Three Stars for Il Pittore

Trey Popp’s second review in this months Philadelphia magazine has praise for Chris Painter, who lays it on the line at Il Pittore.

Painter’s slow-cooked meats are all the silkiness you need. There are veal cheeks here with buttered beef marrow, blood-orange marmalade melting into them in a dance of citric tang and sweetness—the best I’ve ever had. So, too, the four-day suckling pig: cured, basted, boned, pressed flat under weights, and finally coaxed to a crisp-skinned perfection. No two ways about it: The guy has a way with baby mammals.

Three Stars – Excellent
