WHATS NEW IN STATE COLLEGE
TAKING MY KIDS BACK TO PSU THIS WEEKEND. ANYTHING NEW OR GREAT IN STATE COLLEGE?
Fuji Jade still has the best sushi in town, and they recently added a new Sichuan menu that is pretty damn fantastic.
Not sure if you've been to Gigi's -- ownership and chefs have changed recently, they're now doing "upscale Southern", whatever that may mean.
I've had some luck with a few of their small plates, and the wine list is decent.
PS: There's also a Sichuan hot pot place scheduled to open in September in the former Westerly hi-way pizza place.
Aaaaand.... as if four Sichuan places in town weren't enough, a fifth one is opening soon next to Five Guys on College Ave., apparently by the former chef of Sichuan Bistro.
There's also the Lemont Brewing Co. scheduled to open some time in October, and a Thai/Sushi place in Lemont (don't know when that's opening).
