Bud and Marilyn’s – Philadelphia, PA

Posted on

When Celebrity Chef Robert Irvine said on Small Bites Radio that Chef Marcie Turney‏ is one of Philadelphia’s best chefs, I finally took notice. The name was familiar, and I was aware of the restaurant group that Chef Marcie and her partner Valerie Safran ran, and who knows why, but I had never been to one of them. Well I should be ashamed of myself. I like to call myself a foodie, and was missing a big portion of why Philadelphia is receiving so many accolades nationally due to our wonderful restaurant scene with Chef Marcie being one of the driving forces and reasons why.

I decided that my birthday would be a good excuse to make my first visit to one of Chef Marcie’s restaurants. If she is indeed that talented, then why not go during a time that should be celebrated and special. Well I can honestly say, she and her team did not disappoint in the least. The choice was made to dine at Bud and Marilyn’s. It was the chosen destination since I would have my 6 year old son join us, and the menu looked approachable for all palates. As soon as we stepped inside and saw multiple families dining there, I knew things were off to a good start.

From start to finish it was an impeccable experience at Bud and Marilyn’s. The décor is simple and tasteful. The service was flawless. The drinks were strong and mixed to perfection. The food was amazing, and dessert delectable. I can’t say enough of how much fun and how wonderful the meal was. Now don’t get me wrong, Bud and Marilyn’s will not be for everyone. We had American comfort food at its finest, and this type of cuisine is not for everyone. Chef Marcie does this style well, and I am now intrigued to try her other restaurants to sample her versions of Italian, Mexican, and Mediterranean. Give them try, and maybe you will become a fan of Chef Marcie like me and Chef Robert Irvine.

Below is what I had:
Warm Pretzel Rolls, Thai Style Mussels, Fried Cheese Curds, Soft Shell Crabs, Fried Chicken, and Funfetti Cake. They were ALL delicious as could be!

Small Bites – Episode 112

D and L Coffee Service Inc. presents the #1 listed “Food Radio show Philadelphia”, Small Bites with Donato Marino and Derek Timm of Bluejeanfood.com on Wildfire Radio this Sunday, June 2nd at 635pm EST with a stellar lineup and Courier-Post’s John Howard-Fusco will be in studio as special guest co-host.

We are happy to welcome award-winning creators of the popular travel inspired cooking blog Husbands that Cook, Ryan Alvarez and Adam Merrinwho have written their very first vegetarian cookbook: HUSBANDS THAT COOK (St. Martin’s Press Griffin). Written with the same endearing, can-do spirit of their blog, the husbands present more than 120 brand-new recipes―plus some greatest hits from the site―that yield delicious results every time. Each entry in Husbands That Cook is a reminder of how simple and satisfying vegetarian meal-making can be, from hearty main dishes and sides to healthy snacks and decadent desserts and drinks. Ryan and Adam also outline common pantry items and everyday tools you’ll need to fully stock your kitchen. Whether you’re cooking for one or feeding the whole family, this book is chock-full of great creative recipes for every day of the week, all year long. Adam is one of the founding members of the indie-rock band The 88 and Ryan sings classical music and acts in TV shows and commercials.

In studio we are ecstatic to be joined by Jessica Jenkins the Director of Marketing & Communications for FCM Hospitality. FCM Hospitality is a Philadelphia-based hospitality and entertainment company, managing bars, restaurants and seasonal pop-ups throughout the region. The company is owned by Avram Hornik, a leader with more than 20 years in the hospitality industry, who has created some of the area’s most popular permanent and temporary venues in the city. Jessica will talk about their newest venture Craft Hall which is an experiential dining, drinking and entertainment concept. It is home to Mainstay Independent Brewery, Lost Bread Co. Bakery, a fully furnished kitchen, two bars and several seating areas. Guests will get to see how the beer is brewed, bread is baked, and food is cooked along with other interactive elements like a playground for kids and adults alike, lawn games, a live music stage and more. They invite guests to watch how the flour is milled, meat is smoked, and beer is brewed, providing a unique experience and better understanding of the foods’ origins and craftsmanship that went into creating them. She will also chat about one of Philly’s favorite waterfront destinations Morgan’s Pier which is Philadelphia’s backyard beer garden. Morgan’s Pier is named after George C. Morgan, a construction worker on the Benjamin Franklin Bridge 85 years ago, who is credited as being the first person to cross the bridge. He defied his boss’ orders and shimmied across the wires before the deck was completed. Each season, Morgan’s Pier invites a different celebrated chef to take over the kitchen with their own version of a chef-hosted backyard barbecue, allowing a larger population of Philadelphia and its visitors to enjoy the casual cuisine while soaking up the outdoors and its scenery just steps from the Ben Franklin Bridge. In 2015, Morgan’s Pier was named “Most Popular Bar in Pennsylvania” by BuzzFeed. We can’t wait!

Hailing from NYC, and with celebrity fans such as Denis Leary, we are pleased to have on New York City Fire Department (FDNY) Lt. John Sierp out of Ladder 8 in Tribeca with his newest restaurant endeavor Home Base Bistro in Murray Hill. The New York native boasts multiple cooking championships and has been featured on a variety of prominent television shows including Food Network’s CHOPPED, The Rachael Ray Show, The Martha Stewart Show and has even served as a judge on Throwdown with Bobby Flay. John’s acclaimed cooking embody’s the spirit of New York: diverse, progressive, and timeless. His latest cullinary endeavour, Home Base, is a collaboration with the rising entertainment connoisseurs at One Creative Marketing Group. Dubbed as an “American Bistro” the cuisine will represent a mix of John’s famous dishes and new boundary pushing menu items devised specifically for this restaurant.

Circling back to Philly and representing Philadelphia in season 12 of Ink Master: Battle Of The Sexes which premieres Tuesday, June 11th at 10 pm EST on Paramount Network Viacom we can’t wait to talk to Fon from Money & Ink Tattoo & Body Piercing Studio. This season, titled Ink Master: Battle Of The Sexes, features teams of male and female artists competing against each other in the ultimate battle for a chance to win $100,000, an editorial feature in Inked and the coveted “Ink Master” title. In addition, past contestants and fan favorites will return throughout the season to coach the teams in various challenges during the competition. Throughout the competition, the artists will be tested on their technical skills along with their on-the-spot creativity, as they must conceive and execute original tattoos on “human canvases.” Each episode will focus on a different and distinct style of tattooing and, as always, while the artists’ masterpieces will last a lifetime, so will their mistakes. Contestants face a tough panel made up of Dave Navarro (musician, filmmaker and artist) and renowned tattoo artists Chris Núñez (Handcrafted Tattoo And Art Gallery) and Oliver Pecker (Elm Street Tattoo).

Then we are thrilled have on Mark Matthews who is the person behind the keyboard on one of South Jersey’s most popular blogs 42 Freeway that was recently spotlighted by Kevin Riordan in the philly.com The Philadelphia Inquirer. If there is something going on in South Jersey around Camden County Government and Gloucester County NJ, there is a good chance Mark has a pulse of what is happening with the who, what, why, and where. Whether it is a new restaurant, store, road change, or closures Mark has been the first to break these types of stories many times and is quickly become an authority and the go to voice for many in these communities.

Last, but certainly not least joining us in studio will be Ettore Ceraso the General Manager of the soon to open Rosalie Restaurant at the Wayne Hotel. Most recently, Ettore was with Davio’s Northern Italian Steakhouse as Vice President overseeing 10 restaurants for the last 18 years, and prior to that Ettore was with The Philadelphia’s Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts for 15 years. At Rosalie, they will feature Italian soul food described by Rosalie Executive Chef Merick Devine as, “Italian cuisine, deeply rooted in tradition, heritage and technique, adapted to the local landscape with a gentle-contemporary approach with a perpetually changing menu sculpted by seasonality and the best of local and traditional Italian ingredients.” Rosalie is named for Fearless Restaurants Owner Marty Grims mother whose family emigrated from Italy. Rosalie will be open for brunch, lunch and dinner daily and will offer outdoor dining, as well as private event space.

Grand Canyon and Route 66 – 2019

Posted on

Hualapai Ranch – Grand Canyon West – Western Rim – Peach Springs, AZ

2

Things started out at the Western Rim of the Grand Canyon. The top picture was at Guano Point and this is what you have to do to make sure your child doesn’t veer off and fall off the cliff while you get your picture taken. I didn’t take a picture of the food, but it should be noted. You will get corn on the cob, a salad bar, and roasted chicken if you get your meal at Guano Point. The ranch was a fabulously fun time and we stayed at the cabins on site which were clean and modern and I was happy we stayed overnight. I didn’t know what to expect, but the stay was fantastic. The staff and crew around the area were amazing and beyond friendly. There were tons of games and things to do for the entire family. The dinner on-site was ribs with steamed vegetables, a snack of fireside s’more at night, and the breakfast the following morning was scrambled eggs, bacon, and toast. If you have kids, this is a must to do while in the Grand Canyon area and staying overnight is well worth it.

El Tovar Dining Room – Grand Canyon National Park -Southern Rim – Grand Canyon Village, AZ

The El Tovar Dining Room is an elegant American restaurant inside the El Tovar Hotel with Grand Canyon vistas from some tables. Well we were lucky enough to be seated at one of the tables with a view. The view was stunning, service impeccable, and food was delicious from start to finish. I had the signature French onion soup gratinee, crab stack with lump blue claw crabmeat, diced avocado, red onions, diced tomato, fried onion, cilantro oil, and entrée was sautéed duck breast with blueberry compote, roasted red potato, and carrots.

Goldies Route 66 Diner – Route 66 – Williams, AZ

8

Goldies Route 66 Diner is a Casual throwback with 1960s styling offering classic American breakfast, lunch & dinner eats. Once again the theme of this post is me forgetting to take a picture of the food. I can tell you this though. Goldies Route 66 Diner was as good as any famous Jersey or Philadelphia Diner around. I don’t think I’ve ever had a better diner experience outside of Tri-State area. I had delicious marbled rye bread, with over easy eggs, and fried potatoes. The décor is exactly what you want to see and done tastefully with a nice gift shop area, and service was down home and bubbly while being extremely affordable. The town itself is cool to explore as well to spend the day.

Viva Las Vegas 2019

Posted on

Gordon Ramsay Hell’s Kitchen – Caesar’s Palace – Las Vegas, NV

With the announcement that future Hell’s Kitchen seasons will be shot on location at his restaurant and filming done at a sound-stage at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas, I figured why not stop by the Vegas Strip location. Chef Gordon Ramsay was in and around the area as they are currently filming, so it was interesting to see the setup and how the staff were doing. The ambiance is top notch and they make you feel as though you are in the middle of the show without being cheesy or cheap. I was lucky enough to be seated right in front to get the feel of being in the kitchen and observe all the action going on. The service was impeccable from start to finish, and food was awesome. I had lobster risotto, pan seared scallops, Caesar salad, beef wellington, and an AMAZING sticky toffee pudding.

Chart House – Golden Nugget – Las Vegas, NV

Situated on the extremely eccentric and eclectic Fremont Street where anything you can imagine, you just might see in person, is Chart House inside the Golden Nugget. The setting of the restaurant is absolutely stunning with a 75,000 gallon aquarium surrounding the dining area. From start to finish I was impressed with the meal. The service was perfect and personable, and the food was delicious. I had the lobster bisque, calamari with fired veggies and a side of kimchi sauce that was to die for when added to the appetizer, grilled octopus, and a Chart House prime rib with a side of king crab legs and an order of sautéed mushrooms.

Sam Woo BBQ – Las Vegas, NV

Sam Woo BBQ is a favorite for Hong Kong-style Chinese foods in a casual, no-nonsense setting on the famous Spring Mountain Road in the Chinatown section of Las Vegas where you can get any Asian delight your heart desires. We were treated like family and service was friendly and efficient during our visit. I had the BBQ platter which was roasted duck, roasted pork, and bbq pork and also had their Mongolian Beef and shrimp fried rice. The duck was REALLY good and the both pork items were delicious as well. The Mongolian Beef was tasty. The shrimp fried rice was nice. Only thing I would ask for would be for larger shrimp my shrimp were too tiny and they could have been cooked a little more and seasoned better.

We are happy to happy welcome Elizabeth Minchilli who is the author of many books on the joys of Italian life. She has written for over 40 magazines, and today shares her passion for Italy through her blog, best-selling apps Eat Italy for iTunes and Android, and through her food tours in Italy. She will join us to talk about her newest book “The Italian Table: Creating festive meals for family and friends” from Rizzoli New York. The Italian Table delivers both parts of the fantasy and reality of Italian meals as they would be eaten on location. Combining menus and recipes with visual experience and inspiration–as well as insight into the traditions of the food and celebrations–it serves as a practical resource that gives home cooks and hosts step-by-step guidance on how to re-create these fabulous meals at their own tables.

Still thinking of Italy, we will have in studio Domenick Crimi the owner of Cappuccio’s Meats in the heart of the 9th Street Italian Market Philadelphia in South Philly Cappuccio’s Meats sells Old-World Style handmade sausages and is an artisanal butchery with cured meats, dry ages steaks, chops, and other cuts of the highest quality meats all butchered on premise and never processed at a third party location. Go and bring Old-World Style and Quality to your modern family’s dinner table.

With warm weather finally arriving, enjoying beverages outdoors is back again. We will have joining us Len Boris the Director of Beverages for Fearless Restaurants to talk about their summer cocktail menu. He oversees great dining destinations like Moshulu, White Dog Cafe, Daddy O Hotel Restaurant, Louie Louie, Tuckers Tavern, Plantation Restaurant and Bar, and Autograph Brasserie. With a passion for food and unique setting, Fearless Restaurants will inspire and delight you with an adventuresome dining experience.

Then trying to revive the East Coast – West Coast rivalry like the old days of rap between Diddy Bad Boy Records and Dr Dre Death Row Records we will have on Cassie Hepler of ExplorewithCassie a lifestyle and travel blog to discuss who is better when it comes to food and drinks. Who will come out on top, the East Coast or West Coast? Hopefully no one gets hurt with this new battle brewing in the culinary world.

Last but certainly not least, we are thrilled to be joined by Venus DeMarco who is an author, motivational speaker, and health coach. It has become her mission to make a positive difference in people’s lives, from the simplest circumstances to many of the most disturbing illnesses facing mankind. In this lifetime, her goal is to motivate people to take their “Health” into their own hands and not wait to change until after they become ill, but instead make wellness and health a priority!

Small Bites Radio’s resident Vegan Food Chef Christina Martin of Cooking to Nourish will also be back in studio for some fun and food talk with us and our guests.

With Derek away traveling and Donato taking a week off, the show will be hosted by Small Bites Radio’s resident Vegan Chef Christina Martin of Cooking to Nourish for some fun and food talk with the guests.

In studio we are very excited to have return one of our favorite chefs, Food Network Chopped Champion Chef Timothy Witcher who had been delighting hungry diners with his restaurant concept The Wing Kitchen at the Wedgwood Country Club. The Wing Kitchen concentrates on great fresh ingredients, simply crafted by expert hands, but embraces a big bold authentic flavor that transcends the chicken wing. Each box of wings, tenders, and fries is an experience. The first few bites will excite, but licking those salty spices and sweet and savory sauces off the fingers is what will keep you coming back!

Then also in studio will be Barry Galasso, a graduate of the Philadelphia Restaurant School. He has been employed at Camden County Technical Schools as a culinary educator since 1997. In his time at the school there have been many accomplishments by students both individually and in team setting through cooking competitions. He has a passion for creating great flavor profiles for food and sharing that knowledge with his students, family, and friends.

What goes with good food? Wine of course! Well the perfect person to come in studio to talk about wine is Zachary Marcus Cesare Harris. For years, while developing a nice palate for wines and meeting a number of great people in the wine industry, he noticed that not only were there virtually no marketing campaigns directed at people of color, but that very few in the industry were trying to develop and educate these demographics earnestly about wine. So he launched his own wine brand called IkaVina Wine and Spirits LLC. He launched this revolutionary wine label so that he can run it his way, but also to market to and develop the virtually untapped consumer base of African Americans, Latino Americans, and Asian Americans with a woman-centric focus. Harris is also talented in music, photography, multimedia, film and video, and has also authored and published three books with a core focus on the issues of love from a man’s perspective.
