i'm looking for restaurant recommendations in west chester for dinner... i'm not interested in fine dining, but not super casual either, with mid-range prices. seafood, asian or mexican fit the bill. anything you'd suggest?

  1. My new favorite place in W.C. is Avalon, on High St. Great food, very creative but reasonable, and they have a drop-dead gorgeous backyard patio for outdoor dining.

    1. i love trattoria alberto- italian and very yummy!

      1. Spence's is always reliably good and has a nice atmosphere.

        1. Avalon is wonderful. Great food AND great service. Cusine is modern Italian.

          1. Kooma is good sushi/asian

            1. This post is verrrrry old! Spence Cafe vanished long ago and Avalon has sprung back to life as a BYO Italian.

                what? I don't think Spence was ever gone. Though they may have recently changed chefs.

                  Okay... then what's the place I'm thinking of that was on High Street where Doc McGrogan's (?) is now? Never mind -- I just remembered -- it was Turk's Head!!! Sorry!!!!!!!

                  Spence Cafe is open and the owners have since opened another restaurant that's different than Spence called Butterfish
