Chris Scarduzio Opens Teca in Newtown Square

Teca opened last night at 191 Newtown Street in Newtown Square. It is the second Teca, the original is in West Chester. At the helm is Chris Scarduzio who came on board after receiving a call from his friend Alberto Guadagnini.

It is Scarduzio’s lone restaurant as the chef winds down Mia in Atlantic City and walked away from his East Passyunk project.

Teca will feature an extensive menu with Neapolitan pizzas and contemporary Italian dishes. Check out a few photos from the opening night, and take a peek at the Teca Newtown Square menu.
