Good pastry shops (French?)

Updates on Mainland Inn?

Well, that's sad! I am not on here as much as I used to be, but I read what's going on when I can. cgarner is still around. She and her husband attended the Blackfish dinner a few years back. I guess we need to meet some new hounds!

Amis...cazzo!

I am not sure the OP is looking for alternate dining suggestions.

Macaroni Grill out - PJ's Pour House in

I don't go up to Montgomeryville on a regular basis, but noticed yesterday that Macaroni Grill has closed.

Allegro Grill-Maple Glen

Does anyone know what is going on with Allegro Grill? I noticed it closed a couple of weeks ago. There was s sign out front saying they would reopen that Thursday, but it didn't happen. On my way home yesterday I noticed they had an alcohol application in the window.

Personally, I didn't care for the restaurant. It would be nice to have a quality restaurant in the area. We stopped there about a month ago because it is close to home. My husband ordered the penne vodka and it was fine. I ordered the chilean sea bass special, which had a lemon butter sauce that was inedible. Unless you like the taste of straight salty lemon juice. After that visit, we said never again.

Another nice meal at Kinnaree in Horsham

We were told it is their policy not to take returned food off the check. I was not rude about returning the appetizer. I explained that it was cold and didn't live up to the description on the menu. It was the Fricassee of Mushrooms. There was no hint of marsala and no seasoning to speak of. The server walked away with the dish without asking if I would like to select another appetizer. He came back with our entrees. My husband got their Pad Thai, which he always ordered and really liked. I got the duck, which was slightly overcooked and a bit on the dry side. The flavor was pretty good. We went there at least once a month. If the owner is commenting that business is slow, there must be a reason. We went to Pho & More yesterday and almost had to wait for a table at 12:00 for lunch.

Another nice meal at Kinnaree in Horsham

We used to go there, but stopped going after I returned an appetizer that was tasteless and cold and they refused to take the item off our check. It's a shame because it is less than 10 minutes away.

Cafe Lombardi - Terrible 1/2 star

We also enjoy CL regularly. I love that is is BOYB and the food is consistently good. I will say their Caesar is a bit bland, but overall we really like the place.

Good steak dinner -- Ambler area

Another vote for Bridget's. We have never had a bad meal there. They do a great job with steak and I am particular. If you both want steak, their "Butcher Block" offerings are quite nice.

Panettone

True confession is good for the soul.....We go through many more than one during the holidays. LOL

Also if Whole Foods offers the cranberry one this year, we will buy a couple. So far, they have been non existent this year.

jules thin crust pizza

I am surprised to hear that about the prices. I haven't been, but I will go eventually. "Chains" in the area should be consistent.

We are coming for a visit in early October from Philadelphia. I have need had mussel bisque and we have put Dobson's on our list. What are the other "must haves" at Dobson's? My husband does not eat mussels. I could eat them all day!
