Wings at Dienner’s BBQ Chicken ‘Were Very Impressive’; Where to Eat Ramps

• In lieu of a proper review this week, Brian Freedman gives a rundown on some approaching opportunities to experience “great food-and-drink combinations,” including Philly Beer Week, a gluten-free beer dinner at Davio’s, and an Australian wine dinner at Davio’s. The interesting part is the mention of the wine tastings forthcoming Talula’s Daily will offer when it opens in — wait for it — mid-July. [PW]

• Adam Erace also forgoes a restaurant review this week, and instead delivers the low-down on ramps, where to find them, and what chefs are doing with them. [Citypaper]

• Midtown Lunchers pop their Dienner’s BBQ Chicken cherry at Reading Terminal Market, and report back that the deep fried wings “weren’t greasy”; rotisserie wings “were very impressive”; and the sauce on the San Antonio style wings “got a little cloying” but was still “not a horrible wing to have.” [Midtown Lunch]
