Philly Cooks 2014

On Wednesday, Feb. 19th, some of Philly’s biggest restaurants and food fans gathered to celebrate Philly Cooks 2014- The Big Event, presented by Philly Mag and foobooz. We were excited to partake in the festivities and sample a variety of unique dishes, fine wines, beers and spirits. The Big Event was the grand finale to a three day […]

Benefits of Red Wine

We came across this very informative and easy-to-read infographic on the “Benefits of Red Wine”… As if we really needed to give you more reasons to drink a glass…or maybe a bottle. Who are we to judge anyway. 😉 Cheers!

FARMiCiA- Dinner vs Lunch

Last year we visited FARMiCiA in Old City, Philadelphia on a busy Friday night. We had such high hopes for the place but left feeling uninspired and more than a little disappointed.

It was an epic night that brought together […]

The place was […]

On a whim last Summer we visited Beso in Hollywood, a Latin inspired restaurant owned by actress Eva Longoria. While we didn’t write a review on it then, we definitely knew we’d be back this […]
