Wonderful news for you Main Liners:

Gianluca and Rosemarie Demontis of the Rittenhouse Italian BYOB Melograno have inked a lease for a second restaurant, at 816 W. Lancaster Ave. in Bryn Mawr - the former Ha Long Bay next to Verdad and two doors from Bryn Mawr Film Institute.

Fraschetta, which has a June target date, will be a second BYOB. Rosemarie is behind the rustic design, which will use reclaimed wood. Luca, a Roman native, is building his Roman menu around slow cooking, especially porchetta d'Ariccia.

Also expect Homemade pastas, and grilled meats and fish. Lunchtime will be casual, with panini and such.
