Philadelphia, PA - Chef Nicholas Elmi and his all-star team at Royal Boucherie are gearing up for Dogs on the Deck II. The second-annual chef-driven patio hot dog competition, held Wednesday, August 14, from 6-8 pm on the Old City restaurant’s second-floor patio, benefits the Pennsylvania Animal Welfare Society (PAWS).
Guests will enjoy four expertly crafted and creative dogs from top chefs and craft beer from James Beard Award-winning Allagash Brewing Company. $40 gets four gourmet dogs, four beers and unlimited fun.
Additionally, Elmi and team will kick off the event with a “welcome dog” for all to enjoy while guests sip on Allagash beers on Royal Boucherie’s second-floor garden-deck oasis. The party will spill over into the adjacent Parlor — the second-floor bar, lounge and dining area.
Participating chefs are Michael Ferrari of Res Ipsa; Andrew DiTomo of Vetri Family; Matt Harper of Kensington Quarters; and returning champion Damon Menapace of Le Virtù.
“We’re super excited to bring back Dogs on the Deck for its second year,” said Chef / Owner Nicholas Elmi. “This year guests can expect even more creative takes on one of the summer’s favorite foods crafted by some serious culinary talent — and all for a great cause.”
