DAILY BITES
Double the Fun in Feb at Sushisamba

Japanese SAMBAHour launched on February 1st and is a Japanese inspired happy hour at both Sushisamba locations. The happy hour, which is available on weekdays, takes place from 4-7pm, and features Japanese entertainment and workshops. Enjoy delectable bites such as kuromitsu glazed pork belly buns and spicy scallop gunkan, as well as a selection of Japanese beers and sakes.

But that's not all that's going on this month at the well-known resto. On February 18th, Sushisamba will be hosting a special Carnaval to mark Rio de Janeiro's most noted celebration. Enjoy live performances by shimmering samba dancers, dance to batucada drummers, and pick dishes off of their regular a la carte menu. The celebration will commence at 9pm and (sadly) end at 1am. Both locations will broadcast a live feed of the celebration in Brazil and will be serving up their tasty Carnaval Cocktail ($12, leblon, domaine de canton, fresh kiwi, champagne). There will also be yummy carnval food specials!

Shimmy your way to Sushisamba this month and partake in all of their lively festivities inspired by countries around the world!

I Like A Restaurant Dressed In Tweed

If Mad Men was set in 2010, you’d find the cast hanging out at Tweed. Located on 12th Street between Walnut and Sansom, this chic eatery opened earlier this year thanks to hotelier Edward Bianchini and Chef David Cunningham. Bianchini, a Philly native, owns the award winning hotel and restaurant Les Muscadins located near Cannes. Chef Cunningham has worked under Eric Ripert (often seen on Top Chef) and acted as Executive Chef at the Lenox Room and Petrossian (both in New York City).

There isn’t any wonder why everything about Tweed shines.
