PHILADELPHIA— Chef Marc Vetri's hotly anticipated Philadelphia restaurant Lo Spiedo is scheduled to debut Monday, October 27, and Eater Philly has a look at what it's calling a "surprising" menu from the James Beard Award-winning chef. In lieu of the expected pasta dishes and other Italian touches, Lo Spiedo will offer playful dishes like "New England-style octopus rolls," barbecue carrots with ranch, and popcorn (served with parimigano butter.) Says Eater Philly: "This overall concept is just a touch weirder than we thought — weirder, and more fun." Check out the entire menu here. [EPHI]
