Tops In Tapas Not Enough

Jose Garces
Chef Jose Garces of Amada has plans for an empire of four restaurants within the next few years. In addition to the already announced Amadita [Now known as Tinto], he’s signed the lease for an 8,0000 sqft Mexican place at 40th and Chestnut. Garces wants to do Mexican again because “I feel the work I did at El Vez is not quite finished.” And he’s shopping for a Rittenhouse area location for his fourth concept, Latin with Asian influences.
