Station Bistro Hosting Another Authentic Crawfish Boil

The BAYOU and the BBQ II
Kimberton’s Station Bistro Stages Another Authentic Crawfish Boil on June 14, 2009
Craig and Nancy Miller know a good thing when they see it. 450 pounds of crawfish and scores of happy customers later, May 17th's Crawfish Boil at The Station Bistro was a lot of fun and a spicy success. So, while good crawfish are still available in season, the Millers are doing it again! Cajun in Kimberton!

This time around, diners will have a choice of getting All-You-Can-Eat crawfish, savory jambalaya, cool, creamy coleslaw and a beverage for $33.95; OR a full helping of the Station Bistro's famous, smoked-on-site baby-back ribs, french fries, coleslaw, and a beverage for $27.95. There will be some Victory and Yuengling beers for tasting, but since the Station Bistro is a BYOB, Craig Miller suggests diners also bring a few good beers to pair with his down-home Cajun feast; ones that definitely can stand up to the bold flavors you'll taste.”

Miller and wife Nancy have been doing crawfish boils in their backyard for years, sharing their passion for Louisiana cooking with family and friends. When the Millers had the opportunity to work in New Orleans, they found themselves exploring every aspect of New Orleans cuisine and eating where the locals ate. “We loved the jambalaya and red beans and rice at Masparo's,” says Miller, “the etoufee at Copeland's and Emeril Legasse's gumbo when he was the chef at Commander's Palace. And when I make those dishes, I'm staying true to their great recipes. But most of all Nancy and I really got into crawfish. We could easily down five pounds of crawfish each with some good beers at a local bar.”

And now both serious and casual Cajun food lovers will have one more chance to get down „n dirty with some mudbugs on June 14.

“We have the crawfish flown in fresh from Louisiana that day,” Nancy Miller points out, “and we use an authentic seasoning blend to flavor the boil. It's the real deal.”

The Station Bistro’s 2nd Annual Crawfish Boil II starts at 12:00pm on Sunday June 14, 2009.

The cost is $ 33.95 for the All-You-Can-Eat Crawfish OR $27.95 for the BBQ Rib Dinner.

RSVP's requested to help with ordering, can be made at (610)933-1147 or via the restaurant's e-mail link at www.stationbistro.com.

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.

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…
