AL FRESCO DINING COMES TO THE 700 BLOCK OF CHESTNUT STREET
It’s summer, I love to eat al fresco, so I am a little obssessed with the notion especially since I read about it a few weeks back on the FooBooz site here http://foobooz.com/2009/04/al_fresco_dining_hold_exhaust/ So here are a two more to add to the list:
UNION TRUST recently started serving lunch and a lite bar menu in the evening al fresco. Customers are allowed to order off the regular menu, but when you are seated you will be provided with the bar menu which features lite meals and spirits. A little birdie tells me that Union Trust is creating a special slurpee/slushi drink to serve to their outside patrons.
Next door Chifa, the Jose Garces Peruvian-Cantonese restaurant, has also gotten into the spirit with al fresco dining. 10 seats outside – open for lunch and dinner (weather permitting) – and lunch and dinner menus both served outside.
