Bufad at Union Transfer | The edible offerings at our favorite Philly venue are getting a boost this week, courtesy of Eraserhood neighbors Bufad Pizza. At Union Transfer, they’re going to be offering four Roman-style pies by the slice, with seasonally-inspired toppings and plenty of vegan and vegetarian options. The kick-off menu is featuring a butternut squash pie; a margherita; and two vegan pies (a tomato and a puttanesca). Slices will be served during events. 1026 Spring Garden St., 215-232-2100, utphilly.com.
Quetzally | Former South Philly Tap Room sous Jorge Pinia has struck out on his own, opening a tiny taqueria in Bella Vista. Tacos are on the menu with chipotle-braised tinga, fried tilapia drizzled with crema and choriqueso, lamb-y barbacoa soup and weekend tamales. It’s cash only (at least until early next week) and BYO, so don’t forget to bring along a sixer of Modelos. Open daily, 9 a.m.-10 p.m., 1225 Fitzwater St., 215-735-2326.
Osteria Moorestown | Marc Vetri and company are expanding to the ’burbs this week with a second location of Osteria opening up in the Moorestown Mall on Monday. Mike Deganis has left Alla Spina and is heading up the kitchen at Osteria 2.0. The kitchen crew has been dropping some major menu spoilers via Instagram, including spit-roasted suckling pig with creamy polenta, natural yeast-risen ciabatta and cannoli piped with torrone semifreddo. Due to the more relaxed liquor laws in Jersey, the all-Italian wine list at Osteria will be slightly less pricey than at the North Broad flagship. Open Sun.-Thu., 11 a.m.-10 p.m.; Fri.-Sat., 11 a.m.-11 p.m.; 400 Rte. 38, Suite 1367, Moorestown, N.J., 856-316-4427.
