Meritage Is Doing A Flower Show Tasting Menu


The Philadelphia Flower Show is in town from March 1-9, and Meritage is getting in on the action with a new, flower-based tasting menu that’ll be running from Saturday to Saturday, March 1 through March 8.

Chive blossoms, pansies, lavender, apples, elderflower and squash blossoms, all going in your food-hole. And all for just $39 per person which, if you checked out this morning’s post on the prices of prix fixe menus around the city, you’ll understand is a killer bargain.

Check out the menu after the jump.
