For some, the beginning of spring conjures up images of blooming flowers and buzzing bees. At Foobooz, the beginning of spring means Meat Week.
Mica is celebrating Meat Week with a special Heritage Pork Tasting Menu from March 18th-20th. The meal begins with a Red Wine Cured Pork Jowl with Honey Crisp Apple, followed by Pork Belly in a Celery and Sesame Broth with Shitake Mushrooms and Udon Noodles. The next course is a Pork Loin served with Pickled Beets, Horseradish and Dill, and finally the meal will end with ginger creme brûlée topped with lemongrass sugar.
The meal is $45 a person (not including tax and gratuity). You can make reservations here.
Sure, tasting menus are all well and good. And we certainly see a lot of them in and around Philadelphia. But Chip Roman and his crew at Mica in Chestnut Hill are rolling one out this Wednesday and Thursday night that is all about glorious excess–a 4-course foie gras tasting.
The dinner will run on two nights (October 8th and 9th) and will run you $45 per person (which is kinda a steal). You can make reservations here or call (267) 335-3912 to call dibs on your seat.
Oh, and we have a menu, too.

Today, OpenTable revealed its Top 100 restaurants “fit for foodies” in America. The list was determined by OpenTable’s analysis of more than five million reviews of more than 20,000 restaurants across the country. The list includes twelve restaurants from Philadelphia, the second most restaurants from one city, only Portland, Oregon had more.
The list includes a high concentration of restaurants from California, Oregon and Pennsylvania but not as many from traditional restaurant cities like Chicago (five restaurants), Los Angeles (five), New York (four) and San Francisco (one).
