What We Love: V-Day Whoopie Pies

A sophisticated take on a favorite dessert

Grocery recently baked up two kinds of special Valentine’s Day whoopie pies featuring chocolate with sweet strawberry filling and red velvet with cinnamon cream cheese. But they’re only available for a limited time, so get them while you still can.

Don’t forget to stop by all the other hot spots on 13th. G Philly can always make a day of it thanks to Marcie Turney and Valerie Safran’s independent shops and eateries. And these two are really doing it up for February.

“We have a month full of great events on the block,” says Safran, including special menus for Valentine’s Day at each of the couple’s restaurants. “Thali Tuesdays at Bindi continue, a Spanish wine dinner at Barbuzzo on Feb. 23, and chocolate, chocolate, chocolate.”

Turney’s Marcie Blaine artisanal chocolates – sold at Verde – recently got a shout out from Oprah in this month’s O magazine.
