Four Seasons Hotel Philadelphia and Vernick Fish Head “Down the Shore”

Thursday, June 22, 2023


Vernick Fish, the modern American oyster bar located at Four Seasons Hotel Philadelphia at Comcast Center, is once again bringing the New Jersey shore a taste of the celebrated restaurant this summer. James Beard Award-winning Chef Greg Vernick and team will host an experiential five-day culinary activation and a collaborative benefit dinner in partnership with Cookie Till, owner of Steve & Cookie’s, a beloved bayside restaurant in Margate, New Jersey.

Vernick Fish’s shore-inspired culinary event will take place behind Steve & Cookie’s (700 Amherst Avenue Margate, New Jersey 08402) daily from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm, Monday, August 7 to Friday, August 11, 2023. Guests can anticipate a casual menu of the restaurant’s pristinely prepared ceviche dishes and other seafood-driven bites. Steve & Cookie’s will serve beverages from their outdoor bar, inviting guests to take a break at one of the restaurant’s existing picnic tables and enjoy their bites with refreshing cocktails. The daily events are open to the public and no reservations are necessary for the walk-up service. Vernick Fish commemorative Down the Shore merchandise will be also available for purchase.

Chef Vernick grew up visiting the Jersey shore and got his first kitchen job in Margate, New Jersey. Vernick Fish, Down Shore celebrates the restaurant’s origin story by bringing tastes that have inspired it, back to the place that’s played an important role in Chef Vernick’s life, and many others in the Philadelphia area.

“Cookie is someone that I have long admired as a restaurant owner and pillar of the Jersey shore community,” says Greg Vernick. “Through A Meaningful Purpose, she inspires community members and spreads awareness for regenerative farming practices. Each time we get to support, like we did at last year’s Down the Shore events and then again in March with our Steve & Cookie’s Takeover Dinner at Vernick Fish, we feel even more committed to helping her mission.

Vernick Fish’s week-long presence will conclude with an intimate, 60-seat dinner under the stars on Saturday, August 12, 2023, at Till’s farm, Reed’s Organic Farm in Egg Harbor Township, New Jersey. The dinner will be prepared by Greg and Vernick Fish Chef de Cuisine David Paterniti, utilizing ingredients grown at the farm. Tickets and additional information can be found here, with a portion of the proceeds from both events benefiting A Meaningful Purpose at Reed’s Farm.
