Tommorrow get 5 AITA hooch'd cocktails & dishes like pulled beef shank and foie gras carpaccio. Seats are sparse, so call.
Philadelphia Dining Deals and Events March 12-18
Until recently, Jason Cichonski was a teetotaler who touched nary a drink, but you would never know it from the creative cocktail list the chef put together for his Queen Village bistro Ela. That prowess will be on display at a five-course dinner complete with drink pairings using locally-run Art in the Age Root, Snap and Rhuby liquors. What sips well next to a foie gras carpaccio with baby octopus? We’re not sure, but we’re certain Cichonski has figured it out! Seats are $65 per person and reservations are required (627 S. Third St.; 267-687-8512).

Tomorrow night, chef Jason Cichonski and Art in the Age will be hosting a "spirited dinner" at Ela (637 S. Third St.). The menu comprises five courses, each matched with a cocktail featuring one of three AITA liquors, ROOT, SNAP and RHUBY.
