U CITYShaban Kabab and Curry opened its doors this month in a space that used to be Philly's Best Pizza, and Naked Philly has the early report.

OLD CITY — Prosciutto threw a party last night, and Zagat Philly's got the recap. Cured and Crafted tasked a slew of local chefs with creating a prosciutto-centered bite to pair with a specific beer, with top honors going to the Jersey Shore's Luke Palladino and The Mildred's Mike Santoro. [Zagat]
