Now Open: P.Y.T.

Several years ago, I was at Toqué in Montreal, where I had my first bourbon milkshake. Since then, I’ve tried to persuade most of the restaurateurs I know to add one to their menu, but none of them thought it was a very good idea. Now Northern Liberties party animal Tommy Up (interviewed here in the July issue of Philly Mag) has gone and stolen my idea, opening burger-and-boozy-milkshake joint P.Y.T. at the Piazza on 2nd Street.

There’s nothing very creative going on here, though since you’re mixing high-proof spirits with dairy products, maybe less is more, in the 3 a.m. curled-up-on-the-bathroom-floor sense. I’d stick with the Jack Rabbit Slim (chocolate ice cream and Maker’s Mark) or the Jon (I’m guessing they mean Juan, or it’s some inside joke) Valdez (coffee ice cream, Kahlua, and Patron XO) at $10 each. And as if you needed more caloric intake, I hear that the baby burgers are bangin’.

P.Y.T., 1001 North 2nd Street, 215-268-7825.

    Victor, have you been there yet? ‘Cause your insincere (and age-inappropriate) use of “bangin'” suggests you haven’t actually eaten the food, which is quite good.

    Also, had you troubled to call PYT you would know they haven’t served a single boozy milkshake yet.. they are in fact closed until Friday. Snap judgement, much?

    From the Slang Dictionary:

    the bomb, extremely good.
    “That new cd is bangin!”

    Well there chesty perhaps you need to go back to your kidnergarten class and find out how to use dictionaries or other sources to actually school yourself before you attack others? Hmm yes perhaps.

  • doggyg81

    Oh and chesty the molesty? Feast your eyes upon this bangin menu and oh but my does it mention “adult” shakes with spirits? Why yes, Yes it does!

    Just cause something is on a menu doesn’t mean they have it, you old ugly doggy, you.

    Unlike yourself, I was invited to Friends & Family and the loaded milkshakes were not available.

    I also know what ‘bangin means.
