In September, I finally made it to Honey’s Sit ’N Eat in Northern Liberties for a delicious, moderately priced brunch. There is always a long wait to dive into eggs, grits, potatoes pancakes and sandwiches on any given weekend. Brunch was so tasty, I wanted to try lunch at Honey’s.
Several weeks ago, I had a chat with a friend who has been a long-standing chef in the city. We discussed the annoying trend of eating in the dark and the difficulty of reading menus, the majority of which are printed in tiny pale type.
On a November evening in 2000, Mary Ann Ferrie and her husband Dan Grimes opened Chloe, a quiet, unassuming BYOB just across the street from the Betsy Ross House. Word quickly spread about the couple’s approach to global cuisine and their dedication to simple, fresh ingredients.
I pay close attention to food trends because of their positive effects on what I buy and eat in a restaurant.
