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.

Six Pack: Suckling Pig In Philadelphia

 

Editor’s Note: This week, we’re going to be introducing our new army of interns to you, the Foobooz readership. And it occurred to us that what better way for you to get to know them a little then for them to tell you all about something they loved to eat. Thus, we set them each to assembling their own Foobooz Six Pack, focusing on something they loved.

Our first submission came from Alex Tewfik, a student at Saint Joseph’s University in Philadelphia, PA. As a food and restaurant enthusiast, Alex spends every waking moment of his day inventing new ways to keep himself eating while hiding how fat he actually is from the rest of the world.

Take it away, Alex…

Matyson’s Suckling Pig Sundays are no more. They have moved on to bigger things. Fortunately, the rest of the city hasn’t. So if you need to satiate your suckling pig cravings, there are plenty of places in and around the city that know how to cook that piglet just right. So with that in mind, here it is: The best places to get suckling pig in Philadelphia.

Slow Roasted Suckling Pig at Il Pittore

Chef Chris Painter’s claim to fame at his semi-eponymous restaurant, Il Pittore, takes three whole days to perfect, and that’s exactly what it ends up being: perfect. Cured in salt, sugar, and herbs for 15 hours, it’s then slow roasted for 12 hours, then buried in pig fat, then portioned and pressed over night. The slow-roasted meat sits on a bed of whole baby carrots and sautéed cavalo nero, swimming in a rich guanciale jus. Crowned with sweet pear mostarda, this pig is a real beauty.

More suckling pig this way…
