good charcuterie and BBQ?

gutterman Jul 27, 2008 07:21 AM

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.

    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.

      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.

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

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