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.

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'.

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!
