As the Latham Hotel reopens at 17th and Walnut Streets, it was the setting for the Colin Farrell-Terrence Howard mob thriller Dead Man Down.
The hotel’s restaurant, an Italian wine bar Urban Enoteca, just opened.
Chef Dan Orvis’ dinner menu is mainly small plates (top-priced entrée is a pappardelle with braised short rib ragu for $25).
Orvis started with Latham parent company Ocean Properties in Key West at the Westin Key West as a lead line cook, and worked his way up into sous chef position in Bar Harbor, Maine, at the Harborside Hotel & Marina. Most recently, he was a "task force" culinary team member, assisting with the opening of the Delray Beach restaurant 50 Ocean.
