Philly Gets LaFrieda, But New York Still Waiting for Tony Luke’s


If L.A. can have a high-end Pat LaFrieda burger, so should Philly. Thats why, according to Philadelphia magazine, the new Rittenhouse Square restaurant Pub & Kitchen spent a year and a half negotiating, wheedling and, eventually, tasting with La Frieda to create an $18 burger thats glazed with bone marrow and topped with fried onions. Congrats, Philly! Now will you return the meaty favor and tell us when and where that New York location of Tony Lukes is ever going to open? The website says its still to be announced.
