Japanese Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner at Whole Foods
Genji, a premier provider of sushi in the U.S. & the U.K, is now serving breakfast, in addition to lunch and dinner, at the Whole Foods in NYC’s Columbus Circle. The company has sushi counters in most Whole Foods Market stores, but breakfast is only served in their Time Warner store. Check it out between 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. any morning.
What Genji’s Serving at Whole Foods
You can enjoy an authentic Japanese breakfast, complete with a steaming bowl of miso soup, some dusky kale with sesame seeds, root vegetables, a piece of classic tamago (egg) omelet, grilled fish (either mackerel or salmon), steamed rice and a cluster of tangy pickles that are all artistically plated and oh-so-delicious. So, if you happen to be in the Big Apple, stop by the Whole Foods at 10 Columbus Circle.

Philadelphia Magazine threw their annual Best Of Philly party last night and it was, well, the best. Under the watchful eye of William Penn, Philadelphians and food enthusiasts alike descended upon Dilworth Park for a night of the city’s best food, drinks, and music. Here are some of our top picks for the evening:
- Farm and Fisherman Tavern + Market, Best Kid-Friendly Restaurant, was serving corn three ways; corn pudding, charred corn, and popcorn. You can find this farm-to-table BYOB at two locations, Washington Square West and Cherry Hill.
- Kensington Quarters, Best Butcher Shop, featured a pork head cheese that was an instant hit. In addition to a butcher shop, KQ is also a restaurant and is open for dinner Tuesday – Sunday, with a can’t-miss brunch Sunday morning.
- Laurel, Best Restaurant, stole the show with their caramelized white chocolate pudding. Reservations are hard to come by at this East Passyunk spot, but they often alert their Twitter followers to last minute cancelations (@LaurelEPX).
Thank you Philly Mag for such a fun night, we’re already counting down to next year’s party!
