PHILADELPHIA, Pa. (CBS) — Chef José Garces’ highly anticipated restaurant, Volvér, is getting ready to open at the Kimmel Center. Patrons will need to go online to buy an advance ticket to get in — requesting not only a date and time for a dinner seating but also paying for the meal ahead of time.
The restaurant doesn’t open until April 16th, but Garces (top photo) says the bar will be open on Wednesday, April 9th.
“We have 50 varieties of champagne and sparkling wines,” he tells What’s Cooking, “along with a pretty tremendous wine list and the bites that we’re gonna be serving there. There are small bites: we’re doing caviar, tartars, great hams and charcuterie, and some delicious cheese.”
