El Vez Celebrates 20 Years of Mex-Eclectic Magic in Philadelphia

PHILADELPHIA, PA – This November marks the 20th anniversary of El Vez, a cornerstone of Philadelphia’s dining culture and an iconic representation of Mex-Eclectic charm. Founded on November 7, 2003 by Stephen Starr’s STARR Restaurants, El Vez quickly became one of the city’s most beloved dining destinations.

To commemorate this milestone, El Vez will kick-off the celebrations on Tuesday, November 7th with a strolling mariachi band from 5:30 pm to 6:15 pm.
