Balboa is the place if you want to show off your cooking chops

Restaurateur for a Night

by Alex Jones

Itching to try your hand at a big dinner, but don’t have the kitchen facilities or seating you need to host a big night? Balboa is a contemporary, refined space that hides on a residential block in Fishtown—but it hosts some of the city’s most innovative chefs for special dinners, as well as events highlighting Chef Alex Garfinkel’s meticulously crafted farm-to-table menus. Buy a ticket to one of their chef appearances, or rent the space for an intimate private party or dinner.
