February 19th, 2016 (WPVI) -- This weekend, on FYI Philly, we visit a new restaurant with a taste of Armenian cooking and tradition. We'll take you to a takeout spot with healthy Southeast Asian fare, and try some bagels boiled in beer! Plus, the Flower Show black tie gala is just two weeks away. We'll get dressed to impress with a South Philly legend! And it's the last weekend of the Philadelphia Home Show. We get some tips on outdoor entertaining.
