Dinner tomorrow in Phoenixville

Hello fellow Hounds!

We are headed to the Colonial Theater tomorrow night to see a friend's band play. What are the best choices for an early Friday dinner these days? I have been hearing the Black Lab is declining. We are open to everything but Indian. My husband isn't a fan. Thanks!

  1. Simple meal but Vecchia Pizza is producing some of the best Pizza in the philadelphia area.

    Iron Hill and Molly Maguires are both there and the food is ok.

      Is Vecchia BYOB? We have Iron Hill and Molly Maguires here.

      1. re: crazyspice

        Yes Vecchia is BYO.. very limited menu but the quality is great.

        And yes I forgot you were in the Lansdale/North Wales area.

    2. Daddy Mim's for creative cajun par excellence. Not all fire and brimstone killer peppery stuff, but that is available. And is BYO. The Crab Cheesecake is the killer app of the decade.

      1. Higher end is Majolica. Almost across the street, BYOB, and just very good.

          Majolica is wonderful, even after the change of menu. I just wonder whether you can get reservations for a Friday on short notice. Perhaps the snow/weather will help.

          +1 for Daddy Mim's.

          Also Thai L'Elephant is good thai but its not directly in downtown Phoenixville.

          1. re: cwdonald

            Here's another vote for Majolica.
            Black Lab second.

            1. re: arepo

              We have a reservation at Majolica! Thank you for your help. I will report back this weekend.

        2. Do you like Thai? Thai L'Elephant is half a block away and very good! It's BYOB. I can also vouch for how good Daddy Mims is too.

          1. Actually Thai L'Elephant is now. They moved about a year ago to the corner right across from Vecchia Pizza on the same side, only half a block down from The Colonial if that.
