    1. re: mookleknuck

      I inadvertently lied. The last time I had driven by the former Watkins Dairiette found it filled with construction. But this indicates that they've been open for a couple of weeks: http://www.statecollege.com/news/loca...

    2. 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.

      1. Not new, but new to me is the American Ale House in Toftrees. I really enjoy a bowl of steamed shrimp or mussels with a bowl of jambalaya and a beer! It's also entertaining watching them cook right there.

        1. PS: There's also a Sichuan hot pot place scheduled to open in September in the former Westerly hi-way pizza place.

          1. 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).
