Pasta Flyer Lands in Philly

Mark Ladner, the executive chef at Manhattan's Del Posto, will be bringing his Kickstarter-funded Pasta Flyer concept (see my June 2014 post) to town on October 2 and 3.

On Thursday, Oct. 2, Chef Ladner will serve his quick-serve gluten-free pasta bowls from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Old City's High Street on Market (308 Market St., 215-625-0988), recently named by Bon Appetit magazine as one of 2014's 10 best new U.S. restaurants. The next day, Pasta Flyer will be on Drexel University's campus for an all-day pop-up. At both locations, Pasta Flyer will serve Bene Boxes, or "good” boxes - like a Japanese bento box but for Italian food. Inside these convenient, compact and compostable boxes, guests will get a portion of gluten-free pasta, salad, protein and a snack of the day for under $10, delivered in less than three minutes.

Chef Ladner and Chef Eli Kulp will collaborate on an entirely gluten-free dinner at High Street's neighbor, the New American restaurant Fork (306 Market St., 215-625-9425), on October 2. Chef Kulp of Fork was selected one of Food & Wine magazine's 2014 Best New Chefs and named the Philadelphia Inquirer's 2013 Chef of the Year, while Philadelphia magazine named Fork "Best Restaurant" in its recent Best of Philly issue. The dinner cost is $150 per person exclusive of tax and gratuity; call the restaurant for seating times and reservations
