Majolica to rise again

Guess what: Majolica in Phoenixville is coming back.

Majolica to rise again

It's been hard to figure out what's going on at Majolica, which closed last week.

Now comes word that after weighing other options, the husband-and-wife team Andrew Deery and Sarah Johnson have decided to reinvent the Phoenixville BYOB.

They're changing the menu to, as Johnson calls it, "more French bistro-y." Prices are falling by 40 percent or so. It's sporting a new logo. A new sign went up on Bridge Street. The place has been painted and mildly redecorated.

Reopening is scheduled for March 18.

“The changes we are rolling out are a direct response to these economic times,” said Deery, the chef, in a statement, “but we’re excited about making the Majolica experience available for anyone.” Johnson wants the restaurant to be a frequent visit, not devoted to the special-occasion crowd.

The couple are adding a private Farmhouse Room for tasting menus.

Deery will add appetizers from $8 to $12 and entrees starting at $16. There also will be a $25 chef's choice prix-fixe option (appetizer, entree and dessert). Hours will be 5 to 11 p.m. Wednesdays through Sundays.

 

Added menu (5:54 p.m.)
