  1. Not speaking from experience (yet) but Trevi in Glenside (where Rizzo's used to be) has received very favorable reviews from fellow Hounds.

    1. What kind of food/atmosphere are you looking for?

      If you are looking for a quick bite in a pub-like atmosphere I would highly recommend the Drake Tavern.

      1. re: mitchh

        The Drake is convenient (we live around the corner), but the food is often WAY too salty. If we're driving, I prefer Vintage which is a little further down Old York Road in Abington (on the left, just past the YMCA). West Avenue Grill is consistent, if a bit ho-hum.

      2. Thanks for the help on short notice!!
        We ended up at Blue Sage old favorite. It was wonderful once again....We had avocado-red lentil tare-tar with homemade chips, a wonderful roasted tomato gazpacho, sliders and a mediterranean sampler...all was wonderful along with great service...never disappoints!
