FoodWire: News from Pappy's Smokehouse, Niche


A few brief news items: Mike Emerson sends words that his Pappy's Smokehouse (3106 Olive Street; website) will be hosting a new Travel Channel series, 101 Best Places to Chow Down in America, this Sunday, October 4, from 1-3 p.m. Pappy's will be barbecuing a whole hog for the cameras, which is always a reason to stop by.

Meanwhile, Gerard Craft sent word via Twitter last night that he has promoted Niche (1831 Sidney Street; website) sous chef Adam Altnether to be the restaurant's chef de cuisine.
