Owner Marlo Dilks (top photo) says the name, P’unk, is an abbreviation for Passyunk Avenue.
“What inspired me is the fact that I have four kids and, unfortunately, kids tend to like the worst things,” she says. “So in my house I try to eat all-natural — all my meats in my house are organic — so I tried to come up with a concept that would express that.”
P’unk Burger’s grand opening is Thursday, February 12th.

Meanwhile, it’s that time of the year for the limited-edition “aphrodisiac tasting menu” at restaurant Isabella, in Conshohocken. Executive chef Michael Cappon (below) says he’ll be cooking up these very special (and exciting!) meals on Friday and Saturday, February 13th and 14th, in honor of Valentine’s Day.
“Ten courses,” he notes. “They’re going to be small bites, though. And one of the keys to the aphrodisiacs is that they are all healthy things.”

Meanwhile, Chef Marcie Turney hosts a gluten-free dinner on Monday evening, February 9th, at Barbuzzo, 110 South 13th Street, in center city. Author Jax Peters Lowell explains the meal is in celebration of the launch of her new book, The Gluten Free Revolution.
“I’ve known her (Chef Turney) for a very long time,” Lowell tells What’s Cooking. “She cooked at (the now defunct) Judy’s and I lived two doors down, and every time I walked into Judy’s she converted that comfort food into something really wonderful and gluten-free for me.”
