Dinner

Summer in Provence

Peter Woolsey

Bistrot La Minette, Philadelphia

The son of two accomplished painters, Peter Woolsey applies his creative finesse to the skillful French bistro cooking at Philadelphia’s Bistrot La Minette. The Cordon Bleu–educated chef, who worked closely with Christopher Lee at Striped Bass before setting out on his own, will debut his summer-inspired, Provençal-themed menu to the Beard House.
