The Loews Hotel hosted the 8th Annual Flavors of Philadelphia fund-raiser for the American Liver Foundation, Mid-Atlantic Division on Tuesday, April 3, 2012. Guests enjoyed a first class dining experience. The night began with a cocktail reception with exquisite hors d’oeuvres prepared by Sole Food restaurant. A sit down three course dinner prepared table side for twelve will follow with paired wine uniquely designed by each chef to dazzle the palate of the attendees.

Executive Sous Che. The restaurant is going through another growth and metamorphosis and I think you're going to like it. Coming up in a few weeks is their Buck A Shuck special, plus the bar menu will be half price during happy hour, and soon they'll have an Oyster Dinner Pairing.CHARITY EVENT FOR KEVIN NEARY.
