Urban Farmer, Philadelphia, PA
Summer is officially over, and we’re ready for a busy fall ahead! With the hotel bustling as wedding season approaches, and our dining room fills with business men and women partaking in the various conferences taking place all over the city, it’s only fitting for Urban Farmer to take kick off the busy season participating in Feastival for our third year.
On Thursday, September 27th Urban Farmer will take part in the annual Fringe Festival’s 22nd year, bringing the best contemporary, innovative and ground-breaking art to Philadelphia. Each September for the past nine years, this premier arts festival joined forces with Philadelphia’s world-class restaurants to present Audi FEASTIVAL, a benefit for FringeArts. Described as a “completely delicious and amazing” evening and named “one of the best events in the last decade,” Audi FEASTIVAL celebrates both our artistic and culinary scenes – two great economic engines that push Philadelphia forward. Audi FEASTIVAL has been hailed as “the cultural event of the year,” “best party in Philadelphia,” and “a party from a different world”.
Urban Farmer was invited to represent the South Philadelphia neighborhood at the Media Preview on August 20th, where Chef Seth and Chef Rakesh presented their dish to invited media representatives to promote the event and this year’s new concept. Together, Chef Seth Petitt from Urban Farmer and Chef Rakesh Ramola from Indeblue will be serving lamb barbacoa, lime pickled relish, queso fresco and roti.
Along with all the food, fun and breathtaking art displays that celebrate Philadelphia in its finest form, each co-host of this year’s Feastival whom of which include, Nick Elmi (Laurel, ITV, Royal Boucherie), Michael Solomonov (Zahav, Federal Donuts, Dizengoff, Abe Fisher, Rooster Soup Company), Stephen Starr (Starr Restaurants), and Audrey Claire Taichman (Cook) are all Philadelphia’s own!
Join us on September 27th for a delicious display of both culinary and fine arts at Audi’s Feastival!
