Drink Philly's First Annual Phestiv-Ale Event

PLUS: St. James Place’s anticipated opening, Main Line Today’s Food & Wine Affair, and more.

Fond Farewell

After 11 successful years in West Chester, Peter Gilmore has decided to close his award-winning French BYO, Gilmore’s. The Culinary Institute of America grad and Le Bec-Fin alum leaves on a high note, given the struggling economy. Perhaps he won’t miss those 16-hour days in the kitchen, but we’ll miss him. 

Worth the Wait

Keep your eye on Suburban Square for the much-anticipated opening of St. James Place, a sophisticated American grill from Philly restaurateurs Michael Schulson and Rob Wasserman. I’ve been told that a fall opening is imminent.

When in Philly

On Sept. 8, join Drink Philly for its first-ever Phestiv-Ale craft-beer event, which is taking over the Sheet Metal Workers Hall on Columbus Boulevard. Proceeds benefit the Delaware Valley chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Visit phestivale.com.
