Crumb Tracker: Where did Craig LaBan eat?

Green tomato gazpacho, king crab pasta, chorizo and scamorza pizza.

Where Inquirer restaurant critic Craig LaBan ate last week.  

1. King crab pasta with Calabrian chili butter sauce: Toothy house pasta, delicately butter-poached crustacean, and a boldly spiced chili butter help make this a new signature dish for one of Philly's celeb chefs.

2. Chorizo and scamorza pizza: From one of the new wood-fired pizza palaces in town, there's an extra crackle to the crust that distinguishes this "Sicilian"-style pie from the softer Neapolitan variety. It also comes with a fantastic rooftop patio view.

3. Green tomato gazpacho with Caputo Bros. burrata: A bracing tartness amps the milky sweetness of the creamy burrata, and tastes like a midsummer's garden in a bowl.
