Passyunk Square home gets modern facelift, asks $385K

Prior to the renovation, the home at 1541 S. Camac Street was just your average South Philly rowhome, featuring a green awning outside and some faux finishes inside. But after selling for $130,000 in 2011, it looks completely brand new both inside and out.

By rough estimates, I ate no fewer than 400 restaurant meals over the course of the year's weekly reviews, scouting restaurants, doing Crumb Tracker Quiz research, and producing my Jersey Shore series and two other gigantic projects that took me to Northeast Philly (60 restaurants) and the suburbs for our Ultimate Dining guide (160), which alone cost me no fewer than a quarter-million calories.

    How Craig LaBan reviewed Philly's restaurants in 2017
    Philadelphia's best chefs turned back time in 2017, embracing some old favorites, with nods to tradition, and then making them relevant again. That's how Joey Baldino turned a century-old private Italian hideaway called the Palizzi Social Club into the hottest table in town - even with the added challenge of needing to find a member to host.
