Judging by the Twitter questions I’ve been answering this morning, not everyone has squared away Valentine’s plans. Check out our Valentine’s Guide for last second suggestions or try this suggestion on for size.
Head down to Verde on 13th Street, and pick up the Barbuzzo Budino for two pack for $15. Then cross 13th Street and grab a bouquet of flowers from Spike’s Greens flower shop pop-up in Duross and Langel. Add some Yards Philly Pale Ale soap and you’ll go from Valentine’s Day zero to hero.

Barbuzzo: It Gets Better
Tables at Barbuzzo aren’t exactly easy gets during a normal week. And during Restaurant Week, things are going to be even tighter.

Barbuzzo’s famous salted caramel budino is available for holiday pickup now till 5 p.m. Christmas Eve at Verde (108 S 13th Street, next to Barbuzzo).

There are few places in the country that take beer as seriously as we do here in Philly—one of them being Colorado. The aptly named “Napa Valley of beer” gained recognition as one of the nation’s premier craft beer states, ranking first in the nation in beer production per capita, and second in amount of breweries with just over 135 statewide.

Barbuzzo is practically a dietitian’s dream. Not because it’s healthy per se—a 2010 Philly Mag review encourages diners to indulge and “balance the health ledger later.” Yikes—but because its menu is built for sharing. And sharing, as we know, is a healthy-minded diner’s best friend.
