Spice Dinner at Abe Fisher

La Boîte Dinner at Abe Fisher

La Boîte Dinner at Abe Fisher

Just over two years ago, Steve Cook and Michael Solomonov invited New York “spice whisperer,” Lior Lev Sercarsz to come down to Philadelphia to collaborate with Percy Street’s Erin O’Shea. The results were spectacular as this post lays out.

On Wednesday, June 15th, Sercarsz, the owner of New York’s famed spice shop, La Boîte, returns to Philadelphia for a night at Abe Fisher. At Abe Fisher, Sercarsz will join with executive chef Yehuda Sichel for a four-course meal that will combine the Eastern European Jewish influences of chef Yehuda’s cooking with the powerful flavors found in La Boîte spices.

There are seatings at 6 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. and the four course dinner is $60 per person. An optional three-course wine pairing is available for $30 per person. Beverages, tax and gratuity are not included.

Get your tickets from the Cook N Solo store, we’re sure they’ll go quickly.
