April Food News in the Brandywine Valley

Written by County Lines Magazine

A few of our favorite things to share this month about local food and drink

Dine & Donate

Mark your calendars for West Chester’s Dine & Donate Events. Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant will donate 20% of your food bill to Safe Harbor for meals on April 10, 17 and 24, 5:30–7:30 p.m. Plus, Bar Avalon plans a 20% donation on food and takeout sales to the West Chester Cooperative on April 16, 3 p.m. to closing.

Scenes & Sips

Quirky theater night, anyone? Check out People’s Light’s Flight Night for a fun wine-and-dine experience on April 10. Held at The Farmhouse, this event features a flight of wine coupled with a flight of five-to-ten-minute plays linked to Pulitzer Prize finalist Madeleine George’s comedic play, Hurricane Diane, with a mythological twist. Celebrate Dionysus, Greek god of wine and theater, while indulging in both. Tickets $40. 39 Conestoga Rd., Malvern.

Downingtown Dining

Restaurateurs Bryan and Andrea Sikora — of La Fia, Merchant Bar, Hearth Kitchen — are adding to their Brandywine Valley eateries. The newcomer, The Noble Goat, is planned for a summer opening in Downingtown’s new-ish River Station development, joining Twin Valley Coffee. Look for an eclectic menu along with serious cocktails. Keep an eye out for the latest location from this accomplished duo. 406 Brandywine Ave., Downingtown. On Instagram @Noble_Goat_Downingtown.

Meals for Many

Make a difference for those in need. The Chester County Knights of Columbus Food Packing Event once again welcomes the entire community to assemble meals for the hungry in developing countries. Be part of this widespread effort and help pack 45,000 meals locally on April 13, 8 a.m. to noon, at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church gym. Reserve your spot to help those in need. 332 Manor Ave., Downingtown.

Fieri Chicken

A new location of Chicken Guy! opened in the KOP Food Court in February. Part of Guy Fieri’s (of Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives) franchise, this spot is run by Kevin Cooper, Delco native and winner of Guy’s Chance of a Lifetime cooking show. Enjoy freshly brined and specially spiced buttermilk chicken tenders, crispy sandwiches and Fieri’s Flavortown shakes. Check out their signature sauces while you’re there. 160 N.
