Ever order every single dish on the menu and still covet what's being served two tables over, only to realize if you knew the magic word (pro tip: it's usually "please"), the chef would've stuffed your appetizers inside the entrees? No? Good, because now you don't have to -- we asked nicely all over town and uncovered the five most secret eats that'll make the other diners as envious of your dinner as they are of your manners.
Nutella Pizza, Osteria
There are already nine pies on the menu at Marc Vetri's Tuscan feastery -- how many more do you want? If the answer is "one", wait 'til dessert, then order this Nutella pizza, an oven-baked dough-hooded chocolate-hazelnut smothered crust buried under a mound of powdered sugar.
Dill Pickle-Glazed Fried Chicken, Federal Donuts
Forget about honey-ginger and chili-garlic, because ask nicely and the fry cooks at Fed Nuts' Sansom St locale will combine your love of fried pickles & fried chicken and coat your crunchily twice-fried bird with a salty-sweet slather of dill pickle juice glaze.
Foie Gras-Stuffed Lobster Tails, Davio's
What's more baller than the off-menu foie gras skewers at Zahav? A hulking slab of that fatty goose liver goodness stuffed all up inside a half-pound tarragon butter-poached lobster tail at this Center City northern Italian joint.
Corned Beef Cheesesteak, McGillin's Olde Ale House
Want to celebrate your Irish-Italian-Jewish heritage in meat form? Get the best of all worlds with this secret cheesesteak that replaces chipped ribeye with salt-cured Reuben-filler bundled with melted cheddar inside a hoagie roll.
Welsh Rarebit Chips, Victoria Freehouse
There's two reasons to whisper this dish's name: 1) the twice-fried chips smothered in hot cheesy bacon, onion, and ale gravy are an off-menu treat previously only known to employees, and 2) you're probably ordering this ultimate hangover cure for a very good reason.
