Jose Garces closed Amada all day Sunday for a staff party at his newly purchased farm in Ottsville, Bucks County, to commemorate his first restaurant's fifth anniversary. Garces hired buses to transport the Philadelphians and got a cake made by Duff "Ace of Cakes" Goldman, which was in the shape of the meat slicer at Amada.
