Update: Chef Matthew Levin May Be Joining The Starr-Maddox Barbecue Challenge At CBP

We're hearing that Matthew Levin, former executive chef at Lacroix, will be participating in the Stephen Starr-Garry Maddox Barbecue Challenge at Citizens Bank Park this coming Saturday.

UPDATE: confirmed by Michael Klein.

Levin is currently working on opening a barbecue restaurant in Manayunk called Rubb, so participating in the Maddox BBQ Challenge would make perfect sense for him.

And it would be a great opportunity for anxious eaters to see what the former haute cuisine chef can do with ribs.

Which got us to thinking: shouldn't the Percy Street Barbecue team throw down in this challenge as well?

They're probably not ready yet, as chef Erin O'Shea just finished her time at Marigold Kitchen.

But still, it would definitely make for an extra special event if team Solomonov/Cook/O'Shea decided to join in on the fun.

(And Bebe's too.)
