Volver by Chef Jose Garces
Open now! Culinary art takes the stage with opening of Volver by Iron Chef Food Network Star Jose Garces. Volver offers two distinct experiences:
  • Bar Volver features the largest selection of sparkling wine in Philadelphia with thoughtfully selected wines, hand-crafted cocktails, and a selection of caviar, cured meat, tartares, and skewered small bites.

  • Volver features decadent multi-course chef’s tasting with beverage pairings in an intimate dining room with open studio kitchen. The ever-evolving menu highlights seasonal ingredients prepared with modern techniques that capture and amplify their inherent flavors, all inspired by Chef Garces’s travels around the world.

"Volver is about an all-encompassing experience: the food and drink, the service, the hospitality, and the ambiance are all of paramount importance," says Jose Garces. "Taking a cue from our surroundings in a performing arts center and some of the country’s most exciting dining destinations, a ticketing system will allow us to focus on ensuring that every aspect of the dining experience is thoughtfully orchestrated, flawlessly executed, and truly unique."
