Is it still in the works or did they pack it in?

  1. According to Michael Klein project is delayed. One of the effect of the delay is they lost their chef and have to find a new one. This article speculated they would open by the end of February this year. http://www.philly.com/philly/blogs/th...

      Thanks CW - have been wondering what was happening there. I am less than a mile from The Mainland and we don't have a lot of options up here in Harleysville.

        I can always depend upon you CW.
        I guess I can wait another month or so.

      2. Despite set backs regarding ADA compliance (which forced the Inn and original Chef to amicably part ways), the Mainland Inn is in fact getting ready to reopen. No formal date is set yet but complete renovations are well under way. The restaurant has been completely gutted and is in the process of being transformed into a beautiful space that will maintain its historic charm with some modern touches. The menu will be all organic and will showcase what is grown on Quarry Hill Farm along with vegetables that will be cultivated in gardens dug on the Inn's 8 acres of land. Look for a late June/early July opening.
