South Philly Chefs George Sabatino, Scott Schroeder And Joe Cicala Team Up To Bring You An Outdoor Food Festival At Le Virtu, Sunday, January 20
South Philly favorite Le Virtu will pay homage to the Italian tradition of shared food and drink in the winter months with an outdoor festival on Sunday, January 20, called La Cottora.
Not only will the fest include food from Le Virtu’s Chef Joe Cicala, but will also dish up plates prepared by chefs from some of the best South Philly spots.
The taste and spirit of the Italian region of Abruzzo will come alive at this event. The people of Abruzzo are known to party outside even in the middle of winter.
The meal will be prepared in a fire-heated cauldron in the outdoor garden, and served with tasty drinks outside.
This tasty night costs $70 per ticket and tickets can be purchased here.
Double bonus alert: all proceeds will benefit Project H.O.M.E., a non-profit organization whose goal is to end homelessness in Philadelphia.
