The Philadelphia Museum Of Art And Starr Events To Host A Four-Night Tiki Pop-Up Restaurant Under The Stars On The Museum’s East Terrace, June 28-July 1
To celebrate the Philadelphia Museum of Art’s not-to-be-missed summer exhibit opening Wednesday, June 20, Gauguin, Cezanne, Matisse: Visions of Arcadia, the museum’s East Terrace will transform into a Polynesian oasis for a Tiki Pop-Up Restaurant hosted by STARR events and Granite Hill restaurant.
And unlike last year’s one-night-only event, the island-inspired dinner will take place during three nights, Thursday, June 28 through Sunday, July 1, 6-9 p.m., during which guests can enjoy a lengthy list of specially handcrafted cocktails, mains, sides, salads and dessert.
For $48 per person (excluding tax and tip), the feast appropriately includes a whole roasted pig, Hawaiian coffee-smoked baby back ribs, butterfish and macadamia pesto wrapped in banana leaves, molokai sweet potato with caramelized onion and cinnamon rum butter, and pineapple upside down cake. Peep the whole menu here (PDF).
At the bar, rum is the star of the lineup with sips of Pink Flamingos, Mai Tai, the Big Kahuna, Polynesian Princess and more. Diners will receive one complimentary cocktail for the evening, otherwise it’s cash bar.
Reservations can be made by calling (215) 684-7990. And we suggest you act fast; we just got word the first three nights are already sold out!
