orologist) spring is on the horizon with its scheduled March 20 start date. Call it a technicality. As I write this Editor’s Note with the sun shinning brightly in my face, it already looks and feels like spring out there. The words “Spring Guide� open doors for fun days in the scenic outdoors. Residents can take a short stroll to the local water ice stand of choice and scoop up their favorite frozen flavor. Others enjoy the ambiance of The Lakes with a four-legged friend in tow or play 18 holes on the links. Seventy-degree days also shout out for a let’s-goout-to-eat night. For those struggling with deciding where to dine, some of the South Philly Review’s 2012 Readers’ Choice winners are ready to deliver an award-winning meal, dessert or night out. Also, turn to the Review’s expanded “What’s Happening� section highlighting sports, concerts, spring offerings and much, much more. A thank you goes out to all the voters for taking the time to fill out the ballots and sharing your opinions.

tarting out in a small South Philly neighborhood grocery store, it took PrimoHoagies 20 years to grow into what is now an 80-plus location franchise, expanding beyond the tristate area. Known for its quality hoagies and personable customer service, its original Marconi location at 1528 W. Ritner St., has won readers’ hearts — or should we PrimoHoagies, once again is considered the tastiest sub say stomachs — for the shop in South Philly.

fourth-consecutive year. “It feels really good to have the people from the neighborhood still think we’re the best,” Audrey Neigre, manager of the area store, said Neigre’s father, Rich, founded Primo nearly two decades ago, and Neigre has worked for the thriving establishment since she was 13 years old. The turkey, roast beef and hot pepper cheese sandwich, “Audiablo,” is even named after her. “I feel like we just continue to have very good products. Our service is fast and efficient,” Neigre, 29, said. Growing as a business throughout Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey and Virginia also has increased the menu, which started with about 10 hoagie options, Neigre said. Now, with more than 60 choices, it is easy for Primo to be No. 1 in any hoagielover’s mind — especially if a traditional, specialty Italian hoagie is involved. Neigre, although not a big hoagie-eater herself, enjoys the tuna used for the hoagies, which is never pre-mixed for taste and quality purposes.

Meaty dynasty inning its seven-straight cheesesteak title, Geno’s Steaks, 1219 S. Ninth St., has become more of a ritual than a tradition. Or maybe it’s a homage to its creator, the late Joey Vento, who passed away in August. Geno’s Steaks remains open 24/7. Even within a city that prides itself on the creation of the sandwich, the Passyunk Square steak shop has followed the same routine since Vento began his empire 46 years ago. Thin, grilled steak fills oven-baked bread, which is topped with a choice of provolone, American, or the classic, wiz cheese and served wit or witout onions. The ritual though becomes real at the counter as patrons are expected to know their order and how to order it, because, according to its website, “the service is fast and the line keeps moving.” Vento previously made headlines for a sign in the establishment that read, “This is America. When ordering, speak English.” Celebrities, or pictures of them, can be found lining the walls and tables as Geno’s has become a national Philadelphia landmark. Bobby Flay, Tony Danza, and even Oprah Winfrey are all pictured on Geno’s hall of fame. While its competitors were fierce, Geno’s came back from behind to retain its crown leaving Jim’s Steaks and Tony Luke’s to earn second- and third-place titles, respectively.

Readers’ Choice 2012 There are a lot of family members still working for Primo, and those who own the franchises “are like family,” Neigre said. “That’s the best people to have,” Neigre said. Chickie’s Italian Deli sliced into second while Pastificio’s chewed up third.

Slow-roasted triumph

T

he Snyder Avenue Lunch Bar opened its doors in 1930, 82 years later readers’ have named the Whitman eatery, now known as John’s Roast Pork, 14 Snyder Ave., as having the top pork sandwich. The meat is seasoned, roasted and then served weekdays (and Saturdays starting April 7) until close or when the bread from Carangi Baking Co., 2655 S. Iseminger St., runs out. “Our roast pork — it’s really a nice story because my grandfather, [Domenico], he was an immigrant,” third-generation owner John Bucci, 46, said. “He came here from Italy. It was really his recipe, his brainchild. He was really ahead of his time.” Bucci’s father, John Sr., never witnessed the recent success, which includes being named a 2006 James Beard Foundation American Classics winner, as he passed away in 1991. “He never got to see us ever written up in the newspaper,” the Mantua Township, N.J. resident said. “He never thought of us as anything more than making a living, putting his kids through school.” Bucci entered the operation as a teen and took over after his father’s death. At that point, only Bucci and his mother, Vonda, 79, knew the secret recipe. However, when Bucci was diagnosed with leukemia in 2005 and needed to take time off following his bone-marrow transplant about four years ago, he supplied his niece Bethany Messick, 24, with the inside knowledge. “Even my wife [Victoria] doesn’t know the recipe,” Bucci, a native of the 2300 block of South Rosewood Street where his mother still resides, said. “… It’s just the three of us. We keep it very safe. We keep it close to our hearts.” And the staff remains mostly family members with the exception of manager Vince Long. “It’s very important we always have a family member on premises because no one cares like family,” Bucci said. Tony Luke’s scorched at second whereas Old Original Nick’s Roast Beef sizzled at third.

Those who prefer the latter version voted SliCE, 1180 S. 10th St., winner of this year’s award for best specialty pizza. “We’re constantly adding on new pizzas,” Marlo Dilks, co-owner of SliCE, said before describing the aforementioned truffle and rib-eye pizza that recently began appearing on the restaurant’s menu. “We’re different, we’re unique. Everything’s fresh, everything’s homemade, and you can taste the difference.” Residents of South Philly certainly seem to agree. Winner of the 2010 Readers’ Choice award for best original pizza, SliCE celebrated its sixth year of business at its Passyunk Square location. During that time, Dilks and her husband, Jason, with whom she owns the BYOB shop, have expanded to a second store in Rittenhouse Square and, just a few weeks ago, to a third location in Washington Township N.J. Despite its rapid growth, the owners remember their home base. “[The South Philly location] is our home store. This is where we started,” Dilks said. “We’re glad that the community supports us, because without them, we wouldn’t be where we are today.” Uncle Oogie’s Pizzeria took the secondplace slice while City Pizza gobbled up third.

alking into Penrose Diner, 2016 Penrose Ave., for the first time surely won’t be the last, for this family-favorite Packer Park diner has been voted, yet again, to surpass the rest. Any diner often will promote its laidback atmosphere, friendly waitstaff and delicious, affordable food, but Penrose excels by taking each of these characteristics to a whole new level, which, in return, has

People come here, they feel very comfortable,” Denise D’ambro, who has been waitressing at Penrose for 13 years, said. “Most of our customers, we know by first name. It’s just more of like a one-on-one with the customer and the waitstaff.” Penrose offers many specials for breakfast, making Sunday brunch the busiest day of the week. A breakfast special includes two eggs, home fries, a choice of meat, toast, coffee and juice, for about $7. The deals don’t stop at breakfast though. There are 28 daily lunch specials and the dinner bargains are large enough for some people to tote a portion home, which helps patrons get more bang for their buck. “I think based upon all the other restaurants that there are out there, I think [the prices] are pretty reasonable, especially if you’re coming in for one of the specials,” Lauren Musial, a Penrose server for 11 years, said. The diner also has adapted to customer requests by expanding its menu through-

out the years. “I believe that we’ve stepped out of the box for the simple fact that we aren’t just selling diner food. We’re doing paninis, we’re doing wraps. We’ve stepped out of that diner concept and we went a couple notches up,” D’ambro said. “What the people ask for, we compensate and we accommodate. We’re good listeners.” Melrose and Oregon diners rounded out the top three, respectively.

Seafood is perfectly displayed at Ippolito’s Seafood, home to the area’s best under-the-sea selections. seafood selection. “The draw is the freshness,” the great grandson of founder Guiseppi Ippolito said. His business savvy has enabled D’Angelo to secure shipments from across the United States and nearly two dozen countries. His diligence means that customers can typically find at least 100, and as many as 150, options when craving aquatic goods. The resident of the 1700 block of Porter Street has enjoyed bonding with regular and new buyers, the latter heightening his ambition to promote sustainably caught, tempting items. His spot thrives especially during the Lent and Christmas seasons, with grilling advocates also making the summer busy. “Fluke flounder and dry scallops are our top sellers,” he said. Ippolito’s offers daily specials and recently began delivery service. It is using its clout to educate people on the safety of such controversial catches as Chilean sea bass and swordfish, also popular among his gastronomes who go gaga for gills. Moving forward, D’Angelo wants even more people to experiment with his selections but no matter their picks, he is grateful they have chosen his wares. “I’m happy that our home base in South Philly appreciates what we do,” he said. Anastasi Seafood reeled in second place, with Scannicchio’s Italian Restaurant sinking third.

The fantastic four

F

or locals, dining at Scannicchio’s Italian Restaurant, 2500 S. Broad St., is like dining at home. Well, at home with the whole family. “Practically all the workers, except for one or two, it’s all family,” Christian Varalli, chef and co-owner of the best Italian restaurant winner, said. Varalli, along with Michael Gibson, took home the gold in the three additional categories of BYOB, dessert menu and chef.

Mexican-themed Cantina Los Cabillitos takes the prize for best ethnic restaurant (non-Italian).

Multiple winner Scannicchio’s Italian Restaurant provides the best dessert fare to delight locals’ taste buds. With Varalli’s brother Marc at the front of the house, his fiancée Chantel and son Christian Jr., as hostess and server, respectively, and his parents in various roles, Gibson’s daughter and sister help to round out the crew that make a night at the Marconi establishment feel like a Sunday dinner at Nona’s. “People come for stuff they grew up with, stuff like stuffed artichoke and tripe,” Varalli said of the regional Italian fare. “They’ll come and pass on a salad and get something that they just really, really like and come back often. “And [they like] the fact that they can take a bottle of wine and enjoy their dining on things they’ve been eating through their childhood. And I try and stress that we need to hit those things well.” In addition to the “labor-intensive” favorites on the main menu such as stuffed calamari and artichoke, the dessert menu garnered a win, Varalli thinks, for some of the popular orders such as bread pudding and cheesecake. “We usually try to have one to two bread

puddings a week. One of our best is chocolate, peanut butter and banana [bread pudding] and homemade ricotta cheesecake. The cheesecake is my mom’s recipe,” he said. In addition to mom Maryann’s desert, on the menu is grandma Mae Menta’s meatballs, something the recently turned centenarian perfected long ago. Indeed, the recipes have been passed through the years as Varalli’s father, John, opened the original Scannicchio’s in Atlantic City in 1978. “We opened this location in 2003. But I worked with him in Atlantic City a lot through childhood and a lot of summers,” Varalli said. “I spent 15 years in the front of the house and then the past nine years in the kitchen, so it has been a nice change of pace.” Varalli knows the success of the restaurant is dependent on the concert of help he gets from the family to his two sous-chefs as well as Gibson, a lifelong friend, with whom, Varalli said, exists a seamless understanding of how to run the place. “I think everybody has disputes and days everything is not perfect, which is normal,” the chef said. “It also has a good correlation with the way things are done and respect. Everyone knows their job and that is part of what makes the restaurant work and a success.” Ristorante Pesto garnered second-place victories in all four categories. L’Angolo Restaurant drank up third for toting along your own beverages. The bronze medal for Italian restaurant went to Ristorante Tre Scalini. The readers gave both Fuel and Melrose Diner sugary nods for a third-place tie for dessert menu while Fuel also rounded out the best chef category.

Adios to second

fter finishing as runner-up for the past three years to the reigning pick for top ethnic restaurant (non-Italian), Can-

tina Los Cabillitos has won the readers’ hearts this year. “I think its because we’re a neighborhood spot,” Renee Rowlett, a manager at the Mexican establishment at 1651 E. Passyunk Ave., said. “People feel welcome when they come in because the service is friendly and personable, we have great margaritas and our food is reasonably priced.” Those margaritas come frozen or on the rocks in a variety of flavors, including the crowd-favorite blood orange. In the kitchen, chef Mark McKinney and sous-chef Paul Martin create a variety of popular Mexican delicacies such as nachos and tacos that allow the customer to chose the contents that range from goat to vegan beef. Cantina, which will celebrate six years on the avenue in May, took home best outdoor dining in 2010, but since then, it has expanded its outside atmosphere. “We are no longer on the sidewalk,” the North Philly resident said “We have a patio that’s open from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m.” Regardless of the season, the East Passyunk Crossing eatery is always packed with a variety of patrons around the clock, especially since it starting serving brunch seven days a week earlier this year. “I think we get a broad spectrum of guests for sure,” Rowlett said. “Definitely people come from the suburbs, but it’s also a lot of local people, but you also get people that come in for the vegetarian stuff.” Losing its title, Johnny Chang’s slipped to No. 2 while Adobe Café was seated at third.

Readers’ Choice 2012

Birra employee Paul Gigante, from left, owner Gordon Dinerman and employee Adam Garbinski, a South Philadelphia Tap Room bartender, shows off one of the establishment’s prized craft beers. Brian Regan proudly boast Birra as the favorite newbie to satisfy hunger. a property at 1700 E. Passyunk Ave., and opted for a pizza and craft beer haven instead. With not even five months having passed since Birra arrived on the avenue, readers’ have named it their favorite new restaurant. “I definitely didn’t,” Fox said of his expectation of such quick success, “because there’s so many restaurants down here. I think people just figured out we’re good at what we do.” Fox arrives at work at 6:30 a.m. six days a week (Birra is closed Mondays) to prepare the dough and sauce, cut the vegetables and take care of any other prep work. “Everything is fresh, fresh, fresh ingredients,” Fox, who resides at Fifth and Tasker streets, said. He deems his menu as simple with an epic beer list that wife, Jessica, a Birra bar-

tender, creates. The East Passyunk Crossing spot offers more than just pizza though with mussels being a top-seller, along with three little pigs — a red pie topped with pancetta, porchetta, gabagool, mozzarella and fresh herbs — and mac & cheese — a white pizza that features elbow macaroni, pecorino, fontina, mozzarella, bread crumbs and fresh herbs. “Nothing’s new in the culinary world anymore,” Fox said. “Everyone’s already done it. You just try to put your own spin on it.” A classic margherita pie is also a fanfavorite, or a starter dish for those less adventurous. “As people come back, they figure if we can make the margherita, we can make other food as well,” Fox said. Stateside served up second place while Kris premiered in third.

Night on the town Superior suds

A

s it enters its ninth year of serving up cold beers, readers have solidified the South Philadelphia Tap Room, 1509 Mifflin St., as the top local spot for craft beer selection. Owner John Longacre attributes its success to his employees, who receive training on beer flavor profiles in order to be able to provide customers with suggestions based on their preferences. “We have the best staff in the city,” Longacre said. “We have a bunch of people that are truly passionate about beer working for us, particularly Kathryn [Wiggins] does a fantastic job for us.” Wiggins, a native of 13th Street and Snyder Avenue, is the beer manager at the bar, in addition to Brew, 1901 S. 15th St., a take-out beer shop.

“We try to run a selection of America’s best craft beer,” Longacre said of the rotating 14 beers on tap and 75 to 100 bottles. “We’re not a Belgian bar. We’re not an import-type place. … Kathryn is very in tuned with the better breweries in the country and who has the best beers.” While Philadelphia Brewing Co.’s Kenzinger is always on tap, the draft list usually also contains other Philadelphia Brewing Co. favorites, as well as Michigan’s Founders, Hershey-based Troegs, and Russian River and Firestone Walker brewing companies, both from California. The Newbold bar offers a variety of ways to taste new kinds of craft beers with an annual wheat beer festival in May, participation in June’s Philly Beer Week and a monthly tasting at Brew, which will feature Sierra Nevada 5 to 7 p.m. tomorrow. “I think it’s a great honor,” Longacre said. “There’s a lot of great craft beer plac-

es in South Philly now. It’s an honor that the readers would have chosen us.” Chickie’s & Pete’s brewed at second while Stogie Joe’s Tavern hopped in third.

Expansion worthy

W

hen Popi’s Italian Restaurant opened its doors in 1993, it quickly established itself as a popular neighborhood spot. One loyal patron enjoyed the food so much that he asked then owner Nicholas Rucci, “Can we have a party here?” Being a builder by trade, Rucci satisfied the customer’s request by building an additional room off of the main dinning space. “It took off from there,” co-owner Gina Rucci said of the establishment at 3120 S. 20th St. More than 18 years later, Popi’s continues to please its customers as the best place to celebrate a special occasion. Gina and her family continue to keep the creation of her father, who lost his life to cancer at age 70, going strong. The Packer Park establishment opens its banquet doors for a wide-range of occasions, with christenings, communions and graduations being a few of the more popular events. Gina said business dinners also tend to be popular. The banquet space can hold between 40 and 200 guests depending on the event. “The ambience of the place makes you feel comfortable, and everyone is so nice. You just want to keep coming back,” Marie Ciafre, of the 1700 block of South 12th Street, said. The 2011 Readers’ Choice pick for best crab cakes, Popi’s follows many recipes that have been passed down and are hallmarks in the Rucci family. “Everything is homemade and delicious,” Ciafre said. “There’s something for the kids and the adults to eat, so you don’t have to worry about bringing the whole family and someone not eating.”

The banquet hall at Popi’s Italian Restaurant awaits celebrants of special occasions. Gina was pleased by the positive praise. “[The readers] giving us the award lets us know we are doing our job well,” she said. Swan Waterfall Caterers arranged second, with Cantina Los Caballitos gathering in third.

A triple-threat serving

T

his year’s winners’ list wouldn’t be complete without at least one mention of Chickie’s & Pete’s, 1526 Packer Ave. This growing empire, with ESPN deeming the Packer Park location the Best Sports Bar in North America, has set the gold standard of what it takes to capture votes and hearts of the South Philly Review’s readership. This year, owner Pete Ciarrocchi and his staff locked up top honors for best french fries, happy hour and bar menu. Ciarrocchi might be the mastermind behind the brand that includes multiple locations across Pennsylvania and New Jersey,

Waitresses Mary Hoffman, from left, Monique DiGuglielmo and Nicole Speakman served up Chickie’s & Pete’s award-winning Crabfries, among other favorite Friday happy hour and bar fare items. but his all-star support system is the one completing this success story. “I only take credit for inventing the stuff,” he said. “It’s really my employees who deserve the credit.” Chickie’s and Pete’s entry in the french fry competition is so popular — make that world famous — that it has been trademarked. And when the doors of the Philly MarketPlace at Xfinity Live! swing open later this month, the popular item will not be hard to find there either. The Crabfries are available at 46 locations across the U.S., including recently added Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City. “Winning the best Crabfries in Philly means more to me than selling them in Kansas City because this is where we are from,” Ciarrocchi said. He also puts a lot of thought into the wide variety of menu options he makes available for his patrons sitting at the bar. Sure the wings, burgers and other sandwiches are available, but the seafood offerings have really caught on with the crowd. White lobster pizza, mussels marinara and hard shells are just a few of the items that get the taste buds stirring. “We specialize in shellfish,” Ciarrocchi said. Being within walking distance of the sports complex makes the landmark a per-

fect place to stop before a Phillies game or Bruce Springsteen concert. Drivers should factor in a little extra time trying to find a spot during busier events. Some prefer leaving the keys with the valet and hopping aboard the taxi crab that is seen traveling up and down South Broad Street. While locals might be most familiar with the Packer Avenue location, Chickie’s and Pete’s, which was born in Northeast Philly, now appears on the Warrington and Audubon, N.J. maps and will soon be added to Drexel Hill. Like major league sports, expansion can sometimes dilute the product, but Ciarrocchi has a system in place that keeps the happy times flowing. When a new location opens, half of the workforce is pulled from an established spot to make the transition smoother. “My employees take pride in the product and look at expansion as a step up,” Ciarrocchi said. The hotly-contested race for top fries included second-place heat from Geno’s Steaks while Pat’s King of Steaks salted third. For happy hour, Cantina Los Caballitos and Stogie Joe’s Tavern drank up second and third, respectively. Stogie Joe’s also earned a runner-up nod for bar menu while South Philadelphia Tap Room toasted third.

Leader of Packer Park

hen thinking about grabbing an iced coffee on the go before work, the likes of a Starbucks or Dunkin’ Donuts might be the stop of choice to satisfy that caffeine addiction. But this is South Philly, an area that specializes in quaint and friendly establishments. Caffe Chicco — with the latter meaning coffee bean in Italian — has developed such a following that it has been deemed the Readers’ Choice winner for iced coffee. The news certainly caught owner Rosario Tascione off guard. “I was actually shocked because the iced coffee is probably what I focus on least,” Tascione, who has owned the 2532 S. Broad St. location for 13 years, said. “Sometimes the machine is broken. I use my regular dip coffee and pour it into a cup while it’s still hot so the sugar melts.” French vanilla, caramel, Irish cream and hazelnut are some of the popular available flavors, especially during the busier hours of 9 to 11 a.m. and 3 to 5 p.m., when people need that “late-day pick-me-up,” Tascione said. When the establishment opened in 1999, it wasn’t about earning any coffeebrewing crowns. Tascione wanted fill a neighborhood void.

arbara Capozzi’s résumé contains more volunteer work than paid work, and that’s the way she likes it. This may be why the Packer Park resident was voted this year’s Readers’ Choice winner for civic leader. “My business is my hobby; my civic duties are my work. It’s what I spend most of my time on and it happens to be what I am really, really good at,” Capozzi said. As the president of the Packer Park Civic Association since 1994, Capozzi works tirelessly to preserve the area that her father began building. “My father built Packer Park, so I was here before it was built, putting it all together and all,” Capozzi said of her father Ludwig S. Capozzi Jr. “So I’ve always loved Packer Park.” As a resident of the 1900 block of Hartranft Street, she is protecting her own rights as well as those of her constituents. “We have actually, for years, we asked people to help. They know the difference; I have them trained well around here,” she said with a laugh. “If I am in need of a crowd, I can easily get 300 to 400 people.

When we need them, they show up.” Capozzi worries, at times, that her board makes the work look too easy, but her win this year may convince the leader that her neighbors know just how hard she works. “[The win] is really nice — that makes my day,” she said. “... A real leader doesn’t take a stand depending on who calls them. If I’m doing it, I’m doing it for the right reasons.” Joseph F. Marino of East Passyunk Crossing Civic Association and Town Watch volunteered in second and Kim Massare of the Lower Moyamensing Civic Association tended to third.

Flawless smile

M

any residents may not look forward to their turn in the dentist’s chair, but when it came to pick South Philly’s best dentist, readers were split between Dr. Steven Moskowitz and Dr. William Mestichelli. Moskowitz, of Moskowitz Dental Associates, 1517 Packer Ave., had a few relatives in dental professions, and since he wanted to help people as well, he followed in their footsteps. Moskowitz, who resides in Villanova with wife, Dr. Beverly Moskowitz and his dog, Sherman, grew up in Connecticut, and discovered South Philly while attending Temple University School of Dentistry. “I saw this opportunity in this wonderful neighborhood, Packer Park, and I jumped on it,” he said. The father of five and grandfather of two keeps his days extra busy with dentistry prosthetic implants, root canal therapy, cosmetic dentistry fillings, bleaching, among other procedures. “We’re very patient-centered,” he said.

“We love and respect our incredible, diverse patient population. We try to satisfy their needs whether it be pain relief, cosmetic work [or] restoration of missing teeth. It’s all done in a very, very caring and upbeat atmosphere.” He has treated patients who were born in three different centuries over his 35-year career, but still credits his staff for his success and readers for his recognition. “I love what I do,” Moskowitz said. “I’m very lucky and I want to thank everyone who voted for me. I really appreciate the community coming out and giving me this honor. It means a lot to me.” About a mile north, Mestichelli General Dentistry, 1727 S. Broad St., has been in operation for 28 years. A move to the current space that is equipped with laser technology, an upgrade from the 1815 S. Broad St. office, occurred four years ago. The native of the 1800 block of South Sartain Street, who now resides in Moorestown, N.J., or above his office with his wife, Karen, also attributed his success to those around him. “The staff here — the girls here are the friendliest people around,” the father of two, including his office manager Jaclyn, and grandfather of one, said. “That always eases [patients’] fears and apprehensions. They’re probably the reason we were picked more than me.” Mestichelli, who will welcome his sonin-law, Dr. Michael Barnes, a physician and a dentist, to his practice soon, spent the first two years of his career under the guidance of Dr. John Vivacqua and Dr. Mi-

Readers’ Choice 2012 chael Ruggieri. The former was not only his mentor, but also his childhood dentist. “I always had bad teeth growing up, so I was always in the dental office and I guess knowing him so well [influenced me],” Mestichelli, whose daughter’s Chihuahua, Hank, serves as the office mascot on occasion, said. His patients, many who have been with him throughout his 30-year tenure, are also friends he helps with the proper care. “You don’t come in and get a root canal and crown if we can fix it with a regular filling,” the Temple Dentistry grad said.

Johnny Looch rocks a beat as he claims the title of South Philly’s No. 1 DJ.

“I

’m addicted to the smiles, and the crowd dancing, and seeing people having a good time,” disc jockey Johnny Looch said. But the people of South Philly seem addicted to him, naming Looch the best DJ in the area. Looch has been DJing for almost 27 years, but he believes the summer of 2011 made his name official. Every Thursday, the native of the 900 block of South 10th Street could be found at Center City’s Table 31, hosting ladies’ night. On Saturdays, Looch would cross the bridge to work at Mia Restaurant of Caesars Hotel Casino in Atlantic City. “There would be lines of people there, and I would go back home and tell my wife and kids that there was a line. That is the type of thing I was hoping for when I would practice in my mother’s basement,” Looch, who resides on the 700 block of South 10th Street with wife, Nikki, and his four children, said. Looch continues those gigs, and now spins at LaScala’s, Sixth and Chestnut streets, and Quattro Bar, 2535 S. 13th St., in addition to weddings, birthday parties and anniversaries. He, however, does not

have a favorite venue. “Every night at any place is a great night for me,” Looch said. “It wouldn’t be fair to say that weddings are better than nights at the club. It’s a different group of people every night. I don’t have a set playlist, I play based on the people and their response.” DJ Ed Tully found the beat in second, and Rocco Cima and Mike Corny shared the booth for third.

he contributes to the community by teaching young people how to be in business. He also combines his efforts at the store and with his work at the South Philadelphia Business Association to establish monetary scholarships for students seeking higher education. With strong commitment to the trade and outstanding customer service, Dan said this has been one of the “best business years ever.” Telstar Jewelers made the cut for second place and Armando Rey Jewelry shined close behind.

with the local tasks delighting his allegiance to bonding with various flocks. “I am South Philly through and through,” Kelley, who had never imagined he would land St. Monica, which he tabbed “a huge component of South Philly’s identity,” as his initial congregation, said. As the spiritual leader for more than 3,300 families, he has experienced happiness and tragedy with the believers, developing a definite sense of his home at large. “South Philadelphians never forget a kindness,” he said, “and I won’t forget this one.” St. Nicholas of Tolentine’s Nick Martorano beatified second place, while Epiphany of Our Lord’s John Pidgeon sanctified third.

Making the cut

W

ith D. Olivieri Jewelers’ friendly, relaxing atmosphere and affordable prices at 2523 S. Broad St., the family-owned business since 1957 topped the rest as best jewelry store. Dan Olivieri and his mother Lena Olivieri, third-generation owners of one of the oldest jewelry stores in South Philly, boast about being one of the few jewelers in the area that still manufacture on the premises. The business also promotes a friendly atmosphere for customers. “People that aren’t friends become friends quickly,” Dan said. The Gemological Institute of America graduate and certified gemologist has a loyal following of customers — reaching all the way to California — who have moved out of the area and still find a way to do business over the telephone. “We really do whatever it takes to make the customer happy,” he said. The 55-year-old jewelry operation has excelled above and beyond with a large selection of jewelry, including work from top designers in Italy. “We have everything from sterling silver, which is low to moderate in price, all the way up to very expensive diamond rings,” he said. By hiring young adults and students from Philly to work for him, Dan believes

L

ike any true Roman Catholic, Rev. Joseph Kelley possesses a modest mentality. The ninth-year pastor at St. Monica, 1714 Ritner St., credits predecessors Monsignor Aloysius F.X. Farrell and Bishop Louis A. DeSimone with making his Girard Estate haunt such a devout locale, but readers decided that despite his believing he is just “following their outline,” he deserves top priest distinction. “This neighborhood has an incredible vibe that few places in the world can rival,” the native of the 900 block of Pierce Street said of his parish, the area’s largest with nearly 9,000 members. Kelley will celebrate his 25th anniversary as a priest May 17, with only his fouryear tenure as president of Warminster’s Archbishop Wood High School taking him away from his beloved South Philly. In addition to his first pastoral assignment, the half-Irish, half-Italian religious ministered at Sacred Heart of Jesus, 1404 S.

Readers have proclaimed Avicolli the top principal for her efforts to make her 11-year-old Marconi site the denition of a creative haven. “This school has given me the most rewarding experiences,” the resident of the 3100 block of South 18th Street said, citing its vibrancy and her personnel’s energy. “I feel as if I am on a magic carpet ride.” The Packer Park resident oversees 654 students, with 400 more set to become her charges when a second facility opens in September at the current Fels South Philadelphia Community Center, 2407 S.

Readers’ Choice 2012 often receive examples of her mentality through practices such as her giving her phone number to everyone to address situations quickly, reviewing all graded tests, taking the eighth-graders to Chinatown for lunch and offering gifts to the instructors. She nds herself so consumed with devising means to better her locale that even her weekends feature constant preparation. “A principal needs to set the tone,” she said. She enjoys noting the nal three letters of her title spell “pal,” and she hopes her plans to accomplish more reminders of the students’ special place in her heart will prove fruitful. “You have to love it,” she said of being a principal. “This honor is thrilling and exciting.” Epiphany of Our Lord’s Patricia Cody ruled over second place, while Ss. Neumann-Goretti High School’s Patricia Sticco and St. Nicholas of Tolentine’s Sister Mary Esther Carsele shared the third spot.

Neumann-Goretti Saints, left, march on as victors in the high school team category, just as the boys’ basketball team did at the Catholic League championship game. Catholic youth and leaders from St. Monica Parish, right, stand tall as members of the favorite CYO program.

Carl Arrigale keeps his head in the game as South Philly’s most notable coach.

of basketball.” Their tenacity has coupled with his philosophies, which he began to hone during his days at the now-defunct King of Peace School, formerly 1315 S. 26th St., and his Penn Charter secondary days playing for William “Speedy” Morris, to form perennially potent squads. Arrigale has rarely needed to rene his approach, as his ballers have given him stellar offensive and defensive displays, backing his stance that passion produces results. “If it isn’t broken, don’t x it,” he said of maintaining his focus and instructing his charges, many who have gone on to collegiate success. Next year’s team will seek to expand the school’s record 70-game league winning streak, but triumph or stumble, its members will receive their coach’s praise. “It’s great to be recognized, but this is a reection of the kids,” Arrigale said. “We’ve been able to accomplish too much through class and integrity.” Girard Academic Music Program’s baseball and basketball coach Art Kratchman claimed second, while Edward Bok High School boys’ basketball head Greg Frangipani banked third.

C

arl Arrigale dubs himself “a very competitive guy,” and 324 fallen foes can vouch for that description’s truthfulness. In 13 seasons, the resident of the 2900 block of South 15th Street has transformed the boys’ basketball team at Ss. Neumann-Goretti High School, 1736 S. 10th St., into a juggernaut, with his success garnering him the top high school coach award. “I give all the credit to my staff and the players,” the head man said of the personnel that has helped him to secure eight Catholic League, four city and two state titles. His East Passyunk Crossing athletes have responded exceptionally to what Arrigale terms “an unselsh, fast, fun brand

S

outh Philly is blessed with a variety of excellent high schools and its correspondingly excellent athletic programs. The Saints of Ss. Neumann-Goretti High School, 1736 S. 10th St., have competed against the best of the city and even the state, winning championships and turning out promising college prospects, making the school’s athletic program have the top team in the eyes of this year’s Readers’ Choice voters. “It makes me very proud to know that our community recognizes and appreciates what we’re doing as a Catholic institution,” Saints’ Athletic Director Pat DiPilla said while enjoying a playoff game at South Philadelphia High School, 2101 S. Broad St. DiPilla, along with the rest of the packed

gymnasium, was about to watch the Neumann-Goretti girls’ and boys’ basketball teams compete for their respective City titles. Though the girls fell short in their hardfought battle, the boys emerged victorious and added yet another accolade to their season, which already has seen them claim their fourth-consecutive Catholic League title. DiPilla stresses the significance of all sports as they contribute to the overall excellence of his Neumann-Goretti athletic program, which is primarily recognized as a basketball and baseball school. “The overall theme is involvement,” he said. “No matter what, we want you involved. That’s why they call us the Neumann-Goretti family.” The Girard Academic Music Program Pioneers scored second while the Edward W. Bok Technical High School Wildcats and the Southern Rams played into a tie for third.

It starts with fun

the girls’ basketball team, said. Winning, of course, adds to the positive experience. The girls’ basketball program wrapped up a very successful winter campaign highlighted by the junior varsity (fifthand sixth-graders) group winning the Dan Perillo Tournament while the varsity (seventh- and eighth-graders) won the NeumannGoretti Tournament and landed a runner-up accolade in the Region Six playoffs. But earning the top prize from the South Philly Review readers provides the perfect finishing touch. “We are just ecstatic over this award,” Mulvihill said. “We are always looking to get better and always looking to grow.” St. Richard scored second-place recognition while St. Nicholas of Tolentine netted third at the polls.

He’s a lifer

Y

oung, aspiring athletes need a strong foundation to help them to develop into future high school varsity standouts. There are many different paths to choose from, but the Catholic Youth Organization tends to be a popular starting point. Volunteer coaches teach children the basics while their parents cheer from the sidelines. But there can only be one winner among the readers, and that title belongs to St. Monica, 1714 Ritner St. Athletic Director Mike Mulvihill was eager to share the uplifting news. “I was very excited,” he said. “I immediately called a couple of the other coaches.” The year-round program — minus the summer hiatus — offers a smorgasbord of sports that includes football, volleyball, basketball, baseball and softball. No matter the season, enjoyment is the main focal point among coaches, players and parents. “At this age, it’s supposed to be about having fun,” Mulvihill, who also coaches

Readers’ Choice 2012 the park in this year’s voting for the No. 1 spot in Philly sports fans’ hearts. A 12-time All-Star and current resident of Cooperstown, N.Y.’s Baseball Hall of Fame, Schmidt anchored the Phillies’ offense and defense, winning 10 Gold Gloves and three National League MVP awards. To this day, he is considered among the best third basemen ever to play the game. These days, Schmidt spends his time hosting fishing tournaments and marketing his brand of wine, both of which raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Philadelphia fans will never forget him, and no Phillies player will ever again wear his retired No. 20 uniform. It may be just as long before another athlete takes his top spot in the Readers’ Choice awards. The Flyers’ Bobby Clarke skated to second while Charles Barkley, Joe Frazier and Chase Utley competed for third.

A Scoop of fans

D

uring the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament, many fans root for the teams that will help them win the office pool. Others like supporting a favorite team or player. Syracuse University answers the calling of both categories as the Orange, the No. 1 seed in the East, could be penciled in as a Final Four team and possible national champion. The squad’s starting lineup includes top local college athlete Antonio “Scoop” Jardine. When his team takes the court 3:10 this afternoon against No. 16 seed University of North Carolina at Asheville in Pittsburgh (truTV), there might be a few local eyeballs glued to the screen. The Second Team All-Big East selection is ready to continue pleasing his local fan base. The floor general, who grew up on the 1800 block of South Taylor Street, draws plenty of attention on the court with his season averages of 8.3 points, 4.7 assists and 1.2 steals per game. The 6-foot-2 senior guard is focussed on helping Syracuse bounce back from its disappointing early Big East Tournament exit against Cincinnati, 71-68. His team is still ranked No. 2 in the nation with a 31-2 mark. Temple University senior and Southern grad Ramone Moore scored runner-up recogniGrays Ferry native Antonio “Scoop” Jardine hurdled to success as a top college athlete.

showed its pride in second while the Columbus Day Parade marched in third.

“We’re really trying to gear up for people who’ve never been here before,” Gilinger said. “I’m really excited about that.” Quartermaster Plaza splurged in second, while Snyder Plaza and Whitman Plaza both bargained for third.

e are South Philadelphia. It lives in our bodies,” Bob Shannon Jr., New Years Shooters and Mummers Association, president said of the Mummers Parade, winner of the best South Philadelphia tradition. Dating back to the early 1600s, the Mummers Parade has become a tradition in South Philadelphia, even before gaining this award from readers. When moving to South Philly, Swedish and English settlers took with them their New Year’s Day celebration. Visiting family and friends transformed into a parade of masqueraders and “shooters” bringing in good spirits for the new year. Although the parade was only made official in 1901, Shannon credits the people living in South Philly for keeping the tradition alive. “South Philadelphia is filled with traditional types of people,” he said. “It’s hard, especially with all the expenses, but it takes a lot of backing from the neighborhood and the community, which we got.” The parade, held on New Year’s Day, begins along designated spots on South Broad Street and continues up to City Hall. With four distinct divisions —Comics, Fancies, String Bands and Fancy Brigades, the annual event brings thousands of visitors and performers from around the nation. A doctor from Massachusetts is frequently at practices for the String Band, in addition to members from California and Virginia, Shannon said. He encourages anyone to come out to enjoy or perform. “Anybody with a fancy costume can join the Fancy Brigade. All reed, string, and percussion players are welcomed to join as well.” The Italian Festival

ast Passyunk Avenue, a premiere dining destination and shopping area, splurged as best shopping district in South Philly. Known as the cheesesteak home base, East Passyunk Avenue offers many other awardwinning and famous eateries, including readers’ choice award first-place winners Cantina Los Caballitos, Fuel and Birra. Restaurant selections vary from Japanese to Mexican to authentic Italian, fancying a wide array of modern or traditional tastes. More than 150 of the businesses in the shopping district are independently owned, keeping most establishments unique to the area. Neighborhood residents appreciate the gardening and home improvement shops, fitness centers, clothing stores, food markets, hair salons and barber shops offered, all of which cater to everyday needs in a very close radius. “There are so many great places in such a short walk,” East Passyunk Avenue Business Improvement District’s Executive Director Renee Gilinger said, Facebook and Twitter have played a major factor in creating better business along the avenue and directing patrons to events such as its monthly Second Saturday, as well as its annual Flavors of the Avenue April 28 and Car Show and Street Festival July 29. “[Social media] is just so effective in getting the word out about our businesses and events,” Gilinger said. “A lot of these are free community events and we want to let as many people know as possible.” Gilinger is pleased to announce the development of a mobile website and phone application to further promote events, provide directories, links to SEPTA transportation, maps and more, all for the convenience of the customers.

ast year, Readers’ Choice voters thought that best hair/nail salon should be a category on the list. With the addition to the ballot, Headhunters Hair Design took the win for the best salon in South Philly. Change can be a little scary, but it’s usually for the better, Nancy Melciore, owner of Headhunters, 1718 E. Passyunk Ave., said. “I walk in everyday excepting the girls to change something up, for example, but the changes are beneficial to both the salon and the customers,” Melciore said. Headhunters itself is a product of change as Melciore bought the salon from a previous owner 15 years ago. “I had another place, Cheekers for Hair at 1500 E. Passyunk, but we bought this one and remodeled everything.” Melciore said of the current location. Headhunters delivers traditional salon services, such as haircuts, coloring, styling, perms, relaxers and makeup application, to a wide range of customers. Stylists, Amanda Maratea and Lauren Averill agree that the customers at Headhunters vary drastically. “We accommodate everyone,” Maratea said. “We have kids to 90-year-old customers. New people from the neighborhood to people who’ve lived here for years. We have all types of different people really.” And Melciore attributes this to the atmosphere at Headhunters. “We offer a relaxed but professional setting,” Melciore said. Cutting Point Hair Designs and Violet Salon won second and third place respectively.

Au revoir

I

t was January 1972. President Richard Nixon had Henry Kissinger trying to negotiate an end to the war in Vietnam. The Watergate break-in of Democratic Party headquarters was in the early planning stages, and an old ragtime song of Scott Joplin’s had been rediscovered and zoomed to No. 3 on the charts. It was a time just prior to a restaurant renaissance in Philadelphia. You only had to go back about 10 years to when practically the only two major Center City restaurants were Arthur’s Steak House and the PubTiki. But in ’70, Georges Perrier opened a small 30-seat restaurant at 13th and Spruce called Le Bec-Fin. It soon became famous for its classic French cuisine and fixed-price menu costing a budget-busting $42.50 per person. From the first time I heard about it, my fantasy was to take my wife to dine at Le Bec-Fin. In ’72, we had been married eight years and had two young children. My wife was a stay-at-home mom and we were making it on the salary of a GS-11 civil servant. It was going to take a while to save the money to afford to have our dream meal. In those days, we believed in paying with cash for our entertainment, not credit cards. I saved the money and got us a reservation by calling almost a month in advance. Finally, we were ready for our dream dining experience. On a blustery, cold night on Saturday, Jan. 29, ’72, we entered Le Bec-Fin, located in a town house at 1312 Spruce St. Couples chatted quietly at nearby tables. We were seated by the door. The food was marvelous. The owner, a short, stubby Frenchman, was not yet the toast of Philadelphia he was to become. Perrier was going to be married the following week and he was in an ebullient mood. He circulated the dining room, wearing a white chef’s apron, and chatted amiably with the other diners and then spotted us out of the corner of his eye. Perrier had noticed that as a couple left by the door where we were seated, my wife had reacted to the sudden burst of cold air. He quickly came over to us. You caught a draft, he said to my wife, and I must apologize for your discomfort. Both of us tried to minimize what, after all, was a small occurrence in a grand evening, but Perrier was having none of it. I must make you a

special drink, he insisted, some raspberry cognac. My wife replied she much rather have another of the restaurant’s luscious pastries. You shall have both, Perrier said. You can tell this happened a long time ago. For these days, we would not be so bold and usually skip dessert altogether. The other patrons were staring at us. In restaurants such as Le Bec-Fin, you always assume the other diners must be celebrities. Who were we?, they wondered. Perrier mixed the drinks with the precision of an alchemist in the 17th century, and poured the pink-tinted liquid into two brandy snifters. We drank a toast to Perrier, wished him success on his upcoming marriage (that didn’t work out so well) and off he disappeared into the kitchen. Later he returned with a Grand Marnier soufflé for us to share. We dipped our spoons into the heavenly froth, pinching ourselves to make sure we weren’t dreaming. Like Cinderella’s magical night, our evening too had to end. We rode home on a bus and wondered how many of Perrier’s patrons went home on public transit. Our bus driver had an amazing likeness to comedian Flip Wilson and he entertained us all the way home. The years passed. Le Bec-Fin had moved to 1523 Walnut St. Both my wife and I now work part-time. Our days of dining at Perrier’s restaurant were limited to one evening when we had a gift certificate (we still had to add more than $100 to pay the tab). We also had been to a lunch during Restaurant Week when three courses only ran us $20. The highlight of our gift certificate night was running into a friend who handled the famed cheese and pastry carts for Perrier. He made sure we carried home a doggy bag of Le Bec-Fin pastries that night. Our kids are now grown. Neither had ever dined at Le Bec-Fin. We decided to treat them to lunch last fall for a Restaurant Week special. The three-course meal is only a pale imitation of the experience, but still it was Le Bec-Fin. Afterwards, my wife cornered Perrier outside the restaurant. He talked wistfully about how times had changed. He didn’t know whether there was a place for Le Bec-Fin anymore. As it turned out, that was the last time we would ever dine in the landmark restaurant. Recently he handed the culinary palace over to his successor. The restaurant is currently closed for renovations. It will reopen and hope to create food fantasies for future generations. As for us, I always tell my wife, in my best Humphrey Bogart voice, “we’ll always have January 1972.” SPR Comment at southphillyreview.com/opinion/ cardella.

Rebirth cinema

Ring in the season of buds and blooms with films that give new life to their characters. By R. Kurt Osenlund

W

Movie Reviewer

hen approaching a spring-themed film feature, the first impulse is to gear it around the fertile and floral imagery associated with the season, opting to look at movies that reflect its colors and hallmarks. But spring also is a time of rebirth, a theme that just so happens to be about as popular in cinema as good versus evil. Be them superheroes, mutants, gangsters or reincarnated uncles, the characters in these films run the born-again gamut, and any one of their tales would serve as a fine way to usher in the season.

Orlando (1992) In director Sally Potter’s adaptation of Virginia Woolf’s genderbending novel “Orlando: A Biography,” a still-emerging Tilda Swinton stars as the androgynous title character, a nobleman born into the Elizabethan Age who promises the dying queen that he’ll never grew old. Not only does he keep his promise, but after centuries he awakes as a female, and is forced to fight for land ownership rights. The lush film netted Oscar nods for costumes and art direction, and featured raconteur Quentin Crisp as Elizabeth I, further blurring the project’s gender lines.

Spider-Man (2002)

Groundhog Day (1993)

My Fair Lady (1964) The ultimate makeover film, this Audrey Hepburn-led translation of the popular stage musical “Pygmalion” paved the road for everything from “Pretty Woman” to “Miss Congeniality,” typifying the cinematic tale of a wrong-side-of-the-tracks gal going from ugly duckling to high-society swan. Groomed by Rex Harrison’s arrogant professor to pass as a duchess, Hepburn’s Eliza Doolittle is nearly as iconic as her Holly Golightly.

The Fly (1986) One of the more literal examples of David Cronenberg’s fascination with anatomical manipulation, this slimy remake of the 1950s sci-fi favorite sees Jeff Goldblum slowly become an entirely new being, created after Goldblum’s character’s DNA fuses with that of a housefly in a freak science experiment. Influencing later works like “Black Swan,” Cronenberg’s “The Fly” is probably remembered most for the degeneration that leads to new life, like the icky loss of fingernails (among other things).

V for Vendetta (2005) Otherwise known as the film for which Natalie Portman shaved her head, this supremely well-made adaptation of the popular graphic novel takes place in a dystopian U.K., where a young woman (Portman), the daughter of murdered revolutionaries, is taken under the dark wing of Hugo Weaving’s V. Broken down, then re-released to help lead the resistance, a newly bald Portman emerges a driven freedom fighter, tellingly baptized in a pivotal rooftop rain scene.

Marwencol (2010) A stunning art documentary that defies description and belief, the magical “Marwencol” profiles the work of reformed photographer Mark Hogancamp, who began as a gifted sketch artist, then had his talents robbed from him during an attack that yielded serious brain damage. Unable to draw, but still tirelessly creative, Hogancamp blooms again as an obsessive builder of a scale-model society, which he later photographs for exhibitions — in women’s heels. Yeah, it’s a must-see.

Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives (2011) Puzzling and bewitching its viewers in equal measure, Apichatpong Weerasethakul’s Thai tale of reincarnation sees its titular protagonist (Thanapat Saisaymar) wind down in the last days of his life, reconnecting with his dead wife and a son who now inhabits the form of a red-eyed monkey. Was Uncle Boonmee once an ox? Or perhaps the princess who’s pleasured by a catfish? There are more suggestions than answers in this deeply meditative Cannes hit, which unfolds at a snail’s pace, but offers rich rewards.

A Christmas Carol (1938) ‘Tis not the season for Dickens’s holiday classic, but is there a better tale of rebirth in our pop-culture library? And, for that matter, is there a better filmed version than the one Joseph L. Mankiewicz produced, with Reginald Owen in the spotlight? Certainly not. Ebeneezer Scrooge needs a new existence like he needs air, and thanks to a trio of ghosts ... well, you know the story. Scrooge’s awakening as a greed-free human never ages a day, and in its own way, it, too, is reborn each year.

Bill Murray has perhaps never been better than he is in Harold Ramis’s modern classic, which follows an egotistical weatherman as he lives through the same day over and over again, trapped in Punxsutawney for perpetual groundhog shadow play. The tale of jerk redemption has been chewed up and spit out more times than Murray’s Phil Connors smacks his alarm clock, but here, a beautifully realized conceit gives it rare distinction. After repeatedly attempting suicide, then finally using his curse as a gift with which to court his sweetie (Andie MacDowell), Connors begins anew as an appreciative life-embracer.

Well, no one said negative rebirths were off limits. In this stunning French crime drama, one of the best movies of its year, 19-year-old Malik (Tahar Rahim) enters prison as an illiterate innocent charged for a minor crime. But soon he’s climbing the ranks of a mafia circle run from behind bars, and after six brutal years, he’s but a shadow of the soft young man he was. The character development in this gripping film is masterful, and watching the transformation leaves you both impressed and unnerved.

SOUTh PHILLY REVIEW I march 15, 2012

Every superhero film essentially boasts a story of rebirth, but few have been more vivid than that of Sam Raimi’s “SpiderMan,” which rendered the mutant maturation of Peter Parker with bold colors and palpable energy. The trilogy ultimately faltered, but not so much that we needed a reboot, which hits theaters in mere months. Raimi’s vision and Tobey Maguire’s endearing portrayal led to a Parker — and thus, a Spider-Man— to root for.

A Prophet (2009)

ear South Philadelphians, You are spoiled. What have I given you, two, maybe three, miserable days this time? I must have found the previous two years of snow tough to top or have wanted you to see my reputation for harshness as slightly exaggerated. Whatever the reason, I have gone soft on you. You are days from beginning spring, the snobby season that loves taunting me. Go ahead and enjoy outdoor music, picnics, playgrounds and sports. I hear your Phillies should roll to another postseason run and that the Flyers and Sixers have shots, too. Remember, they all make their mark under me. Spring training? Come on, the Phils start in February! The Mayans predicted a huge global change will occur Dec. 21, so we may have seen the last of each other. It figures the world would be altered on MY solstice. Proceed. Your bitter buddy, Old Man Winter

ew seasons don’t only bring new wardrobes, but also new recipes. As the weather gets warmer, branch out by trying Marlyn Werner’s Creamy Spring Pasta, a scrumptious mixture of farfalle, peas, tomatoes, butter and crab. The resident of the 100 block of Durfor Street’s filling, low-cost and simple recipe is a safe fix for any spring family engagement. SPR Comment at southphillyreview.com/food-and-drink/recipes.

Marlyn’s Creamy Spring Pasta INGREDIENTS:

1 pound of farfalle pasta 1 10-ounce package of frozen peas 1 tablespoon of butter 1 15-ounce can of stewed tomatoes, drained 1 cup of heavy cream 1/2 teaspoon of salt 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper 1/2 pound of crabmeat, coarsely chopped

DIRECTIONS:

Cook the pasta in lightly salted boiling water for six minutes. Add the peas and continue cooking for four minutes.

Melt the butter in a skillet over high heat. Add the tomatoes, breaking them up with a wooden spoon. Add the cream, salt and pepper. Lower the heat to medium-high and simmer for five minutes. Add the crabmeat. Drain the pasta and peas. Toss with the sauce.

sliced them quite thin. He smoked eggplant and cauliflower that he turned into a soufflé-like stuffing and tucked it and jasmine rice inside the eggplant sheet and rolled it. Chickpeas and an herb-infused olive oil sauce surrounded the braciole, which was one of the finest vegan dishes my taste buds had ever met. I sipped a glass of Primitivo ($12) a rustic red wine from Puglia that the bartender recommended. Jacoby’s sticking toffee pudding ($8) served warm with a dollop of Bourbon vanilla ice cream was a glorious sweet ending to one fine meal. I guess she uses soy and coconut milks to create the creamy consistency, but I think it is just magic. There are a number of vegetarian and vegan restaurants in Center City. Vedge

bar, sipped a Bombay sapphire martini ($12.50) and enjoyed reading the bill of fare. I enjoyed the in-house baked bread — similar in taste and texture to challah but without the eggs or butter — with an herb-infused olive oil. I do not know how Landau and Jacoby create creamy dishes without milk, cream or butter. I do know that the smoked vichyssoise ($7), which was on the “dirt list,” was a masterpiece of tastes and textures. The “dirt list” is an assortment of changing specials using ingredients reaped within one day. The flavor of smoked potatoes, along with the natural sweetness of pureed leeks, was astonishing. I could swear the small mound of flaked potatoes in the bowl was smoked whitefish salad from a top deli. I grew up eating grated radishes or turnips tossed with oil as an appetizer. This Viennese creation, along with other radishes, was a staple in our home. Landau’s fancy radish “sushi” ($8) was a whimsical collection of these root beauties either pickled or roasted. Red small rolls of watermelon radish were lovingly pickled and shared the long, black serving vessel with finely grated daikon, which looked like a thin noodle. Small, round whole black radishes were included with small white ones and a tamari sauce that I was literally enjoying by dipping my finger into it. I wanted to try the hearts of palm crepe. I asked one of the bartenders for her opinion. “The crepe is light, but I like the braciole ($13),” she said Landau roasted small eggplants and

ne of my earliest food memories is walking into my grandmother’s kitchen. The aroma of cinnamon and sugar was prevalent and I enjoyed helping her. I clearly recall helping her to fill the deep, white porcelain sink with cold water to rinse fresh spinach leaves to remove all of the grit. My mother never had to say “Phyllis, eat your vegetables.” I have loved nearly all of them, from green beans to asparagus, ever since I cut my first tooth. I think there are a number of reasons why Vedge, a new vegan restaurant on Locust Street, is successful. Obviously there are scores of vegans in Center City, but we also have learned more and more about food allergies in recent years. Gluten-free has entered the lexicon. Vedge is owned and operated by the husband-and-wife team of chef Rich Landau and pastry chef Kate Jacoby. They have succeeded in elevating vegan fare into new culinary heights, using farm fresh local ingredients and creating lovely dishes — to look at and eat — at moderate prices. Vedge is housed in a 19th-century town home that housed Deux Cheminées previously.

The stained glass windows are still intact as is the warm wood trim and the fireplace in the lounge. I dined alone at the cool, white marble

■ Spaghetti with Crushed ■ Black Pepper and Pecorino Cheese (Spaghetti Cacio e Pepe)

Ingredients:

Salt, to taste for the pasta water 2 tablespoons of whole black peppercorns, or more to taste 1 pound of spaghetti 1-1/2 cups of freshly grated Pecorino Romano, or more to taste

Directions: Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.

■ Lamb Stew ■ Ingredients: 3 pounds of lamb shoulder, cut into 1-1/2-inch cubes, patted dry with paper towels Enough Canola oil to coat the bottom of a 5-quart pot Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste 1 large onion, diced 2 leeks, with some green, sliced

Directions: Heat the oil over medium-high working in batches, brown the lamb on all sides. Remove the meat to a large bowl with a slotted spoon. Add the onion, leeks and carrots to the pot. Sauté them for about eight minutes, or just until the onion begins to wilt slightly. Return the lamb to the pot. Add the remaining ingredients, bring to a boil, lower the heat to simmer, cover the pot and cook, stirring from time to time, for about 90 minutes. Check if the lamb is fork tender at this time. It may require another 30 minutes of cooking, depending upon the quality of the meat. Warm six bowls. Bring the stew to the table and serve it directly from the pot. Serve the Lamb Stew with boiled potatoes. I use Yukon golds in this recipe, counting one medium to large potato per person. Place the potatoes in a large, warm bowl, add a bit of soft butter and chopped fresh parsley if desired. SPR Comment at southphillyreview.com/food-anddrink/features.

eware the Ides of March.” It is one of the most famous sentences penned by William Shakespeare in his great tragedy, “Julius Caesar.” Today is the anniversary of that fateful day when Caesar was brutally stabbed to death in the Roman Forum. Marc Anthony later eulogized Caesar when he said, “Friends, Romans and countrymen, lend me your ears! I come to bury Caesar not to praise him.” Two days later, the city will be filled with revelers celebrating Saint Patrick’s Day. These days could not be more disparate. Roman food is Etruscan food. Irish fare takes its culinary cues from the waters that surround the Emerald Isle and the sheep that graze throughout all the counties. The Italians and the Irish have had a long, deep relationship with America and Philadelphia. It would be fun to pull out the Yellow Pages, if I still have one, and count the number of Italian restaurants, butcher shops, coffee shops, grocery stores and specialty stores located in the city. The same would be fun for the number of Irish pubs that dot the City of Brotherly Love

and Sisterly Affection. I don’t want to hear how terrible Irish cooking is. This is totally false. There are bad cooks everywhere. I know a number of Italian-American women who are dreadful cooks. Let’s visit the Eternal City, courtesy of Lidia Bastianich. Her recipe is from “Lidia’s Italy.” And we’ll travel to the beautiful country, which gave the world James Joyce, William Butler Yeats, President John F. Kennedy, Guinness and yes, Lamb Stew. It’s my recipe.

4 large carrots, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks 1 32-ounce package of beef stock 1 to 1-1/2 cups of water 2 heaping tablespoons of tomato paste Generous sprinkling of dried thyme Boiled potatoes to serve with the stew

Grind the peppercorns very coarsely, preferably crushing them in a mortar with a pestle or in a spice grinder. Warm up a big bowl for mixing and serving the pasta — use some of the pasta water to heat the bowl if you like. Cook the spaghetti until al dente. Quickly lift it from the pot with tongs, let it drain for an instant, then drop it into the warm bowl. Immediately scatter a cup of the grated cheese and most of the pepper on the pasta and toss it in quickly. As you mix, sprinkle over spoonfuls of hot water from the cooking pot to moisten and amalgamate the pasta and condiments — add more pepper or cheese to taste. Serve right away, while the spaghetti is very hot. Serves six.

The senior guard out of South Philadelphia High School, 2101 S. Broad St., will strive to help the Owls, the Atlantic 10 Conference’s regular season champion, to slay either California or South Florida tomorrow at Nashville, Tenn.’s Bridgestone Arena. The 9:50 p.m. second-round clash will offer the 24-7 North Philadelphia squad a chance for redemption, as Friday’s 77-71 conference quarterfinal loss to the University of Massachusetts somewhat sullied a regular season run that included Jan. 4’s 7873 win over Duke at the Wells Fargo Center, 3601 S. Broad St. The second-leading

scorer in the 14-team league at 17.7 points per contest, Moore totaled 40 points in last year’s two Big Dance games and will work to advance coach Frank Dunphy’s charges to the Sweet 16 for the first time since 2001.

Massachusetts sophomore guard Jesse Morgan, who spent part of his high school career at West Passyunk’s Prep Charter High School, 1928 Point Breeze Ave., finished third for the Minutemen at 10.2 points per game and stung Temple with 21 in Atlantic City. His 22-11 unit traveled to Mississippi State Tuesday and advanced with a 101-96 win. Morgan finished with eight points and six rebounds.

A

northern New Jersey man was killed in the passenger’s seat of a vehicle in Queen Village early Saturday following some sort of argument. Adolph Bradford, 25, of Edgewater Park, N.J. was riding shotgun while a 32-yearold man was in the driver’s seat of a green Infiniti at 3:56 a.m. along the 900 block of South Columbus Boulevard, Officer Jill Russell of Police Public Affairs said. It was unclear if the vehicle was parked or on the road when Bradford was stuck in the back with a bullet and his friend was hit in the neck. Bradford was pronounced dead at 4:05 a.m. at the scene while the driver was taken to Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in stable condition, Russell said. There were no suspects at press time. To report information, call Homicide Division at 215-686-3334 or visit phillypolice.com/forms.

A man was ambushed and shot in the middle of a Point Breeze street Monday. At 8:29 p.m., a 19-year-old was walking up a home’s front steps on the 1200 block of South 19th Street when four men — wearing dark-colored clothing with hoods covering their heads and faces — exited a gray sedan, possibly a Chevy Impala, with tinted windows and fired multiple shots with one striking his right hand, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. They fled south on 19th in the auto. Police transported him to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, Tolliver said. The gunfire also damaged the front façade of a few homes, Tolliver said. Police recovered ballistics evidence at the scene, but the motive was unknown at press time. To report information, call South Detectives at 215-685-1635 or visit phillypolice. com/forms.

Bone-shattering While walking home in Grays Ferry, a man suffered a broken femur as a result of a gunshot wound to his leg early Tuesday. The 33-year-old was on the 2100 block of Marston Terrace at 4 a.m. when an unknown man pointed a black automatic handgun at him, made an unrecognizable statement and called him a derogatory name. The man pushed the weapon away,

but the gunman fired at least twice striking him once in the left thigh. Police transported him to HUP to undergo surgery. The shooter, whose description was unknown at press time, fled in an unknown direction, Tolliver said, but police recovered ballistics evidence at the scene. To report information, call South Detectives at 215-685-1635 or visit phillypolice. com/forms.

Cash flow Police released footage of a man, who stole money from an account at a Quartermaster Plaza bank last month. A woman forgot to remove her card after making a withdrawal at Bank of America, 2330 W. Oregon Ave., at 9:30 a.m. Feb. 6, according to the Police Public Affairs Unit. When the suspect arrived at the ATM, he made multiple transactions totaling $700 and fled in a silver vehicle. The suspect was described as black with a dark complexion, age 50, having a mustache and a light beard; and wearing goldtrimmed glasses, a gray sweatshirt with logos on the front and back. To report information, call South Detectives at 215-685-1635 or visit phillypolice. com/forms.

Swiped from their pockets Two men were held up at gunpoint in Whitman early Sunday. A 23- and 24-year-old man were walking along the 400 block of Jackson Street at 12:26 a.m. when a man pointed a long, black shotgun at the older victim and said, “You know what it is. Come out of your pockets” before taking his cell phone, digital camera, driver’s license and $15, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. Meanwhile, the accomplice swiped a cell phone, ID, bank card, Access card and $370 from the other victim. The gunman was described as black with a dark complexion, 6-foot-1, 200 pounds; having a medium build; and wearing a black jacket with tan fur on the hood, a black skully cap and dark-colored jeans. The accomplice was described as black, age 20 to 21, 5-foot-10, clean shaven; wearing a black jacket and black sweatpants; and being nicknamed “Lil.” To report information, call South Detectives at 215-685-1635 or visit phillypolice. com/forms.

Thank You Holy Spirit and St. Joseph for Prayers

Answered M.D. prayer to the blessed virgin

(never known to fail). O Most Beautiful flower of Mt. Carmel, fruitful Vine Splendor of Heaven, Blessed Mother of the Son of God, Immaculate Virgin, assist me in my necessity. O Star of the Sea, help me and show me here You are my Mother. O Holy Mary, Mother of God, Queen of Heaven and Earth, I humbly beseech You from the bottom of my heart to succor my necessity (Make Request). There are none that can withstand your power. O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to Thee (3 times). Holy Mary, I place this cause in your hands (3 times). Say this prayer for 3 consecutive days. Then you must publish it and it will be granted to you. D.M.
