Food News/ May 2021
A few of our favorite things to share this month about local food and drink
Equestrian season isn’t complete without specialty cocktails, and not coincidentally May 30th marks National Mint Julep Day. This timely holiday is the perfect excuse to toast our local equestrian roots. Support small and choose whiskey from local distilleries like Manatawny Still Works, Brandywine Branch Distillery or Pennsylvania Distilling Company for some Chester County flavor. Then grab your fanciest hat or most colorful bow tie, mix up a couple of juleps and enjoy a themed happy hour. KentuckyDerby.com/Mint-Julep.
Grab a Slice.
Weekends call for pizza and Chester County has plenty of options including a new addition, Revival Pizza Pub, coming to Chester Springs. From the owners of Stove & Tap, this new pie place will serve specialty pizzas and artisan flatbreads, plus live music and plenty of outdoor seating. Until you can add a new source to your Friday night pizza rotation, check out Stove & Tap’s new West Chester location on Gay Street. 701 Juniper Ave., Chester Springs. RevivalPizzaPub.com.
New in Town.
There’s plenty to look forward to this spring including West Chester’s expanding dining scene. The much-anticipated Greystone Oyster Bar is now open with fresh seafood and handcrafted cocktails. And keep an eye out for new spots like Peter Clark Kitchen for locally sourced sandwiches, soups and salads, and a new location for Sedona Taphouse’s hand-cut steaks and rich pastas. So many new options! Check social media for updates on openings. DowntownWestChester.org.
Get ready to snack. Herr’s, headquartered in southern Chester County, recently celebrated their 75th anniversary by releasing a limited-edition Homestyle potato chip and launching 75 days of celebrations. With a mission of philanthropy, Herr’s is giving back to local communities and fans. To get involved, join their #ChipInChallenge by buying lunch (including a bag of chips) for a stranger and sharing on social media to encourage other small acts of kindness. Feel good while enjoying one of PA’s favorite snacks. Herrs.com.
