Get an Early Taste of 4 New Restaurants at Feastival
Why should you consider buying a ticket to Feastival? The best reason is probably because the more than 75 chefs who participate in the FringeArts fundraiser absolutely love the event. And if they’re looking forward to it, you can be sure they’ll be putting out some great bites.
Tickets to the party on Thursday, September 18, are $250, here.
“Feastival is my absolute favorite tasting event of the year,” said Peter Woolsey of Bistrot La Minette during a mini preview tasting at Cook. His forthcoming restaurant la peg has a strong connection with Feastival, since it will be the flagship restaurant in the new FringeArts building at the corner Columbus Boulevard and Race Street.
This year’s event won’t be at that building. It will be outside, under a series of huge tents on a pier at Penn’s Landing, and the entertainment will take advantage of the space.
According to Audrey Claire Taichman, who owns Cook, Audrey Claire and Twenty Manning Grill and is the founder of the event, guests can expect to see aerialists dressed in LED lights dancing across the huge stone arch that stretches over the plaza, as well as stilt-walkers and other acrobatics.
The list of participating restaurants is huge, and in addition to la peg, you’ll be able to get a first taste or preview of three other new restaurants if you get tickets to the 7-10 PM fiesta. The newcomers are:
1) la peg
2) Bing Bing (East Passyunk dim sum shop from the Cheu Noodle Guys)
3) Aldine (Rittenhouse restaurant from George Sabatino)
4) V Street (vegan street food in Rittenhouse from the Vedge couple)
