It’s well known that East Passyunk is one of the hottest neighborhoods in Philly at the moment. Not a week goes by with announcement of some new restaurant or shop going in along that angular avenue. Last night, the East Passyunk Business Improvement District held a sneak preview for their upcoming Flavors of the Avenue event. A selection of restaurants who will be participating in Flavors brought an array of tidbits for nibbling and photographing.
If the preview (held inside Urban Jungle’s space) is any indication, this year’s Flavors of the Avenue is going to absolutely delicious. There was house cured duck proscuitto with a dab of spicy, honey-sweetened mustard from Watkin’s Drinkery, a whipped banana dessert from FUEL, and a really wonderful beet, toasted walnut and baby green salad from Salt and Pepper.
For pictures of last night’s preview, there’s a slideshow embedded after the jump.
