Pino DiMeo, who opened Pizzeria DiMeo in Andorra in 2012 is now opening Mozzeria, a BYOB osteria and wood-fired pizzeria in Wayne.
DiMeo plans a mozzarella and salumi bar that specializes in Italian cheeses and cured meats. Last month, DiMeo and his son took a research trip to Naples in pursuit of the best mozzarella they could find.
Mozzeria will be located at 133 North Wayne Avenue, right next to the Wayne train station. DiMeo aims to open the restaurant in spring of 2014.
Main Liners are just a couple weeks away from enjoying donuts and ice cream at Wayne Bar. In what was the home of the Suburban and Wayne Times. As the name suggests, the store will offer donuts, as well as coffee and for later in the day, ice cream.
The Wayne Donut Bar fills a gaping cavity of sweets in the Main Line town. In recent years the town has lost Dairy Queen, Sweet Daddy’s, Cold Stone and Gumdrops and Sprinkles.

Zoës Kitchen brought its quick-serve Mediterranean to the Philadelphia market in the Spring with stores in Bryn Mawr, Collegeville, Marlton and Newtown. Now, Property has the scoop on Zoës Kitchen’s next four Philadelphia-area locations.
Zoës Kitchen [Official Site]
Zoë’s Kitchen — the Mediterranean-inspired chain restaurant where most of the food is grilled — already had three local spots (Collegeville, Marlton and Newtown) when it opened yet another outpost in the Greater Philadelphia market in May of this year in Bryn Mawr. That must have worked out because there are now four more to come: Malvern, Willow Grove, Cherry Hill and Wayne. It seems people like grilled food — especially when someone else is manning the grill.

When Nectar owner Scott Morrison brought that trendy Asian dining concept to Berwyn a decade ago, he was giving the area something it didn’t have. And now he’s done the same thing out in Wayne, bringing the Main Line an above-average Italian restaurant with a cool design and an unstuffy, lively atmosphere. The pizzas are aiming to be like Stella’s, and while they’ll probably get there, they weren’t on my early visit. For now, I’ll enjoy the fresh cow’s-milk burrata, rigatoni with Sunday gravy, any of the tableside-tossed salads, and desserts like the gelato-filled cookie sandwich (think Chipwich, only better), while plenty of wines by the glass and craft beers keep the night well-lubricated.

Radnor fire chief Michael Maguire told the Inquirer that the fire which started in a ventilation shaft near the grill will “require a lot of cleanup.”

This is a two-story house with finished basement, but from the outside it reads like a long, low ranch house. The house was built in the 1950s but has recently undergone a complete renovation.
The center hall has inlaid wood floors, and a chair rail separates the white woodwork from the peach-colored walls. The kitchen ceiling is wood-paneled with glossy paint that reflects light. The cabinets are cream-colored, and there’s an extra sink in the stone-topped center island. The first-floor master suite has two bathrooms, which sounds like a good investment in the long-term health of any relationship.

This extravagant three-bedroom house has a lot of the “unexpected,” as the listing puts it–but that’s primarily true of the decor rather than the inherent qualities of the home itself. From a bedroom with two different animal prints and contrasting floral patterns to a living room with an elephant painting and a large wooden giraffe statue, this is not a home that shies away from upended juxtapositions.
The freestanding bathtub looks like it came straight out of Waterworks, while another bathroom’s blurry sliding doors look like they were airlifted from Grandma’s row house. A Murano chandelier hangs in the entryway not far from a faux Warhol portrait of Marilyn Monroe. A candelabra in il vento.
Best of all, though, is the basement, which is fitted out to please the most curious child– or, perhaps, simply a curiously childish adult.
