You never know what
(or who) you’ll see at
Key Ingredients

What a find! Nicolette Olivieri, a visitor to the Key Ingredients exhibit during its time in Woodbury, is a member of the family that owns and operates the famous Philadelphia eatery Pat’s Steaks. The picture under the cheesesteak tidbit is her dad, Frank Olivieri, standing in front of the restaurant. His inclusion in the exhibit was unknown to him, but we’re glad to have discovered it!
