CHEF/CHAIR­MAN OF GARCES

Philadelphia Style - - Atlantic City -

Q: Why did you pick Philadel­phia to house all of your won­der­ful eater­ies?

JOSE GARCES: “Philadel­phia picked me — it was love at first sight! After liv­ing in NYC from 1996 un­til 2000, I had an op­por­tu­nity to come work in Philadel­phia with my chef men­tor, Dou­glas Ro­driguez, and Stephen Starr. After open­ing two res­tau­rants with Starr, I quickly gained a fol­low­ing and loyal guests. Over the years, it’s been great to see the city of Philadel­phia and its food scene evolve. I’m proud to have been able to con­trib­ute to what has be­come a true culi­nary des­ti­na­tion.”
