On Thursday, June 15th, the 2nd annual Restaurant Festival returns to the Academy of Natural Science. This festival is a food lover’s dream! We went last year and were absolutely blown away by the ability to meet and sample over 100 restaurants, craft beers, liquors, and wines from across the Philadelphia area.
This year’s event is three hours of non-stop tastings! Guests can enjoy culinary masterpieces from top local chefs, sip a variety of beverages, and enjoy great live entertainment. Wander through the Academy of Natural Sciences’ Dinosaur Hall and butterflies exhibit as you try different foods and drinks. You can explore the fascinating galleries such as North American Hall, African Hall, the Art of Science Gallery. Wine and dine as history surrounds you!
Event Organizer Ray Sheehan says, “After the success of last year’s event, The Philadelphia Restaurant Festival is back and we are adding more food, craft beer and liquor vendors to make the experience even better this year. This event will be a food connoisseur’s dream!”
