The Year In Review – August 2007
We’ll be looking back at the year in Foobooz. Today we take a look back at August 2007.
Dish of August
Brioche bread pudding at Silk City
Revel in the bad-for-you glory that is the brioche bread pudding at Silk City. Served in giant slabs under massive dollops of fresh whipped cream and ice cream, itâ€™s as smooth and, um, silky, as a moist pound cake. Dig a little farther in and youâ€™ll be rewarded with caches of rich, runny chocolate.
- Best Of Philly came out and we mapped all the food and drink winners. It got others blood boiling.
- One of the unintended consequences of the smoking ban, more children in pubs.
- Even PETA found something to love at Citizens Bank Park.
- Fine dining in the Northeast? And we don’t mean Chickie’s & Pete’s.
- August was time to say goodbye to Independence Brew Pub. Evidently the landlords actually wanted Independence to pay their rent.
- Lose one, gain one. Dock Street opened in August.
- Brunch at Lacroix, it’s “lard-laden ecstasy.”
- Even though we had one of their meatball sandwiches we still have a hard time believing Johnny Brenda’s had a stand at the Linc.
- Philadelphia Magazine takes the low road and blows Craig LaBan’s cover.
- 5 1/2 meals in Chinatown in just three days. That’s what Finding Philly did.
- Could Azure have the best nachos in the city or is it somewhere else?
- August saw the beginning of the revolving door of chefs at Silk City.
- Johnny Brenda’s does donuts. Eat them.
- RIP, Michael Jackson
