What’s Everyone Eating During Main Line Today Restaurant Week ?

Hope you are enjoying your week wining and dining during Main Line Today Restaurant Week which runs through September 5. Last weekend I ate at Founding Farmers in KOP and it was delicious. Highlights were the Southern Plate with Ribs, Chicken, and potatoes, my friend had the vegan meatloaf which was very good. We tagged our post #MLTRW and today I’m going to feature a few of the folks who have done the same thing. Let’s go take a look.

Thanks Dhruvi Shah for sharing your dining selections they look so good. I’d like to have two of those deserts.

Brussels Sprouts are one of my favorite veggies, and the Spicy Asian Brussels Sprouts at 333 Belrose Bar & Grill left me #mindblown. Made with peanuts, shishito peppers, and a ginger-lime aioli, those flavors come out in every bite!

The other dish I enjoyed was the Pan-Seared Olive Oil Swordfish with warm white bean-olives & spinach, red pepper sauce, tender baby carrots.

Try these dishes and others during Mainline’s Restaurant Week! All participating restaurants are offering a special three-course menu for lunch priced at $24.95 and dinner priced at $36.95.

Thank you @333_belrose for hosting us and a huge thank you to @aversapr team for a lovely evening!

Charles, he’s joined the new Philadelphia Weekly newspaper, er magazine now. 
 Last night I spotted Eagles player Mark Sanchez at Del Frisco’s. The place was hopping with a lot of big named Eagles and Sixers players, none of which I can remember and didn’t write down. Wait that ‘s right I saw

Former Philles Marlon Anderson (r) (last night he tweeted: On doing a little pregame with , tune in to watch.) also spotted Mike Jerrick, and in another section John Bolaris.
 How long has this been going on – New Couple Alert John Clark and Randyl Case. Randyl looked adorable but for whatever reason my camera missed the first two shots and every one had a laugh til I captured this tender moment at Del Frisco’s last night.

 We all headed to Rumor, where Tee Fish was manning the door with his usual flair.

Wendy Williams hit the Boardwalk with Mayor Don Guardian this weekend for the dedication of the new Wendy Williams Boardwalk bench. Wendy was in amazing spirits talking about
being a true Jersey girl and saying she is going to come back and check
on the bench frequently, also asked the crowd not to pass wind on it – no
joke. She also requested the bench be placed near a delicious eatery and not on a dead spot on the boardwalk, say near Revel. She was in town for the weekend to perform at the Borgata. Friends tell me she didn’t chat about a lot of the things they wanted to hear about, like why did she have that fight with NeNe Leakes, who visited AC a few days later and seems to be getting more than a bench in AC.

 Apologies to Monique Crawford for not making it to her going away party. I did see her a few weeks ago when she told me of her plans, and I gave her an extra good luck hug. I’m excited for her, glad I met her, and thankful she spent some of her life here in Philly. It was always fun to photograph her.

When I saw her at Bank and Bourbon I knew that would be the last time. I really hate to say good-bye to people, and those parties.

I have a long bad habit of skipping those parties. Sorry. xo
