Flavors of the Avenue Returns with New Additions



This year Flavors of the Avenue returns with the addition of a newly crowned Top Chef, more restaurants, and a slew of VIP perks. The East Passyunk Avenue Business Improvement District (EPABID) welcomes a whopping 27 restaurants to South Philadelphia’s largest outdoor food and drink festival on Saturday, April 26, 2014 from 12 PM to 4 PM.

In 2013, Food & Wine called East Passyunk Avenue one of the 10 best foodie streets in America and deservedly so; the Avenue is teeming with unique shops and boutiques and a host of hot restaurants. Guests will be able to enjoy a true taste of the Avenue as award-winning restaurants and bars offer delicious bites of their signature dishes and drinks under the cover of a big top tent between Morris and Dickinson streets. Exciting debuts this year include Laurel BYOB by Top Chef Nicholas Elmi, plus previews of soon-to-open restaurants Townsend and Brigantessa. Outside the Flavors tent, guests will enjoy a free street festival with vendors and live music. At the Singing Fountain, Crafty Balboa presents the annual April Showers craft market from 12 PM to 5 PM.

VIP tickets are $50 per person and include early access and special perks; please note the event is rain or shine. General admission tickets are $30. Tickets are on sale here or by calling (215) 336-1455. The event sold out last year, so act fast!
