Written by County Lines Magazine

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

Café to Candlelight

Classy café by day, sophisticated dining by night is the latest at Bar Reverie. The expertly crafted, travel-inspired menus range from breakfast pastries and coffee to French-inflected dinner options including Filet Mignon Au Bordelaise and Petit Poulet Roti. Bask in the black-and-white ambiance and peruse the 100-bottle curated wine list from around the globe. On-staff sommeliers and semi-private tasting bar are more reasons to return. Serving breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner. 4017 Kennett Pk., Greenville, DE.

Lunar Meal

Join 22 diners around a communal table in Baba Bucha’s Phoenixville tasting room for a Full Moon Feast on October 28, the sixth dinner celebrating the full moon tradition. Chef Olga Sorzano, owner of Baba’s Brew, serves up a themed dinner keyed to the moon — October’s Hunter’s Moon meal features bison, duck and seasonal ingredients. Designed to feed both body and soul, the tasting experience is part of a recurring series. $125, tickets online. 333 Morgan St., Phoenixville.
