Market Tour: Di Bruno Bros., Philadelphia

Market Scene Drew Lazor 1 comment

Di Bruno Brothers, a Philly fixture since FDR was in office, celebrated the grand opening of its newest location late last week by showing off what they did best—hawking rare Euro cheeses, stretching and braiding mozzarella by hand and, in a fit of D.O.P.-approved pyromania, filling wheels of Parmigiano-Reggiano with flaming brandy for on-the-spot cheese sauce. Such showmanship is of a piece with the brand's dedication to customer service, which its owners will tell you is the key to it all. Click through the slideshow to take a tour of the market! More

For me, Jake's is as much a standout as any of the newer "better burger" joints. Think of it as a less greasy Five Guys with fresher toppings. More

First Look: Pizzeria Vetri Opens Doors in Philadelphia, PA

Slice Drew Lazor 10 comments

Chefs enjoy when their food's the primary topic of discussion, but at Pizzeria Vetri, it's the oven that captures the conversation. Six feet across and four-plus tons on the scale, the Renato Riccio-made beast is definitely a looker, but it's the peculiar schematics—dual facing mouths, with counter on one end and kitchen on the other—that allows peel wielders to shout orders into the oven and have them float out the other side. Calling up a Caesar or checking in on a calzone? For best results, yell directly into the fire. More

First Look: Simple Pies at Kermit's Bake Shoppe, Philadelphia

Slice Drew Lazor 3 comments

New to a largely industrial strip of Washington Avenue jammed with warehouses and construction wholesalers, Kermit's was opened by Adam Ritter, a Philly publican who runs the craft beer bars Sidecar and Kraftwork. Named after New Orleans jazz fixture Kermit Ruffins, the beautifully muraled space has an edgy-but-accessible commissary feel, with its buzzing-about-in-aprons staff, high-output equipment, and towering ceilings. We paid a visit to pizza chef Brian Lofink to chat about his pies. More

Snapshots from My Cross-Country Road Trip

J. Kenji López-Alt 27 comments

Hi-ho, Kenji here, reporting from my temporary digs in the West Coast where, thanks to my wife and her penchant for getting offered internships in exotic seaside locations, I'll be reporting from until October. With a large country to traverse and two dogs to do it with, it only made sense to give my best friend a call, rent a car, and do things the old fashioned American way with a road trip. Take a look at everything we ate along the way. More

The 5th Annual Pizza Olympics in Philadelphia, PA

Slice Kate Axelrod 1 comment

The 5th annual Pizza Olympics in Philly was an amazing, overwhelming, gut-busting time. With strong showings by J&J Pizza, Cacia's Pizza Pizzaz, Chickie's and Pete's plain slice, and Paulie's sloppy joe pie, over 10 pizzerias offered up slices to satiate a wide variety of palates. More

Philadelphia, PA's 13th Street Gourmet Pizza: Not Just for Late Night

First Look: Pizzeria Beddia, Philadelphia

A one-man pizza station is one thing; a pizzeria run by a solitary man is another. And ever since Joe Beddia opened the latter, he's had to address the unforeseen on his own. We take an early look at his eponymous pizzeria in Philadelphia's Fishtown. More

The other weekend I made it to Hobbs, a coffee shop right outside of Philadelphia, for their one-night only Hot Dog Jamboree. Chef William Randall puts out some really impressive food from a tiny coffeehouse kitchen and recently became hot dog obsessed, whipping up eight different hot dog specials for the event, and even road-tripped into Jersey to source some of the country's best frankfurters.

College Tours: Where to Eat Near The University of Pennsylvania

Lauren Sloss 22 comments

Philadelphia as a whole is a culinary playground worth exploring, but West Philly has plenty of gems to keep you busy (just a short walk from campus). And getting out into West Philly was easily one of the best things I did while in school. Of course, Penn has no shortage of way satisfying late-night greasy spoon spots, which are equally important. Here's a look at my favorites. More
