10 ARTS A BEEHIVE OF ACTIVITY – ERIC RIPERT BOOK SIGNING, CUPCAKE & CHAMPAGNE HAPPY HOUR- THE RESTAURANT SCHOOL
Earlier this month I stopped by 10 Arts at the Ritz-Carlton across from Philadelphia City Hall to attend the book signing of On the Line: The Stations, the Heat, the Cooks, the Costs, the Chaos, and the Triumphs (co-authored with Christine Muhlke). Eric Ripert was in the house signing for his fans.
Each of these hor’devours were from the book and passed around to the guests.
Mark & Leigh Baker. They have eaten at 10 Arts several times. They are big fans of the rabbit dish.

Both women are from the Philadelphia area. Who doesn’t have fond memories of a delicious cupcake snack after school? Well the cupcake has grown up and it is now part of a unique happy hour pairing being offered at the Lounge at 10 Arts at the Ritz-Carlton, Philadelphia.
Also happening on this day was a visit from a class from The Restaurant School, posing with Pastry Chef Monica Glass, Chef Eric Ripert and Chef Jennifer Carroll.
Jennifer gives them a behind the scenes tour of the kitchen. I was excited that I could go along to. The kitchen is beautiful, clean and lots of dinners were being prepared that evening. Fun to watch the action.
Later stayed and enjoyed dinner, as I had eaten in the lounge before. The food was so delicious. There were a couple of salads on the menu, I had the house salad at $12 (apps $10 – $14), which was a meal by itself, but forced myself onto the Trout, which I had heard many of my friends rave about. DELICIOUS and reasonable at $26. Most entrees range from $26 – $34. There is also a menu for the lounge and prices range from $8 to $16 with a fish slider at $19. Of course I love the fish sliders. You really have to try them.
