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.

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…

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'.

Local Business Spotlight: The Fenix

As mentioned a couple of months back, Phoenixville will soon be home to a premium martini and whiskey bar. Named The Fenix, it is owned by the owners of Molly Maguire's and will be located right next door to Molly's at 193 Bridge Stret.

The Fenix hopes to have a soft opening tonight or tomorrow with a grand opening coming in September. I sent an email into General Manager Michael Matarazzo who had this to say regarding the new venture:
