“Tequila blanco is mixed with creme de cacao, amaretto, 

coconut milk and chocolate for a rich but not-too-creamy drink we’ll take over a milk-shake any day. So good, you’ll want one before and after dinner.”


Serving James Beard Preview Dinner Throughout July


On August 8th, Verdad Restaurant & Tequila Bar‘s Executive Chef Nicholas Farina will cook a Latin feast at the prestigious James Beard House in New York City. 

But, for those who can’t get to New York, Chef Farina will preview his innovative menu, “A Salute to the Chili Pepper” beginning Friday, July 8th and throughout July, right here at Verdad in Bryn Mawr. 

Farina will explore all the nuances of the mighty chili pepper by incorporating different varieties into each course of his flavor-packed menu. This five-course preview dinner is $55 per person, plus tax and gratuity. Reservations are required. Call 610-520-9100 at least 24 hours in advance.
