Back for its second year, the High Steaks Cheesesteak Challenge will be going down, this Sunday, October 16, from 3pm – 5pm. Hosting the event again will be Square 1682 in the Hotel Palomar and its resident Chef, Guillermo Tallez.
Last year’s outdoor-event was a complete success, and this year’s block party is sure to be just as tasty. Ten of the city’s most popular chefs will compete with their own rendition of a Philly Cheesesteak.
Participating chefs include Chef Guillermo Tellez of Square 1682, Chef Peter Woolsey of BistroLa Minette, Chef Mike Stollenwerk of Fish, Chef Daniel Stern of R2L, Chef Marcie Turney of Barbuzzo, Chef Townsend Wentz of McCrossen’s Tavern, Chef Nick Farina of Verdad Restaurant & Tequila Bar, Chef David Boyle of Davio’s, Brian Turowski, Jackson 20 (Alexandria Va.) and Lynn Rinaldi from Paradiso.
Tickets to the event are $20 per person, and proceeds will go to benefit The Philadelphia Academies, a charity providing career-focused programming to Philadelphia’s public school students.
