Last week SEI Investments Co. and Philly Mag hosted a cocktail party and dinner for invited guests at the Kimmel Center and Jose Garces’ Volver restaurant to hear David Bookspan discuss “The Art of Innovation.” Bookspan is one of the founding partners of DreamIt Ventures which helps startups achieve their next market milestones. SEI sponsors the Innovation Studio at the Kimmel Center, with art exhibitions and lectures; currently they’re displaying “Folding Deck Chair” in the Commonwealth Plaza at the Kimmel Center. (Please don’t climb on it, a fan already “sat” in the chair to take a selfie and they had to have it cleaned.)

Jose Garces is rolling out big changes for the second season at Volvér, his restaurant at the Kimmel Center. Effective immediately, the ticketing requirement has been abolished and starting Wednesday, September 24th, the menu format will change.
As of today the restaurant will no longer require tickets purchased in advance. Reservations can now be made through OpenTable or by calling the restaurant directly. A credit card is required to hold a reservation, similar to how some other restaurants do.
Starting on September 24th, the dining options also change. Gone is the pre-theater and performance menus. The restaurant will have two tiers, a six-course tasting menu for $75 or a twelve-course tasting for $150, not including tax tip or beverages. An optional beverage pairing will be begin at $95.
This marks a drop in price for Volvér where the performance tasting for two would set a couple back $448 with tax and tip. Now the twelve-course dinner for two would come in at $384 with tax and tip but no alcohol.
