Planning is now under way for the 2013 Audi Feastival, an annual celebration bringing together Philadelphia’s top chefs and restaurants to benefit FringeArts. A highlight of each FEASTIVAL is the evening’s auction — a number of exclusive packages go up for bidding, with all proceeds directly supporting the arts in Philadelphia. The ultimate food-centric experience offered as part of 2012’s auction became an opulent reality in March, when six of the city’s most celebrated chefs created a dinner party to remember for an exclusive group of Philly-based patrons of the arts.
The roster was quite the dream team — Nicholas Elmi (Rittenhouse Tavern), Jon Cichon (Lacroix), Daniel Stern (R2L), Pierre Calmels (Bibou), Mitch Prensky (Supper) and James Beard winner Jeff Michaud (Osteria). Each chef contributed a no-expense-spared course reflecting his personal style. Wine for this once-in-a-lifetime meal, which took place at a beautiful private residence in Society Hill, was curated by Sommelier Jeff Benjamin of Vetri Restaurant Group and provided by The Wine Merchant.
While Team FEASTIVAL is coordinating the 2013 event and auction, we invite you to view photos from this 2012 Ultimate Dinner Party. And save the date for the 2013 Audi Feastival: Thursday, September 12, 2013.Back to Blog
