PHILADELPHIA (September 5, 2018) — If you’re hungry for a good meal & a delicious story,

Unique Eats and Eateries of Philadelphia is here to serve you. The newly-published book includes the sweet and spicy stories behind 90 of the Philadelphia area’s most fascinating restaurants.

Discover how two chocolatiers got engaged; dinners interrupted by bungled mob hits; restaurants that survived an earthquake, a fire and even Prohibition; a secret restaurant that began in a backyard tent; and a distillery that started in a basement. Plus find tips on how to get reservations at trendy restaurants and into secret speakeasies. Learn where to find the most sinful desserts, where senior citizens dine with college students, and where to taste goat, and spot celebrities too.

The book was published by Reedy Press and written by Irene Levy Baker, who is also author of 100 Things To Do In Philadelphia Before You Die and owner of Spotlight Public Relations, which specializes in the restaurant and hospitality industries. Prior to opening her public relations firm in 1998, Baker spent nearly a decade working at the Philadelphia Convention and Visitors Bureau.

Baker, a native of Youngstown, Ohio, moved to Philadelphia in 1991 and has spent seemingly endless hours eating and drinking her way through the region’s award-winning restaurants, small mom-and-pop-owned BYOBs, distilleries, jazz joints and under-the-radar bars. She developed the tips through decades of work with chefs, restaurateurs, food writers and diners. Baker has upcoming book talks/signings scheduled in Center City Philadelphia, as well as in the surrounding counties and in South Jersey. A full list can be found at www.UniqueEatsPhilly.com.
