Hello all, I am going to be in Philly for a few days and was looking for great CH places. I am interested in places that make thier own charcruterie. I was reading about Maia out by villanova. has anyone been? I am also looking for bbq. Jacks BBQ was up here in boston for a bbq festival and I thought that his stuff was pretty good. How is the restaurant?

any other ideas would be welcome.

    For charcuterie, I'd give Ansill & Tria a try.

      The Bistro at Maia is very good and worth the drive.

        For house-made charcuterie you might want to try Osteria. Quite pricey, but very, very good. Pretty much everything else the serve is excellent as well.

          Well, I think there is a HUGE difference between charcuterie and BBQ. For charcuterie try Osteria. For BBQ, I have no idea.

            He's not suggesting otherwise. He wants to know the best charcuterie joint AND bbq joint.
