Three Bells for Garces Trading Co.

Craig LaBan weighs in on Garces Trading Co. as a market, restaurant and of course as a lightning rod of PLCB controversy. But it is really the restaurant that impresses the Inquirer’s food critic.

The entire enterprise is uniquely ambitious in its multipronged scope – and some aspects, such as the market, house-cured charcuterie, and pastry cafe, have equals around town. But the restaurant is where GTC excels, with a wide menu of updated Euro classics overseen by executive chef Adam DeLosso that certainly places it among our top BYOB kitchens, not to mention take-out markets. If only Di Bruno Bros. could cook like this.

Three Bells – Excellent
