Dining at the Kimmel Center

Volver by Chef Jose Garces
Culinary art takes the stage at Volver by Iron Chef & Food Network Star Jose Garces. Volver offers two distinct experiences:
  • Bar Volver is a comfortable setting for artful cocktails, wines and beers, complemented by Chef Garces’ exciting menu of globally influenced small plates including tartares, tartines, cheeses and charcuterie. All dishes are available a la carte. Reservations are not required.

  • The Dining Room at Volver features decadent multi-course chef’s tasting with beverage pairings in an intimate dining room and open studio kitchen. The ever-evolving menu highlights seasonal ingredients prepared with modern techniques that capture and amplify their inherent flavors, all inspired by Chef Garces’s travels around the world
