Any suggestions for quality and casual where the slab of meat takes center stage?

Umai Umai denied reservation for 10. What gives?

You may be right. But I went so far as to suggest placing "family-style" order in ahead of time for the rolls that we'd be ordering, but to no avail. The dishes at Umai Umai are well suited for this and the quality kitchen is more than capable. But if it's their policy then so be it.

They could. Basically said kitchen wouldn't be able to handle it. Pretty strange.

Sunday Dining in Philly tonight...

Looking for suggestions for special Sunday-only menus. Anyone got a line on something casual and great that may have slipped the gastro-hipsters attention?

best burger in philly

Had the burger at Parc the other day. It was perfect, as were the frites. Ask for Ailoi for the frites. A little overpriced as is everything at Parc.

Oysters in NOLA..............

Take the St Charles line to the end. It stops at Cooter Browns. Huge,sweet,briny Gulf oysters for $12/dz, horseradish that will clear your sinuses for a month and a hugeselection of excellent beers on draft. Been there 3 times already (in two days!), as I'm staying uptown with a friend. They open at 1pm on Sunday. You will not be disappointed if oysters are what you seek. Also, Squeal on Oak St will be open. Kick-ass BBQ!

What's open evening of December 25?

We're staying at a friend's house Uptown (Near Maple Leaf Bar). Our Xmas day is based here. Cooter Brown's for Oysters (been there 3 times already! Sweet, Briny and PLUMP! At $12/dz and 30 great beers on tap, it can't be beat IMO. I will never go back to the quarter for Oysters). Squeal (BBQ Joint on Oak St. Had a convo with the Chef yesterday while he was finishing up some 'cue on the outside smoker. looked and smelled AWESOME). Then Maple Leaf Bar for Shrimp Boil and Walter "Wolfman" Washington at Maple Leaf. He kicks ass!

Blackfish or Modo Mio?

I was at Modo Mio two months ago. Extremely Salt-forward and kinda sloppy. Had good experiences before. Blackfish is a little more refined, on the whole.

Not a pipe dream at all. We are able to work with our clients' budgets moreso than most other facilities, mainly due to the fact we do just about everything from scratch. Give a call and set up a tour.

Philly July 4th weekend

Kraftwork does this as well. 24 good/ great beers on tap... you can really spread out. The food is better than Dandelion IMO.

KP is good on all fronts. Dandelion is overpriced but good. Fish and Chips at Pub and Kitchen blows them away IMO and far cheaper.

best burger in philly

The Churchill Burger at Pub and Kitchen is a beautiful burger! The caramelized onions are done proper "french-onion-soup" style and are perfection (Thyme-Sherry-Butter). The beef is amazing. Do not add cheese! Rare - Med Rare for this one. I rarely think $18 is justified for a burger....but in this case, it is. Just try it!
That being said...Kraftwork, Sidecar, Royal Tavern, Grace Tavern, Monk's, Good Dog....all great!

Thanks for the kind words. I guess it feeds my ego that 4 years down the line you're still hearing about the food!

Not sure when you had your wedding there, but I've been the Chef for almost 8 years. We rarely get keg requests. We do allow clients to either bring in there own alcohol free-of-charge or we'll pick it up for a nominal charge. They also get all unused product back. Pretty sweet IMO.

Best place in Philly for Dim Sum newbie?

Lakeside Diner..hands down. Prepared to order, ultra fresh product!! Never had a single bad thing. Only drawback...No alcohol. But I've seen people bring in there own beer and wine, although I've never attempted this. Get there SOON! It's on 9th street between Race and Vine...
