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.
