THE THOUSAND or so hand-painted faces looking down from the buttery walls of the Palm restaurant are full of smiles, for the most part. Mr. T isn't happy, of course, and it's hard to tell how the collies (Dixie and Pumpkin) feel, but most faces are beaming, from Rob Lowe's brother, Chad, to former Eagles linebacker Dhani Jones and the actor Lorenzo Lamas, who played Lance Cumson on the 1980s TV show Falcon Crest .

Creme de la crepe "A lot of people think of crepes as fancy food," says Crêpe Town owner Julie Bartfield, who, with her chef-husband Mike, has been operating the stand in the Bellevue food court for a few months. "They are more like street food. Healthy, too. " Mike crisps the ethereal pancake to order, before layering in sweet or savory fillings. The Belgium chocolate-cherry is hard to resist. The crepe recipe was passed down to Mike from his great-grandfather. By spring, the Bartfields hope to be serving their treats in a second, street-level Center City shop.

The Beaux Arts landmark on South Broad Street was the bastion of Philadelphia high society. Visiting royalty and wealthy industrialists could enjoy it, but not South Philly sandwich makers, not even one who styled himself the King of Steaks. Yesterday at the Bellevue, however, you could not only buy a cheesesteak "wit' ," you could actually buy one made by Pat's grandson Rick.
