Jennifer Carroll and Billy Riddle, chefs and owners of Spice Finch, will cook at the James Beard Foundation’s Taste America pop-up dinner in Philadelphia with James Beard winner Vishwesh Bhatt.

The James Beard Foundation's Taste America culinary tour is coming to Philadelphia for a one-night-only dinner at Jennifer Carroll and Billy Riddle's Rittenhouse restaurant Spice Finch on Tuesday, April 14.

The evening will begin with the host chefs presenting their signature Mediterranean cuisine paired with cocktails by Philly's Aqua Vitae Institute.

Following the cocktail and tasting reception, guests will dine on a four-course dinner prepared by Carroll, Riddle and visiting chef Vishwesh Bhatt of Snackbar in Mississippi. He won the James Beard Foundation Award for Best Chef: South in 2019.

Tickets to attend are $200 per person. The event begins at 6 p.m., with dinner at 7 p.m.

This is the third year in a row that Taste America has visited Philadelphia. However, it's the first year the city will host a pop-up dinner on the tour, which brings New York City's James Beard House experience to multiple cities through intimate, seated dinners.

For 2020, Visit Philadelphia and the James Beard Foundation announced a new partnership that aims to connect tourists to the city's outstanding food scene.
