Serious Eats Declares the Roast Pork Sandwich Our Greatest Culinary Attraction

Reading-Term-Roast-Pork-BeefSerious Eats wasn’t very impressed with the state of Philadelphia’s cheesesteak scene but is a big fan of our roast pork sandwiches. Features Editor Niki Achitoff-Gray tried 14 of them recently and came up with her best six.

It’s a pretty good list, we just wish it were easier to find ANY roast pork sandwich after nightfall.

Paesano’s: Margate, Returns for a Second Season

Over the past year, Paesano’s has been doing a bit of an expansion experiment. They’ve opened down the shore a year ago, today; they’ve opened, and closed, in Woody’s; they’ve give us a delivery option.

I’m happy to say, the Paesano’s down the shore is open again. Operating only on weekends (Friday through Sunday), the Philly Style sandwich spot is open in the the Memories Lounge at 9518 Amherst Avenue, Margate, NJ. Shore hours are from 11 a.m. until the crowd dies away.

Pete McAndrews Wins Food Porn Award at Eagles Chiefs Game

On Thursday night, the Eagles and the Chiefs squared off at Lincoln Financial Field. I’ll let the people who know something about the sport opine about the future of the Eagles. I was there for the food and left before the end of the first quarter.

Below, some photos of what you’re going to be eating at the next Eagles home game at the Linc. Hats off to Aramark — the folks actually making and serving the food — for running a pretty tight operation.

That Didn’t Last Long: Paesano’s Out at Woody’s

Well that didn’t last long. The Paesano’s within Woody’s has closed. Announced through its Facebook page, no details were given as to why the less than two-month-old venture went kaput. Paesano’s promises to continue to deliver to “nearly every neighborhood” in the city.

Peter McAndrews continues to serve up Paesano’s Italian Style sandwiches from his Girard Avenue and Italian Market locations. He also is vending from within the Memories Lounge in Margate. McAndrews will also be serving his meatloaf parmesan (pictured above) and four other sandwiches this season at Lincoln Financial Field.

Paesano’s Opening at Woody’s

mcandrews-at-cookMichael Klein is reporting that Peter McAndrews is looking to expand his Paesano’s sandwich shop chain. Paesano’s has locations in Fishtown, the Italian Market and recently opened a location within Margare’s Memories night club. Next, McAndrews is taking the cohabiting concept to Woody’s Bar at 13th and Walnut.

Also on tap for McAndrews, a Paesano’s at Lincoln Financial Field.

McAndrews also owns Modo Mio, Monsu and La Porta. His Popolino in Northern Liberties is closed for the summer.

Paesano’s Is Heading to Margate

paesano_aristaPaesano’s recently posted a job listing on Foobooz, looking for a counter/sandwich maker “for at least one more shop opening in the next couple weeks.” Paesano’s general manager Nate Baynes tells us that the sandwich shop is definitely looking to expand this summer and will “most likely” operate out of Jerry Blavat’s Memories night club in Margate. They are of course aiming to open in time for Memorial Day but there are details to iron out.

One idea is to be open 24-hours a day to cater to people at the Atlantic City casinos.
