A Philly native with familial roots in Greece, Chef Saritsoglou learned to cook beside his relatives at a very young age. His passion and curiosity led him to travel throughout Europe learning the flavors and techniques of German, Italian and French cuisine and finally back to Greece where he worked at Michelin-starred Varoulko in Athens. Chef Saritsoglou returned stateside in 2001, cooking in well-regarded kitchens in East Hampton, eventually making his way back to Philadelphia, cooking at Santucci’s, Opa, and most recently Will BYOB. Bobby is in the final stages of opening Stina, named after his wife Christina, co-founder of Philly AIDS Thrift.  Located just a block off West Passyunk Avenue in Philadelphia’s Newbold neighborhood, Stina will feature an imported Italian wood fire oven and an approachable Mediterranean menu of pizzas, pastas, seasonal produce and more. Bobby is no stranger to COOK, but we’re particularly delighted to welcome him back for his premiere appearance as a chef-OWNER. Join Bobby as he prepares a Mediterranean menu of lentil soup with lamb meatballs, Swiss chard and chickpeas; charred octopus with blood orange, preserved lemon, olive crumble and fennel; pistachio and beef kefta with sumac onion, tabouleh and yogurt; and brik pastry with mascarpone, cardamom, honey.
