Our healthy colleagues over at BeWell report that the design firm behind Morgan’s Pier and Talula’s Garden will next take on 1706 Locust, formerly home to upscale clothing boutique Adresse. The space will be converted into Pure Sweets, a cafe/bakery/juice bar/take-out lunch spot courtesy of Andrea Kyan, whose gluten-free deliciousness biz will be going bricks-and-mortar for the first time.
Kyan just signed the lease today, so she has a while to think about design. As for food, Kyan is thinking healthy, raw and Southeast Asian.
Philadelphia magazine’s 40th anniversary Best of Philly issue is online now. We at Foobooz are highlighting some of our favorite food and drink winners. Here are the winners for best burger, from gastropub to backyard.
We’re not sure what’s the best part—the aged beef blend, Vermont cheddar, smoked bacon, pickles from Brooklyn Brine, or mysterious Churchill Sauce with its dozen-odd ingredients. 124 South 18th Street, Rittenhouse, 215-558-2500.
Morgan’s Pier and chef George Sabatino are presenting a taste of New England this Thursday with an old-fashioned seafood boil. The $35 prix fixe menu features a ton of seafood and sides served family style. Among the highlights are boiled blue crabs with Yards Pale Ale and charred sweet corn with lobster butter and spiced lime.
