Radice in Blue Bell Wow!

i was there 2 weeks ago and the food was great. everything we had was cooking perfectly and we enjoyed ourselves. the only problem is the prices on drinks. they were priced as if we were in center city. also the service was not too hot. i know they just opened but it seemed like everyone that worked there had no clue what they were doing. they should have hired some people that have experience in the business.

McCrady's, Fig and ?? (Charleston)

I just got married in charleston a month ago and we had our rehearsal dinner at mccradys and everything was absolutely amazing. wonderful food and a wonderful atmosphere. Then we had our wedding reception at peninsula grill and it was wonderful as well. I would have your dinner sunday at peninsula grill over snob. Fig is also a great place for dinner.

As long as we're talkin' pizza - Blue Bell???

Bacco's pizza is my favorite. I have lived in blue bell for 24 years and all other pizza in the area is terrible.

There is a free range turkey farm in the skippack area. It is near merrymead farms. I don't remember the name but they have great turkeys. They are free range and fresh not frozen. you have to pick up on tuesday or wednesday before thanksgiving.
