This week on FYI Philly, we're taking you on a culinary trip around the globe -- from old world Italian to Venezuelan street food and even a kung fu cooking club! Plus, we hit a suburban spot with all-day offerings for all appetites, and give a nod to the classic American sandwich with a six pack of burgers to put on your bucket list. And Broadway's coming to Broad Street! We head to New York for a look at the best date night shows and great girls night out options playing soon in Philadelphia!

FYI Philly airs Saturdays at 7 p.m. with encore shows Sundays at midnight. Here are the details on this week's features:
