Help a pregnant woman find food near Bryn Mawr Hospital
I'm 42 weeks pregnant and unless I go into labor before 4:30 today (unlikely), I'm being induced at Bryn Mawr Hospital at 7-ish tonight. In between my 4:30 appointment and 7, my midwife suggested that my husband and I have dinner. We're from West Chester and don't know much about Bryn Mawr area dining. Please help us find a good last meal as a couple! Here are our requirements:
Close to Bryn Mawr Hospital-we don't have much time
Somewhat casual-I'm very pregnant and don't fit into anything but black sweat pants
Not too noisy/hectic
Also, my husband is wondering where he can order decent pizza in the area
I would reccomend Mediterranean Grill.
For pizza, I must admit I love Pizzi's - but I am in the minority.
Also try Peace of Pizza in Bryn Mawr.
I don't have suggestions, but congratulations! I'm sure it will be a special meal no matter where you go.
There's Lourdas right by the Bryn Mawr train station. At that time of day you should be able to get in and out pretty quickly. Their food is very good. Tango is good, too. I'm just not sure how quick it would be. Carmine's is good too... just depends what you're in the mood for. Gullifty's would definitely be last on my list for your last meal as a couple.
I second the recommendations for Lourdas and Tango, both of which are close to the train station. Be warned that Lourdas is BYO and cash only. I also like Cafe Fresko on Lancaster Ave. (also BYO cash only). Carmine's has delicious food, but it's noisy and hectic. Also, the food is so rich, I wouldn't want to follow it with labor! For pizza, your husband can walk across the street to Pacilio's on Glenbrook Ave; much closer than Peace a Pizza in Rosemont. I would hold off on Gullifty's--plenty of time for that later when your screaming baby can sing harmony with all of the other noisy kids there.
I agree with Mediterranean Grill. It is perfect for your needs and is the closest place to the hospital.
If you prefer Chinese, Yangming is up the road too.
Very exciting. All good luck to you.
Both of my two children were born at BMH...I brought gyros from Lourdas to my wife after each birth. Nothing like Greek food while looking at your new child!
