A G-TOWN DIVIDED A group meant to bring Germantown residents together is driving them apart. By Holly Otterbein

G

ermantown is haunted — not by spirits, but by the specter of years of insider politics, manipulation and division that final­ ly culminated in 2010 in the dismantling of the Germantown Settlement community development corporation. Under the leadership of Emanuel Freeman, whom his own accoun­ tant later likened to dictator Robert Mugabe, the housing and social service agency defaulted on millions in bank and government loans, had $2 million in tax liens placed against it, and was found to be mis­ sing or misappropriating $1 million. The agency left the community in the dark about its plans, let prized properties in Germantown fall into disrepair, and became the target of a federal probe. Despite all this, the organization continued to receive help (and Freeman continued to drive a Mercedes­Benz), including mil­ lions more in public funds, largely thanks to politicians such as Councilwoman Donna Reed Miller and former Mayor John Street. Finally, though, at the end of 2010, a bankruptcy judge ordered the agency shut down, adding that letting Freeman continue about his business would be like “leaving a fox in a hen house.” Vilified as Freeman became to much of Germantown, residents also blamed themselves for being too fractured as a community: In meetings during the past few years, they vowed to band together

and fight off ruthless developers in the future. Germantown Settlement’s end seemed to be the start of the community’s rebirth. But now, a controversial development plan is threatening to unravel that unity — and, some say, causing the community to make the same old mistakes that landed it in the Germantown Settlement mess. Achieving unity in Germantown is inherently difficult. In a di­ verse city, the area is uniquely diverse: “It’s so diverse that I almost liken it to America” itself, says community member Malik Boyd. But more than two years ago, in the wake of the Germantown Settlement revelations, various neighborhood activ­ ists created a group called Germantown Community Connection to create a uni­ fied voice. “We said, ‘We’re not going to do development like we did in the past,’” says longtime activist and co­founder Betty Turner. “You can’t talk to the community after the fact anymore.” Members from more than 100 neighborhood civic groups, busi­ nesses, families and faith­based organizations all signed on and met under one tent at its monthly meetings. An arts district was planned. A federal agency designated the neighborhood as one of Greater Philadelphia’s few “Classic Towns,” a classification meant to draw in history­minded tourists. Then came the supermarket fiasco. In March, developer Pat Burns abruptly closed his Fresh Grocer, located at Chelten and Pulaski av­ enues and open for about five years. Then — only after

Are the same old mistakes being made again?

[ a million stories ]

WhO GIveS a Frack? last month, members of Congress from New york, Maryland and Massachusetts demanded an investigation of the natural gas industry following a New York Times report uncovering evidence that drillers are inflating projected reserves. So what were Pennsylvania’s elected officials doing? Three western Pennsylvania congressmen were writing a letter to President Barack Obama asking for more drilling with less oversight in the Marcellus Shale. While not joining the call for more drilling, Philly’s representatives have been far less active than New york’s in defending the city’s drinking water supply, which drilling upriver could endanger. Rep. Allyson Schwartz’s spokesperson wrote that the Delaware River Basin Commission “has yet to determine how to proceed … currently, there are no threats from hydrofracking to the Philadelphia water supply.” Rep. Chaka Fattah’s spokesperson wrote that the congressman was busy “protecting the Environmental Protection Agency from attacks on its regulatory role.” But he went on to stress that “if the state refuses to protect the water supply then … the EPA must.” Sen. Bob Casey did introduce legislation that would require companies to reveal what chemicals they use to frack (that’s right: they are not already required to do so). And Congressman Bob Brady, according to a spokesperson, is the only Pennsylvanian to sign on as a co-sponsor of the House version of the bill, the Fracturing responsibility and awareness of Chemicals act of 2011. When did he sign on as a co-sponsor? last week — after City Paper contacted his office.

Republican Mike Fitzpatrick, who represents a sliver of far Northeast Philly, did not respond to requests for comment.

SNOOZING

SuSpect thy NeIGhbOr Are we actually the City of Brotherly distrust? The other day the Public Health Management Corporation released an analysis of the data from its 2010 Southeastern Pennsylvania Household Health Survey. While perusing the data, a set of statistics caught our eye. To wit: More than one-third of young adults 18 to 29 has feelings of distrust of their neighbors (34.5 percent). More than half of black young adults (53.1 percent) and latino young adults (51.2 percent) have feelings of distrust of their neighbors, compared with a third of Asian young adults (33.7 percent) and nearly a quarter of white young adults (22.5 percent). That’s a lot of suspicion floating around out there in the fivecounty region surveyed last year. Or is it? Alas, when asked if there were any comparable statistics from other areas, PHMC’s Nicole Dreisbach responded that she knew of none. Charles C. Branas, associate professor of epidemiology at Penn, is working on a study that measures exposure to violence in Philly based on where people spend their time. “The social and physical attributes of communities have profound implications for health,” he and co-author Douglas J. Wiebe write. High levels of neighborly distrust would seem to be right up his alley. “Interesting,” noted Branas when he saw the data. “this is relevant to our research but I don’t have a lot to add. One thing to consider is that distrust maybe affects poor health but also that poor health maybe affects distrust.” Either way, it’s unfortunate. —theresa everline

“Old Man & Cop”

➤ WAA WAA WAA W-zzzzz. WAA WAA W-zzzzz. Whoops! Sorry, Pennsylvania, Man Overboard! is pounding away on the ol’ Frackalarm’s “snooze” button — but it keeps waking me up again. This weekend, our state was the subject of rare national media attention for both of the only two things we ever seem to get national media attention for: our dirty, campaign-contribution-limit-lacking politics and our dirty, regulation-and-taxation-lacking natural gas industry — all in one story! This bargain of embarrassment came thanks to public radio show This American Life, which featured a full hour of stories on Pennsylvania’s Marcellus Shale gas industry, including a long segment about University of Pittsburgh professor Dan Volz, who felt compelled to resign after vocalizing early warnings about the potential environmental impacts of hydraulic fracturing in our state. Volz, who says he was openly warned by university officials to hold back on remarks that could anger the gas industry, was compared to Penn State scientist Terry Engelder, whose work championing natural gas drilling as an economic windfall for Pennsylvania was paid for (in part) by natural gas companies and wholeheartedly supported by officials at industry-dependent Penn State. WAA WAA WAA W-zzzzz. Sorry again. That got me thinking of a front-page New York Times story from about two weeks ago that somehow seemed to drift quietly over Pennsylvania despite its implications that the entire Marcellus Shale “boom” is a kind of Ponzi scheme that excites much investment, results in many wells, waste and ruined water supplies and such — but produces little gas, in the end, and little lasting wealth. A Ponzi scheme always needs new customers. Which reminds me of the recent hullabaloo from gas companies about yet another shale — the “Utica” shale, even deeper than the Marcellus. WAA WAA WAA W-zzzzz. By the way, in case you missed it, The Great Sentence — the claim, that is, by the Marcellus Shale gas industry that … let me get it just right here … there have been “no confirmed cases of negative groundwater impacts from hydraulic fracturing” — has been directly contradicted again (besides, that is, the case of Dimock, Pa., which had to have its water replaced after drilling there), this time by Duke University researchers who reported “systemic evidence” of a link between Marcellus Shale drilling and methane contamination of drinking water in Northeast Pennsylvania. WAA WAA WAA W-zzzzz. There we go, Pennsylvania, I turned the snooze off: Wake up or go back to sleep as you please.

 A G-Town Divided <<< continued from page 6

community members pushed him to reveal his plans for the site — he announced he would erect a Save-A-lot grocery and a Dollar Tree in its place. The news incensed many residents, who argued that Save-A-lot stores don’t provide enough fresh food, and the neighborhood doesn’t needed another dollar store. They were also furious that Burns had kept community members out of the loop. What’s more, it became clear that Burns was someone (like Freeman) who seemed to know how to get strings pulled at the top. Since 2006, he’s obtained numerous public dollars to finance his plan for a supermarket at Chelten and Pulaski. He received tax forgiveness for about $166,000 at the site. He got $800,000 in government loans and grants to build Fresh Grocer in order to “provide families with increased access to healthy fresh foods” — only to suddenly close it a few years later. Now he’s set to get $3 million in state Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program (RACP) funds for his Save-A-lot and Dollar Tree project — and, City Paper found out this week, the Corbett administration is currently considering another RACP grant for $1 million. Burns likes certain officials back: He’s donated to politicians such as state Rep. Dwight Evans and state Sen. Anthony Williams. The fact that politicians had rolled out the green carpet for Burns’ project inspired residents to action. Several community groups, including members of Germantown Community Connection, amassed more than a thousand of signatures against it and sent letters to state and local representatives, demanding that they withhold funds from Burns. At Chelten and Pulaski, they have been protesting against the project for weeks. At an April Germantown Community Connection meeting, members voted unanimously to oppose the project. Suddenly, Germantown Community Connection had been thrust into its first big fight.

A few leaders of Germantown Community Connection — including Turner, lawyer Irv Ackelsberg, urban planner David Hamme, and Boyd, the group’s secretary — cornered Burns and, as they tell it, forced him into a June meeting with them. Afterward, they announced on their website they had made an agreement: Though Burns wouldn’t stop the Save-A-lot and Dollar Tree, he’d rent space in his plaza to a food co-op headed by Weaver’s Way — provided the neighborhood raise $300,000 by October. Instead of being met with cheers, the group leaders who had talked with Burns were publicly derided by residents, many of them their own members and friends. Donna uetwiller, who’s attended the group’s meetings, claims that the Germantown Community Connection’s rank and file “never gave permission to them to negotiate” and thinks it’s impossible to raise $300,000 in that time period. yvonne Haskins, a Germantown Community Connection member, says, “They met behind closed doors. Emanuel Freeman used to meet behind closed doors.” Ed Feldman, host of G-town Radio’s Morning Feed, likened the group to “pigs in the farmer’s clothing.” In the time between their June discussion with Burns and the next group meeting, which is set for this week, rumors swirled, including that Boyd and Ackelsberg, who have both run for public office, had their own political futures in mind (both deny this). Germantown Community Connection leaders say this is all a big misunderstanding fueled by the neighborhood’s bad memories. It’s a “new day,” says Boyd, and it would be foolish to not speak with Burns. Some group leaders suggest that their critics tend to be affluent. As Turner puts it, “Even though most people showing up to meetings don’t shop” at a nearby Save-A-lot, “a lot

of people in Germantown do.” No matter whose side you’re on, it’s hard to deny that Germantown unity is taking a beating. last week, for instance, seven organizations — including civic and business groups, a developer and a CDC — opted to take a different route and appeal with the city’s Zoning Board of Adjustments, arguing that Burns falsely claimed on a zoning permit that the Dollar Tree was a “grocery store” — because variety stores, they point out, are barred in that part of Germantown by city law. (Carl Primavera, Burns’ attorney, argues that the Dollar Tree is a grocery store because it offers food and “other products found in grocery stores.”) When Haskins, the groups’ lawyer, asked Germantown Community Connection to join her in the complaint, the coalition declined. But group leaders say it’s because they simply see this as a poor legal strategy. The rift, says Boyd, is the result of a “community being hurt for so long, and when you’re hurt, you tend to react strongly to anything similar to the source of that pain.” He adds, “The big question is, when all this is over, are we willing to come together?” (holly.otterbein@citypaper.net)

The other is Bassetts â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and Bassetts is older.â&#x20AC;? The company might have been first on the local ice cream scene â&#x20AC;&#x201D; showing up the year the Civil War started â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but that didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t last long. By the turn of the last century, Philadelphia was the ice cream capital of America, with

Bassetts facing competition from Breyers, Abbotts, Dolly Madison, Suppleeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and dozens of other brands. They are all now either defunct or made differently elsewhere. Bassetts is the last ice cream brand standing in Philly and the first in the country to mark a 150-year anniversary, which happens this Saturday with a celebration at Reading Terminal Market. The company still makes an authentic Philly-style vanilla with specks of vanilla bean. It carries on with old-fashioned flavors like rum raisin, egg nog and Champagne (sorbet). Their Reading Terminal stand didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t offer cones until 1970, 66 years after their invention. Sundaes came on permanently in the early â&#x20AC;&#x2122;90s, but currently account for less than 10 percent of sales to Bassettsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; consumers, clearly a tradition-loving bunch. Banana splits

have never been an option and likely never will be. What accounts for this longevity? Simply put, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all in the cold stuff. Bassetts stands out because it â&#x20AC;&#x153;continues the tradition of quality ice-cream-making that once distinguished Philadelphia,â&#x20AC;? according to Brown. That quality carries through to â&#x20AC;&#x153;every single ingredient. The cherries in their cherry vanilla, for instance, are big, super-ripe and delicious.â&#x20AC;? James Beard Award-winning GQ food critic and former Philadelphia resident Alan Richman once called Bassetts â&#x20AC;&#x153;the only commercial ice cream worth eating.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I still think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wonderful,â&#x20AC;? he enthuses, â&#x20AC;&#x153;up there among the best foods you can get in Philly.â&#x20AC;?

0OaaSbbaabO`bSROa a summer business for a Salem, N.J., schoolteacher with some dairy cows and a mule to pull the crank on his backyard ice-cream-making machine. The first of a number of Bassetts named lewis, he sold the results at several Philly locations before setting up behind the marble counter in 1893 in the thenbrand-new Reading Terminal Market. lewisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; son, also named lewis, died young, but in a move unusual for the time, his wife ran the stand until her son, lewis lafayette Jr. (aka l.l. Jr.), was old enough to take over. He is the person current family members credit with perfecting the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all-natural base, as well as many of its best-loved and wackiest flavors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He used to wander the aisles of the market for ingredients,â&#x20AC;? recalls his daughter Ann, resulting in the short-lived kiwi, yellow tomato, papaya and borscht (to wow a visiting Nikita Khrushchev). Ann says her father

created Beckerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beloved Irish coffee flavor as a peace offering after a fight with her whiskey-loving mother. Ann came into the business in 1974, and within two volatile years â&#x20AC;&#x201D; â&#x20AC;&#x153;I quit almost as many times as my father fired me,â&#x20AC;? she says â&#x20AC;&#x201D; became president. She expanded Bassettsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; restaurant and scoop shop business and packed Bassetts in pints for the first time. But her plans to expand the brand westward literally blew up: Covers on pints popped off when trucks got to high-altitude Colorado. Today, more than half of Bassetts is still sold within a 50-mile radius of Center City Philadelphia. The company has had its share of dips, so to speak. Shortly after Annâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s son, Michael Strange, took over, making him the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fifth-generation successor on the wholesale side, two of its biggest distributors, representing almost 80 percent of its business, went under.

you hear most often is â&#x20AC;&#x153;creamy.â&#x20AC;? like Haagen-Dazs and Ben & Jerryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, Bassetts is high in butterfat (it has 16.5 percent, or pretty much the max). But Bassetts has more air than its national super-premium competitors. In fact, Bassetts contains more than twice the air as HaagenDazs, which is therefore denser. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some people say that heavier ice cream is always better. Wrong!â&#x20AC;? says Roger Bassett, a fifth-generation family member who manages the Reading Terminal stand. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I remember my grandfather used to tell us, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t push down too hard when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re packing. youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll push the life out of it.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? In fact, Arun Kilara of Penn State universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s famous one-week ice-cream-making course once told the Inquirer that extra air is the reason that â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bassetts instantly hits the tongue and starts to melt, while releasing a very fresh, creamy taste.â&#x20AC;? Some have been savoring that taste for decades, such as Bob Becker, 88, who was introduced to the brand on boyhood train trips to Philadelphia from his familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s New york home, a perk of his fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s job with the Reading Railroad. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At that time a big dish of ice cream, with two scoops, was 12 cents,â&#x20AC;? Becker says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and the gentlemen behind the counter would sling them down the marble counter right to where you were sitting like barkeeps used to do with pints of beer.â&#x20AC;? Having moved here in the 1940s, Becker is now the three-times-a-week regular known as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Irish Coffee Bobâ&#x20AC;? at the Bassetts stand because of his flavor preference, made with real Jameson Whiskey. But much to Beckerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chagrin, the Irish coffee flavor has just gone on indefinite hiatus. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They tell me Guatemalan ripple [a chocolate-coffee flavor] is similar,â&#x20AC;? he says, without conviction.

The companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s other new flavors â&#x20AC;&#x201D; green tea, pomegranate blueberry crunch and mango â&#x20AC;&#x201D; were created for Bassettsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; fast-growing Chinese export business. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The fact that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s oldest commercial ice-creammaker is actually a bigger selling point there than it is here,â&#x20AC;? Michael says. But new flavors can mean the end of not-as-popular old ones, about which Michael gets endless grief. Judging by complaints, choco orange flake (orange ice cream with chocolate flakes) is the mostmissed flavor, although, Michael says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever had a flavor that wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t someoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s favorite.â&#x20AC;? As the president and CEO of a small company (at its summer peak, Bassetts employs only about 20), Michael is where the buck stops in any crisis, which, in his business, usually involves melting ice cream. The companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s modest â&#x20AC;&#x2122;70s-era paneled office on Chestnut Street is filled with memorabilia, which Michael, 52, delights in showing off, including a recently acquired Bassetts milk jug bearing a four-digit phone number. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Before I got this I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even know we ever sold milk,â&#x20AC;? he says. The company might be notable for its long history, but Roger Bassett points out the here-and-now joys of being in the ice cream business: â&#x20AC;&#x153;People rarely walk up to an ice cream counter frowning. you get a lot of positive feedback. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait to get in here every day.â&#x20AC;? (cwyman@citypaper.net)

By Michael McGettigan | Then: “Riding behind a wave of concern for fitness, these businesses are packed at lunchtime with people wielding giant tongs and scoops, dishing up individualized blends of food,” wrote McGettigan of “weigh-and-pay” salad bars, which were a brand-new fixation in the late ’80s. Now: “You want interactive? Forget portable media — try the total immersion of an hour down at the Food Distribution Center,” says McGettigan, now owner of Trophy Bikes in University City.

The critic, however, is quick to point out that food-scene discourse has ballooned in the digital age. “People read what I do and care about it, but there are so many other voices out there now,” says LaBan. “There is no one person anymore that is the all-telling voice and influence on people.” Nov. 22, 2007 ➤ Caffeine Rush: Meet

By Drew Lazor | Then: Acquired by Philly developer Joe Grasso in 2007, Saxbys Coffee made a splash when it trumpeted its intentions to grow large enough on a national level (2,000-plus locations) to compete with Starbucks. At the time, Saxbys had 30 locations in 13 states. Now: There are currently six franchises in Philly, 15 in the Philadelphia region and 33 nationwide. “This very brutal recession helped us realize that quality matters so much more than quantity,” says Saxbys CEO Nick Bayer.

icepack By A.D. Amorosi

➤ Without sounding too much like the

protagonist of LCD Soundsystem’s “Losing My Edge” — you know, the jaded guy who made every scene known to music-kind — I can remember going to U2’s Bijou Café show of March 1981 as an underage attendee and loving it. Icepack photographer Scott Weiner does, too, and has the snaps to show for it. Check Icepack Illustrated (citypaper. net/criticalmass) on July 14 for those. WMGK’s Cyndy Drue remembers, too; she interviewed Bono for her then-KYW-TV program The Rock n’ Roll Show. “He was cute and young, close to my age, and very self-assured,” says Drue now about the curiously wide-eyed frontman who hitched a ride with the radio jock to the Bijou for his firstever Philly show. “I watched them go from being a new, unknown band that played for 50 people at the Bijou to a well-known band that played the biggest venues in the world in a relatively short time.” Drue recently re-aired that interview during Larry Kane’s Voice of Reason on CN8. U2 will celebrate the 30-year anniversary of that gig (more or less) July 14 at the Linc. ➤ After delays in construction and getting the cream filled in all of its pourers, Milkboy at 11th and Chestnut will be ready to go (the first-floor bar, at least) on Aug. 1. “We’re not called Milkboy Coffee,” says Milkboss Tommy Joyner of the Center City bar/live venue that follows in his suburban shop’s footsteps. “But as a nod to our history as a coffeehouse, we will still do coffee service starting at 6 a.m.” The secondfloor live venue, booked by Bryan Dilworth, will start in September with its first shows acting as after-parties to the Popped! fest: Sept. 23 is Yuck and Sept. 24 is Black Landlord. Meanwhile, the soon-to-open Twisted Tail live blues-and-charcoal-grilled stop (with chef Michael Stevenson) on Headhouse Square just got a new façade and signage. ➤ Azuka Theatre artistic director Kevin Glaccum just named Natalie Diener as Azuka’s new general manager. If that name sounds familiar it’s because she plans weddings in Philly, was production and company manager for the Philadelphia Shakespeare Fest and was marketing director for — huh — City Paper. ➤ It’s a night of local spazz and soul at the Troc’s Balcony July 16 when the R&B-hop of Wyldlife and the skanky synth-pop of Snakes Say Hisss join forces. The Snakes release their messy, dancey debut CD, Right Behind You, next week on the Famous Class label. ➤ Roving DJ Lee Jones is thisclose to moving his Sundae party’s daytime event from Shampoo to Table 31 at the Comcast Building. “When it finally happens I’m bringing in four DJs from around the planet to kick off our new home,” says Jones.

Gut CheCk An impetuous playwright takes a radical approach to independent Philly theater. By Bruce Walsh

J

ohn Rosenberg nervously peels blue gaff tape off the floor of the Papermill Theater, but his gaze never strays from the action in front of him. On stage, Sebastian Cummings recites a crucial monologue in Rosenberg’s latest play, Queen of All Weapons: The character has been pushed to the brink, feeling the blows of a crushing indignity. Rosenberg’s body convulses with each delicate transition in the text. A moment later, a piece of tape flies through the air, hitting Cummings in the leg. The actor pauses briefly to look at the wad at his feet, but then launches into the remainder of his monologue with a new sense of purpose and fury. The tactic was impulsive and crude — but effective. And that, you might say, is this writer/director’s mantra in both theater and life: impulsive and crude — but, above all, effective. Rosenberg’s heroes, such as John Cassavetes and Charles Bukowski, turned crass impudence into sublime poetry (and fought tooth and nail to get their voices heard). It’s a style Rosenberg emulated in San Francisco, where he co-founded Sleepwalkers Theatre, a Bay Area indie forerunner. “There’s a lack of pretension that drew me to John — both personally and in the writing,” says Tore Ingersoll-Thorp, a

Sleepwalkers co-founder. “He doesn’t put on airs, even though he is a highly skilled writer. I think he wants to be perceived in the way he writes: uncomplicated and unadorned. Even in his marketing, his style is intentionally messy and unrefined.” But independent theater is a different game in Philly, where even the smallest companies often model themselves on regional theaters, put a greater emphasis on production values and strictly follow Equity rules (read: no throwing gaff tape at actors). Philadelphia is a more conservative artistic community than San Francisco, but Rosenberg is hoping we’re ready for a new, raw, fromthe-gut independent voice. “Self-producing just always made more sense to me,” says Rosenberg, sitting on the edge of a chair just outside the rehearsal. “I don’t think I could do it the other way: I mean, you’re supposed to write scripts and send them out and hope somebody you’ve never met will produce your shit? unless your shit’s incredible, you just become a bitter dick.” Since landing in Philly a little over a year and a half ago, Rosenberg has been working at breakneck pace. A friend gave him space in an old paper mill near Kensington and lehigh, and he has already converted the lower level into a 50-seat theater. He has also produced two of his own works in that time, designing the sets and lighting for both. This month Rosenberg will find out just how ready Philly is for

[ the juxtaposition of eros and social commentary ] ➤ world/fusion

The only people who care about county lines are sheriffs and folk singers. And, judging by the old-school, stripped-down Wit’s End (Domino), Cass McCombs is one of the two. When he’s not letting his breathy vocals echo off quarry walls, he’s strumming mellow, amber-tinted acoustic melodies and, sometimes, thumbing his guitar for percussion. And yeah, there’s a county line or two in there somewhere. The album came out way back in April; McCombs plays Johnny Brenda’s this Sunday (July 17, johnnybrendas.com).

Slapped across the cover of red Baraat’s Bootleg Bhangra (Sinj) like an afterthought, “lIVE” is the most important part of the story. Forget those other world fusion groups who can’t bring it outside the studio — this drum ’n’ brass hybrid works flawlessly, tightly and precisely. The drum is the North Indian dhol, worn and played on both ends by founder Sunny Jain who has gathered about him a big, hyperfunky brass band. The complex Indian rhythms played by a wall of brass may well trigger flashbacks to Balkan weddings, as well. Hot stuff complete with a little freestyle MCing here and there, calling out to the dancers. —Mary armstrong

➤ rock It’s a shame long Beach noodly noisemakers Crystal antlers have saddled themselves with the blandest, Pitchforkiest name they could muster, because the new self-released Two-Way Mirror is a nice slice of psych/garage rock. They’re at their best when the percussion’s clacking, the synths are building a wall and Jonny Bell’s just belting his head off. Nothing crystal about it. How about —Patrick rapa just antlers made of antlers?

➤ THE ALLEGORICAL REPRESENTATION

of the nude in art can be confusing. That’s why Sir Kenneth Clark wrote a book about it. Blame it on the Greeks and on our consequent European heritage — everyone understands why we like looking at attractive naked people, but would clothing get in the way of representing “free speech” or “sacred burden”? Only if what you really want to see is a lot of well-defined muscles. Sometimes it feels like JD Dragan is asking us to process too many ideas in one picture. The juxtaposition of eros and social commentary in his show at AxD Gallery can be awkward and unconvincing, but Dragan shouldn’t be casually dismissed. He is a skilled photographer, a white man who has photographed nude black men for three decades, often in classic, bodybuilder-style calendar pictures. Most of the images in this show, however, incorporate props such as shiny chains, guns, swords and nooses. The representation of domination and subjugation can be ambiguous. Are these depicted roles actually erotic elements in themselves? Kara Walker, a contemporary artist who blends political commentary and sex, shares a bit of conceptual bias with Dragan. The deliberately crude execution of Walker’s silhouette compositions is far from Dragan’s suaveness, but the union of lascivious and sadistic slave imagery strikes a similar discordant note. Walker’s multi-figure compositions are bizarrely detailed and narrative, but both artists engage stereotypes in a provocative context that can bemuse the viewer. Dragan says he aims to depict social and psychic violence inflicted on black men in our culture. His elegantly composed metaphors for a legacy of

weight, the final Harry Potter film marks not only the mournful conclusion of a venerated franchise — it also represents a shift in how, and for whom, J.K. Rowling’s lore is rendered for the screen. Plenty of book-to-film adaptations are lambasted by ardent print fans who rag on studios (they don’t read, man!) for cutting corners in the name of cinematic and commercial efficacy. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 doesn’t fit that bill: In contrast, it skews to the bookworms, painting in playful strokes often recognizable to hardcore fans only. you’re outed as a Muggle or Squib if half the audience laughs or cheers at something you don’t get. Not that the core story is difficult to digest: With lord Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes) in possession of the powerful “Elder Wand” and our hero (Daniel Radcliffe) on a frantic search for the last of the Horcruxes (erstwhile fragments of lV’s soul that allow for his sprightly, demonic demeanor), most Part 2 scenes are building blocks for the climactic Battle of Hogwarts, where the two factions finally dance, blowing up a shitload of Scots Baronial architecture in the process. Though there are snack-size portions of the youthful, magic-charged mischief that four-time Potter director David yates is so good at staging, there’s simply no time for Hermione and Ron (Emma Watson and Rupert Grint) to shoegaze or for Harry to sulk — yates is too busy marching the kids through the thickets of death, remorse and salvation, a candid, intermittently maudlin journey that should spark empathy in superfans and front-runners alike. Same goes for Alan Rickman, whose meaty performance as the tortured Severus Snape seals his status as the best overall actor in the series. —Drew Lazor

Simply no time to sulk.

THEM’S FIGHTIN’ WORDS: Most scenes in Part 2 are building blocks for a climactic battle in which the two factions, headed by Harry Potter and Lord Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes, right), finally dance.

a different way of doing things. His Hella Fresh Theater Co. is presenting Queen of All Weapons at a time when nearly every other local company is dark for the summer. Queen is jam-packed with the usual rhythms of Rosenberg’s visceral, wry language. But it’s also a departure from the personal tack in his other work. The play takes place in 1977 — set entirely in one apartment — as a pair of small-time drug dealers are confronted by a violent political extremist. “I went to Berkeley, and I understood that it used to be this hotbed of radicalism. But it’s not anymore,” says Rosenberg. “I had friends who were hard-core activists — trying to keep it going. It always fascinated me how lonely those people were — these people who are so committed to solidarity. So I was interested in writing about what radicals went through directly after the revolution’s heyday.” In Philadelphia theater, a lot of fuss is made over press releases; small companies spend countless hours developing über-slick one-sheets. The release for Queen of All Weapons looks a little

unusual: It’s a ransom note by the main character of the play — a somewhat mentally unstable German — typed on a sheet of loose-leaf paper. It ends like this: Let the raging fires release your fucked slaves to the hell of which they can perform servantry for the victims of your illegal war in Indochina. And Jew atrocites in mnazi ocuppied israel. Beneath it, Rosenberg scrawled the title of the show, dates and website in his chicken-scratch handwriting. (He omitted the address of the theater.) Some editors and critics may have dismissed the release out of hand, but Rosenberg has already received more press in Philly than he did in San Francisco. It was crude but effective — and, above all, inspired. (editorial@citypaper.net)

 Body of Proof

racism and slavery are also portraits of a sort. He says he gets to know his models as individuals and poses them in ways that have meaning for them. But faces are not always in the picture. One series contrasts three simple photographs of a naked groin and hands with three identical close-ups posed behind prison bars. The impersonality contributes to the workâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s effectiveness. What difference do prison bars make to our understanding of a man â&#x20AC;&#x201D; rather than an individual personality? A man urinating on a Bible, one of a 10-part series called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Modern Slaveâ&#x20AC;? (also the name of the show), perhaps intentionally evokes Andres Serranoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s scandalous Piss Christ. That image of a crucifix suspended in the artistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s urine initiated the 1989 controversy that ended federal funding of some art. Draganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s intent here may be to reject a Christianity that says homosexuality is a sin or that is used to justify racial violence. Defiling the Bible may be titillatingly transgressive to some people, but it will violently enrage others. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not even think what might happen if that Bible were a Quran.

Dragan must also be compared to Robert Mapplethorpe. A 1988 Mapplethorpe retrospective organized by the Institute of Contemporary Art here in Philadelphia included the photographerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s celebrated (and castigated) images of black male nudes, bondage and sadomasochistic situations. The show was well-attended and reviewed locally, but in 1989 it ran into trouble in Washington, D.C., where Mapplethorpe and Serrano became censorship poster boys. Dragan, like Mapplethorpe, composes with exquisite formal beauty. Mapplethorpe, however, was unconcerned with embodying a message. His focus on beauty brought its own problems. When there isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a â&#x20AC;&#x153;higherâ&#x20AC;? message, too much beauty just feels wrong to a lot of people. Like Mapplethorpe, who was a successful commercial photographer, Dragan could sell plenty of pictures without trying to say something profound. Sometimes, as with Prometheus Transcended, a hand-tinted photograph notable for its dramatic diagonal composition, he succeeds in presenting a strong visual idea seemingly without effort. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when the nude suddenly makes sense. (r_rice@citypaper.net)

The story of Carlos (Demián Bichir) could not be more timely or timeless. A Mexican immigrant who has lived for decades in East l.A., he’s made a point of keeping his head down and working hard, all to keep his u.S.-born son luis (José Julián) safe. When his longtime employer sells his pickup truck and landscaping business, it means a chance to move to another neighborhood and ensure that luis won’t fall in with a gang at his school. But everything begins to go wrong, and the movie shifts from an effective, low-key character study to a series of episodes, some antic, some predictable and some desperate. But if the film is uneven, and sometimes clichéd, Belchir is wonderful throughout, his ache and charm remaining subtle even as the melodrama seems overwhelming. As he gazes out the city bus window — with long panning shots intimating his heartbreak and wonder at all manner of people on the street or on suburban sidewalks, people who are living the life he imagined for luis — you see the film’s unresolved dilemma: Carlos’ experience is too familiar and also too often forgotten. He understands how he’s seen, how he’s feared and reviled, and all he wants is to look and live like those who would judge him. When Chris Weitz’s film keeps that focus, it’s poignant. But it’s just as often overly conventional, as if not to frighten away judgmental viewers. —Cindy Fuchs (Ritz Five)

Wexler’s camera scans a series of photos of her: “I prefer to remember her like this — high-spirited, creative, young.” The scene sets up a tension in Wexler’s documentary, between yearning for long life and dreading old age. The film rushes from one interview to another, from gerontologists and funeral directors to fitness expert Jack lalanne (who died in January) and Suzanne Somers (at 100, she says, “I want to play Chrissy Snow again as a really, really smart old lady”) — and lots of old people. They describe how they’ve lived or how they imagine dying. “I have a stick with a nail in it, and I go through life jabbing it at truths, and I keep them in a garbage bag,” says Ray Bradbury in not precisely a prescription, but something like an apt summation. Some say longevity might be achieved through nanobots in the blood or pet robots; other eat fish or smoke cigarettes and drink. As Wexler worries about forgetting, declining health and crass advertising geared toward baby boomers, he doesn’t come up with a compelling story or, for that matter, refined questions. you get an idea of where he might begin when writer Pico Iyer asks, “Mark, what moves you to make this movie?” He comes back to his mom, and how she looked to him as she was aging. But you get the feeling that other answers remain out of reach. —C.F. (Ritz at the Bourse)

from the neck up, Bad Teacher is lazily written and indifferently directed, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still a fitfully engaging showcase for a handful of razor-sharp comic talents. As an unrepentant gold digger saving up for a pair of fake tits, Cameron Diaz flaunts her lack of redeeming qualities, showing her seventhgrade students Dangerous Minds while she sleeps off a hangover at her desk. The movie is full of discarded plot threads and half-sketched characters, which is actually more offensive than its scattering of scatalogical jokes, but youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have to have a strong will to resist the sight of Diaz jamming a corn dog into the mouth of a mustard bottle and tearing off a blissfully unhealthy bite. â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Sam Adams (Pearl, UA Grant, UA Riverview)

Horrible bosses|C+ Jason Bateman, Jason Sudekis and

Charlie Day plot to permanently dispose of their, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s say, unpleasant supervisors, in the feature debut of King of Kongâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Seth Gordon. The manipulative tyrant (Kevin Spacey) and the vengeful cokehead (Colin Farrell) are one thing, but Dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s saddled with an even worse fate: a hot boss (Jennifer Aniston) who wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop trying to jump his bones. Sexual panic figures heavily in the script â&#x20AC;&#x201D; three writers, sitcom vets all â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and not just Dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s screeching, either. As they proceed with a plan to criss-cross murders, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of low-stakes humor, occasionally brought off by a mostly ingratiating cast. Day, however, brings the film to a shuddering halt every time he leaps into his falsetto shtick, which is roughly every 90 seconds. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to remember the last time an actor so over-estimated his onscreen charisma. â&#x20AC;&#x201D;S.A. (Pearl, Roxy, UA Grant, UA Riverview)

MidnigHt in Paris|B+ No filmmaker has been so self-aware and yet so trapped by his own neuroses as Woody Allen. Midnight in Paris is his latest auto-diagnosis, recognizing his chronic discontent and romanticization of an ideal other time, other place. That would be 1920s Paris, which screenwriter Gil (Owen Wilson) pines for as his own gilded age. Despite his role as chronicler of modern intellectual life, Allen has never shied away from leavening his films with fantasy, and the latest iteration results in his best film in recent memory, light and amiable but honestly funny. â&#x20AC;&#x201D;S.B. (Ritz Five)

Page one|BAndrew Rossi spent a year inside The New York Times and emerged with a sporadically engaging but largely flaccid portrait of journalism done right. Rossiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision to focus on the

Timesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; media desk, particularly the slobby, scratchy-voiced and irresistible reporter David Carr, should put the film in the thick of the changes roiling the industry, but instead he opts for the far less enlightening tack of showering hosannas on the paperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coverage, which is a little like pointing out that, hey, the yankees are a pretty good team. â&#x20AC;&#x201D;S.A. (Ritz Five)

tHe tree of life|ATerrence Malickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s phenomenal, phenomenological The Tree of Life tells the story of Jack, whose father (Brad Pitt) drills his three sons ceaselessly on his version of proper behavior. His wife (Jessica Chastain) is a less defined presence, powerfully emotive but hazily sketched. The opening narration lays out a struggle between the principles of grace (formative, forgiving, divine) and nature (earthly, destructive), attributes which sync loosely with the parents themselves. Malickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reach extends far beyond the confines of time and place, to the edges of the universe and the dawn of life. There hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been anything like The Tree of Life in years, and until Malick makes another movie, there wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be. â&#x20AC;&#x201D;S.A. (Ritz at the Bourse)

tHe triP|B+ Road trips offer freedom of exploration, unscheduled days â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and the occasionally hellish confinement of being trapped in a tiny space with another person. Comedians Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon swerve between both extremes while traveling through the British countryside, carping at each other, riffing on inane comic concepts and sinking into self-absorbed silences. In short, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just like any long car trip â&#x20AC;&#x201D; with the added neuroses of two professional comedians. â&#x20AC;&#x201D;S.B. (Ritz at the Bourse)

ZookeePer|F Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unclear why zookeeper Griffin (Kevin James) wants to marry Stephanie (leslie Bibb), a fashion designer, in the first place. So when she dumps him â&#x20AC;&#x201D; cruelly â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the premise becomes even fuzzier. The animals under his care, so it seems, want to help him win her back. Voiced by celebrities, these creatures come up with a series of terrible ideas. While it wants to be Night at the Museum meets Dr. Dolittle, Zookeeper is relentlessly stupid and badly put together. â&#x20AC;&#x201D;C.F. (Pearl, UA Grant, UA Riverview)

 SnackS Every week the people behind Making Time and Rvng Intl. turn it out proper in Voyeur’s Ruby lounge basement. This week is extra special because they have Tigersushi Records’ head honcho, Joakim, laying

down the peak-hour sounds. Hailing from Paris, Joakim just released the single “Forever young” from his upcoming album. And if that’s not enough, Portland’s Matthew Quiet will guest-DJ. All this radness is free, people, and it’s going late. —Gair “dev 79” Marking Thu., July 14, 10 p.m.-3:30 a.m., Voyeur, 1221 St. James St., 215-7355772, voyeurnightclub.com.

 Da Vinci From its brick front, the Da Vinci Art Alliance looks like any other South Philly home on a nice wide block. That’s good — for 80 years now, it’s always felt more like a familial place than a cold gallery space. This nonprofit, founded by a group of Italian-Americans, has a locals-only focus and concentrates on all forms of art, workshops and off-site collaborations. To celebrate eight decades, Da Vinci hosts the

“80th Anniversary Members Exhibition: Then and Now,” an insular multimedia show featuring all manner of Italians. Abbondanza. —a.d. amorosi Through July 31, free, Da Vinci Gallery, 704 Catharine St., 215-8290466, davinciartalliance.org.

 PHilly Joe JoneS triBute Plenty of jazz icons have come out of Philadelphia, but only one shares its name. On what would have been his 88th birthday, Jazz Bridge will honor Philly Joe Jones and raise money to help local musicians in need. The evening begins — appropriately enough when paying tribute to one of the music’s greatest drummers — with the rhythm-heavy sounds of Sticks & Tones Percussion. After that, one of Philly Joe’s torchbearers, the great Mickey Roker, will lead his quartet with local sax leg-

If you think punk and femininity are forever enemies, you’ve never met Candy Depew.And we’re not talking about some awful leather-studs-and-pink-bows Hot Topic hybrid; she’s the real deal, a DIY silk-screener with a keen sense of ethics and aesthetics. No one does the hard-meets-soft, rock-meets-posh act better than Depew, a local artist who’ll give a free screen-printing demo at Art Star Gallery & Boutique this evening (July 14). Witness firsthand the fruits of handmade labor — and the sense of accomplishment that comes from creating your own rad designs. If the spirit moves you, sign up for one of Depew’s classes, which she holds all summer at her Studio School of Decorative Art in Old City. If you’re more of a consumer than a constructor, don’t sweat it — this week’s Thirsty Thursday shindig at Art Star will also make available Fat Quarters, Depew’s newest line of punchy graphic yardage. Pick up fabrics adorned with goldfish, diamonds and regal flowers, all created in colors that pop. The end result may seem simple, but the way Depew organizes and executes her patterns is nothing short of sophisticated:The linear movements are thoughtful and the color palette, saturated and sexy. Where does she draw inspiration? Well, pretty much everywhere: “They come from recollections, color combinations seen, observing plants grow, understanding how learning changes peoples’ lives,” she says.“From hearing stories on public transit, riding bikes on a perfect day [or] evening with a gentle summer breeze, symbols from ancient times, life in general and most of its facets.” Demonstration and Thirsty Thursday event, Thu., July 14, 5-8 p.m., free, Art Star Gallery & Boutique, 623 N. Second St., 215-238-1557, artstarphilly.com, candycoated.org. (julia.west@citypaper.net)

 Chapin SiSterS The title of the Chapin Sisters’ new album, Two, has a double meaning: It’s their sophomore release, but it also marks their paring down to a duo after the departure of their half-sister/ Wes Craven’s daughter Jessica

Craven. But the eeriness that marked their debut didn’t leave with her; their haunting harmonies now suggest Alan Lomax discovering the Shining twins, Appalachian folksiness blended with ghostly plaints. —Shaun Brady Sun., July 17, 8 p.m., $12-$15, with Sean Rowe, World Café Live, 3025 Walnut St., 215-222-1400, worldcafelive.com.

While the long-running New York indie weirdos haven’t exactly gone normal on us, they’ve created their most palatable and streamlined effort to date. Still, they manage to cram a sizable smattering of everything into their globe-traversing grooves, from the jump-up bashment bass of “MindKilla” to the swirling Eastern inflections of “Chinese High” to the abstracted quiet storm R&B of “Romance Layers” — and through it all, the spine-tingling wails and simpers of the legitimately Björk-like Lizzi Bougatsos.

lithe sentence ➤ Lauren Boggi, owner and creator of

Lithe Method, a women’s fitness regime based on cardio, cheer and Pilates, started her company, Lithe Inc., in 2005 with a single studio in Northern Liberties. Since then, she’s expanded to locations in Rittenhouse and Old City; founded Lithe Pink, for post-operative breast cancer survivors; Lithe Wear, an apparel collection; and now Lithe Foods, a new grab-and-go health-food line she launched in April with the help of Lauren Hooks and Kim Osinski, both experienced restaurant and private chefs. “I wanted to create a healthy, sustainable way of eating, and I wanted it to be a lifestyle,” says Boggi. So in partnership with Hooks and Osinski, she constructed a seasonal, organic and mostly vegan menu based on products supplied by Fernbrook Farms, a chemical-free herb/vegetable farm in Bordentown, N.J., and Zone 7, a farm-fresh distribution center that links farmers and chefs throughout Jersey and Eastern Pennsylvania. Lithe Foods are handmade and prepackaged by Hooks and Osinski in Fernbrook Farms’ kitchen and sold at Boggi’s Old City and Rittenhouse studios. Boggi’s desire to create meals that were “nonprocessed, locally sourced … calorically correct, full of flavor and free from preservatives” has its roots in her farm-life upbringing. Fine-tuned throughout a year of tossing around ideas and testing recipes, Hooks and Osinski’s portion-controlled summer menu offers a range of options for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacking, like Blissful Berry Quinoa, a blend of strawberries, almond butter, coconut water, flax seed and agave. The menu provides an assortment of salads, wraps, egg and tofu dishes, as well as my personal favorite,The Herbie, a “Lithe Roll-Up” of seitan, zucchini, mushrooms, sun-dried tomatoes, onion and pesto in a whole-wheat Lavash tortilla. Lithe’s “Bento Box” contains roasted chickpeas, kale chips, granola and couscous for snacking. Boggi is continuing to create new Lithe Foods beyond the savory realm, too — she also has Lithe Smoothies and Lithesicles, 50-calorie popsicles, in flavors like cucumber-lime and lavender-lemon, which are due to come out this month. Boggi hopes to make her Lithe brand more accessible by getting Lithe Foods into local fresh-food stores. For now, though, Boggi and her chefs are discussing the idea of developing custom meal plans for clients, and Hooks hopes to get into the kitchen and teach vegan cooking classes in the near future. “We’re loving the new additions,” she says. To keep tabs on what Boggi is thinking up next, visit fithiphealthy.com. (nicole.rossi@citypaper.net)

ike restaurants, olives require work. you can’t just pick a teeny arbequina or a chubby cerignola off a tree and chomp it like a ripe grape or kumquat. Olives, one of the most widely cultivated crops in the world, make their admirers, however indirectly, pay for their affection. From the chichi picholines of Di Bruno’s and Garces Trading Co. and the wrinkly gaetas sold by the plastic cup More on: in smelly Italian delis to the pimento-stuffed orbs wondering what’ll kill them first, the Grey Goose or the businessman’s molars, all but a few varieties of olives must be cured or fermented before eating. unlike slutty peaches and apples, the olive is a fruit you need to woo. Al Zaytouna, the Tunisia-inspired month-and-a-half-old ByO on a block better known for stuffed French toast than kebabs, is named after the ancient center for Islamic learning in the North African country’s capital of Tunis. But the literal Arabic translation is “the olive,” and this trim 30-seater is not unlike the fruit in

When Benayed landed in Philly in 1995, he brought with him firsthand experience he parlayed into front- and back-of-the-house turns at Bistro St. Tropez, la Terrasse and Brasserie Perrier before riding solo on the old Mew Gallery space Al Zaytouna now occupies. Benayed has transformed the artsy-craftsy emporio, now decluttered of peacock-feather earrings and recycled-paper birthday cards. The only clue you’re in the same place are the sidewalk lingerers, just in view outside, waiting for a table at Sabrina’s. Where the handiwork of local artists once lined the hardwood-plank walls, now hang tourist-bureau posters of Sidi Bou Said, its whitewashed beach homes making it look like an appealmore food and ing honeymoon destination. With the heat drink coverage hanging in the restaurant like wet laundry, at c i t y p a p e r . n e t / I almost felt like I was there. m e a lt i c k e t. Chef Noomen Abed, a longtime veteran of Alyan’s on South Street (and fellow Tunisian), cooks everything in the skinny open kitchen just inside the front door. That’s got something to do with the heat — so does the door, propped open to catch an imaginary Philly summer breeze. Walking inside, you can feel the radiant warmth as Abed grills various meats over glowing coals and carves others from a rotating shawarma spit. Al Zayouna’s open kitchen is nice, and so is the welcoming, >>> continued on adjacent page

flung-open door. But sweating into your hummus isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. Not when the hummus, smoothed in Tunisian fashion with lots of tahina, is this soothing. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s extra lemony, which is how I like my hummus, as well my Diet Coke. I dragged each point of warm pita â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Benayed gets it from a Middle Eastern bakery in Whitehall Township â&#x20AC;&#x201D; through the well of olive oil like a kid at the beach digging for sand crabs. Benayed says his primary business is takeout and delivery; I certainly would be happy if his hummus showed up at my door. While carry-out business booms â&#x20AC;&#x201D; during our interview, I had to call Benayed back on his cell because the restaurant line kept blowing up â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Benayed plans to improve the eat-in experience. The place could definitely use more decoration, as the Coca-Cola fridge really doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t qualify, and service, though warm, was somewhat jumpy. But based on my meal, it was the cooking in need of the most finesse. The parlsey-and-cilantro-greened falafel, for example, possessed an attractive herbal flavor but not enough of it to mask the taste of fryer oil. That the exteriors arrived nearly black should have been a clue. Foul mudammas (fava beans crushed into a paste with garlic, lemon and olive oil) could have used a stronger dose of the ras el hanout Benayedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mom sends via FedEx monthly from the motherland, and the grilled lamb chops that shouldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been luscious were instead scrawny and tough. The rice, served with all entrĂŠes, is doctored Uncle Benâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, and the trout comes from the restaurant wholesaler Jetro. Despite its provenance, I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hate on the Jetrout. It was the knockout of the night, a fine specimen measuring a full foot from nose to fin and served whole. Given Tunisiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s location on the Mediterranean, seafood is a staple of the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s diet, and Al Zaytouna treats its daily fish in the traditional manner, marinating it in lemon juice, extra-virgin olive oil and a sprinkle of cumin for â&#x20AC;&#x153;no less than three hoursâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Benayed is adamant about that. Al Zaytouna should capitalize on unexpected dishes like this one. Crispy-skinned after a pan-sear and packed with sweet, flaky white flesh, the trout didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem like standard kebab-shop fare. (Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got some satisfying kebab, too, the best of which are the steak and chicken.) Speared with a few leaves of salad slicked in punchy lemon vinaigrette, the fish tasted electric. I want more Tunisian secrets and specialties like this. Sure, all the settlements along the shores of the Mediterranean share some culinary overlap, but highlighting and celebrating the distinctions of Benayed and Abelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cradle would seed Al Zaytouna in its own conference. Those recipes are on the way, Benayed promises, but for now, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll only get to try their housemade red couscous with braised lamb shank (as one big birthday booking did recently) with a large party and plenty of advanced notice. Looks like I know where Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be celebrating next year. (adam.erace@citypaper.net)
