A steady stream of contemporary Asian cuisine concocted by executive chef Michael Schulson was served at the Feastival preview party at Sampan in Midtown Village. Never haven’t eaten there before I left very impressed with the excellent food the cooks were dishing out to party-goers. We got to try a lot of items that are available (at really reasonable prices) on their Happy Hour menu; Edamame Dumplings, Korean BBQ Beef Satay, Kim Chee Fried Rice, Crispy Brussel Sprouts, among others. I definitely recommend checking it out.
Feastival is a benefit party for the Philadelphia Live Arts Festival and Philly Fringe, it will take place on September 12th. Last year’s event was absolutely incredible (see my photos: Feastival: A Feast For The Senses). You can purchase tickets here.
I really recommend this event because you get to eat and drink from some of the best, and most lauded restaurants and bars in Philadelphia, all the while supporting a great cause; the arts in Philly. If you splurge on one dining out experience, this would be a good one to pick. Frankly I’ve been looking forward to this event since last year’s ended!
