Your daily roundup of Philly food tidbits
• In celebration of the renovation of Rittenhouse's Radisson Blu Warwick hotel, The Coffee Bar is offering a "Love our Locals" deal, a free large regular coffee with the purchase of a pastry or dessert. The deal is good throughout the month of February, between 1-7 PM, Monday through Friday.
• Starting today, you can pick up $15 Valentine's Day two-packs of Philly's most talked about dessert, Barbuzzo's salted caramel budino. Find them at Verde on 13th Street from 11 AM-8 PM. No ordering is necessary, though you probably shouldn't wait until Friday afternoon to get yours.
• Tonight, Petruce et al's beverage director, George Costa, will be previewing his cocktails at Fairmount's Lemon Hill from 9 PM-2 AM. Plus, the restaurant will be showing the the Winter Olympics through the closing ceremony on February 23 and offering their winter classics cocktails along with one menu item per day at a reduced rate ($5 for cocktails if the U.S. wins gold and $7 for silver - they're regularly priced at $9).
• Foobooz is reporting that Be Well Philly will be throwing $15, white-tablecloth, meatless meals once a month at Whole Foods. Make sure to have your bacon for breakfast that day.
