   chef de cuisine Nathan Volz and assistant director of food & beverage Miguel Hernandez. Since the departure of Eric Ripert, Eric Ripert’s 10 Arts has been re-branded as just 10 Arts. Check it out it’s a whole new menu, and a whole new relaxed atmosphere. The Ritz Hotel is ranked #4 in Philadelphia, #6 in Pennsylvania. Not too shabby.

If you’ve been reading PhillYChitChat for awhile now, then you’re familiar with my friend, artist Denise Fike,
who has a very distinct style. When she’s not working in her studio, she’s doing “On the Spot Fashion Skitches” at parties, wedding showers or events. ian michael crumm above
