BEST OF
Drink & Dine for Sandy Relief

Restaurants all over the city are raising funds for the Red Cross and various other Sandy relief efforts. Several are donating a portion of their proceeds while others are acting as hubs for collecting canned goods, cleaning supplies and even clothing. Here are a few spots to grab a bite that will surely do some good for those devastated by last weeks storm:

Tonight, Monday, November 5th, Anejo’s Chef Angelo Sosa alongside Jen Carroll, Kevin Sbraga and Dale Talde will prepare a meal at Anejo Tequileria in Hell’s Kitchen to help raise money for the Red Cross. The dinner will include four-courses (one from each chef) with cocktail pairings by Beverage Director, Joshua Wortman per course.

BEHIND THE PLATE
Sbraga: Another Top Chef Contender Lands in Philly

Top Chef has churned out some impressive culinary heavy hitters since its start in 2005. And Philadelphia was proud to call Jennifer Carroll of Season 6 their own. Well, that is until she stepped down from her position at Eric Ripert’s 10 Arts. But don’t fret, Philly foodies, another Top Chef contender has set up shop just a few blocks south.

Kevin Sbraga’s quiet confidence and incredible culinary talent are what defined his win of Top Chef’s Season 7. But Sbraga is far from a reality show one-hit wonder. Before Top Chef, he held notable positions in impressive kitchens all over the place including the Ritz Carlton in Naples, La Mas Perrier in Wayne, and a bevy of Jose Garces’ eateries dotting center city.
