Philly brings home the bacon


No one could ever accuse Philly of being a health-food capital.

Not after four restaurants appear Monday, Feb. 25 (7 p.m.) on the new series United States of Bacon, which is shown on the Discovery TV-owned Destination America channel.

The four are:

PYT in the Piazza at Schmidt's in Northern Liberties with its Bloody Mary burger and its new bacon taco shell.
