Majolica to reopen

Michael Klein, blogger for Philly.com, initially reported that Majolica was closing its doors a couple of weeks ago, is back today with a post indicating they will be reopening on March 18th.

From the post:
---
They're changing the menu to, as Johnson calls it, "more French bistro-y." Prices are falling by 40 percent or so. It's sporting a new logo. A new sign went up on Bridge Street. The place has been painted and mildly redecorated.

Reopening is scheduled for March 18.

“The changes we are rolling out are a direct response to these economic times,” said Deery, the chef, in a statement, “but we’re excited about making the Majolica experience available for anyone.” Johnson wants the restaurant to be a frequent visit, not devoted to the special-occasion crowd.

Stay tuned for a full press release on this site tomorrow morning.

Okay all you folks who never got around to trying Majolica; it's time to step up! And check out the website. Besides their great menu you can have Chef Deery cater your next party, teach you to cook like a professional or even have him come to your house and cook dinner for you and your friends.

And keep patronizing our other great restaurants and shops. We can make Phoenixville a destination town. We've got lots of wonderful venues: food, shops, theater, and music. Get the word out by telling friends and inviting them to come with the next time you're heading out for a meal or movie or shopping trip.

It's up to us to promote our town and our business owners. And if you have a bad experience, speak to the business where it happened and get it sorted out. Don't jump online and start complaining.

Hey, smartblondemom, I agree with you and we're on the same boat. I absolutely love this town and only WE can make it better. That's what I don't get about some of these people that seem to want Pville to do poorly, what's up with that? If downtown Pville does poorly then so do we. It will effect our quality of living, our daily activity, and our housing values.

Local Business Spotlight: G Lodge Restaurant

The G Lodge Restaurant is our most recent Local Business Spotlight. Located just a couple of miles from downtown to Phoenixville, the G Lodge has been a go to spot for breakfast and lunch for over 34 years. It was even featured in M.Night Shyamalan's 'The Happening'. The following is from RetroRoadmap.com:

If you’ve just visited Valley Forge National Park you may still be in the Colonial-era headspace, so why not continue in that vein by breakfast/lunching at the G Lodge? The inside of this unassuming roadside eatery (attached to an auto repair shop) echoes the log cabin structures of adjacent national park...just not as drafty.

Daily specials are listed above the counter, and there’s a lot on the menu as well. My eyes to always be bigger than my stomach here, though I’ve never sprung for the G-Buster special. Unlike many diner fans I am not a fan of breakfast homefries so I love that they have potato patties (deep fried!) as an option.

Local Baker Wins on Netflix Sugar Rush

Peri Anderson, owner of Brooklyn Girl Bakery, was part of a team that won the most recent episode of Sugar Rush on Netflix. I reached out to Peri to learn a little more about her bakery:
I started out taking a recreational cake decorating class with my mom when I was still living in NY. I loved it and moved to PA to be with my boyfriend (now husband), where I began interning for a bakery in Chestnut Hill. Over the course of 7 years I worked my way up from intern to pastry chef until I decided to leave in 2012. I do all of my baking in our home kitchen which is licensed and insured by the Dept. of Agriculture. Initially, I wanted to focus on wedding cakes so I immediately started contacting wedding venues in the area to see if they would include me a wedding cake vendor in their packages. I currently work with over 10 venues and several caterers in the area. While wedding cakes are my main focus, I also make cakes and cookie favors for all occasions. While I don’t have a retail locatio…
