WS has these flexible grill baskets on sale for $19.99, hickory chips also a deal @ $1.99. I could have used the basket on this free range Godshall chicken, I did use the hickory. This bird even with a cure and slow cooking was too lean and lack luster. Whole Foods had a good deal on Danish Blue and we had greens and decent tomato from Iovine along with a baguette from metro and delicious peaches from the three springs farm.

Parc is a new Steven Starr spot opening next week. Yesterday I looked over the menu for Parc. The dishes seemed indifferent to both the season and the region. Also there are so many classics listed that executing all of these dishes properly would be an achievement in Paris. At a Steven Starr Philadelphia restaurant it would be a miracle.
Although I have every faith in Chef Filoni's cooking the Starr organization doesn't court culinarily savvy clientèle. In my experience theatrics and novelty run interference for high priced, played out trendy cooking. (except Morimoto)
Hmmm maybe all that is not fair? It's staying up until I learn differently
UPDATE: I haven't been there yet (9/15) but last night I got all up in a very qualified Frenchman's grille about Parc. He said his experiences there were very satisfactory. His only complaint was the noisy dining room with all it's hard surfaces and the noisy resonance of 18th st. traffic.
