Tyson Bee’s Crack-Like Concoctions Snare Another Critic; Fathom Flaunt’s ‘Glacially Cold, Immaculately Clean’ Raw Bar Selections

• Brian Freedman writes that the crack-like concoctions pedaled by Tyson Bee’s are the “perfect intersection of concept and execution,” and the Bee-zilla “taps into every guy’s deepest primal desire to create and consume some sort of uber-burrito.” [PW]

• Despite barstools being too short at Fathom Seafood House’s bar, Adam Erace says he “could sit there all day,” downing “glacially cold, immaculately clean Kusshis, Chef Creeks, Wellfleets and Westports” and “a frosty Harpoon.” [Citypaper]

• Phyllis Stein-Novack says the hamachi ceviche served as part of Sampan’s new dim sum brunch “was the best dish of the day,” but the Reuben-inspired corned beef bun “lacked flavor.” [South Philly Review]

• The “simple, good food” served by University City’s Kitchen at Penn, like the baked chicken and the meatballs- pickled vegetables- and Sriracha aioli-laden West Philly Banh Mi sandwich “emulate the feeling of a home-cooked meal.” [Penn Appetit]
