Mark Bittman, the award-winning food columnist for The New York Times, has been showing love for Philadelphia of late.
In an article this week about grand food markets, he proclaimed to New Yorkers that, “well, the grandest market ‘we’ have is 80 miles away, in Philadelphia.” Referring of course to our beloved Reading Terminal Market.
And we’re certainly not going to argue with his assessment.
But that was only part one.
Bittman was also in town this week for a free lecture on “The Future of Food.”
During the talk at Rodeph Shalom, among the many complementary things Mark had to say was this gem: “Philadelphia is the most underrated city in the world.”
Thanks Mark! It’s always nice to hear from a visitor that loves us back.
