Serpico Is Finalizing Staff, Opening Is “Just Weeks Away”


Menu testing for Serpico | Copes corn ravioli, pickled and roasted pearl onions, chilies, and chorizo

The highly anticipated Serpico is in the home stretch. But Peter Serpico is still looking for a few key players, including a junior sous chef. Serpico has filled other positions at the restaurant including chef de cuisine. Anne Strong, who worked with Serpico at Momofuku Ko in New York has come down to Philadelphia to fill that role. Strong graduated from Penn State and had a career in the publishing industry before she began going to culinary school at night at the Institute of Culinary Education. She has also worked at New York’s Anthos and The Modern. Another New York transplant is Rich Fell, who has come down to be Serpico’s general manager.

A local face will also be in the kitchen. Jae Hee Cho, former sous chef at Stateside, under George Sabatino is also on the staff.

As for the opening date, the job ad says Serpico “is only a few weeks away from opening.”
