For Science: Meal Delivery Services

May 16, 14 For Science: Meal Delivery Services

Posted by in bits and bites

A lot of people think that, because I write about restaurants, I don’t cook. False. Actually, I don’t think you can write about restaurants (or any sort of food) if you don’t cook.  I’ve been cooking since I was kid, and haven’t stopped.  Sometimes, though, even though I work from home, the cooking...

Review: Zooted Delivery + Meatball Kitchen

Hanging out on either coast for work has really spoiled me. I’ve complained in the past about the lack of delivery options– until recently, La Rosa’s and King Wok were pretty much our only delivery options. No more.

Just plain Mike-Sell’s, which I learned early on were different because of peanut oil (it said so on the bag, after all). So when Mike-Sell’s...

Giveaway: Penn Station

Feb 28, 14 Giveaway: Penn Station

Posted by in bits and bites, giveaways

If you didn’t win the Art of Food tickets, I’m sorry– but I do have a chance for you to win $20 to my favorite local guilty-pleasure chain. Penn Station is not an “authentic” cheesesteak — they use real provolone and add banana peppers, not wiz and weird pressed steak like they do in Philly...

Pontiac Bourbon & Barbecue to open in Summer

I don’t think Vine Street smells good enough. You have the wafting of donuts, tacos, pizza, truffle fries, fried chicken, Asian food… what’s it missing? Barbecue, of course. Dan Wright is opening up his next restaurant, Pontiac Bourbon & Barbecue, “sometime this summer”, said Wright when I spoke to...
