Will BYOB is my new favorite foodie restaurant in Philly. The venue is a small, intimate setting. The service is congenial and impeccable. However, it's the surprising, delectable flavors and beautiful presentation of the cuisine that has Philadelphia Magazine and many other media outlets raving about WILL BYOB and proclaiming that Chris Kearse is the top new chef in Philly. All I know is that when I taste each eagerly anticipated course there, I close my eyes and emit a delightedly astonished sigh.
From Will's website: "Will is a modern French inspired BYOB, located on East Passyunk Avenue in the heart of South Philadelphia. Chef and Owner Christopher Kearse and his team prepare a menu focused on its season, respecting French traditions along with classic and modern techniques to build a dining experience that evokes excitement and emotion.
Our four- course Sunday menu is a great way to sample items you otherwise would not see on our a la carte menu. Ingredients found at surrounding farmer's markets give inspiration for this weekly featured menu."
Read Philly Magazine's restaurant review including the story of Chef Kearse's overcoming personal tragedy on the road to culinary professional success:
The cost of the prix fixe dinner is $45. Hopefully you are game for a culinary adventure, since the specific menu items for this date will not be available until a few days ahead - the Chef likes to keep things fresh and surprising. Separate checks will be given, and both cash and credit cards are accepted. Feel free to bring your favorite wine or other alcoholic beverages.
** Note: No-shows for this event are not an option. First, the restaurant is tiny and we will account for a significant portion of seating. Second, I personally will be accountable to pay a certain amount for each guest who fails to come without a 24-hour prior cancellation, which I trust will not be necessary.
All those who RSVP affirmatively will be receive an emailed request a week beforehand to confirm their attendance, so your kind cooperation and commitment will be appreciated.
Metered street parking may be found near the restaurant on E. Passyunk, but to my knowledge, parking there is free on Sundays, so no need to load up on quarters for the old-fashioned meters. Two-hour timed parking may also be found on side streets.
So come and experience this outstanding restaurant located in the hub of Philly's newest hot spot. Looking forward to a memorable evening with new friends.
