Mark Dimunation, Cristina Favretto, Aidan, and I ducked out from RBMS for what Jesse Rossa promised was “the best cheesesteak in Philly, and therefore the world.” As we entered John’s Roast Pork there was a sign on the door saying that Food Network was filming for a new show. It turned out that Michael Symon (Iron Chef, etc.) has a new show…he *personally* made Cristina’s sandwich and followed-up with her afterwards.
Cristina had their famed pork and spinach sandwich, the rest of us had cheesesteak (Mark’s with extra cheese <shudder>). It was, far and away, the best cheesesteak I’ve ever had. I’ve tried to caption all the images below…we shall see if it works.
