USA250 is wheels up as we head to Milan's Expo 2015, this year's world's fair.

Chef Peter Serpico is leading our delegation as Philadelphia's featured chef at the James Beard American Restaurant in downtown Milan for two special dinners on October 20-21. The American-themed restaurant is curated by James Beard Foundation, in connection with the USA Pavilion, and it has featured America’s most celebrated chefs during its 6-month run.

Philadelphia hosted expos for the 1876 Centennial and 1926 Sesquicentennial. Now, USA250 is visiting Milan to see the Expo firsthand and inform our plans for America's 250th anniversary in 2026. Universal expos occur every five years, with Expo 2010 in Shanghai, this year's expo in Milan, and Expo 2020 to be held in Dubai. Expo Milano 2015 expects to receive 20 million visitors over 6 months.

This mission takes place during GlobalPhilly 2015 and Ciao Philadelphia! Italian Cultural Month. Special thanks to Starr Restaurants for sponsoring the delegation.
