market [f8b8z]
Tela’s Market & Kitchen is now open at 19th and Fairmount. Owner Daniel Greenberg and chef Chad Williams have teamed up to open a market specializing in meat, seafood and prepared foods to eat at the market or to take home. A coffee bar serving Four Barrel espresso and coffee makes the corner an early morning destination as well. A once-weekly, 12-seat dinner table will make Tela’s (pronounced TEE-la’s) a dining star as well.
