On September 18th, Earl’s Bucks County in Peddler’s Village rolled out a new menu that is a fusion of Earl’s Bucks County and Earl’s Prime (their previous steakhouse incarnation) with the re-introduction of a “steak-friendly” menu. The new menu will still keep the local “touch,” with a focus on sourcing product from Bucks and nearby. Bill Murphy, formerly from Stephen Starr Restaurants, is the new executive chef. Bill is a Doylestown resident with 15 years of culinary experience in the Philadelphia region.
Doc Baker’s Farmulations is moving – already! The Doylestown juice bar and restaurant is expanding to a new location after opening only last spring on State Street. Look for them soon at 22 North Main Street (previously House of Coffee). Check their Facebook page for updates.

We also send our kind thoughts and wishes to Abbate’s wife, Judy, who has been battling a rare form of cancer. Click here to donate to help with the Abbates’ costs.
