Coming Soon: Marly's Restaurant

Reader Samantha wrote in to tell me about a new restaurant she and two partners are opening in May. The restaurant, Marly's, will be located at 108 Bridge St. and is described as "...a BYO with an upscale eclectic American Continental menu by owner/Chef Michael Favacchia."

Stay tuned for more information including an official opening date. Best of luck to Samantha and co.!

where is 108 Bridge St? Is that in the old Panini's restaurant site?

No, I am pretty sure its the building next to the old mechanics shop. The one with the new wood/window facade.

Panini's didn't make it in this town? Wow. That's too bad. I never was there, but always wanted to try it.

We ate at Panini's once on a First Friday. The food was pretty good and it was nice that it was BYOB. The place was packed due to the First Friday and our server was so flighty, but we still had a great time.

To the person who posted anonymously .."Panini's didn't make it? Wow, too bad...never there but I wanted to try it". - That's exactly the point (you were never there) so that's one of the reasons why it's out of business. Please people, support your local stores as they are here to make all of our living experiences here in Phoenixville better.

Isn't there a "Bistro 156" or something like that in it's place though?

Bistro 156 replaced Panini's but it didn't last long at all.

I went there last night with five friends. We all had appetizers and dinner, and split a few desserts. Everything was so good! All of us plan to return.

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!

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…
