>>CHEESE, PLEASE: Chefs Christine and Nick Kondra’s Cornerstone Cheese & Charcuterie has been buzzing since its debut in downtown Wayne (1 West Ave.) in early fall 2015. As the name implies, you’ll find an extensive arsenal of grab-and-go meats, cheeses, pickles and breads, as well as house-made pâtés and sausages. With only 14 seats at their chef's counter and a busy, regular dinner service—reservations are highly recommended. Space is BYOB; weekend brunch and lunch also available.
>> DEVON DOINGS: Acclaimed chef Marc Vetri reveals his intent to bring his Roman trattoria, Amis, to the Devon Yard project, the stalled Urban Outfitters-backed development on the former site of Waterloo Gardens. Expect house-made pasta and a seafood-heavy menu, similar to the menu at the Center City flagship. Pizzeria Vetri will also join the mix at the Yard. An opening date has yet to be announced.
>> END OF AN ERA: After 65 years, the iconic D’Ignazio’s Towne House in Media has closed its doors to the general public. Following the departure of the Baltimore Pike staple, where orders of clams casino, New York strips and martinis were the norm, the property will be acquired by E. Kahn Development Corporation.
