Volvér Restaurant Review

: The Philadelphia-based “Iron Chef” Jose Garces (Distrito, El Jefe, Garces Trading Company, etc.) is behind Volvér, a a high-end restaurant located in the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts. Garces aims to appear nightly on the 34-seat restaurant’s “stage” --- an open kitchen, from which he hopes to create elaborate tasting menus that must be purchased in advance with tickets. The pre-theater menu offers eight courses ($75-$120 per person), while the second seating includes a dozen courses ($175-$250 per person). Tables are available for two, four or six guests, with ticket prices covering sparkling or still water, a 20 percent gratuity and tax.
