RITTENHOUSE — Next Wednesday, October 28, Aldine will host their own one year anniversary party, but they'll be doing things a little differently. From 6:00-10:00 p.m., chef George Sabatino will offer items from their new fall menu, at your leisure (buffet style). On the menu: potato and leek croquettes, chicken liver mousse, squash tartine, and whole suckling pig carved by Sabatino through the night. The best part? It's also a Halloween party, with Halloween-themed cocktails and costumes galore. So dress as you would, and be sure to bring your kids; seats cost $35 ($15 for kids), and after 10:00 p.m., a late-night happy hour for all.
