"A Letter to our Community" - City Tavern Chef Walter Staib

Wanted to share the following community email I received this AM from Walter Staib, Chef at City Tavern in Philadelphia...and star of A Taste of History on PBS. 

My Outlander Purgatory is not affiliated with City Tavern in any way. I just love them and have a ton of respect for what they do. I had a phenomenal experience there with Tom and the kids on Mother's Day weekend in 2017, and I will cherish it forever. I can't wait to go back and I hope you all get to experience it sometime in the near future, too. ❤️ 

A Letter to our Community:

I wanted to take a moment and extend my heartfelt best wishes for health to our community in these unsettling times and recognize the brave men and women on the front lines of the medical field. While these times are challenging for any business, it is important that we all follow the guidelines of our Government leaders and “Stay-at-Home”.

I have worked tirelessly over my lifetime in recreating an atmosphere at City Tavern that brings the world a unique view of the cuisine of 18th century life. It is so easy to think of our Founding Fathers as abstract concepts of Liberty and Freedom and to forget that they were walking and breathing human beings that existed, in many ways, as we do now. Needless to say, the founders faced many challenges in their own lives, but they persisted, and we became a better nation through it. I have no doubt, that we will come together and defeat this horrible virus.

When that day comes, City Tavern will be here for you, as it was for our Forefathers when they needed a hot meal or cold brew after deliberating the Declaration of Independence. Food is often our great comforter.

With an understanding of the difficult times we are all in, I ask only if you are able, to “Buy it Forward” and purchase a gift card for later use, to show your support and help our business during these turbulent times.

Gift Cards may be purchased online or using the button below. 

I thank you in advance.
Chef Walter Staib
Proprietor; City Tavern Restaurant
