Dinner & A Movie in Phoenixville

paoli40 Mar 9, 2007 06:12 AM

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.

    What is the Funky 'lil Kitchen all about? Where is it?

      What's good to eat at Black Lab?

        wow, I really like everything I've had- been there a ton of times. great calamari, for lunch- turkey sandwich is so good, burger & fries good too. dinner- fish is always great, often get a special, enjoyed lobster with crabmeat. do not skip dessert, especially the "special of the day"

        I recently went to Seven Stars & really enjoyed it- great portions too!

          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.

            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.

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