Pastrami is having a bit of a moment. We’re importing it from New York. Its spices are finding their way onto fish and chicken wings. And now we’re celebrating Philadelphia’s pastrami explosion (which, not for nothing, would be a great name for a band) with our first Foobooz Six Pack: Six places to score pastrami from Fairmount to the Reading Terminal Market.
Mitch Prensky came up with the genius idea of coating chicken wings in pastrami spices. Dipped into the Thousand Island dressing, you have a bar snack that’s tough to beat.

Looking to celebrate Hanukkah through your stomach? Here are some local spots doing something special for Hanukkah.
Zahav - Every night during Hanukkah Zahav is offering a special $45 per person menu featuring glazed brisket, lattkes and young chicken al Ha’esh.
Art of Bread by Georges Perrier – Special menu through Hanukkah will feature cheddar cheese bread, Challah bread plain, Challah bread raisin and mini Challah bread.
Spread Bagelry reopened today, three months to the day that a fire closed the three-day old bagel shop. But today they are back making Montreal-style bagels and with more air conditioning, lower prices and a better chimney.
An individual bagel still costs $2 but just about everything else in the store has dropped a couple of dollars. Today we tried The Classic (pictured above) with salmon, Amish Farm cream cheeese, giant wedge of plum tomato, and spring onion. The $9 sandwich would have been $11 on the original menu.
