BP To Become Apple Store?

If we had a nickel for every Apple Store in Philadelphia rumor we heard, we’d be very rich. But this tale comes from Mac Network News and not PhillyBlog. Brasserie Perrier may become an Apple Store.

The company [Apple] has allegedly signed a lease to take over the location of the former Brasserie Perrier restaurant, situated at 1619 Walnut Street. The surrounding portion of Walnut is said to be a high-end shopping and eating district, ideally suited to Apple’s strict aesthetics.

Brasserie Perrier at Boyds

Brasserie Perrier at BoydsThe Daily News has lunch at Brasserie Perrier at Boyds and finds the experience will chase away your bad mood and it’s a bargain too.

What I most enjoy about BP Café is that it is the Filene’s basement of food. Even the common folk can afford a cup of coffee ($2.50) and a slice of Le Bec-Fin pastries ($4) here. With a quick stop at the Wine and Spirits store down the block, you can enjoy a hearty lunch and make it an occasion. Then bask in the knowledge you’ve had the food out of the kitchens of Le-Bec and Brasserie for a fraction of the cost.

Tasting Philly Cooks!

Drew Lazor heads to Chester to check out Philadelphia Magazine’s Philly Cooks! extravaganza. And after 20 plates he can tell us that “some of the food was really crappy. For every great dish, there was a salty stew, flavorless prime rib sandwich or terrifying gnocchi-on-a-toothpick waiting to suckerpunch my palate back into Arghsville.”

But there were some winners:
Positano Coast by Aldo Lamberti’s Crudo Skewer over Prosecco won Best Seafood Dish.
Brasserie Perrier’s veal cheek with goat cheese torellini got Best Meat Dish.
Valanni’s Oreo beignet received best dessert honors.
