On this edition of Jawn Appetit, we chat with Irene Levy Baker, author of “Unique Eats and Eateries of Philadelphia.” Irene tells us a couple of the origin stories behind some of the city’s most infamous restaurants, and gives us a few tips on how to score reservations at hard-to-book places like Zahav and Vernick.
On this edition of Jawn Appetit, we check out a great Italian restaurant in South Jersey, celebrate the arrival of the latest Shake Shack in Philadelphia, and debate which burger chains are healthier than others. We (one of us, at least) also throw our support behind a certain canceled Netflix series.
EEEEEATSCON made its way to New York City last weekend, and on this edition of Jawn Appetit, we tell you how the crew from The Infatuation put together one of the best food festivals we’ve ever seen. We also debate Philadelphia’s ranking in terms of the country’s best food cities, and marvel at the excitement surrounding the first-ever Krispy Kreme store in Ireland.
The Jawn Appetit crew loves Central Texas so much that they took another trip to Austin to check out the food scene. And in between bites of BBQ and tacos, they took a brief detour to San Antonio to seek out some of the best bites found in Alamo City.
On the latest edition of the Jawn Appetit podcast, the crew gives you their picks for the fall edition of Center City District Restaurant Week. Roy and Chanell also discuss the new food vendors coming to the Bourse Marketplace, and explain why all-you-can-eat isn’t always what it seems.
Philly gets a new grocery store and a new outpost of Iron Hill Brewery… but there are also some changes coming down the pike for chain restaurants that do business in the city. Later in the show, we take a trip to Hearthside in Collingswood and explain how it’s right up there with some of the best BYOBs in the area.
We’ve got a ton of new openings to tell you about this week, including the city’s newest sports bar coming to the Rittenhouse section of the city. And later in the show, we explain how Miss Michigan has some time this week, and show love to an incredible game known as Spider-Man.
