It's the age of the duopoly, in which two restaurant concepts share a building, a liquor license, management, and many fixed costs. While chains mostly practice this (such as McCormick & Schmick and William Douglas Steakhouse, and Blue2O and Chili's, both in Cherry Hill), an independent team is giving it a whirl across from the Willow Grove Naval Air Station in Horsham with the new naBrasa , a Brazilian steak house, and Iron Abbey , a gastropub. The site (680 N. Easton Rd.)

If there is a category for new restaurants that have set the world on fire, it would have to include Engine 46 Steak House, which opened recently in RiverView Plaza at Reed and Water Streets - in a firehouse that dates back to 1894. From the time the doors opened four weeks ago, this was a hot property. There were lines to get in, tons of people and an average waiting time of about 25 minutes. Weeknights were no exception. The steakhouse is the concept of Rick Blatstein, who also has given us Philly Rock Cafe and Maui.

The owner of the Pub restaurant closed the South Jersey landmark last night and said it would not reopen unless the union representing about 85 employees worked out a deal with a businessman hoping to buy the steak house. Owner Gary Perez said that if would-be purchaser Marc Gelman and Local 54 of the Hotel and Restaurant Employees International Union did not reach an agreement, he would try to sell the property to a developer. "Right now, the union and the purchaser are negotiating to try to come to a contract," said Perez, whose father-in-law, the late George Wolfman, opened the Pub at the Airport Circle in 1953.

TWO WEEKS ago, Geno Vento stood in the back of the the Penn's Landing Playhouse. It was the VIP performance of "The Calamari Sisters' Big, Fat, Italian Wedding," and Vento, wearing a short beard, thick gold chain and T-shirt beneath a loose-fitting gray suit, unobtrusively watched the wacky musical comedy's two characters, Carmela and Delphine Calamari, sing, dance, crack jokes and cook sausages. The 42-year-old cheesesteak heir, the guy named after his family's South Philly steak shop (and not the other way around)

Carolyn Stewart, a mother of five, has lived all of her life in rough neighborhoods in North Philadelphia. "This is what we live around - shootings every day," said Stewart, 32, as she stood outside the Sumo Steaks restaurant Wednesday afternoon. She joined neighbors who gathered in front of the steak house at 22d and Somerset Streets with music blasting as boxer-turned-promoter Damon Feldman and local boxing legend Meldrick Taylor called for an end to the city's crime and bloodshed.

As dawn breaks over the city, the meat men pull up at restaurant back doors, dropping off steaks, ground beef, and other cuts. More of these trucks now bear a 201 or 646 area code on their doors. Pat LaFrieda and DeBragga & Spitler - New York-rooted butchers who enjoy cult followings among chefs who rave about their dry-aging - have recently begun nibbling at the wholesale-beef business in the region. Their appearance in Philadelphia has everything to do with the price of real estate in Lower Manhattan.

Chops - the steak house that started in Bala Cynwyd and expanded to Washington Square before shuttering last year - is back in business. Alex Plotkin's brand occupies the former Table 31 at the Comcast Center at 17th and JFK Boulevard. Chops' outdoor operation on the plaza in front of the Comcast Center opened in the spring. Eimer Design redid Chops' two-story bar area, opening it up to the outside windows on the 17th Street side and adding a gas fireplace. The dining room is more colorful.

THE 'SEINFELD' fans among us no doubt remember the episode in which George Costanza (played by Jason Alexander) declared the "Summer of George. " Well, it may be accurate to proclaim this the "Summer of Guy. " Last month, Guy Fieri, the tatted-up, spike-haired star of Food Network's "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives" opened Guy Fieri's Chophouse at Bally's Atlantic City. Last night, he saw the second-season debut of "Rachael vs. Guy: Kids Cook-Off," a competition series he co-hosts with another TV-foodie titan (and his close pal)

The Eagles signed first-round pick Marcus Smith to a four-year deal on Monday, making the linebacker out of Louisville the final rookie to sign a deal with the team. "I knew everything was going to get done," Smith said. "I'm just happy that I finally got it done, go out there and play and do the things I love. " Terms of the deal were not immediately available, but it is similar to the four-year, $7.7 million deal with a nearly $4 million bonus signed by the No. 26 pick in last season's draft.

Alarmed by a demolition notice posted on a distinctive 19th- century firehouse in South Philadelphia, City Councilman Mark Squilla and Pennsport Civic Association representatives have arranged to meet with the owner in the hope of saving the building. Very little is known about the company's plans for the quirky, gabled Engine 46 building on Reed Street, wedged between I-95 and the Riverview Plaza movie theater complex. Cedar Realty Trust, the developer that owns both the firehouse and theater complex, has refused to respond to inquiries from city officials or reporters.

THE Brothers Grigg had just started a frozen-food company to make, among other things, french fries. But what to do with the scraps of spud left behind? These potato pieces were too small for proper fries, but there were too many of them to be discarded. One day in 1953, F. Nephi Grigg came up with a delicious solution: He chopped up the potato scraps, shaped them into bite-size cylinders, then fried them golden and crunchy. Thus were born Ore-Ida Tater Tots. As the last almost 60 years have proved, Grigg's little brainstorm - a plug of shredded potato 1 1/2 inches long, 7/8-inch in diameter - has been an enormous success.
