Chef Jessie Prawlucki reviews Agnolotti at Modo Mio
$$$ | Italian
Northern Liberties
1 Review
"The four-course 'Turista' at Modo Mio is the best deal in town and one of the few tasting menus that you actually get to choose the items. Their pastas are fantastic, especially the half-moon agnolotti filled with braised rabbit and tossed in brown butter."
Chef Georges Perrier reviews Spaghetti bolognese at Modo Mio

Northern Liberties

"Peter McAndrews always cooks his pasta al dente at his Northern Liberties trattoria. There's smoked pancetta in this meat sauce, and just the right amount of garlic."

"Chef Peter McAndrews has a gem in this sandwich shop. Why not wrap an all-beef hot dog with sopressata, place it in a roll slathered with chopped long hots and tangy sharp provolone, then top the whole thing off with Bolognese? Two, please."
Chef Pierre Calmels reviews Arista sandwich at Paesano's Philly Style

"Paesano's is right down the street from Bibou, making it another lunch favorite for my staff and me. The best sandwich there is the Arista, loaded with suckling pig, long hots, broccoli rabe, and sharp Provolone."

"Peter McAndrews knows how to put a sandwich together. All of the choices at his Paesano's shops are great, but my favorite is the Gustaio, a link of house-made lamb merguez with cherry mostarda, Gorgonzola dolce, and arugula on warm, toasted flatbread."
Chef Sean McPaul reviews Paesano sandwich at Paesano's Philly Style

"Their signature sandwich is a knockout: chunked up, juicy beef brisket dressed with a spicy horseradish mayo, roasted tomatoes, pepperoncini, and sharp provolone. Then they round the whole thing out with a fried egg. I only eat this thing at night because it knocks me out. Seriously, it will ruin a much valued day off…"
