This is an invitation to any of the foodies who are attending ISTE 2011. I am putting together a grand feast at Amada Restaurant with the centerpiece being a whole roast suckling pig. I've attached a menu for those who are curious. The meal I am referring to is the Cochinillo Asado. I currently have room at the table for three to join my party, but if I get more interested I can increase the reservation. However the pig needs to be ordered in advance, so I need to know by Wednesday, June 22.
The reservation is for Tuesday, June 28 at 8:15 pm.
Amada Restaurant is a Spanish-inspired restaurant with a vast selection of tapas and of course a full menu. The suckling pig is an event for any pork lover. Adventurous eaters will appreciate it the most, but there will be plenty of simple cuts of meat. Others at the table will be enjoying snout, ears, cheek, tail, and lots of crispy skin.
This is not budget dining. The meal is $38 per person, but I expect many of us to order a wide selection of small dishes to sample as well. And of course there are drinks, tax, and tip on top of it.
If you would like to attend, please let me know here or by e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org). Please only commit to attending if you are serious about it. If we order a larger pig we'll have to pay for it if people don't show or change their minds about the menu. Of course, anyone is welcome to join even if they are not interested in the pig. Just let me know in your e-mail.
Similarly, I have tables reserved at some of Philadelphia's best restaurants on other days. Any adventurous foodie is welcome to join me at any of the following reservations.
- Zahav 9:30pm on Saturday (If I could get 4 or more there, they do a full lamb shoulder meal that is supposedly awesome, but I doubt if I can so the tasting menu will do nicely)
- Matyson for lunch at 12:30 pm on Wednesday (I'm having the prix fixe tasting menu offered weekdays)
- Marc Vetri's Osteria at 8:00 pm on Wednesday night
