But Tuesday isn’t the only day that Bufad offers something special. On Wednesdays, the 13th and Spring Garden Street pizza spot is offering Meatless Midweek. For $35 a couple, you get a four-course dinner to share.
Gene Giuffi’s Square Pie takes over their recently closed Cochon location as of tomorrow. Yesterday the ovens made the short move from the west side of 6th and Catharine Streets to the corner of Passyunk and Catharine.
If all goes well, the Best of Philly winner for new pizzeria will be back in business tomorrow for lunch.

A tipster let us in on this juicy tidbit. There’s a Santucci’s (expansion of the South Philly brand) coming to North Broad Street. Signs in the window show that the pizzeria is going in at 655 N Broad Street, the former home of Alessandro’s Pizza.
In addition to another eatery on North Broad, the location also means the neighborhoods of Fairmount, Spring Garden, Callowhill and Poplar will have access to Santucci’s excellent square pizzas via delivery.

Looking back, I was naive to think that I was going to score a Beddia pizza last Saturday.
It was almost 5 by the time I lined up outside, and I had plenty of company. A quick headcount indicated that even if most people resisted ordering a second pie, it was unlikely that I would walk away with one. Beddia only releases 40 pizzas onto the streets of Fishtown on a given night, and since Bon Appetite declared this micro parlour the “best pizza in America,” slices have been hard to come by.

There’s no point in getting between a Jersey shore-goer and their favorite pizza place: they’ll travel extra miles just for one slice, they’ll defend the cheese-to-sauce ration vehemently, and they’ll dream about a hot pie in the dead of winter. So which Jersey Shore pizza shop is the best? It’s time to have your say. Last week we listed the top picks in each South Jersey shore town and 10,000 votes came flooding in. Now we’ve taken the top vote-getters in each town and are asking you to weigh in once again, to crown the ultimate winner. The victor will be announced online and be featured in next year’s shore guide in the magazine. A few housekeeping notes: Voting ends on Sunday, August 2nd; you don’t have to vote for a place in every town to have your say; you are invited to vote once a day; and if you decide to try every spot and wind up gaining five pounds, don’t blame us.
Make your vote count
There’s a reason you’ll walk past 15 Boardwalk pizza places in the hot sun to get to your favorite: A good slice is worth the extra effort. So which Shore joint is truly the King of all Pizza? That’s for you to decide. We’ve picked the top places in each South Jersey Shore town, and are asking for you to vote for your favorite (once a day, every day) from now until July 26th. (No, you don’t have to vote for a spot in every town to have your say.) Then we’ll take the top vote-getter in each town and have a final face-off, to name the absolute best pizza place down the Shore. The winner will be announced online and featured in next summer’s annual shore guide in the magazine.
Confession of a city critic: Whenever I have to schlep out to the suburbs, I can’t help but grit my teeth. Expectations drop beyond the county line. For every Junto, there are three Saint Jameses, and there goes an hour’s worth of unleaded into the ledger of our atmospheric doom.
But I exaggerate. The Saint James’s awfulness lay far beyond the reach of replication, much less in triplicate. Yet trepidation nevertheless filled the family wagon as we made our way to its replacement in Ardmore’s Suburban Square. Owner Rob Wasserman rebooted the ill-starred concept in March as a pizzeria called Parlor, where pies bearing somewhat distressing names such as Buffy and Beastmode awaited us. Read more »
In a Facebook post, Pizzeria Vetri declares that the weekend starts at 3 p.m. A sentiment that we can certainly get behind today. And the Chancellor Street location is offering happy hour beginning at 4 p.m. That means $2 off of draft beer and wine plus half-priced margherita pizzas.
We’ll see you there.
Pizzeria Vetri – Rittenhouse [Foobooz]
It’s been clear since the get go that Marc Vetri, Jeff Benjamin and the rest of the Vetri Family team planned to expand their Pizzeria Vetri concept beyond Philadelphia. And now through their connections with Urban Outfitters, they’ve locked up their first out-of-market location. Benjamin tells Danya Heninger for Billy Penn that the Pizzeria Vetri will be opening next to an Austin Urban Outfitters.
Closer to home, Vetri’s restaurants could become part of Urban Outfitters’ lifestyle village in Devon. That project is slated to include an Urban Outfitters store plus a Terrain and Anthropologie, as well as 138-unit apartment building and restaurants. Though the deal isn’t finalized, Benjamin tells Heninger that there will likely be more than one Vetri Family restaurant in the Devon Yard project.
