Le Virtu Patio Launch Party on Sunday

Tables and chairs just arrived to fill the new patio
Take a quick trip to Italy this weekend at the launch party for Le Virtu’s impressive new outdoor patio. What used to be an uneven grassy lawn - Il Campo (“the field”) - is now an elegant terrace, paved with ivory stone and surrounded by flowers and herb gardens. Experience the new East Passyunk space with Abruzzese food and drink for an all-inclusive $45 this Sunday.

From 1-3 PM, ticket-holders can take a seat in front of the (soon to be ivy-covered) wooden trellis and dine on food from chef Joe Cicala, along with pours of Italian wine direct from the newly installed tap system. To eat, look for the restaurant’s namesake le virtu soup, which is made with more than 40 ingredients, plus grilled sausage, vegetables and arrosticini (lamb skewers). Call for reservations (215-271-5626).
