The owners of SliCE, the Trenton-style pizza joint with locations in South Philly, Rittenhouse and South Jersey, just announced that they’ll be opening the doors to a fourth location in Fishtown in August. And get this: This location will be the first of SliCE’s shops with an organic concept. Owners Marlo and Jason Dilks say just about everything at the new location will be made with organic ingredients (any ingredients that aren’t organic will be labeled), and the rest of their locations will follow suit starting at the end of the year.

Wm. Mulherin’s Sons is the best-smelling restaurant I’ve been to all year.
It’s pretty, sure. Big, new, shiny, polished, fitted out with rich woods, artisan tile and carefully preserved architectural flourishes. But when you’re playing at this level, who isn’t pretty? Packaging matters. Every crack in the walls, every scuff on the floor or scab of tarnish on metal is as deliberate as the gleam on the walnut tables (as though the trees were grown to no other purpose than to be made into them, arranged in this order). There’s a big new skylight that lets brilliance spill in like water. The bar is long, brick-backed and achingly well stocked. The tall windows don’t rattle when the El snaps past, but you can feel it—roaring like a memory of dinosaurs and catching you right below the heart. This place has the design culture of second-gen hipsterism in its bones.

Local Zucchini Salad with fiore sardo cheese and pistacchios with a lemon vinaigrette
Capofitto Pizzeria + Gelateria will be hosting late night pizza “happy hours” on Mondays and Tuesdays this summer.
Dubbed the Pizzata (which is Italian slang for pizza party), you can swing by Capofitto from 8 to 10 p.m. and get pizza for just $10. The two flavors included in this deal are Marinara and Margherita pizzas.
Even if you can’t make it to happy hour, Capofitto is bringing in a slew of new specials for the summer.
New caprese and zucchini salads will be available. As well as panelle fritte, which is a chickpea fritter, and a summer bolognese of slow cooked local pork, white wine, fragrant herbs and fresh paccheri.
You can also officially have cheese for every meal with a dessert cheese plate.
Capofitto Pizza + Gelateria [Foobooz]
Fishtown just got a new place to grab a slice. Sicilian pizza joint Medusa Pizza (2327 Gaul St.) is opening at 4 p.m. today.
The restaurant is owned by the Villico family, who are no rookies to the pizza game. They have three restaurants in Center City (Joe’s Pizza, Ciao, Margherita), but this is the first one they’ve built from the ground up. It’s also their first restaurant to feature a wood-fired oven.
Casimira Villico, the owner, said they choose Fishtown to get out of Center City and into a new and different neighborhood.

Kanella’s old location on Spruce Street will soon be Kanella Grill | Photo by Frances Olson
It has been a just over a year since Kanella closed its doors at its original location and set its sights on Queen Village. It came as a bit of a surprise when Konstantinos Pitsillides closed the super popular BYOB in favor of a bigger and better location but he continues to receive good reviews and the added revenue of a bar.
But what of the original location »

What better way to celebrate hump day (we’re almost halfway through the work week!) than with a pizza party? But this Wednesday night, instead of ordering from a pizza joint that will make your skin feel like it is oozing grease post-slice, head over to Old City’s Capofitto Pizza + Gelato where they’re joining forces with Sip-N-Glo Juicery and Miss Rachel’s Pantry to put on an epic vegan pizza night that so beats delivery.

Here, the results from last summer’s online poll (where over 10,000 votes were cast!). In the first round, you picked your favorite winners in each town, then you voted once again to pick the top pie-tossing shop. Read more »
Hummus with wood-fired pita bread
Starting this Friday, La Colombe’s Fishtown flagship is kicking off a night menu of pizzas, hummus and a selection of desserts. The menu takes full advantage of the cafe’s baking operation and wood-fired oven. The pita, made by head baker John McGrath is finished in the wood-fired oven and makes a perfect vehicle for scooping up the hummus and accompanying pickled vegetables.
There is no such thing as too many good pizza options and on weekends, La Colombe will now offer its own Neapolitan pizzas. In addition to a 10″ Margherita pizza, there will be rotating red and white pies.
