La Fia, Bryan Sikora - and the final CSA Dinner of the Summer!

First, to thank all of the chefs, CSA members, dinner attendees, and employees who helped make our CSA dinners this summer a possiblity. 

We are so thrilled to host our FINAL CSA Dinner, on September 12th, with guest chef Brian Sikora of downtown Wilmington's La Fia Bistro. A successful, chic bistro, run by husband and wife - with use of a cooking style that has rung throughout the nation, but also with use of our SIW Vegetables!

"Sikora’s approach to modern cuisine—rustic, soulful, but imminently approachable—earned rave reviews as he led Philly restaurants like Django and, and Talula’s Table in Kennett Square. His graceful, laid-back cooking style is a perfect match for his new digs. In a storefront leased from the Buccini/Pollin Group, natural light beams onto distressed tin ceilings and reclaimed wooden tables. "

"When Bryan Sikora planted his flag on the corner of Fifth and Market in downtown Wilmington—and not on Rittenhouse Square or Fishtown or West Village or Chelsea—it felt like a major upset victory for little ol’ Delaware.

Sikora, one of the Philly region’s top chefs, helped define upscale casual dining in the area for more than a decade. His talent and pedigree could’ve taken him anywhere he wanted. And he picked us. It was the culinary equivalent of Elena Delle Donne spurning UConn to join UD. The small-market franchise landing the blue-chip free agent."

We can't wait for this dinner! Arrival, as per usual, is at 7pm, and guests can expect to eat at about 7:30. These dinners are BYOB, but we do provide water, iced tea, and lemonade.

Join us in closing out the summer with a bang!

See you Friday~!
