Video: Marc Vetri And His Namesake Restaurant Featured On Food Network’s The Best Thing I Ever Ate; His New Cookbook Out November 1
As seen on the “Last Supper” episode of the Food Network’s The Best Thing I Ever Ate, a show that asks top chefs around the county to pick their absolute favorite food for a specific theme. This episode’s theme was “Last Supper,” where the featured chefs had to pick what they would want to eat for their ultimate last meal.
Iron Chef Michael Symon, who now is also one of the hosts on ABC’s new daytime food talk show, The Chew, didn’t hesitate to choose the pasta tasting menu at Vetri, declaring it to be his favorite restaurant in the country.
“If I had to go to one place for pasta, I would go to Vetri in Philadelphia, my favorite restaurant in America. I’ve never had a pasta there that is anything less than the best pasta I ever ate. [...] Marc’s pasta is breathtakingly perfect.” (Emphasis added.)
It’s true. The iconic Italian restaurant should be on everyone’s bucket list.
