“Probably the meatloaf. We’ve gotten great feedback and great response about that. It could be the friend chicken, I don’t know. The guests will determine what that is.”

“Top Chef was filmed in D.C. I live in South Jersey, but Philadelphia is my home. I mean, this is where I’ve always dreamed of having a restaurant.”
Sbraga is located on the corner of Broad and Pine streets.
