The upscale Serpico on South Street has become Pete's Place. And the menu pays homage to the chef's South Korean roots with noodles, BBQ and Kimchi.

SOUTH PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- James Beard award-winning Chef Peter Serpico has shuttered his namesake restaurant Serpico and pivoted to what he calls a virtual kitchen with Pete's Place, a kind-of Korean-food that is 100% takeout and delivery, paying homage to his South Korean roots.

Think noodles, bibimbap, Korean barbecue and Kimchi.

The most popular dish being the Korean fried chicken wings, a recipe the fine-dining chef has become known for.

Serpico says he likes to get creative in the kitchen and have fun. With schools gone virtual too, Peter's young daughter has become a frequent companion in the kitchen, putting a personal touch on his pandemic pivot.

You can also find Pete's Place in Washington D.C., where they are running out of their sister restaurant, St. Anslem.
