John Marcelline and Dan Widuch, owners of Two Goodfellas at 4101 Walnut St., may be Philadelphians, but that doesn't stop them from serving a sandwich that has roots elsewhere. Marcelline says his inspiration for their Buffalo Chicken Breast Sandwich came from his love of Buffalo wings, which for those of you unfamiliar, originated in the city of Buffalo, N.Y.
