Philabundance tasting menu at 10 Arts

By Drew Lazor

10 Arts (Ritz-Carlton, 10 S. Broad St.) has teamed up with Philabundance to introduce new permanent-fixture lunch and dinner tasting menus that benefit hungry people in the Delaware Valley. The three-course lunch tasting runs $22 a head and includes a Victory beer; the five-course dinner tasting, meanwhile, is $59, with a wine pairing option that bumps it up to $95. (Both tastings feature local meat, fish and produce, in keeping with Eric Ripert and Jennifer Carroll’s cooking philosophies.) One dollar from each tasting ordered goes directly to Philabundance. If this doesn’t sound like a lot to you, remember that the non-profit’s access to wholesale food distribution, in addition to its cache of donated foodstuffs, means that they can provide an individual with a full, healthy meal for as little as 50 cents.

The Philabundance fundraiser officially launches this evening, and Ripert is in town to see it off. (He’s also cooking a super-classy Perrier-Jouët dinner with Carroll tonight.) Check out the current lunch and dinner tasting menus after the jump; courses will switch up in accordance with availability and seasonality.
