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. So much so, that we never got around to writing a review. Maybe the chef was having a bad night, considering our raviolis […]

Girasol…another Top Chef Success!

During our visit to California this Summer, we were excited to find out that recent and returning Top Chef contestant CJ Jacobson had just opened a restaurant minutes away from where we were staying.  We booked our reservation asap… We arrived with friends at Girasol in Studio City on a warm Friday evening. The place was […]

Dining in a Distrito Bug

After years of listening to mixed reviews, we finally hit up Distrito, a Mexican restaurant from Iron Chef Jose Garces in the University City area of Philly. This is restaurant number 3 in our mission to try all the Garces Group eateries. We made our Friday 7:30pm reservations right on time, found free parking on […]

A Village Burger

Finally! After 3 different failed attempts to get a table without an hour wait, we scored 2 seats at the bar as soon as we walked in. We’ve been trying to taste the famous Village Whiskey burger for months now. Well, we are happy to announce it was everything we were hoping it would be. […]
