Garces Trading Co.

Trey Popp may not find many bargains behind the counters at Garces Trading Co. but he does find plenty to like on the menu.

Cuisine is culture, and Philadelphia’s Iron Chef keeps proving that there is apparently no limit to his talent for assimilation. Fast on the heels of Village Whiskey, a simulacrum of Swing Age Americana, Garces has served up another decidedly non-Latin venue. Garces Trading Co. basically embodies the American idea of a Euro-style café-cum-gourmet shop. Characteristically, the restaurateur nails the vibe, all the way to the Dansko clogs beneath the host’s charcoal suit.
