Best of Philly

2015 Dining Experience

Upstairs at Vetri

What was once a storage room where chefs used to nap is now a Napa-esque private space with a giant wooden table, a beautiful demo kitchen, and glass cases that show off the wine collection. If you see it firsthand, that means you’re partaking in an intimate and enviable experience: one of the regular small-group demos, classes or dinners with the region’s top tastemakers. A recent lineup on the calendar? A cocktail class with L� from Hop Sing, a BYOB dinner with Vetri’s sommelier, and a pasta-making class with Marc himself, which cost $300 but was sold out in mere minutes.
