Join us for a special evening in the private dining room as we host South Philly's own, and former Vetri Cucina chef, Joey Baldino! Baldino will prepare a multi-course meal of traditional favorites from his new cookbook, Dinner at the Club: 100 Years of Stories and Recipes from South Philly's Palizzi Social Club!

Chef and restaurateur Joey Baldino, known for his deeply traditional Italian cooking, owns Sicilian BYOB Zeppoli in Collingswood, New Jersey and Palizzi Social Club in South Philadelphia. He is an eight-time James Beard Award semifinalist, and, in 2017, Bon Appetit ranked Palizzi Social Club the #4 restaurant in the United States. Prior to opening Zeppoli, he honed his culinary skills at Vetri Cucina, Osteria, and in the kitchens of other top Philadelphia chefs including Georges Perrier, Michael Solomonov, and Jose Garces. As a young cook, he apprenticed with Alice Waters at her legendary California restaurant Chez Panisse, worked at Ana Tasca Lanza’s farm in Sicily and cooked at Daniel Boulud's New York City flagship Daniel. He is a graduate of Temple University’s Fox School of Business and the French Culinary Institute in Manhattan. Today, he proudly resides just blocks from Palizzi Social Club, near Mr. Martino’s Trattoria, where he had his first restaurant job bussing tables, and proudly carries on his family's third-generation South Philly legacy of good food and authentic hospitality.
