Le Virtu Recreating James Beard Meal On July 13th

According to a YouTube video of the event, “Chef Joe Cicala of Le Virtu headlined at the James Beard House in New York on April 21, 2011. Cicala and his team worked tirelessly for two days to prepare for this gastronomic experience, which is considered the culinary equivalent of a musician playing Carnegie Hall.” Now, Le Virtu (1927 East Passayunk Ave.) is giving you a chance to experience that same meal.

On July 13th, the feast begins with alfresco cocktails and hors d’oeuvres at 6:30PM. Cost is $100 per person and seats can be reserved by calling Le Virtu at 215.271.5626
