“Wells Fargo Center offers incredible food and beverage options, including many from local chefs, and we’re honored to feature some of Chef Garces’ famous dishes for our fans starting this fall,” said Valerie Camillo, President of Wells Fargo Center. “With his rotating menu, guests will be treated to something new and exciting during each visit, and this is just another way that the new Wells Fargo Center offers the best guest experience in the world with a Philly twist.”

The rotating menu will take diners on a tour of some of Chef Garces’ favorite destinations and keep them coming back for more culinary adventures. Restaurants with featured items will include Village Whiskey, Distrito, and The Olde Bar.
