Philadelphia, PA - Located in the modern-industrial FringeArts building across from the Race Street Pier, La Peg at FringeArts is a contemporary American bar and restaurant serving refined versions of comfort food classics in a dazzling setting that expands the city’s historic Old City district to include the banks of the Delaware River.
The dynamic space is a fitting backdrop for Chef Woolsey’s familiar-yet-elevated fare, marrying classic dishes with his mastery of French technique. The restaurant frequently hosts live performances in cooperation with FringeArts, working closely with President Nick Stuccio, ranging from bands to pop-up performances to cabarets; brunch is available on weekends, and a bar and late-night menu offers a wealth of dining options to suit everything from a casual visit to a full, multi-course meal. They are also proud to host private parties of all sizes.
