Autograph Brasserie Makes its Debut
Plus, three new restaurants open on the Main Line.
>> SIGNING BONUS: This month, prolific area restaurateur Marty Grims debuts Autograph Brasserie in the old Peppercorn location (503 W. Lancaster Ave., Wayne). Chef Ralph Patrick Fernandez—formerly of Forage and Haverford’s White Dog Cafe—heads the kitchen.
>> MORE OPENINGS: Come this spring, South Street staple Lorenzo & Sons should be open for business in its new West Chester location on the corner of High and Gay streets. In addition to its famous 28-inch pie, the shop will offer personalized pizzas, strombolis, calzones, cheesesteaks, sandwiches, and its own version of the over-the-top “Philly Taco.” … Two new Bryn & Dane’s outposts are coming to the Main Line in 2016. The healthy fast-casual chain will debut in Bryn Mawr Village this spring. Expect a Malvern location later this year.
>> THE HARD STUFF: Revered Manayunk whiskey joint The Goat’s Beard is gearing up for a takeover of the Xilantro space on North Wayne Avenue. More details coming soon.
