Savor the moment, Fishtown: Once again, Bon Appétit has name-checked two neighborhood spots, nominating Pizzeria Beddia and Sarvida in its annual list of 50 candidates for America’s best new restaurants.
Pizzeria Beddia’s nomination should surprise few who have been paying attention to pizza master Joe Beddia’s rise from a bare-bones storefront to a hot new bar and restaurant. In 2015, it was Bon Appétit that elevated his name to a national level by naming his pizza the best in the country. When Pizzeria Beddia opened in March, the magazine was there on Day One.
Today’s nomination simply stated, “Pizza saint Joe Beddia’s expanded digs live up to the hype.”
The nomination described Sarvida as “Filipino favorites served family-style in a setting that feels like home.”
