James Beard Award winner Chef Greg Vernick and Chef Jeff Michaud took over the kitchen at Osteria located at 640 N. Broad Street in Philadelphia and prepared seafood inspired by French and Italian cuisine. The amazing evening is part of a growing and glowing private chef series hosted by URBN Food & Beverage.
Osteria has been open since 2007 and is one of the country’s most critically acclaimed Italian restaurants. Osteria customers at this event shared how the food here is “one of a kind and keeps them coming back for more”.
The five course meal began with stuzzichini (appetizers), which included:
Second courses were fish based because that obviously wasn’t enough food above (insert sarcasm here)…
A large selection of Italain dolci (or desserts) was also in store for us.
