Tucked inside a sentimental goodbye by Lauren McCutcheon in the Daily News is a nugget of what may come to be after brunch standby Carman’s Country Kitchen closes at the end of the year.

After McCutcheon deftly uses about 2,000 euphemisms describing owner Carmen Luntzel’s prodigious penis collection – does she have penis envy? – she writes:
After 22 years at 11th and Wharton, the self-made chef and self-proclaimed “keeper of the penises” is closing shop and moving to South Carolina. At summer’s end, Luntzel’s landlord sent notice he wasn’t renewing her lease. The property owner wants to turn her one-of-a-kind South Philly spot into a run-of-the-mill pizza shop.
We’ve been trying to get info about that pizza place for about a week, so thanks a lot for blowing up our spot, McCutcheon! Kidding. But has anyone heard anything about the pizza place-to-be?
