Paramour’s Dirty Martini: The Muddy Pothole

Muddy-Pothole-MartiniHave you lost a tire in a pothole this winter? Then pour some out to your dead Firestone at Paramour. The Main Line bar is offering the Muddy Pothole cocktail to pay tribute to all of those dead homies popped tires. The martini might bare a little too much resemblance to the slush splashing out of a pothole but we’re somehow attracted to this very dirty martini. The Muddy Pothole is Absolut Vodka, Muddled Kalamata Olives, Dry Vermouth and Olive Juice then garnished with black olives (tires). And it’s half-price during Paramour’s Liquid Therapy happy hour, that’s just $5.50.

Wayne’s Honeystone: From Ballet Room to Basil Garden

It’s homes like this one that beg the question: Would the owners ever have to leave the house? Ever want to leave the house?

To begin, the formal dining room can hold 36 guests. The nearby music room is equally spacious, maybe for an after-dinner concert? That room also offers private seating areas should tête-à-têtes ensue. From here there’s access to a cherry-paneled library that has a view of the swimming pool.

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.

UPDATE: Mozzeria will now be named Ardè.

Donuts and Ice Cream Are Coming to Wayne

wayne-donut-ice-creamMain 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.

Zoë’s Opens Four More Suburban Philadelphia Locations

zoes kitchenZoë’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.

Where We’re Eating: Avero Craft Pizzeria


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.
