Philly Finds Vol. 63

It’s that time of the week – time for Philly Finds.

Tomorrow night I’m going to an event being put on by a local skincare company and I’ll be sure to report back. But until then, here’s what occurred in the last week…


Equally a luxury and necessity for me is an Italian dinner on a Friday night. There’s just something about winding down after a long week in a dimly lit room, with a bottle of wine and hearty plate of pasta in front of you, begging to be dug into. That need was met this past weekend at Panorama wine bar, located in Old City. Panorama first came to my attention because my fabulous friend Kristen does their social media, as well as for Revolution House.

They offer half or full plates of pasta, which was a great option after our first round of starters. Normally I can easily clean off a large plate of pasta, but after our appetizers a half plate of pasta was absolutely perfect. And if you’re GF, they also offer gluten-free pasta.

Catching up with friends over Pinot Grigio and bites of burrata – it’s a simple pleasure not to be taken for granted.

Michael Schulson’s latest creation is here – Samuel’s, a home for American Jewish inspired food.  I was having dinner at Giuseppe and Sons, whic is located just below, that evening and was so excited to see the new space. The story dates back to Schulson’s “Poppy,” who came over from Russia and Poland to the Bronx and opened a kosher butcher shop. And while I did not eat at Samuel’s, I definitely want to make a point to go there soon to dine. I can never resists a Schulson restaurant.

The menu includes classic deli items such as pastrami, corned beef and brisket sandwiches, and pierogi, bagels, chicken pot pie and more. My mouth is watering.

Talk soon! <3
