Marc Vetri

Where Philadelphia - - Where Now -

When Mario Batali says your restau­rant is the best Ital­ian spot on the East Coast, peo­ple no­tice. That’s what hap­pened to Marc Vetri, one of Philly’s best known and most ac­claimed chefs. Since open­ing his epony­mous trat­to­ria in 1998, Vetri and his long­time busi­ness part­ner Jeff Ben­jamin ex­panded their com­pany to in­clude Os­te­ria, Amis, Alla Spina, Lo Spiedo and Pizze­ria Vetri, which is on a fast ex­pan­sion track thanks to last year’s buy-out of the em­pire by Ur­ban Out­fit­ters. Vetri (the restau­rant) re­mains the ex­empt, and it’s where you can still find Vetri (the chef) cook­ing dishes like Swiss chard gnoc­chi, porchetta with stone fruit and seared scal­lops with truf­fled corn crema.
