  1. Andy Hayler's Reviews --- I want to point out to our members something about both Tamarind and Zaika - London's original Michelin one-star Indian restaurants (both were awarded one star back in 2001). When I looked at Tamarind's website, it listed Zaika as one of their "sister restaurants," which surprised me. However, a quick search revealed that both restaurants were taken over in 2012 by a separate restaurant group: Zaika is an Indian restaurant in Kensington, London. From 2001 to 2004 it was awarded a Michelin star, making it along with the Tamarind in London the first Indian restaurants to be awarded stars. In 2012 it was taken over and joined the same group that also owned the Tamarind restaurant. Note also that Tamarind reopened last year, doubling in size. Neither of the two restaurants currently has a Michelin star. On a humorous note, the new restaurant group reopened Zaika as an *Italian* restaurant, before wisely switching back to Indian in 2013.
  2. Andy Hayler's Numerous Reviews - Note that Bonhams is closing on Dec 21.
  3. I've wanted to try Sweet Lucy's Smokehouse for some time now, and it did not disappoint. Outside, there is plenty of off street parking. Lucy's catering truck marks the spot, and is surrounded by hickory wood. Your olfactory affirms this as you get out of your car and the smoky air wafts up your nose. The restaurant, an old warehouse space, is light and airy with a touch of kitsch. The large windows allow plenty of warm light in and are augmented with hanging wash basin "chandeliers". There are tables and wooden booths which are spaced comfortably. Entering Lucy's, we were faced with several signs displaying the menu and specials. After ordering at the counter, we filled our soft drinks and found a booth. In under 10 minutes our name was called and Mr. MV brought our orders ,in styrofoam containers, to the table. For under $6, you can get a sandwich and 2 sides. I ordered a pulled pork sandwich with baked beans and coleslaw. Mr. MV got a pulled brisket sandwich with mac and cheese, corn bread and collards. We split an order of 4 ribs (for investigative purposes and to be thorough, of course ) The moist pulled pork was a combination of shredded and chunky meat (including a couple burnt ends). The beans were absolutely delicious because they mingle with a generous amount of smoky pork. The coleslaw was fresh, crisp and creamy while not being too sweet. The corn bread was moist and tasty, with a bit of crunch from corn meal. The brisket, also moist, retained an assertive beef flavor. I'd skip the mac and cheese as it was flabby and not cheesy enough. The collards were quite good, but could have been sent into greatness if they were cooked with a ham hock, which I did not detect. Instead, the collards have a nice tang and heat from crushed red pepper flakes. A special note is the brioche-type buns which the sandwiches are served on. Lucy's could have easily skimped on the bun and used the ubiquitous kaiser roll found in Philly. The meats come dressed with their Texas style bbq sauce and you can help yourself to more of the same, or Carolina style vinegar sauce. I found that adding the vinegar sauce (also with red pepper) cut the slight sweetness of the Texas sauce nicely. There are pickles, pepperoncini and sliced cherry peppers also available at the condiment table. Here are some pics on flickr. http://flickr.com/photos/11055869@N02/sets...309242867/show/ Note: Sweet Lucy's is about 10 minutes north of Center City, on I-95. Take the Cottman Ave. exit and make a right at the first light onto State Rd. Sweet Lucy's is 2 blocks up on the left side.
