Style: Marc Vetri’s bold move to all-tasting menus has upped the cost of dining at his intimate Northern Italian townhouse jewel. But it has also unchained his kitchen to reach new heights with flowing and personalized free-form feasts that meld Vetri classics (spinach gnocchi; onion crepe) with creative flights of ethereal pastas, seafood and exotic meats (antelope alla Fiorentina in amarone sauce? Si!) Together with extraordinary wine pairings from the finely-tuned service staff, Philadelphia’s most complete fine-dining adventure just got better.
