Winberie's in Wayne gives way to Black Powder Tavern

New look at the Wayne watering hole.

Winberie's in Wayne gives way to Black Powder Tavern

Winberie's, on Valley Forge Road near Chesterbrook in Wayne, has a top-to-bottom redo at the hands of corporate master Select Restaurants Inc,

It's now Black Powder Tavern, making a nod to the building's history. Legend has it that Friedrich Von Steuben designated the tavern as a secret black powder munitions stash for Continental army couriers during the winter of 1777-78.

Menu covers small plates, soups, salads, pastas, burgers, sandwiches, large plates and dessert; a few sample dishes include Cheesy Devils on Horseback (dates stuffed with gorgonzola and wrapped in applewood smoked bacon); pastrami-smoked salmon Reuben; Victory Beer-battered fish and chips; and Cajun mac and cheese.

Lunch starts Oct. 22.

Twenty-one beers are on draft, 21 bottles.

Eastman Design set out to make the building look more like a tavern and less like a bistro with a framed copy of the Declaration of Independence and Revolutionary portraits and scenes from nearby Valley Forge. There's a new, resawn oak bar, and resawn oak is used for the flooring and table tops.
