Lo Spiedo - Philadelphia

Philadelphia’s nickname may conjure the civic aspirations that founder William Penn envisioned for his colony’s capital, but to us it represents a flourishing culinary scene, including the chefs and beverage professionals who will be on hand for this fabulous walk-around party.

Tickets to events held at the James Beard House cover the cost of food and a unique dining experience. Dinners are prepared by culinary masters from all regions of the United States and around the world. All alcoholic beverages are provided on a complimentary basis and are not included in the ticket price.​
