Square Peg In Primetime

Chuck Hughes, of the Food Channel show Chuck’s Eat the Street travels America’s most famous streets in search of cuisine that help define the history behind those roadways. During his trip down Philadelphia’s Walnut Street, Hughes found himself at Square Peg, where chef Matt Levin showed Hughes what’s happening in Levin’s kitchen.

In celebration, Square Peg will be hosting a viewing party tomorrow, October 9th at 8 p.m. The episode will air at 8:30 p.m, so you’ll have plenty of time to order the $5 Poutine and $3 Kool-Aid Pickled Watermelon garnished Wheat Beer, which were both featured in the episode.

Hughes also filmed at Zahav, Marabella Meatball Co., and Capogiro for the episode.

    appropriately, that picture wasn’t taken in the kitchen.

    I had the new chicken dish they added a few weeks ago. This man should not be on television unless it’s a comedy

    What an odd selection. If the focus is on ‘famous’ streets with a stated mission having to do with some sort of vested ‘restaurant history’ there–why Square Peg, which is still new, at BEST unevenly reviewed, and not exactly indicative of what Walnut St. has ever been known for? And Zahav, while an honorary if not technical member of Walnut St., is great, but would anyone consider that a “Restaurant Row” location? And sorry, but Marabellas meatball shop is just not a place I’ve ever heard a thing about. (I mean, I know it exists, I know who the Marabellas are, I just haven’t gotten the impression that it’s a place that inspires any strong opinions. But maybe it’s just popular with a demographic I don’t interact with much.)

    If they are going for history, they’ve at least piqued my curiosity in that I have no idea how they’ll nail that with this list. Obviously they’re not going for currently hot “restaurant rows.” Are they solely going for points by covering things that are relatively uncovered?

    Marabellas’ marinara is awesome. They have a ~$24 or so spaghetti dinner to go that is a weekly staple at my house. I like that they are getting press.

    Chuck looks annoyed!
