Main Line Food Blog

What to eat in Philadelphia's near Western suburbs


This is about food… food on the Main Line…. or NEAR the Main Line… or sometimes maybe not. As I mentioned, these posts will be mostly about lunches in the Lower Merion/Havertown/Manayunk/Roxborough area.

These are mostly modified posts I had written for the Facebook group “Main Line Restaurant Reviews” which though an excellent resource, is a closed group. This blog should make these posts available to a wider audience. I do have some favorite spots, so there will be duplicate postings for different dishes.  I generally don’t write negative reviews. If I have a bad meal, and bring it to the attention of the powers that be, and they don’t display any sense of contrition, I just don’t return.

Occasionally, I may post about dinner  here or in the City, or about places to buy food for home prep, but for the most part, these will be reasonable noontime repasts, and the places chosen will probably have Irish whiskey behind the bar.
