According to the James Beard Foundation, Philadelphia has made great progress in the field of gastronomy over the last two decades Philadelphia has a variety of cuisine, from the famous Philly cheese sandwich to Italian cuisine, from fine restaurants to local delicacies. In order to sustain this successful development, two more awaited and ambitious restaurants are being opened in the city. On August 12, the Four Seasons Philadelphia officially opens its doors and the Beard Award–winning chef Greg Vernick’s Vernick Fish restaurant opens on the ground floor. On the top floor, famous chef and restorer Jean-Georges Vongerichten will welcome its guests with its restaurant.
The restaurant, which will be located on the 60th floor of the hotel, will provide a visual feast to the guests who come with the city view and glass-walled elevator before the meal presentations. Designed by London architect Norman Foster, the restaurant offers stunning views of Philadelphia from every table.
Vongerichtenars kitchen will be led by chef Nicholas Ugliarolo, who has worked with renowned chef and restorer Jean-Georges for six years. The menu will include salmon with corn flour crust, hamachi sashimi blended with spicy strawberry juice and a la carte options. Like Egg Caviar, the signature dishes of the classic Jean-Georges will also be on the menu.
On the ground floor of the hotel, Beard award-winning chef Greg Vernick’s Vernick Fish restaurant is waiting for the day it will open to offer its guests carefully prepared menus. Designed by restaurant designer Adam Tihany, who works with renowned chefs such as Daniel Boulud and Thomas Keller, the site covers an area of 3,400 square meters.
