In this episode of “The Special,” we explore the constantly evolving South Philadelphia neighborhood. Once considered a red light district, an influx of businesses have moved there, some of which are owned by the chef Marcie Turney, who has opened restaurants, bars and boutiques in the area. While Turney prepares this episode’s meal, we’ll tour South Philly and visit a local glassblower, a butcher and a boxing coach.

We’ll sit for a traditional Italian-Philly meal of “Sunday Gravy” with three female entrepreneurs. For more information and behind the scenes photos, visit

BMW’s first ever X7 inspired “The Special” by bringing together a new collaboration between two expert storytellers: The New York Times’s T Brand Studio and The Infatuation for the first time. Together, they examine culture and food in a way only they can. Sponsored by BMW.
