Dinner & A Movie in Phoenixville

I thought we'd go to the Colonial Theater to see "Volver" on Saturday night. Does anyone have any suggestions for an early dinner before the movie? We LOVE Majolica but want to try someplace different. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

  1. Always enjoyed the Columbia Hotel; good food and drinks.

    1. Black Lab- great food!

      1. Another vote for the Black Lab Bistro. Great food and BYO.

        1. Ohhh, Volver is playing at the Colonial! Good to know since we're kid-less Saturday night. We'll be heading to Twin Bays Cafe right off of Rt 23. We've been there a handful of times and have always been incredibly impressed by the courteous waitstaff and the portion sizes. Everything has always been delicious, to boot.

            So, we went to Twin Bays and sadly, our meal wasn't as memorable as previous occasions. I had the duck (tasteless) and my husband had the Veal Osso Bucco and he thought it was only ok. The French Onion soup (they make it with apple cider) was delicious as usual.
            I wish we had gone to Funky 'lil Kitchen instead. Oh well.

          2. We loved Black Lab Bistro. Majolica is also excellent, but very difficult to get a reservation. Another good place on 23 is The Thai Place.
