Spiedie Bistro Opening Delayed

The Spiedie Bistro, originally slated to open on February 11th, is now hoping to hold their Grand Opening during March's First Friday.

---
Owner Brian Laing said there had been an "electrical snag" last week that created delays in construction. Laing originally planned to open the bistro on February 11. He does not know for certain when the bistro would open, though he hopes to have a grand opening on March 7 during that month’s First Friday celebrations.

"We might open one or two days before that to work some glitches out," Laing said. "But we’re shooting for First Friday."

This place is hard to find. Where is it, behind the Theater where the Domino's used to be before moving to Nutt Road? You can't even see it from Bridge Street.

An electric snag holds this place up for a month? Wow ... hope that's not an indication of how the place is gonna be. What takes these people so long. If this were China or some other country that could be quick on its feet, the place would be up and running in a couple of days.

For those who are wondering, Spiedie Bistro is located on N. Bank St, below Fashionista Salon. And as far as the "electrical snag", I heard it only pushed them back a week, but decided to have a grand opening on the March 7, First Friday.

Several Local Businesses Closing Up Shop

Over the next couple of months, three local businesses will be closing their doors.

On Saturday, February 16th, Polka Dots will be closing their store at 246 Bridge Street. The shop, a women's clothing boutique, opened nearly two and a half years ago but has recently found business slow.

Originally, (owner Susan) Randels said that the store was doing well, but that the momentum could not keep up.

"The things that sold in Paoli didn't sell in Phoenixville," she said, adding that some customers thought that the store was too expensive or the sizing did not go high enough (size 12 being the highest size sold). "We tried everything."

Randels also said that parking was an issue for many of her customers who could either not find spaces or did not feel safe parking behind the store.

Polka Dots remains open until the 16th, with hours on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. The phone number is 610-935-5914. Clothing and shoes are bei…

La Crêperie Café Bis Opens

Yesterday, Phoenixville's newest cafe opened. La Crêperie Café Bis, located at the corner of Bridge and Gay Streets at the base of the Gay St. Bridge, opened its doors at 11am. As you can probably guess by its name, La Crêperie features both sweet and savory crêpes which, owner Marietou Fanny says, are made with only fresh ingredients. Fanny also owns a restaurant in Center City in Philadelphia called La Crêperie Café, which has been open for nine years.

La Crêperie is open seven days a week. Hours are Monday-Friday from 11am-10pm, Saturday 11am-11pm and Sunday from 10am-7pm.

Best of luck to Marietou and her staff!

Public meeting to discuss future of Melchiorre Park scheduled for Nov. 29th

On Thursday, November 29th, the Borough is holding a 'brainstorming session' in which plans for Melchiorre Park will be discussed with its park planning consultants. The event will be held at the High School and will begin 7pm.

For those of you who do not know about Melchiorre Park (of which I am included, even though I apparently live across the street from it), it is a 23 acre park located south of High Street on the land between it and French Creek. It appears, based on the drawing on the Borough home page, to be the land that is next to Westridge Village and across the street from the new Northridge Village community.

As part of the meeting, the consultants will 'provide a brief background of the project and present a pre-final master plan for the park'.
