I promised you a “part 2” and here it is. Lots of changes going on in Bucks County on the restaurant scene.
Quinoa, a Mexican-Peruvian restaurant, opened in Doylestown last month. You may be familiar with their sister restaurant, El Tule, in Lambertville, which has quickly become a favorite in the region. I’m ashamed to say we haven’t been to either but have been wanting to for quite some time. The family-run restaurant focuses on Peruvian dishes like cerviche and home-style dishes with quinoa, the now-popular South American grain full of protein, amino acids and good fiber. What could be wrong? Quinoa is at 762 N. Easton Road, just north of Doylestown (technically Plumstead). Call them at 215.348.2826, www.quinoarestaurantbyo.com or on Facebook. See the article in the Intelligencer today.
Dilly’s Corner, the popular ice cream stop in Centre Bridge/New Hope, is doing dinner again this winter. The Dilly’s Done Different dinner series looks pretty damn good (see their Facebook page). BYOB. Call 215.862.5333 for reservations. The restaurant is right by the Stockton bridge, at 2998 River Road.
Bucks Bounty, offering “country” dining in Erwinna for over 20 years, closed at the end of December. I spoke with the new owner today who will be opening the doors this week as Bellisimo’s with Italian food. The restaurant is at 991 River Road in Erwinna. Phone: 610.294.8106.
After 29 years serving New Hope with pizza, Italian dinners and more, the trattoria Cafe Europa sold the restaurant last November. Rumor is the previous owners of Bowman’s Tavern have bought the place.
The Second Street Pub, practically a landmark in Penns Park (Wrightstown Township), has a new name, Ralphie’s. The place has a rep as a “biker bar,” with a simple menu, a solid bar and sports on the TV 24/7. We’ll stop by and give it a look, and touch base with the new owner.
Finally, a little teaser. Some changes are coming to the Pineville Tavern. Stay tuned!
