A lot can happen at a restaurant in 25 years. Servers and bartenders come and go, deals have been made, anniversaries and birthdays celebrated…and mob bosses not-so-secretly get together. Such is the case of La Veranda‘s 25 years. And, with it’s pristine location on the Delaware River water front, we’re guessing a lot of other memorable events have gone down.
The historic Northern Italian restaurant located on Pier 3 Penn’s Landing, is celebrating it’s 25th anniversary and all those past (and future) memories that have been made on their dockside patio.
Northern Italy is where the famous Po Valley meets the Alps and nurtured a hard-working and life-affirming population of Italians for whom food served not only as the way to their hearts, but as one of the joys of life itself. The verdant vineyard and ancient orchard estates of Northern Italy embrace that romantic locales of Tuscany, Venice, Lombardy, where Italian meets French to produce a cuisine both simple in ingredients, but exotic in its many varied and unique presentations.
Just imagine, dining under the stars and then boom…kabaam, pop. No, not those reported mob boss meetings, but rather the fireworks show on the Delaware River. Ahh, the romance. Very Bachelorette-esque, no?
La Veranda just happens to provide a stellar vantage point for the colorfully lit up skies during the spring and summer months. What better way to celebrate being a quarter of a century old?
