Jose Garces Beats Stephen Starr To Rittenhouse Gastropub; Will Only Serve Craft Beer, Figuratively Decimating Every Other Bar In Rittenhouse

village whiskey in philadelphia by jose garcesExcept maybe Barclay Prime.

And, for the record, it's more of a Whiskey bar technically than a gastropub, but whatever.

Village Whiskey by Jose Garces will open in June on 20th Street.

This blurb is from the press release:
As one of the most comprehensive collections of its namesake spirit available in Philadelphia, Village Whiskey will feature a veritable library of 80 to 100 varieties of whiskey, bourbon, rye and scotch from Scotland, Canada, Ireland, United States and even a few Japanese options.

For those who desire something other than whiskey, a carefully chosen list of wines with a focus on sparkling wines; and a beer list comprised exclusively of American craft beers will be available.
Oh. Snap.

God bless you, Jose Garces. You are clearly a gentleman and scholar.

And, in our minds, you just earned that "superstar" moniker. Well done.
