There was an article in last week's Phoenix regarding the groundbreaking ceremony that was held at the Superintendent's Building. In the article, Barry Cassidy was quoted as saying that Baxter's Restaurant would be one of the tennants when the renovation was complete. This seems to have been confirmed in this article from yesterday's Phoenix.
Council approved unanimously the inter-municipal transfer of a Liquor Control Board license for Baxter’s restaurants, to be applied to Baxter’s proposed facility in the renovated Superintendent’s Building.
Baxter's has three other locations, Paoli, West Chester and the Great Valley Corporate Center. From their website (www.baxterspa.com)
If you like fine food which is well-prepared and beautifully presented but in a comfortable and casual atmosphere, Baxter's Saloon and Eatery is the place for you! Look no further than downtown West Chester, Paoli, and the Great Valley Corporate Center in Malvern where you'll find a fun and upbeat pub serving some of the best dishes in the area!
At Baxter's Great Valley, pleasant live acoustic rock greets you as you approach the door. You will be invited in by a hospitable hostess and treated with special care by your personable and knowledgeable server. The friendly and warm atmosphere permeates the pub which is comfortably occupied by diners enjoying the company of others and appreciating the delicious and colorful creations of Chef Young. Wednesday through Saturday evenings you will be treated to a variety of musical artists as you relax in one of the roomy booths or generously sized tables.
No word on when the renovations will be finished or when the restaurant will open.
