Philadelphia, PA - Restaurant veterans Alex and Stavros Vasiliadis, along with George Karagiannis, announced their latest project The Bodega Bar and Kitchen at 1223 Walnut St in Midtown Village, a Latin-influenced restaurant offering up unique Latin-fair and hand-crafted cocktails.
Bodega Philadelphia in Midtown Village
Bodega Bar is a neighborhood cantina, for those looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of center city life, and meant to bring people together in a relaxed atmosphere.
General Manager Patrice Caron said, "Bodega is a truly well-rounded experience. From the initial greeting to the final goodbye, ALL of the details matter in between. People come here to disengage from the normalcies of society and truly be themselves. It is my job to make them feel at home."
Bodega Bar and Kitchen will be headed up in the kitchen by Executive Chef Shain Wancio. A Bucks County native with deep ties to the Philly food scene.
The chef's all-scratch fare is going to feature a contemporary Latin inspired menu, drawing from both Middle Eastern and Asian influences. The menu will include salads, tapas, entrees, specialty sandwiches, and deserts along with daily and weekly specials.
The bar will offer guest beer, spirits, and cocktails, along with a robust wine program to complement the food program. The Bodega intends to promote a variety of wines from around the world and the beer program is going to include Southern-inspired lagers & ales. Happy hour will also offer food and drink deals as well as special happy hour menu items.
The interior vibe and decor are dedicated to Cuba's Post-revolutionary Era. After stepping into Bodega, guests can sit down at the 19-foot bar crafted out of a reclaimed Pennsylvania Sycamore tree. Outside, guests can enjoy ten seats and five tables located along Walnut Street.
Opening Hours: Monday through Friday, from 11:00, am to 2:00 am, and Saturday and Sunday, 9:00 am to 2:00 am.
Address: 1223 Walnut St, Philadelphia, PA 19107
