|David Katz will join Michael Solomonov and other chefs at the party|
Disco attire is strongly recommended for the all-you-can-eat-and-drink fest, which will feature live music from the West Philadelphia Orchestra. The toques donning glitter, tube tops and crazy wigs as they cook are Erin O’Shea (Percy Street Barbecue), Nick Macri (Southwark), Jennifer Carroll, Lucio Palazzo (La Calaca Feliz), David Katz, John Taus (The Corner), Peter Woolsey (Bistrot La Minette) and Terence Feury (Tavro 13).
Klezmer tunes may not feature riffs as catchy as “Burn, baby, burn,” but the traditional Eastern European Jewish music did incorporate a jazzy edge when immigrants brought it to the United States, so the theme isn’t as much of a stretch as you might first think. Plus, we know from video and first-hand experience that chef Solomonov has as many smooth moves on the dance floor as he does in the kitchen. This event sells out every year, so pick up your $85 ticket here ASAP.
