News and notes on the local dining scene.
» It never gets old: By now, Michael Wei should be accustomed to the praise for his Bryn Mawr eatery, Yangming. But he was more than humbled when Yangming beat out 45,000 other establishments nationwide to win the coveted title of Best Chinese Restaurant in America from Chinese Restaurant News. The awards ceremony in San Francisco was recently featured on CBS Sunday Morning.
» Coming soon: If all goes as planned, the new Ardmore Farmers Market outpost of South Philly’s beloved Di Bruno Bros. should be just days away from its much-anticipated debut. Occupying no less than five stalls, the Italian specialty food institution promises all the heavenly cheeses and salty meats you fell in love with on your very first trip to the original. Blackfish’s Chip Roman and former Lacroix chef Jason Cichonski have their sights set on Chestnut Hill for a yet-unnamed New American eatery expected to open this month. Come spring, Georges Perrier will unveil his new bakery in Narberth, The Art of Bread by Georges Perrier. And look for the boards to come off the windows at the Mexican restaurant Xilantro in Wayne any day now (we hope).
