Last night, Philly chef Jose Garces survived a Japanese challenge on The Next Iron Chef, which puts him and NY's Jehangir Mehta into a one-on-one battle at Kitchen Stadium that will be shown Sunday (11/22) at 9 p.m. on Food Network.

The prize: The exposure of being an Iron Chef.

Hmm. New York vs. Philly.

Garces will host a viewing party at his West Philly Mexican restaurant, Distrito.

Starts at 8:30 p.m. It's $50 a head (plus tax and tip). Bill of fare includes Distrito food, including ceviche and guacamole and salsa Mexicana stations, and passed hot dishes such as lamb chops, adobo chicken and shrimp skewers, hongos huarache and a variety of tacos, beer, red and white wine, red and white sangria, and margaritas. (Reservations: 215-222-1657.)

Unlike the kickoff party on the first floor that Garces threw when the show premiered, this fiesta will encompass the entire restaurant and will involve extra TVs.

So...?
