Restaurant notes: Guy Fieri in town; Tony Clark's in Delaware

"Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives" is shooting; a chef returns to the line.

Restaurant notes: Guy Fieri in town; Tony Clark's in Delaware


Guy Fieri has been in town this week, doing segments at a few joints for Food Network's  Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. He visited Good Dog Bar in Center City, Honey's Sit 'N Eat in Northern Liberties, Memphis Taproom in Port Richmond/Kensington, and the Pineville Tavern in Bucks County. No scheduled dates for the episodes. (UPDATED)

New chef at the Wilmington landmark Harry's Savoy Grill  is Tony Clark, who spent 10 years as a private chef, as reported yesterday by Patty Talorico of the Wilmington News-Journal. Clark's last shindig was an engagement party on Washington Square for Chelsea Clinton and Marc Mezvinsky. Clark was one of the crew back in the 1980s and 1990s at the Four Seasons and briefly owned Tony Clark on the corner of Broad and Sansom Streets, where the TD Bank is now. For a trip down Memory Lane, here's an Inquirer Magazine profile I did back in 1999.
