Steak in Montgomery County

Thank you all for such great information and opinions. Love watching how a thread meanders. Our dinner has been put off to this coming Saturday, and we're going to Creeds.

Steak in Montgomery County

We went to Bridget's once and hubby didn't care for it, though I would be willing to try again. I assumed Fireside was pretty much just a bar.

Steak in Montgomery County

Looking for a nice steak dinner this weekend. I'm in the Ambler area and would prefer to stay in the suburbs as opposed to going into the city. Can you help? Thanks!

Bistro Albertino wilow grove pa

We've been there a few times. I think the food and service are excellent. I can't understand why there are so many empty tables, maybe people just don't know about it?

Fresh food restaurant?

Didn't the place that was originally going to take over Finn McCools in Ambler say they were going to be all fresh food? Or am I imagining that?

Looking for a "somewhat" special dinner...

We had our anniversary dinner at Stella Sera last night, and we couldn't have been more pleased. Friendly staff, the food was delicious and a cozy atmosphere on a chilly night. fyi - OpenTable showed no opening for when we wanted to go, but I called and had no problem making a reservation. I'm not a chocoholic, but the no flour chocolate cake was just fantastic!

Shanachie replacement

I just went past Shanachie and noticed the big For Sale banner is down. Has anybody heard anything - sold, new owners etc?

Ambler Restaurant Week

We're going to Bridgets on Tuesday night for the first time. Thought this might be the only way we can afford it ;)

WRETCHED Meal at Tiffin Last Week

We had dinner at Saffron in Ambler last night - perfect as always. Even though they couldn't find our reservation, they were very gracious and seated us immediately. We live in Ft. Washington and also make the Mt. Airy drive frequently, it's easy and quicker than you think it will be.

Saffron in Ambler

I'm taking my husband to Saffron for a birthday dinner this weekend. I've never had Indian food before, so I'm clueless as to what is an appropriate wine to bring. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Arpeggio, Spring House, review or comments?

You can always depend on Arpeggio. Their salads are great, too!

Pizza in Conshy/Plymouth Meeting/Lafayette Hill

I heartily agree - the flatbreads at Earth are delicious. My husband enjoys their home brewed beers also.

Reasonably priced restaurant in Chalfont area?

I live in Ft. Washington and will be meeting friends who live in Montgomeryville for dinner. We usually meet in Chestnut Hill area, but I thought there must be good places towards the Chalfont area. Anyone have any suggestions for restaurants or other equidistant towns? Thanks.

Need bagel place in or near Ambler

Do you have any more information about that new bage shop in Dreshertown Shopping Center? Is it moving into the spot where the old one was? When?

They do have them in bulk, but only a handful of varieties.

Need bagel place in or near Ambler

What about In The Bag in Maple Glen? Their bagels are very good, though on the weekends you need to get there early before they sell out.

Trattoria Maria closed?

We tried to order lunch from Trattoria Maria in Spring House and no one answered the phone. Rumor has it they have gone out of business. Heard anything else?

I need a new 'old reliable'

Betharu,
I agree, it's a nice feeling walking into a place 'where everyone knows your name'.

I need a new 'old reliable'

Thanks for the suggestions. I've tried and liked Bocelli's and Mirna's. I'm always up for a a good margarita - are El Sarape's as good as the ones at Tex Mex?

I'm hoping the new Broad Axe opens soon - it looks nice. Any info about the new wine bar going in in Ambler? Any idea of food, prices...?

My husband and I usually go to KCs Alley for dinner on Friday nights. Any ideas for someplace new - Ambler area and reasonably priced?
