Greatest Hits and What You Missed: Openings, Closings, Chef Moves, Dirty Glassware, Coffee, Pizza and Free Giant Sushi

Good news, bad news, chefs leaving, restaurants opening–we had a little something for everyone this week at Foobooz. Here’s what you might’ve missed.

First off, we did a lot of eating. At Taqueria Feliz, for starters.

And the Black Powder Tavern in Wayne

And Rex 1516

And Stella Rosa

Then we all headed down to COOK for a not-very-Cinco-De-Mayo-inspired Open Stove night

But then there was some bad news: chef Anne Coll is leaving Meritage

But this was followed by good news. Because the Cheu Noodle guys are bringing dim sum to East Passyunk

And then more good news: Joe’s Steaks is expanding to Fishtown

Plus, the Feliz crew is bringing Beast & Ale to Manayunk

Charlie Was A Sinner is just a week off

There’s a new craft distillery in Pottstown

Rival Bros. has a storefront

And we told you how to get free giant Sushi from Hai Street Kitchen the day before it opens to the public

Finally, we launched our Foobooz Down The Shore coverage for the season with a list of food and booze festivals coming to the Shore this month
