  1. Thank you for all of the great suggestions!
  2. Greetings folks, I will be visiting the Dupont Circle area in February. Looking for breakfast, lunch and dinner ideas. Since I'll only be there for 2 days, I'll only have time to hit up 4-5 spots realistically. I will be with my hubby who is NOT too adventurous. In other words, he's not really a fan of exotic cuisines. He's a meat and potatoes type of guy. He likes standard American fare, Italian, and stuff like that. I'm definitely hitting up Archipelago for tiki drinks (pre-dinner) one night. Thank you in advance!
  3. Thank you for sharing this, sis! My stats have blown up. :)
  4. I accepted an invitation to check out the new afternoon tea offering at Fork Restaurant last month when it was only being offered during the holiday season. Lo and behold, due to popular demand, they've decided to extend it at least until this June. There are only a handful of places where you can enjoy a proper afternoon tea in Philadelphia, so I'm glad they've decided to keep this going. It was quite enjoyable and it was such a pleasure to meet legendary Philadelphia restauranteur Ellen Yin. https://phillygrub.blog/2019/01/05/afternoon-tea-at-fork-restaurant/
  5. Thank you for posting this! I grew up near Jim Thorpe (in neighboring Schuylkill County) but I haven't ever spent much time in Jim Thorpe, so I wanted to go up there in the fall. We didn't make it in 2018; hoping to go this coming autumn.
  6. FYI - Kanella's is still open in Center City. The Queen's Village location closed a while back, though. It will be a new Italian restaurant called Fiore's Fine Foods opening soon: https://www.fiore-finefoods.com/
  7. FYI - this was a comped experience. Disclosure is on the blog article but wanted to clarify that here as well.
  8. I put together a roundup of food tours in Philly. A nice way to explore the city's food scene. https://phillygrub.blog/2018/12/17/top-philadelphia-food-tours/
  9. Here are scenes and some info from the ribbon cutting yesterday. "Del Frisco's Grille Ribbon Cutting" by Amaris Pollock on phillygrub.blog
  10. Last month, we took a road trip to the Crowne Plaza in Reading, PA to experience two hidden gems located inside of the hotel, The Chef's Table and The Pastry Studio. Here's the piece I did: "The Chef's Table and The Pastry Studio at the Crowne Plaza in Reading, PA" by Marilyn Johnson on phillygrub.blog
  11. Yes, I am beyond sad. I'm so grateful I got to know her over the past 2 years or so. She was such a lovely person and her drinks are beyond reproach.
