L'Angolo (Blue Bell)

I had a nice dinner there last week. Grilled Calamari Salad, Bruschetta, and one of the Gnocchi's.. my friend and I really liked everything. I am looking forward to going back. We asked for a side of sauteed spinach, and it wasnt on the menu.. they made it for us and it was good. Service was good. No reason not to go back again.

Vic Sushi in Spring House

Vic is phenomenal - period.
Best rolls/sashimi in the area. Vic's creativity and dedication to his art are evident in every plate he creates. Nicest staff/family. We are there once a week - minimum. If you love great fish and creative rolls, Vic is unparalleled around here.

zaccaria's creekside

went on saturday night with a large party.
7 out of 8 loved it!

If you haven't been, definitely worth it.

meats, cheeses, duck, gnochi, coq au, were all fabulous - as well as the desserts!

only drawback is the noise - but you get used to it pretty quick.

dinner was lovely.

the farmer's daughter

We went Friday night, hung out at the bar, and LOVED IT!

The bar menu is amazing:
Pretzels - they make them there and they come out warm with a truffle butter - to die for!
Buratta - comes out hot with grilled bread and pesto - amazing!
Sliders - really good and the fries were YUMMY!
Wings - spicy and sweet and delicious!
Crab coquette - was good.. wasn't spectacular...

Dessert was the special - banana pancakes with walnuts and special syrup... They were off the charts!

Loved the bar, quiet, a little dark, sexy, and tv's to watch the NCAA tourney. Drank a lovely Napa Chardonnay that I liked a ton!

Totally going back... and we never even really looked at the dinner menu.
Check it out!

It's getting close! Cantina Feliz

I went last night - loved the guac and chips, service was very attentive, and my fish tacos were good, nice fiavor, soft tortillas were perfect. I also liked the house "salsa" which was more like a hot sauce - I put it on my tacos and was quite happy. definitely going back. I like the smaller portions, and the apps sounded really good!

The Grand Fromage cheese shop, Skippack

This is a wonderful shop. I discovered it earlier this year. They carried a product line called "vervacious" - accompaniments to the cheeses. Outstanding! Totally recommend a visit.

Radice in Blue Bell Wow!

Went last night.. food was very good no complaints. Had the grilled octopus, scallops, pizza with zuchini, gnochi and the salad with the prosciutto. Staff was reasonable friendly and the place was packed at 7:30pm - midsummer in Blue Bell... unheard of. Anyway - only issue was time. We waited WAY to long in between them bringing out the plates.. Toto stopped by but didnt introduce himself. the food, and the desserts - were good.. so was the bread. Just too slow. We didnt get home - which is across the street until 9:45pm. 4people, with a reservation, middle of the week, mid august, in blue bell.....

Will try it again, will pray for faster service.

Vic Sushi in Spring House

we went to VIC last night and loved it. The Tiger Roll, the Spicy Combo Roll, the Sashimi Roll, and another one.. maybe the Lover Roll... they were awesome! the fish was fresh and delicious!!! Vic and his wife are VERY NICE! only would ask for the wasabi to be hotter!!! Cute little place.. nothing fancy.. just really good, innovative, fun rolls. If you like FISH, you'll love it. Prices are VERY reasonable for this area, and we will be back regularly. Check it out!!!

Tried the new MaGerks (Bent Elbo) For Lunch.

We went the other night.. it didnt seem very expensive... but I wasn't really looking at the prices.. but the soft pretzel with the crab dip was insanely yummy! I had the tender tails and they were cooked perfectly. Everyone I was with liked what they ordered as well. If you are looking for a good hangout with some fun, good food, I would try it! We're definitely going back again...

Melodia Grill in souderton

was there a few weeks ago for dinner. staff was very nice.. food was good! I would certainly try it again. Everyone's dinner was good except mine.. but I ordered wrong... definitely worth a try to see what you think.. general tso's chicken was very good, duck rolls were good, tuna was good.. it's got kind of a blended menu.. but it's interesting and worth the effort.

Le Gourmet - BYOB in North Wales

I went last night. Two people, $60 with tip. Place is nice, servers were pleasant.. food was good. Two caesar salads, one gnocchi plain, and one risotto di mare... salads were good, seafood and spicy sauce were good, gnocchi and risotto were ok...
The bread and the dipping oil were VERY good and interesting.
The menu is extensive and has lots of ways to work it... salads, soups, apps.. entrees were fairly interesting and they had a lot of specials.
They are open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. They have a nice seating area as mentioned above... seems like a nice place.. will go back and try again. Lunch menu looks promising... definitely worth a try..
