Marly's Holds Soft Opening This Weekend

Marly's, a new BYOB first mentioned here, had their soft opening this past Friday and Saturday. Reader and co-owner Samantha Hall tells me that for the next couple of weeks they will be open for dinner on Friday and Saturday nights from 5-10pm. Once they have their grand opening, they will extend their hours to include lunch and will be open every day but Sunday.

For more information or for reservations, contact Marly's at 610-933-7471. They are located at 108 Bridge Street.

Stay tuned for official hours as well as a menu which will be posted in the next couple of days.

Good luck to Samantha and the rest of the Marly's crew!

My husband and I ate there Friday night as well and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The service was outstanding - very friendly and accomodating. The decor, from the Ikea place settings to the local artwork, was hip yet homey. And the chairs are comfortable.

And they take reservations! Finally a nice downtown restaurant where I won't have to wait 1 - 2 hours for dinner on the weekend!!

To the person who asked what kind of food they serve, I'd describe the menu as eclectic American. Roughly 10 apps, 10 entrees, & 4 desserts. The menu is a bit heavy for August, but will be perfect once the weather gets cooler. We split the Ahi Tuna app, served over crunchy asian coleslaw (the kind that uses raman noodles, but this version was much better than the picnic fare I'm used to). I had the Anglinotti with peas, mushrooms, & sun-dried tomatoes in a lobster broth and my husband had the gnocchi with long hot peppers in a tomato basil sauce. We split the raspberry cheesecake for dessert. Our bill came to $50. Well worth it.

They were open for dinner last night (Monday!). I got a bento bowl for $15 (appetizer) and a nice slice of peach pie with chocolate drizzle for $7. Really great atmosphere and artwork. Entrees range from $16-$30.

Was that Grateful Dead music I heard playing?

They told me last night that they WILL be open for dinner every night this week.

I would describe it at eclectic American as well. I had the hanger steak and it was amazing. My sister had the gnocchi and is still talking about it.

Very reasonably priced for such great food!

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…
