Brûlée Wedding Featured in Martha Stewart Weddings

It’s not every day we get to see one familiar faces on the COVER of a national publication. We were so thrilled when we got word that a Brûlée wedding was featured in Martha Stewart Weddings!

Carrie, editor of Philadelphia Wedding Magazine, and her husband Micheal, celebrated her wedding December, 31, 2015 at Please Touch Museum and we played a big role in it. Our one-of-a-kind venue, Please Touch Museum, and creative menu helped bring her New Year’s Eve bash to life to kick-off 2016 and their marriage off in style.

“I knew who I wanted,” she says, “and I knew they were fantastic.” For Michael’s part, “music and food are major things in my life, so I focused on those.” Read the whole story here.

octoberfest-960x400

Autumn means a chance of the weather and for us it also means a five-day fall party at Dilworth Park. We are excited to partner up with Center City District for their event presented by Saul Ewing. Kick-off the five day festival on Wednesday, October 12, 5 – 9 p.m. and it will continue through Sunday, October 16.  No tickets needed to enjoy fun and games like a hold-a-stein contest and selfie stations with the Jim Beam Bear and City Hall in the backdrop. Plus, catch your favorite football teams on Saturday and Sunday on large flatscreens while you sip on beer, cocktails and specialty cocktails.

Our culinary director Chazz Alberti along with our executive chefs crafted a whimsical take on traditional German menu items with a Philly twist. For example, Germantown Potato dumplings and South Philly Scnitzel are among the items offered at this pay-as-you-go party. Our special menu below will be available at the Air Grille and Dilworth Park Café during the special event.
