Dining bites

Healthful and not-so-healthful info.

Dining bites


South Philly natural-foods goddess Christina Pirello will be a regular contributor to The Huffington Post. Her first blog post, titled, "Why It’s So Hard Not to Be Fat," went up Wednesday.

A Full Plate in Northern Liberties holds its third annual rib cook-off at 1 p.m. Sept. 12. Details here.

Prime Rib at the Warwick is doing a $35 prix-fixe menu every night through Sept. 25.

All September, Bistrot La Minette  in Queen Village is doing a three-course prix-fixe for $30, or $42 with two wines.

To update my post from early May: Mike Stollenwerk (of Little Fish) has released a draft menu for his new spot fish (cq, lowercase), coming to 1708 Lombard St. in "mid- to late-September," as he puts it. Here's the draft menu. He's fine-tuning a late-night menu. Rob Holloway, previously chef at Lastest Dish, will be fish's sous chef.

Local 44/Memphis Taproom's Brendan Hartranft does not want to mention opening dates for Resurrection Ale House, replacing Yello'Bar in Grays Ferry, because "I have a punch list as long as my arm." In other words, though they're gunning for Sept. 9, shaddap if they're later because they want to do it right. He promises a rotating draft list plus an "esoteric bottle list" and Natty Boh in cans for a buck-75.
