Day of the Dead Sweets

Hi 'Hounds,

Does anyone know of any Mexican bakeries in town that sell sugar skulls and other Day of the Dead sweets?

I imagine there must be somewhere in S. Philly but I'm not sure where.

Thanks so much!

Blackfish or Modo Mio?

We decided to go with Blackfish - more of an occasion destination (maybe for a proposal...? fingers crossed haha) . Modo Mio remains at the top of my list, however. Thanks all!

Blackfish or Modo Mio?

Hi Chowhounds,

Unbenownst to each other, my boyfriend and I each made a reservation for our anniversary dinner this Friday - him at Blackfish and me at Modo Mio.

Which restaurant should we choose? We have not been to either.

Thanks in advance for any insight!

Thanks for the report! Good to know about the portions on the small plates, too.

Did anyone go for opening night last night? I have reservations for tomorrow and am eager to hear any reviews!

Clams in Philly

I tried there on a suggestions from an earlier post, they didn't have them. Same with Wegman's and Philadelphia Fish and Lobster Co. Maybe I'm just s.o.l. on this one.

Clams in Philly

I'm a New England native who is dying to make some steamers - steamed softshell clams served with broth and drawn butter. I can't seem to find softshells at local grocery stores though, only cherrystones. Any advice for where I can try in my quest for authentic steamers?

Thanks in advance for any guidance!
