As I was driving into work this morning, I saw a sign for the White Dog Cafe on the newly renovated buildings across the street from Anthropologie in Wayne. Is this the same White Dog from Philly? Anyone have any info?

Thanks!

    Yes, same one. They're opening a Wayne location. Although I've seen postings on different websites saying the Philly kitchen staff was fired and the menu will probably be different in Wayne - less local, organic ingredients -- but that's pretty much hearsay...

      The whole operation has been sold to Marty Grims (owner of Du Jour in Haverford, among other establishments), and I understand that a condition of the sale was that he maintain the organic/local image. I don't have details, so maybe that was just at the flagship restaurant.

        Thank you for that information. That tells me a lot.

      *sigh* I used to love going to White Dog for their bar food menu, but the food started to get inconsistent and I haven't been back in a while. Here's to hoping that they will get back on track!
