It’s been a big week for Philadelphia-based chef Jose Garces and other restaurateurs in the city.
Marc Vetri, Peter McAndrews and Garces will formally announce next week their partnership with the Philadelphia Eagles and Lincoln Financial Field to bring some of their dishes to the football stadium.
But in other Garces news, officials with the Pennsylvania Real Estate Investment Trust announced Wednesday the chef will open a fourth Distrito location in Moorestown, N.J., according to Moorestown Patch. Vetri is already slated to open a second Osteria location in the same area.
The area near the Moorestown Mall, located in Burlington County, is undergoing a major facelift. A new movie theater is slated to open as well as Firebirds Wood Fired Grill.
Garces owns and operates five restaurants in the city including Amada. Vetri is the head chef and owner of Amis, Vetri and Osteria.
Peter McAndrews is head chef and owner of Modo Mio, Monsu, Paesano’s and Popolino.
