Well, if you read yesterdays 12-Pack of Wine Week deals, you should already have some idea. But if you’re looking for something more (or something that is only happening tonight), we’re hear to help. Here’s the best of what’s happening tonight for Philly Wine Week.
Sure, dates and dinners with friends are nice, but sometimes you just want to grab a meal all by yourself. Maybe you’re too busy to make plans, or you just need some alone time. Or maybe you just want to order all the appetizers on the menu and not have to share them. Whatever your reason for dining alone, we’ve got the six best places in Philly to treat yourself.
So, you know, happy Valentine’s Day…
Tonight, Friday, December 5th, Jamonera will be taking over the food cart at the Garage. Chef Lindsay McClain of Randy and the King and Andy Stahl of Jamonera are serving up short rib sliders and sweet potato sliders (add a fried quail egg if you so desire), potato pancakes, and Barbuzzo favorite, salted caramel budino.
All items are under $6 and the Garage will begin serving up the tiny buns and bites at 6 p.m.
It’s late night and you’re about to dip into rent money to keep the buzz going – but 13th Street’s got ya covered when it comes to late night happy hour deals.
Lolita has had a late night happy hour since it retooled, but now it includes a Mexican take on the Citywide Special. Get a taco (some food in the stomach), a shot of tequila, and a Tecate for just $10. Or you can do the two tacos for $5 deal and pair that with a cerveza for $3 or a margarita for $6. The deal’s available from 10 p.m. until 11 p.m. Monday-Thursday.
Chef Lindsay McClain, from Jamonera (and former Chopped champion), is bringing her game to the Garage tomorrow and will be serving completely gluten-free Seoul Food this Thursday, starting at 6 p.m.
The all-Korean menu will include Korean pork tacos, vegetarian Korean shiitake tacos and kimchi fried rice, as well as Barbuzzo‘s legendary (and very non-Korean) budino, for dessert.
The event is a first-come first-served type deal, so you’d better get there as soon as work lets out and grab your tacos and budino before they’re gone.
Summer ain’t over yet. At least not on 13th Street, where Marcie Turney and Val Safran are running three nights of seafood specials at their restaurants to celebrate all the bountiful (and delicious) sea critters we eat during the hottest months.
From Sunday, August 10, through Tuesday, August 12, there will be special seafood-inspired menus, with beverage pairings, offered at each of their four popular Midtown Village restaurants. We’re talking ceviches at Lolita, a crab boil at Jamonera, lobster spaghetti at Little Nonna’s, and a mixed seafood grill at Barbuzzo. The dinners are running $45 per person (which includes a paired drink), excluding tax and gratuity. Check out all the menus after the jump.
Philadelphia chef Lindsay McClain of Jamonera will be competing on Food Network’s Chopped this evening. McClain, along with three other chefs, will prepare three courses – appetizer, entree, dessert – using all of the items in her basket, one of which is obscure.
Tune in and show your support tonight, Tuesday, June 24th at 10 p.m. to check out Lindsay compete for the title of Chopped Champ.
Jamonera is hosting a Paella and Sangria Night tonight, Monday, June 23rd. Attendees will get a tapas appetizer, a pitcher of either red or white sangria and, of course, paella. But your decision may get tough when it comes down to what type of paella you’re getting because Jamonera is offering up three options – seafood, vegetarian and a mixed dish, which includes seafood and meat.
Dinner is $35 per person. To make reservations, call 215-922-6061 or visit http://jamonerarestaurant.com.
Has Philly Beer Week already blown out your taste buds? Too many IPAs? Then maybe some negronis or sherry are what the palate doctor ordered. It’s Negroni Week and more than thirty bars and restaurants are participating. Everyone from Avance to Zahav are participating with a portion of proceeds going to the charity of the bar’s choice.
Check out the Negroni Week website for participating bars and the charities they are benefitting.
Sometimes we just crave paella. The mix of spices, fresh seafood and rice is a dish that works no matter the weather. So here are six paella dishes in and around Philadelphia that deliver.
