Restaurant notes: Deli revamped; TV show shooting here

The Kibitz Room gets new name and management.

The Kibitz Room, which opened last year at 1521 Locust St. as an offshoot of the Cherry Hill landmark, is now known as Schlesinger's -- which happens to be owner/landlord Allan Domb's mother's maiden name. It is now managed by Louis Barson of the Main Line Barson's family.

Meat & Potatoes, the Food Network show hosted by Rahm Fama and devoted to meat sandwiches, is in town today through Friday to shoot at the Original Nick's, Han Dynasty, and Village Whiskey. Be aware of dining room closures.

Tony Luke Jr. flies out today for Bahrain, site of Sunday's grand opening of a shop in the Middle Eastern kingdom. "Sheikh & Steak"? Nah. It's called Tony Luke's.
