Does this woman not just immediately make you think of chili?
London Grill is turning 24 years old this month, and chef Michael McNally is celebrating with four favorite dishes from the restaurant’s past. Each week, the restaurant will serve up a fan-favorite recipe, some of which haven’t seen the light of day for over ten years.
For example, on Wednesday, March 4, you can try “Chili Elizabeth Taylor,” (which was made famous while the actress was filming Cleopatra because she would frequently send her limo driver out to pick her up an order). The following Wednesday, March 11, you can dine on the 2007 Philly Cooks Dish of the Year, Spinach and Ricotta Gnudi. On March 18 they’re serving “HRC” (horseradish-crusted) Salmon, and on March 25 the special will be Szechuan Duck Spring Rolls.

If you missed the Philadelphia premiere of Battle of amFAR at this year’s QFest, you can catch it with the rest of the world tonight when it airs for the first time on HBO. Coming on the heels of World AIDS Day, the 40-minute documentary chronicles the mission of unlikely partners in crime Elizabeth Taylor and research scientist Dr. Mathilde Krim to create the nation’s first AIDS research foundation, amFAR. The ladies’ mission was to reveal the disease as a worldwide pandemic in the attempt to generate more funding for scientific research. The doc depicts their hard-fought journey and ultimate successes, and highlights the org’s continuing importance in today’s fight for a cure. Plus, a healthy dose of White Diamonds-era Liz only enhances the film as a mandatory watch for all LGBTers.
It airs tonight at 9 p.m. Check out the trailer below.
