BRIGHT LIGHTS, BIG CITY! PHOTOGRAPHER MICHAEL SPAIN-SMITH TAKES PHILADELPHIA STYLE READERS BEHIND THE SCENES OF THIS ISSUE’S SIZZLING SKYLINE COVER.

“Philadelphia will always be my home. It’s where I started my career, where I learned to run my business and hone my creative skills. Philadelphia Style was such a big part of my career’s launch. It was kind of surreal to shoot

this cover. While I knew the lay of the land, shooting the skyline for a magazine cover is so different than shooting it for a lifestyle brand, which is what I normally shoot now. It took four hours of waiting for the perfect minute or two of light, and

one click of the camera, for the perfect shot. It was a true ‘hurry up and wait’ situation. It was so important for [publisher] John Colabelli to be there with me. In the early days of Philadelphia Style, John and I would travel to all parts of the country to

shoot these covers. Back then, I wasn’t even the photographer; I was the assistant. Fifteen-plus years later, it’s really cool to be out there with him again, helping with equipment and lighting. It kind of brought it full circle, after all these

years. The city is definitely changing. After spending 20 years in Philadelphia, every time I come back now something has changed. Giant high-rises that were in production are now alive and glowing. It’s awesome to watch.”

LETTER FROM THE EDITOR-IN-CHIEF

With Drexel University President John Fry at the photo shoot for this issue’s “Best of Style” feature.

It’s said that there’s no better way to get to know a city than by walking around. Travelers know this to be true—I’ve talked to countless people who take their exercise routines on the road with them, turning their earlymorning runs into sightseeing outings. But the same principle applies to anyone who has just moved to a new city, too. That was how I got to know my way around Philadelphia when I first moved here more than a decade ago, using nighttime dog walks as an excuse to explore. I usually set out north from my narrow first-floor apartment in Bella Vista, winding along every side street I could find to gawk at window boxes and all manner of stoop decorations. Closer to Washington Square West, unassuming row homes gave way to stately Federal and Georgian-style residences, all

painted shutters and tidy gardens. Those were just two of the reasons I fell in love with Clinton Street on one of my earliest walks, that tree-lined, two-block stretch between Ninth and 10th streets that is somehow blissfully quiet despite being in the heart of the city. It reminds me of those streets in big-budget romantic comedies where the actors finally fall in love. I suppose pretty streets can do that to people. I don’t get to make my nightly rounds around town quite as often as 10 years ago so this issue’s Interiors feature on a Clinton Street home that recently hit the market reminded me of how much I still adore those charming blocks. It’s the same feeling I get when working on our annual “Best of Style” feature each year, rediscovering the city’s best restaurants, nightlife, shops, spas, and

cultural attractions. There’s 14 packed pages of winners—plus six notable personalities who shared their own Philly favorites--to pour over while sitting poolside this summer, along with details on new health and wellness openings in the city and suburbs in our Style and Main Line Style sections. Philadelphia is still in the midst of a retail boom—if you need proof then page through this issue’s “Shop Talk” about the latest names joining the fashion frenzy. Amid so many exciting openings, it’s worth pausing to remember that what’s old can still feel new. Even a quiet street that you haven’t walked on for a while.

Dougherty—for the “Global Fashion Entrepreneurship Symposium.”



LETTER FROM THE PUBLISHER

There has never been a better time to be a Philadelphia resident than right now. Within these last three years, our city has been recognized internationally for welcoming the Pope, hosting the historic Democratic National Convention and, most recently, for the first time since 1936, as the host city for the NFL Draft. On the first night of the draft, Philadelphia set an NFL Draft record, with more than 100,000 fans showing up on the Art Museum steps. It was a great experience for all. On the local front, there are monumental residential and corporate buildings popping up from Old City to Bryn Mawr and every neighborhood in between. To mark our annual Best of Style summer edition, we

were thrilled to feature an iconic city shot across a double-page spread that showcases our evergrowing skyline. With city growth comes a reinvigoration of Philadelphia Style as well. In May, we happily announced our acquisition by Modern Luxury as we were welcomed into a family of 84 titles across 24 cities. What does that mean for our readers? Even more of Philadelphia Style to enjoy. In 2018 we will increase to 10 issues. We will also publish ancillary publications in categories such as home and design, tourism, bridal, and a charity and social datebook. We could not be more excited to see our city and our publications grow together. We are looking forward to bright futures ahead.

...WITHOUT WHOM THIS ISSUE WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN POSSIBLE

ADAM ERACE

?D6C H=:EE

&-&& 8=:HICJI HI# q '&*",(*"'+++

Adam Erace is a native of South Philadelphia who writes about food and travel for publications like Travel + Leisure, Businessweek, Fortune, Eater, and over 50 more. He lives in South Philly with his wife and two Chihuahuamix rescues. For this issue he wrote about the members-only Palizzi Social Club on page 70. Fave fare: “My favorite Italian dish is the proudly inauthentic veal parm. I grew up on it and it’s still the meaning of comfort food for me.” Behind the scenes at Palizzi: ÒChef Joey Baldino makes his spaghetti and crabs just like my mom does! When I ate this dish at Palizzi, I couldn’t believe how much it tasted like my family’s version. It’s remarkable because while Baldino and I are both South Philly natives of ItalianAmerican descent, our families come from different parts of Italy. Yet the flavors here are the same.”

JESSICA TZIKAS Jessica Tzikas is a freelance writer and editor for multiple city-specific publications, from Philadelphia to Florida, who loves to keep up with current local trends and happenings. When she isn’t writing, you can find her exploring nearby towns and spending her weekends escaping to the nearest beach. In this issue, she wrote about summer beauty and top Atlantic City events on pages 177 and 187. Beauty trend you can’t live without? “I can’t resist going for super light hair when the weather warms up. A Bayalage treatment with Rachid at Duross and Langel lasts me throughout the entire season!” Must-try treatment of the summer? “Growing up in Florida, being tan was always important. Adrienne at Baked is the best and her tans don’t mess with my super sensitive skin, plus they make me feel great—and go great with my lighter summer hair.”


JOANN GRECO

REBECCA MCALPIN

JoAnn Greco writes on fascinating people and ideas in design, architecture, urban planning, and the arts from her home in Bella Vista. A frequent contributor to Philadelphia Style, her articles have appeared everywhere from Art & Antiques to The Washington Post. In this edition, Greco explored the Andrew Wyeth Exhibit at Brandywine Conservancy on page 72.

Rebecca is a photographer and Philly native who happily returned home after spending time in Denver, Michigan, and New York. She started her career at small-town newspapers. Since then, she has had the opportunity to photograph gallery owners, high-profile bankers, actors, and this issue’s “Best of Style” personalities on page 110. She has worked with publications including Popular Mechanics, The New York Times, and Worth magazine. She currently lives in Bala Cynwyd with her husband and two sons.

Favorite piece of art? “I’ve written about art for 25 years, so there have been many, many pieces that have impressed me. Often, these have been photographs—I think of urban chroniclers like Weegee, Eugene Atget, and Berenice Abbott who capture the so-called ‘decisive moments’ of life in big cities like Paris and New York. These glimpses of the past have both a familiarity and an exoticness to them, and that’s always an interesting—and impactful— combination.”

About the “Best of Style” shoot: “I really enjoyed seeing parts of the city that I hadn’t visited before, especially Spruce Street Harbor Park. Philadelphia is constantly changing and is not at all like the city of my youth. It’s so fun to see how the city has grown and continues to be an exciting and vibrant place. I’m thrilled to be from Philly and love being back!”

NO REST FOR THE WICKED BROADWAY BABY IDINA MENZEL LETS GO ON HER LATEST WORLD TOUR.

PHOTOGRAPHY BY MIKE WINDLE/GETTY IMAGES

BY SARAH SOWDEN

Before Idina Menzel ever cast a melodic spell on kids around the world with her soaring, infinitely singable ballad/ anthem “Let It Go” from Disney’s Frozen, she was hypnotizing audiences with turns in Broadway blockbusters like Rent and Wicked (in the star-making, Tony-winning role of Elphaba). In between, Menzel has released five studio albums over the course of her 20-year career. The latest, idina, is out just in time for her world tour. “I think Menzel did a really good job not bundling herself into one music genre [on this album] because you can hear pop influences but she still gives that classic sound she is known for,” says DJ Rebekah Maroun, better known as Bex from Today’s 96.5 radio station. “Her voice has so much power and depth behind it—and you’re going to see a lot of cool outfits on this tour, too.” Menzel’s recent set lists have been eclectic mashups of her own original music, the biggest Broadway hits, and even cover songs of Aretha Franklin and the Beatles. Spoiler alert: You will get to sing “Let It Go” at the top of your lungs with thousands of other Frozen fans. July 16, 8 PM, BB&T Pavilion, 1 Harbour Blvd., Camden, NJ, 856-3651300; livenation.com

Scenes from an Italian restaurant: Inside Palizzi Social Club, much of the décor dates back decades (LEFT); cocktails like the Aperol spritz are summer-ready sippers (SHOWN HERE); chef-owner Joey Baldino looked to his mother’s and grandmother’s cookbooks for menu inspiration; leave your iPhone home—Palizzi has a strict nophones policy.

PHOTOGRAPHY BY JASON VARNEY

Were it not for the red neon sign above the frosted glass door, you’d never know Palizzi Social Club wasn’t any other redbrick rowhome in Passyunk Square. Even with the sign, which only emits its vermilion glow Thursdays through Sundays, the place still looks pretty nondescript. That’s how the founders of this old hangout, immigrants from the town of Vasto in Abruzzo, liked it. The Fillipo Palizzi Society (named for the village’s famous painter) was and still is for members only. In 1918 that meant South Philly settlers from Vasto and later, by the time Ernest Mezzaroba was running the place, anyone who could trace their ancestry back to the Boot. Now that Mezzaroba’s nephew, chef Joey Baldino, is in charge, all are welcome to apply. Baldino is South Philly by birth, New Jersey by trade; he owns the beloved Sicilian BYOB, Zeppoli, in Collingswood. Taking over his family’s social club is a chance for him to play to an urban audience—one that on any given night represents a mix of old and new South Philadelphians sipping Negroni milk punches and Tempus Fugit fernet and sodas on multicolored swivel stools at the bar. In the 20-seat dining room, painted a shimmery shark gray, couples and foursomes trade bowls of fritti misti, spaghetti and crabs, tomatoey braised tripe, and other favorites from Baldino’s mother’s and grandmother’s recipe book. As at Zeppoli, the cooking is straightforward, full-flavored, and precise. The best way to get a membership? Keep checking online. This is one club you want to get into. 1408 S. 12th St.; palizzisocial.com

THE WONDER OF WYETH FOR THE 100TH ANNIVERSARY OF ARTIST ANDREW WYETH’S BIRTH, THE BRANDYWINE RIVER MUSEUM OF ART CONSIDERS THE MAN BEHIND THE BRUSH IN A MAJOR EXHIBIT.

All summer long, the Brandywine River Museum of Art celebrates the 100th birthday of Andrew Wyeth by exhibiting more than 100 works, drawn from its collections and from around the country. The youngest son of famed children’s book illustrator N.C. Wyeth, the artist, who died in 2009 and was born in Chadds Ford, has a long association with

the Brandywine Valley and its moody landscapes. Arranged chronologically, the exhibit, on view from June 24 to September 17, begins with watercolors from the 1930s that “will surprise even those familiar with his work,” promises curator Audrey Lewis. “They’re eye-opening in their spontaneity and brilliant colors,” she says.

By the 1940s, we see Wyeth falling under the spell of tempera—also a watersoluble medium but one made a bit heavier by the addition of a glutinous binder such as egg yolk. “Tempera allowed him to work more deliberately and slowly,” explains Lewis. Works from the 1950s and ’60s are “particularly moving,” Lewis says, “as

Wyeth begins to focus on a small African-American community in Chadds Ford. He wanted to know them more deeply, as he often did with individuals and families. For him, familiarity opened his eyes to subtleties.” Galleries exploring Wyeth’s later years include nudes and psychologically and compositionally

complex works that cast a reflective look back on his long career. “I think people will really respond to Goodbye (2008),” says Lewis. “It’s the last painting he finished before he died and includes many of the motifs he returned to again and again in his career.” 1 Hoffman’s Mill Road, Chadds Ford, 610-3882700; brandywine.org

SCENE ONE TO WATCH

SOAP DISH AFTER 15 YEARS ON DAYTIME TV, EMMY-WINNER RISTEN ALDERSON IS GETTING A FRESH START BACK IN PHILLY.

While most of her friends were busy coloring at 6 years old, Kristen Alderson was learning her lines for a lead role on One Life to Live. After a 15-year run with the iconic daytime soap opera, Alderson (who got her start on local variety show The Al Alberts Showcase) decided it was time to wash her hands of soaps for good and return home to Philadelphia. But not before winning an Emmy for a stint on General Hospital. “It was crazy,” she recalls, “I was 20 years old. I wasn’t expecting it at all.” Alderson is now tackling a different role as a Philly realtor with Berkshire Hathaway’s Rosenthal Group. “Working in the city has always been a dream of mine,” she says, “There’s an energy here that makes you want to work hard and be successful.” This new gig also allows her to pursue her first love, singing. At 11 years old she sang her first National Anthem at a sold-out Phillies game—she has since performed at Dodger Stadium, University of Phoenix, and the Linc. Philanthropy was also part of the reason for her to return to Philly. Her connection with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society goes deeper than appearing at charity events and auctioning off soap-opera swag. “My 22-year-old brother Eddie was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma,” she says. Now, she dedicates her free time to fundraising and raising awareness for blood cancer. “My mission is to help others going through the same thing as our family.”

For Chicago, touring is a hard habit to break. “Retire? And do what?” asks Robert Lamm (center). “What’s better than being in a rock band?” The group hasn’t missed a year on the road since 1967; their first show with current tour buddies the Doobie Brothers, (below, with Tom Johnston at center) was in 1973.

ROCKING OUT CHICAGO AND THE DOOBIE BROTHERS TAKE IT TO THE STREETS FOR THE MOST SING-ALONG SETS OF THE SUMMER.

What are your summer plans? Do they involve playing shows for tens of thousands of people at amphitheaters across the US? And have you been doing that kind of thing for 50 years straight? No? Then you must not be a member of the seminal rock band Chicago. “Those 50 years went by rather quickly,” laughs keyboardist/vocalist/songwriter Robert Lamm, who cofounded the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame group in 1967, penning such enduring, sing-along classics as “25 or 6 to 4” and “Saturday in the Park.” Fronted by new lead singer and bassist Jeff Coffey, who sings the old Peter Cetera/Jason Scheff tunes (“Jeff’s a more intense version of his predecessors,” says Lamm), Chicago is joined on the road by old friends the Doobie Brothers, of “Listen to the Music” and “China Grove” fame.

76  PHILLYSTYLEMAG.COM

“We love playing to a crowd and interacting,” says Doobies cofounder/guitarist/vocalist Tom Johnston. “And these outdoor shows have a festive atmosphere— I’m invested in getting people out of their seats and rocking.” Each band has a catalog of songs that’s five decades deep, so will you hear your faves? “The chestnuts are there,” reveals Johnston. “Those four or five songs that we always play. But there are also deep album cuts that we haven’t played in years.” Lamm adds, “It would take us many hours to play all our hits.” With 21 top-10 singles and 36 albums (25 of them certified platinum), he’s not kidding. “We can interchange them and still make two hours of popular songs. It’s a blessing.” July 21, BB&T Pavilion, Camden, NJ; livenation.com

THE BIG SQUEEZE TAKE FRESH-PRESSED JUICES FROM MORNING TO NIGHT WITH A SPLASH OF SPIRITS. BY KRISTIN DETTERLINE

GIN, NO TONIC

The fancy juicer at Davio’s has been working overtime ever since general manager Leo Barbuto decided to amp up the summer cocktail program with all things fresh squeezed. Dubbed the Davio’s D-Tox, this gin-based libation is made with cold-pressed Honey Crisp apples, lemon, and ginger juices and garnished with cucumber, pepper, thyme, and ice cubes infused with local honey. Says Barbuto, “The D-Tox pairs best with seafood and pasta dishes, especially our gnocchi with mushrooms.” 111 S. 17th St., 215-563-4810; davios.com/phl

For a seasonal sip with a kick, try Nectar’s new Blackberry and Thai Basil Smash, made with Glenmorangie Scotch and a sprinkle of lemon zest. Mixologist Christina

Cunningham preps the juice in advance, by mixing, chilling, and straining hand-muddled blackberries and simple syrup.

FOOD FOR THE SOUL MANNA CHAMPION STEVEN KORMAN TALKS ABOUT THE PHILADELPHIA NONPROFIT’S NEW HOME AND MAJOR PLANS TO FEED MORE THAN TWO MILLION PEOPLE IN 2017. BY KRISTIN DETTERLINE

The first thing you might notice while walking through MANNA’s massive new state-of-the-art kitchen is the stickers. Rows and rows of neatly packaged meals are marked with round dots in a rainbow of

primary colors. This seemingly minuscule detail is key to keeping the Philadelphia nonprofit running like a well-oiled machine. MANNA, founded in 1990 to provide food for the city’s HIV/AIDS

population, delivers healthy meals to those living with life-threatening illnesses throughout the Delaware Valley and may be best known for the hugely popular Pie in the Sky pie fundraiser each Thanksgiving.

program has helped people with 72 different diseases last year and now serves as a model for similar organizations. “MANNA feeds those who are dealing with all kinds of illnesses, from breast cancer to colon cancer and AIDS,” says Steven Korman, cochair of MANNA’s advisory board and the lead for their current capital campaign. “We have all types of menus to fit all different types of diseases.” It’s nearly impossible to talk about MANNA without talking about Korman. The Philadelphia real estate developer, who founded Korman Communities, has been championing the nonprofit for more than 16 years, following his own brief but

devastating illness. “A dentist finally diagnosed me with a rare disease that he hadn’t seen a case of in 30 years,” says Korman. “I had a 10-day period of intense pain and I made my deal with God: If I recovered, then I would give back and help as many people as I could.” When he was finally well, Korman walked right into MANNA (then located in Rittenhouse Square), wrote a “very large check,” he says, and never looked back. “People living with AIDS were so brave,” he explains, recalling why he chose MANNA over other local organizations. “They didn’t have any resources.” Thanks to another very large check,

Something is always cooking in this kitchen: In 2016, MANNA delivered roughly one million meals to 3,000 clients. That’s three meals a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year, all planned by dieticians and prepared entirely by volunteers. Each meal packaged contains up to three combinations of colored stickers to ensure that drivers deliver the right food to the right clients. But it’s not just about making sure food arrives in South Philly instead of Swarthmore. The stickers relay critical information about the meals: diabetic, low lactose, high protein, low fiber, to name a few. It’s an approach MANNA refers to as a pharmacy for your diet. Their “food as medicine”

MANNA is behind the widely popular Pie in the Sky fundraiser each Thanksgiving. More than 500 volunteers prepare meals here for the holiday, compared to 125 volunteers the rest of the year.

Korman was one of the driving forces behind MANNA’s new headquarters at 20th and Hamilton Streets. The Art Museum location totals 23,000 square feet and was designed by Spectra-Con’s Rich Hubbert and Stanev Potts Architects. Here, more square footage means one thing: more meals. In 2017, MANNA is on track to jump from

one million to 2.5 million meals a year, serving 2,500 individuals and families at one time. (MANNA also feeds any dependent family members living with those who are sick.) More importantly, the nonprofit is on track to take its program statewide. It’s all part of making sure that everyone has access to food as medicine, says Sue Daugherty,

CEO of MANNA. “I believe our new space on the Parkway gives us a stronger presence in the city, which we need,” says Daugherty, who has been with the organization since 1999. “In order for MANNA to be able to serve more folks, we need more people to know about our impact on the health system. We know our model works.

Keeping people nourished in their homes is saving significant health care costs.” With the new headquarters up and running, Korman is already hard at work on his next project. Details are still emerging, but Korman hopes that by aligning with like-minded individuals from other professions—Jefferson Health President and

CEO Stephen K. Klasko and Project HOME President and Executive Director Sister Mary Scullion among them— that they can collectively answer the most urgent questions about how to help people in need. “I want to tie this whole thing together,” says Korman. “This is my passion. It’s how I plan on spending the rest of my life.” mannapa.org

YOU MAKE MY DREAMS COME TRUE PHILLY’S OWN JOHN OATES OF HALL & OATES DISCUSSES HIS RECENT MEMOIR, CHANGE OF SEASONS.

What made you decide that you wanted to write a book about your life and your experience as a rockstar? I had a series of journals that I kept from 1970 until 1980. I started them in the spring of 1970 when I graduated from college. I didn’t know what I was going to do with my life and I wasn’t working with

86  PHILLYSTYLEMAG.COM

Daryl [Hall] at the time. I had no idea that we were going to be working together. I documented pretty much everything I did for 10 years in these handwritten journals. I figured it was time to share my stories. It’s a well-documented memoir. Describe the process of writing your very first book.

I love writing and reading. I’m an avid reader. I eventually got into a writer’s groove and the process began to flow. Starting out as a young kid in Philadelphia, did you ever see yourself reaching this level of success? No, I never thought about it. It wasn’t anything that I ever wanted or expected.

Fame, success, money, and popularity should not be something that you seek. It should be a byproduct of hard work and dedication. I think that if you do good work, if you’re dedicated and you have determination, the stars will align and things like popularity and money will come naturally. I think that’s something younger generations need

to understand. After 50 years together, what is your relationship with Daryl like these days? We have a lot of similarities and we have a lot of differences. It’s the balance that seems to make this relationship work. It’s more like a brotherhood than a friendship.

BY ADRIENNE GAFFNEY

Jeff Koons, the Pop Artinfluenced provocateur behind balloon-dog sculptures and Old Master reproductions, has always been better received by the general public than by the art world. But now the latter is catching up, following a major retrospective at the Whitney Museum, a prominent new public installation in New York, and, most recently, a gala in his honor at MOCA in LA. But as the conversation shifts around him, Koons remains happily himself at the center, announcing a major commercial collaboration in the form of a new fashion collection for none other than Louis Vuitton. Dubbed “Masters,” Koons’s pieces for the Parisian powerhouse deploy a premise similar to his “Gazing Ball” series, in which he hand-painted reproductions of some of art history’s greatest works and placed a gleaming blue orb at their center. This time, Koons has taken five of the most recognizable paintings in the

history of art—Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, Titian’s Mars, Venus and Cupid, Rubens’s The Tiger Hunt, Fragonard’s Girl with Dog, and Van Gogh’s A Wheatfield with Cypresses—and placed them on purses, totes, scarves, bag charms, and shawls. This is the first time an original Koons has been featured in a fashion collaboration. “What’s wonderful about working with Louis Vuitton is their resources. They [have] the finest in the world,” says the 62-year-old artist. “The first samples come through and it’s like, ‘Wow! That’s better than anything I’ve seen before.’” Each accessory is adorned with the original artist’s last name in glitzy, appliquéd letters, providing a quick lesson in art history and in personal branding before the Instagram era. For his part, Koons signs the works, too: His initials appear as part of the classic Louis Vuitton monogram. King of Prussia Mall, 610-9920392; louisvuitton.com

GG MAULL’S GRETCHEN MAULL BERGER IS TAKING AIM AT THE ACCESSORIES GAME WITH HER CHIC HANDS-FREE HANDBAG DESIGNS. BY KRISTIN DETTERLINE

above from left: Tiger’seye studs and cut-out details add a dash of glam to the Hobohemian ($995) in Golden Gambler; for her patented Rebel Holster handbag, Berger (inset) looked to old-fashioned gun holsters for design inspiration. “It was an alternative to typical hands-free designs,” she says.

92  PHILLYSTYLEMAG.COM

Handbag designer Gretchen Maull Berger’s first love in the world of accessories wasn’t handbags at all. “My parents always tell a story about how when I was 4 years old I refused to wear anything but black patent leather Mary Janes for an entire year,” she says from a sidewalk table at Parc on a windy day in June. So began a career in fashion that took this Bryn Mawr native to Italy, where she earned a master’s degree in shoe and handbag design while working at Missoni, and at major fashion houses in

New York like Oscar de la Renta, Calvin Klein, and Juicy Couture (“One season I designed 450 handbags for Juicy,” she says). All the while, Berger was filing away the design ideas that would form her own label, GG Maull. Launched in 2016, the handbag collection is a contemporary mashup of luxe leather and python and Art Deco details like her signature triplepointed diamond. For fall, Berger is dabbling in laser-cut quilting, moonstone accents, and interchangeable

hardware to turn a shoulder bag into a belt bag in a snap. It’s this marriage of fashion and function that fuels her aesthetic. “That was the whole inspiration for the Rebel Holster,” says Berger, who now has a patent on the four-looks-in-one, dualshoulder-holster design and counts celebs like Charlize Theron among GG Maull fans. “Outside of the traditional crossbody, there aren’t enough options for stylish, hands-free bags.” Boyds, 1818 Chestnut St., 215-564-9000; ggmaull.com

ROMAN HOLIDAY

CLOCKWISE: An eight-point star at the entrance hints at Bulgari’s Roman roots; brand ambassador Lily Aldridge; the store’s interior was crafted from marble and bronze; the new Serpenti watch features interchangeable straps.

What do Bella Hadid and Lily Aldridge have in common? If you guessed supermodels with chiseled cheekbones and matching Victoria’s Secret angel wings, you’re right. What’s more, these brunette beauties are also the newest faces of Bulgari. The storied accessories house, which began as a jewelry shop in Rome in 1884 and now includes everything from watches to leather goods and fragrance, just opened its first store in Pennsylvania at the King of Prussia Mall. “King of Prussia has always been in our thoughts,” says Daniel Patridge, president of Bulgari North America, “but the mall’s new luxury wing was the right opportunity for Bulgari.” The brand’s Roman roots can be felt throughout the new boutique, a gorgeous mix of marble and bronze splashed with satin and crystal chandeliers. But even a setting this dramatic takes a backseat to the iconic collections on display. The Serpenti is perhaps the best known, a snake motif that coils around rings, bracelets, and some of Bulgari’s most stunning high-jewelry necklaces, while the B.Zero1’s mixed-metal pieces are best suited for everyday wear. For summer, King of Prussia is home to two timepiece launches: the reinterpreted Serpenti watch with six different colored straps and the Octo Finissimo Automatic, Bulgari’s latest world-record winning men’s watch for its ultra-thin profile. “The founders of Bulgari are still very involved,” says Paltridge. “There’s a real mix of history and modernity to the brand. It’s quite a magical combination.” King of Prussia Mall, 610-234-3895; bulgari.com

AS TECHNOLOGIES ADVANCED, DRIVERS BEGAN LOOKING TO WATCHMAKERS FOR PIECES THAT MET THEIR NEEDS.

TRACK TIME THIS SEASON, THE BEST OF AUTO-INSPIRED AND RACING WATCHES HIT THE OPEN ROAD WITH SPEED AND STYLE. BY ALDOUS TUCK

Automobile enthusiasts’ tight bond with timepieces dates to the earliest days of motor sports. Drivers would strap big, bulky pocket watches to their wrists to measure timing and speed while maneuvering new race tracks or hitting a straightaway on a dusty back road. But as car and timepiece technologies advanced, drivers began looking to watchmakers for pieces that met their specific needs. Watch brands not only responded to this call but drew from it, with autodesign inspiration informing 1. Baume & Mercier unveiled the Clifton Club Shelby Cobra 1964 ($4,450) at this year’s SIHH in honor of Peter Brock, Ken Miles, Carroll Shelby and the Shelby Racing Team who designed and built the first American car to win its class at La Mans in 1964. The watch features an automatic Valijoux 7750 movement, a polished and satin-finished stainless steel case and a sun satin-finished Daytona blue dial engraved with the piece’s number in a limited-edition of 1,964 pieces. Bernie Robbins Jewelers, 507 New Road, Somers Point, NJ, 609-9274848; baume-et-mercier.com 2. Rolex introduced the first Cosmograph Dayton in 1963 to satisfy the demands of professional drivers. This Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona in 18-carat white gold ($28,800), introduced this year at Baselworld, continues that tradition with its perpetual, selfwinding mechanical chronograph movement powered by its 4130 Manufacture Rolex calibre. The watch has a 72-hour power reserve and is waterproof to 100 meters. Benari Jewelers, 299 Main St., Exton, 610-363-8450; rolex.com

Proudest moment: Whether it is a unique event such as the visit of Pope Francis, or a standing ovation after a subscription concert at the Kimmel, or a side-by-side with young musicians from our city, I am always very proud to be at the helm of this incredible Orchestra, and to be an adopted Philadelphian! Philadelphia is so…: Welcoming! It is actually not too big or too small and a bit like my native city of Montreal, which is one of the reasons why I immediately felt good here. Summer in the city: Jogging along the Schuylkill River Trail. There’s no better way to see the city, get some sun, and stay fit. Performance rituals: Before concerts hold the ring I inherited from Marcel Nézet, my beloved grandfather who passed away in 1997. He protects me always. Style essentials: My favorite store is Barney’s. I always go to The Rittenhouse Spa & Club --Hair by Paul Labrecque for haircuts with Roxy Brennan or Ettore Mastroddi. I like to get massages here, too. Top tables: I go to Parc after concerts; Helm for creative food and cozy atmosphere; and Barclay Prime for the best steak. I also like Wm. Mulherin’s Sons. What’s next: My sixth season (already!) with the Orchestra might be our most exciting.

NET GAINS Sixers sideline reporter MOLLY SULLIVAN goes off-air at the Art Museum to talk beauty essentials, Allen Iverson, and why Philly sports fans are the real deal. Proudest moment: May 12, 2016.

Beyond that, whether it’s with family or a day trip with friends, I always look forward to going down the Shore.

They were actually my first two interviews for Comcast SportsNet in April 2012. What makes Philly great: Best sports fans in the world. They’re loyal, passionate, and have the knowledge to back it all up. The Sixers have also referenced “Philly hard” as their style of basketball, which reflects the city’s toughness. Top tables: My starting five would be Parc, Barclay Prime, Rouge, the lounge section of Aqimero, and Talula’s Garden, with Scarpetta as Rookie of the Year, El Vez as the sixth man, and Assembly to wrap it all up. Local landmark: The Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul. It’s where Father Dennis Gill blessed my marriage to Tommy French, our daughter was baptized, and it continues to be our church.

Marking a departure from its usual home at Villanova University’s Pavilion, Billie Jean King’s Mylan World TeamTennis and the Philadelphia Freedoms team has found a new home for the 2017 season at Saint Joseph’s University’s Hagan Arena. And this year’s line-up looks to be one of the best ever, with American superstar and 32-time

ATP World Tour champ Andy Roddick heading up the roster. “It’s great to be back on the Freedoms’ team and playing for Billie Jean,” says Roddick, who last took part in 2010. The Philadelphia Freedoms were founded in 1974, the year after King famously beat Bobby Riggs in the Battle of the Sexes match. Roddick’s

joined by up-and-comer Sloane Stephens, Fabrice Martin, and returning fan favorite Taylor Townsend. But the fans are sure to be on their feet when legendary player Venus Williams takes the court on July 24 as a visiting marquee player hitting for the Washington Kastles. “The Philadelphia Freedoms and Mylan World TeamTennis are

pro competitions unlike any other,” says Freedoms General Manager Barbara Perry. “Billie Jean King cofounded Mylan WTT with the idea that sports can be a platform for social change. So WTT is about equality—men and women playing together on the same team.” 5600 City Ave., 800298-4200; philadelphia freedoms.com

Net gains: Tennis legend Venus Williams comes out swinging at World TeamTennis. The mixed-gender pro tournament moves to a new home at Saint Joseph’s University this year.

THE IN CROWD

BY MARNI MANKO

While much of the Main Line pack up their Range Rovers and head for the Shore quicker than you can say “Atlantic City Expressway” come June, summer is rife for action on the country-club circuit. Especially since many of today’s suburban clubs are making way for a whole new generation of members. For a bit of Wimbledon right in our own backyard, the Germantown Cricket Club (411 Manheim St., 215-438-9900; germantown cricket.org) and Philadelphia Cricket Club (415 W. Willow Grove Ave., 215-247-6290; philacricket.com) play host to the men’s USTA National Grass Court Championship August 19—28. Players, such as two-time Grand Slam winner Ellis Ferreira and Wade McGuire, hail from all over the nation.

136  PHILLYSTYLEMAG.COM

Germantown, one of the founding members of the United States Lawn Tennis Association (USLTA), has a rich history of hosting championships (Billie Jean King played on the storied courts), and with its decidedly inclusive philosophies, non-members are welcome to sit in a rocking chair under the great sycamore tree and watch upwards of 10 matches going on at the same time. “Tennis started on grass, and although today it’s less prevalent throughout the US, it provides a challenge for even the best top-ranked players, which lends itself to challenging competition,” says tournament director Melanie Hittinger. “The traditions of the game come alive with traditional allwhite clothing, too,” says Jeanne Fields, head of the tennis committee.

Tennis whites, everyone! Germantown Cricket Club (below) was one of the founding members of the United States Lawn Tennis Association.

Elsewhere, Center City club the Union League’s (140 S. Broad St., 215-5636500; unionleague.org) acquisition of the Guard House (342 Righters Mill Road, Gladwyne, 215-5636500; unionleague.com) restaurant was a smart move, giving the League’s roughly 800 members who live on the Main Line someplace to call home, close to home. “The response has been wonderful,” says Union League General Manager Jeff McFadden. “The Guard House, dating back to 1790, was the perfect addition to our amenities and we look forward to maintaining the historic charm of this iconic establishment as The Union League Guard House.” Both Merion Cricket Club (325 Montgomery Ave., Haverford, 610-642-5800; merioncricket.com) and the Cynwyd Club (332 Trevor Lane, Bala Cynwyd, 610-6674524; cynwydclub.com) are creating waves within the membership and neighboring communities, with the addition of, gasp!, pools.

With membership waning for both traditionally oldschool clubs, these Main Line institutions are going to great lengths to make themselves more appealing to the critical younger family membership, causing rifts within the membership in the process. Merion, a National Historic Landmark, has compromised and is demolishing just seven neighboring homes to make room for improvements, while agreeing to keep four designed by renowned architect Walter Durham. The Cynwyd Club has plans for an early July debut of the much-contested addition. “The pool is definitely a game changer for the club,” says Shane Coleman, Cynwyd Club general manager. “There are not a lot of public swimming opportunities in this part of the township and we are seeing a lot of interest from families with children of all ages.” Any way you slice--or lob--it, clubs on the Main Line are abuzz this summer.

Just don’t go in hoping to turn your long, dark tresses into a blonde lob; cut and color aren’t offered here. Founder Alli Webb says Ardmore’s historic downtown is the perfect location for her second Philadelphia-area Drybar (the first opened last fall in Center City). “Plus, Drybar is neighbors with SoulCycle and Sephora--two of our favorites!” she says.

STATE OF MIND FORGET THE WINE: BRING SONOMA HOME TO PHILLY WITH COOL NEW CITY-CENTRIC FURNISHINGS FROM ETHAN ALLEN.

PHOTOGRAPHY COURTESY OF ETHAN ALLEN

BY SHELLY COURTNEY

You won’t find Philadelphia among the five new city-inspired looks in Ethan Allen’s latest collection, but we won’t hold it against the 85-year-old American furniture label. What you will find are of-the-moment pieces to fill your home with, no matter the design scheme. The quintet of looks-—Brooklyn, Buckhead, Capitol Hill, Santa Monica and Sonoma -—perfectly captures today’s interior design trends with a focus on regional tastes. Need proof? Capitol Hill features traditional-meets-modern furnishings with an emphasis on leather chairs and detailed wood, while Brooklyn’s eclectic vibe fuses industrial and farmhouse styles. Buckhead’s European flair and Southern charm is a striking counter to Sonoma’s temperate, relaxed aesthetic. This summer, shore houses in need of a makeover will benefit from the Santa Monica collection. The collection, which includes a custom-made dining table, apothecary jars, rustic black console tables, and a high-back dining bench, combines a breezy beach feel with vintage farmhouse inspiration, perfect for seaside condos in Atlantic City or sprawling mansions overlooking the ocean in Avalon. “Many of the pieces you see here have formal structure, but they also incorporate distressed finishes, natural materials, and a versatile palette,” says Kate Savino, Philadelphia district design manager. “It creates the perfect marriage of country and casual and makes any space really approachable.” King of Prussia Mall, 610491-8850; ethanallen.com

Leave it to the unfailingly chic Starr Osborne to spot a fun summer trend. Her Chestnut Hill store, Tailored Home, is selling hard plastic stemware that masquerades as your finest wedding crystal, but can’t be broken no matter how raucous your barbecue guests get or how determined the family dog is to wreck cocktail hour with his tail. It’s a fitting example of the sophisticated and practical inventory that is the hallmark of Osborne’s store, the latest addition to her growing home empire. Osborne, who got her art history degree from Yale and worked for years at New York auction houses Sotheby’s and Christie’s, cornered the market back in 2004 when she began her home staging company, Tailored Transitions. Author of the 2010 book Home Staging That Works: Sell Your Home in Less Time for More Money, the entrepreneur’s services have evolved to their logical conclusion: from home staging, moving management, and interior design to her retail store, Tailored Home. Near the top of Germantown Avenue, Tailored Home (not far from where Osborne lives in Chestnut Hill) is frequented by curious shoppers and the interior designer’s loyal clientele who stop by to chat, seek design help, and browse brands like Wedgwood, Simon Pearce, Scalamandre, and others. “We don’t see people as one-time buyers,” Osborne explains. “We begin a lifelong conversation about how we can get you to live better and prettier—and find you just what you’re looking for.” 8528 Germantown Ave., 267-297-6502; tailoredtransitions.com

RITZY BUSINESS FOR CRAIG A. SPENCER, THE SKY’S THE LIMIT AT THE RARIFIED PENTHOUSES INSIDE HIS RESIDENCES AT THE RITZ-CARLTON, PHILADELPHIA.

The Residences at The Ritz-Carlton, Philadelphia shows guests just a few of the endless design possibilities for its two penthouses with this 3,000-squarefoot smart-home residence. inset: Craig A. Spencer.

158  PHILLYSTYLEMAG.COM

It’s too bad that William Penn has his gaze permanently fixed towards Northeast Philadelphia from his perch atop City Hall. It’s with good reason—Penn looks out over Fishtown’s Penn Treaty Park, where he signed a peace treaty with the local Leni Lenape Indians—but if he were able to make a quick turn to the right he would be staring at the trio of penthouses at The

Residences at The Ritz-Carlton, Philadelphia. “There’s multiple outdoor decks, very high ceilings, and dramatic views to the north, east, west, and even some to the south,” says Craig A. Spencer, chairman and CEO of The Arden Group. Factor in the entirely open shell—the 46th and 47th floors are all raw space—and you’re looking at one of the most unique residential real

estate opportunities in the city. On a tour of the 47th floor, you walk in seeing a concrete shell and leave imagining outdoor cocktail parties within what feels like arm’s reach of City Hall or waking up to a baby-blue Center City skyline. Gary W. Greenip, vice president of sales and marketing at The Residences, likens the penthouses to world-class works of art. “The residences from the 45th floor

down we consider our Picassos, which are movein ready with their exceptional fits and finishes. However, our three penthouses we consider to be a blank canvas where the future owner will create their own Picasso.” Adds Spencer, “Ten thousand square feet of raw space in a luxury tower just doesn’t exist in Philly.” But Spencer has been making the impossible seem very possible since

The Residences has had a front-row seat to some of the city’s biggest urban projects, including City Hall’s restoration, the $55 million Dilworth Park, and a $14 million face-lift for Love Park.

160  PHILLYSTYLEMAG.COM

The Residences opened in January 2009, in the thick of the global financial crisis. From the start, it was unlike any other residential property in Philadelphia with its 48 floors (the 48th-floor penthouse was sold in May 2016) and 270 finished condos featuring 14 floor plans outfitted with hardwood floors, marblecovered baths, gourmet kitchens, and 180-degree views. The 7,000-squarefoot fitness center rivaled major city gyms, a residents’ lounge and media room with a wraparound terrace overlooked what eventually became Dilworth Park, and the building had major design cred courtesy of Handel Architects, the same firm that designed the World Trade Center Memorial. Its distinction as the only luxury branded building in the city, thanks to its affiliation with The Ritz-Carlton, Philadelphia a few steps away, is what Spencer believes continues to set The Residences apart. That and a diverse mix of residents that ranges

from millennial professionals to suburban empty nesters, who even have their second homes and pied-à-terres here. “You can have anything you want with a phone call,” says Spencer. “If you were going away on vacation for three weeks, you could call the concierge to ask to have your fridge stocked and laundry and newspapers delivered for when you returned.” The sales speak for themselves: Over the last eight years, the building has surpassed nearly all of its initial projections, totaling almost $280 million in sales to date and is estimated to exceed more than $300 million by the end of 2017. “We built The Residences when there hadn’t been a new luxury building in 20 years,” says Spencer of the property’s continued success. “It was the right time, right place, right brand, right location... the stars just aligned.” Those same stars are even easier to see from 47 floors up. 1414 S.

better than a bunch of junk. Don’t clutter things. The biggest mistake people make is having too much stuff.” The couple has built up a loyal book of clients whose design aesthetic matches the high-drama, editeddown sophistication of the Freemans, who can be spotted around town in their signature all-black ensembles. The Freemans deliver a wide variety of looks—traditional, modern, minimalist—but all with a glossy finish. A mix of residential and commercial

work takes them from the city to the suburbs, as well as to clients’ second homes in Florida, New York City, and along the New Jersey coast. Not surprisingly, they say the key to happy designerclient relationships is their ability to understand what clients want and to give them a fully finished environment. “We’re not dictators,” says Renee. “We’re collaborators. We take a client’s vision and execute it properly. It’s their home and they have to love it.”

The Rittenhouse Hotel & Condominiums


The Freemans source lights, like this bubble chandelier, from Rittenhouse Electric: “It’s lighting that really creates atmosphere,” says Renee.

Though the couple attend the big furniture and designs shows, enjoy shopping trips in California and Europe, and keep up with the trends, they don’t follow them—and are proud of it. They have been around long enough to be familiar with the cyclical nature of design trends and steer clients to more timeless choices. Buy well once, so you don’t end up buying often. “I’ve seen so much money misspent,” says Don. Renee adds, “Just because everything is gold doesn’t mean it’s stunning.” With the couple’s predilection for classic style, it’s not a surprise when they

reveal their downtime guilty pleasure is watching old black-and-white movies. Renee confesses recharging by looking at films—think the Myrna Loy-William Powell “Nick and Nora Charles” whodunits, Busby Berkeley’s musical spectacles, and of course, the 1948 comedy Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House. Renee says she likes to study the clothing, jewelry, and furniture. And the Freemans have made a name for themselves by reviving that cinematic glamour for their clients’ homes. 1520 Spruce St., 215-772-9406; freeman interiors.com

another. Maybe it’s the discreet charm of the herringbone-patterned brick sidewalks. When they first encountered Clinton Street 30 years ago, Linda and David Rogers were immediately struck by its

special situation—in the city but not quite of it. Although they were looking for a change of scenery from the Rosemont home in which they had brought up their college-bound children, Linda wasn’t

especially convinced that city living was for her. “Clinton Street was immediately appealing because it was so quiet and tucked away,” she says. It wouldn’t be long before the Rogerses

AGENT PROVOCATEUR THE LATEST MODEL IN ASTON MARTIN’S JAMES BOND-APPROVED DB SERIES MAKES A CAMEO ON THE STREETS OF PHILADELPHIA. BY GEORGE POLGAR

Auto fanatics will instantly recognize Aston Martin’s DB series from its big-screen appearance opposite Daniel Craig in 2015’s Spectre. The DB10 was built exclusively for the 24th installment in the James Bond franchise. Now, the new DB11 is the latest heir to the 67-year-old Aston Martin DB series legend. No need to resort to a

172  PHILLYSTYLEMAG.COM

Bond fantasy now that the DB11 has come raging into the ultra-premium luxury performance coupe race. Even amid the lavish hyper-reality of the super car scene, the new DB11 is a stunning evolution, emphasizing its physicality in bold, expressive ways. From the distinctive front grill to the flawless skin stretched blithely across an

aluminum clam shell hood, Aston Martin hit the mark when it described the trunk of the car as “an elegantly turned rear.” There’s nothing random about the Aston Martin aesthetic, with every aero fold and ripple sculpted by artists under the direction of engineers, measuring airflow and high-speed stability calculations down to

milliseconds. Underneath the skin, an all-new lightweight, bonded aluminum structure gives the DB11 high-velocity confidence and swaggering handling prowess. The interior makes a bold statement by combining the latest infotainment technology with natural materials for an impressive “form follows function” design scheme.

While chatting with Frank Kerbeck about the new DB11 on his showroom floor, the man who arguably knows high-end automobiles better than anyone in Philadelphia opined, “I would say this is one of the most beautiful cars I’ve ever seen.” Drop the mic. 100 Rte. 73 N., Palmyra, NJ, 855-8461500; fckerbeck.com

Off to the races: With a twin turbocharged 5.2-liter V12 engine, the new DB11 is the most powerful DB production model in Aston Martin’s history.

GOLDEN GIRL BOOST YOUR BEACH GAME WITH THE LATEST SKINCARE SERVICES AND BEAUTY TREATMENTS. BY JESSICA TZIKAS

There’s a whole new set of beauty rules once the temperature warms up: highlights without frying your locks, bronzing sans sun damage, staying sweat-proof after long days in the heat. Accomplishing all of this, and more, is possible, and Philly beauty experts tell us how. LASER FOCUS

Shorts, bikinis, sundresses: The summer uniform often calls for lots of skin. That means shaving is back in your daily routine. Tired of the process or the after-shave nicks? Opt for laser hair removal. “The average woman spends 72 days shaving her legs in her lifetime,” says Jennifer Miller, director of marketing at 3000BC Spa (8439 Germantown Ave.; 3000bcspa.com). “So it’s no wonder laser hair removal is so popular.” And 3000BC takes it a step further, offering SyneronCandela laser technology, a totally pain-free process that works on all skin types in just six treatments. ON-DEMAND BEAUTY

Laser hair removal, cryotherapy sessions, and anti-perspiration treatments are the newest ways to streamline summer beauty routines.

As the season changes, your skincare routine needs to change, too. But making the switch isn’t always easy. That’s where ManeStreem (manestreem.com) comes in. With the touch of an app, this on-demand service brings beauty experts right

Contouring just your face is so last summer—this year, it’s all about contouring your whole body. “We’ve always done light contouring with our tans,

but after attending a demo by Katie Quinn (who tanned the Victoria’s Secret runway show), we’ve been focusing on it more,” says Adrienne Volpetti, owner of Baked (740 S.

We want smooth and sleek hair, but in warmer weather, we often get frizz and damage. A Keratin treatment from Salon Vanity (1701 Walnut St.; salonvanity.com) is the ultimate solution. “The Keratin treatment offers many perks [like] reducing frizz, repelling humidity, improving the

ATLANTIC CITY WHAT ’S NEW BACK IN ACTION NEW RESTAURANTS AND NIGHTLIFE AND MULTIMILLION-DOLLAR RENOVATIONS AT ATLANTIC CITY’S TOP CASINO HOTELS ARE KEEPING GUESTS ENTERTAINED BEYOND THE GAMING TABLES. BY JESSICA TZIKAS

TOP TABLES Inspired by his childhood, Iron Chef Michael Symon opened Angeline, an Italian-American restaurant inside the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa (1 Borgata Way; theborgata.com), just before Memorial Day. Creating the feeling of a Sunday dinner with the family, the menu is full of comfort foods like Mom’s Meatballs and linguine and clams with pancetta, plus healthier options, such as swordfish prepared on a wood-fired grill—all served in a homey atmosphere, lovingly described by Symon (and designed by his wife) as “a space that gives off the same warm, cozy feeling [as my family table].” Ask for extra napkins. Jose Garces is back in AC for a second run with a trio of new concepts at Tropicana (2801 Pacific Ave.; tropicana.net). Okatshe offers sushi, small plates, yakitori, and ramen, along with 50 types of sake. At Olón, Garces gets back to his Ecuadorian roots with a 43-seat ceviche bar, five kinds of empanadas, and woodfired Wagyu skirt steak. The 60-seat Bar Olón is located between the two dining rooms and offers a beer-centric bar menu and laid-back beach vibe. A shore staple for more than two decades, the Italian restaurant Girasole (3108 Pacific Ave., 609-345-5554; girasoleac.com) marks its 25th anniversary in

Favorite Philly Chef WITH S. PELLEGRINO THE PREMIER WATER BRAND INTERVIEWS TOP CHEFS OF THE SEASON

Jose Garces

CHEF/CHAIRMAN OF GARCES

Q: Why did you pick Philadelphia to house all of your wonderful eateries? JOSE GARCES: “Philadelphia picked me — it was love at first sight! After living in NYC from 1996 until 2000, I had an opportunity to come work in Philadelphia with my chef mentor, Douglas Rodriguez, and Stephen Starr. After opening two restaurants with Starr, I quickly gained a following and loyal guests. Over the years, it’s been great to see the city of Philadelphia and its food scene evolve. I’m proud to have been able to contribute to what has become a true culinary destination.”

Stephanie Reitano

EXECUTIVE CHEF/OWNER, CAPOFITTO AND CAPOGIRO

Q: What was the most important lesson you learned while cooking in Naples? STEPHANIE REITANO: “It‘s not really a lesson, but a change in my food world view. I value ingredients above all else, but the Napoletani take it to a different level. 50 Kalo, who served over 400 pizzas at lunch and over 700 at dinner, had two small refrigerators. One single door and one reach in. Mozzarella, basil, provola, sheep ricotta, cured meats and anything perishable was delivered that morning. Basil came with the roots attached and the mozzarella was still warm. Your average citizen in Naples could recognize the quality and the understood the difference. Pizza is not just pizza. I subscribe to the same “no short cuts” view to obtain this same product here in Philadelphia.“

Francisco Ramirez

EXECUTIVE CHEF AT TREDICI ENOTECA

Q: What is your favorite dish to cook this summer? FRANCISCO RAMIREZ: “Tredici’s Crab pasta--no words do the dish justice! Jonah crab and spaghetti with bursts of heirloom cherry tomatoes, garlic, and toasted breadcrumbs. It pairs perfectly with a delicious glass of white wine in the summer. This is definitely my favorite way to go.”

comedian brings his brash humor to AC on July 22. (Pro tip: Order a Scotch for the show.) Stand-up comedian Sebastian Maniscalco hit the stage in Atlantic City this past January, and due to overwhelming demand, he’s back again, July 6–8 at the Borgata, as part of his Why Would You Do That? tour. His comedy is outspoken—he is known for saying what we’re all thinking—and he has gained popularity since working with the likes of Vince Vaughn and Jerry Seinfeld. If you come for the shows but stay for the food, Tropicana offers a taste of both this August. On the 21st, savor bites from Tropicana’s favorite bars and restaurants

during the 10th annual Taste of the Quarter festival. This familyfriendly event includes plates from hot spots like Carmine’s, The Palm, Cuba Libre, and others. There’s tons to do on land, of course, but on August 23, it’s all about the air. Celebrating its 15th year, the Atlantic City Airshow (airshow. acchamber.com) is a free event open to the public, featuring the US Air Force Thunderbirds, the US Army Golden Knights Parachute Team, and a US Navy F-18 Super Hornet. Watch them soar through the sky and perform difficult aerial maneuvers—all from the beautiful beaches and boardwalk of Atlantic City.
