Blackfish is offering lobster for Halloween | Photo by Samuel Markey.
Chip Roman’s Blackfish and Mica as well as Ben Puchowitz’s Matyson are offering up special Halloween themed menus this week.
At Blackfish the menu is all about lobster. And if lobster doesn’t scare you, maybe the vampire squid will. No? OK, how about the price? $45 for a four-course lobster tasting dinner? Nope, ok maybe Blackfish isn’t so scary.
At Mica it’s a foie gras-centric menu. Ewww, liver. No? Not scared? Well at least the Hanibal Lector first course and bloody beet ravioli fit the season.
Matyson is going with a Franken-food theme. Puchowitz and his staff are combining unusual ingredients to make winning combinations. Eating anything named “Fnocchi” takes some bravery.

Each week, Mica does a mid-week tasting menu and this one grabbed our attention because it is all about lobster. The four-course lobster tasting is available today through Friday for $45 per person.
And this Sunday is also Chestnut Hill’s Second Sunday promotion where shopping, strolling and brunching is on the agenda. Mica is one of about a dozen restaurants that participate. Check out Mica’s brunch menu here.

Yes, we still have some time before the first episode of the new season of Top Chef, featuring Nick Elmi, Jason Cichonski and a bunch of other people who aren’t from Philly.
But for those of you out there who just can’t wait, we thought it might be nice to offer up a bit of history–a way for you to get a handle on our two hometown chefs and maybe come to understand, once the show starts, why this one is freaking out over his pork chops or why that one is doing that thing to that scallop. To that end, we’ve assembled a Six Pack of places where the two chefs trained, rose to prominence, made names for themselves or, in the case of Jason Cichonski, are still currently cooking (Elmi is unemployed at the moment, but working on opening his first restaurant–Laurel on East Passyunk).
It would make a helluva restaurant crawl. Or maybe something to do on the weekend before Top Chef premiers. But we’re not telling you how to live your life…
