Al fresco Philly Suburbs
I'm looking for recommendations for a nice place to eat al fresco in King of Prussia, mainline, west chester or somewhere off Rt 3 between West Chester and Havertown. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!! THANKS!
EEK! that's a tall order. hrm, you've got mckenzie's and meredith's off the top of my head. fine for drinks. spinach + artichoke dip at mckenzie's is pretty decent putting them first in the running. but there is a real void here.
my REAL advice, since you do say *any* suggestions, is to head down to the intersection of routes 3 and 252 in newtown square, get yourself a hoagie from a cut above deli, and do like i do and picnic in between cars in the parking lot. probably not exactly what you were looking for, but it's damn good i promise!
I would suggest 333 Belrose in Radnor. They have great food and a nice porch for al fresco dining. You can google their website and if you go, make sure someone orders the Java Pork Tenderloin.
Brasserie 73 in Skippack Village and Zacharias Creekside (Worcester) both have outdoor dining.
A few of the chains in KoP have outdoor seating: Maggiano's, Bahama Breeze, and Champps. Speaking of chains, the Iron Hill in Phoenixville has a patio. If you'd like to actually eat relatively decent food, the Black Lab in Phoenixville also has some tables outside.
Check out the July 2008 Issue of Philadelphia magazine that focused on the Best in Outdoor Dining in the city and towns around Philly.
