Want pizza and Italian food? Or maybe tacos and Mexican food?
Starr Restaurant alums Justin Weathers and chef Joe Monnich (Dandelion, Parc) of the Lansdale hit Stove & Tap have set up Bella Vista and Al Pastor side by side in Exton's Eagleview Town Center (560 Wellington Square), joining Brickside Grille and Nudy's Cafe.
Both are contemporary bar-restaurants that share not only a liquor license but a kitchen.
At Bella Vista (484-341-8621), the trattoria menu includes apps, pizzas, and pastas priced in the teens, and a few larger plates, including short ribs ($26) and veal Milanese ($27).
At Al Pastor (484-341-8886), tacos are $9 to $15 for an order of three, and the top price on the menu is grilled Iberico pork steak with roasted nopales and poblanos, and chimichurri. Hours are 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.
Next door, chef Eric Yost, whose past includes White Dog Cafe, the Gables at Chadds Ford, Wyebrook Farm, and personal-chef services for film director M. Night Shyamalan, is aiming at March 1 for the opening of Suburban Restaurant & Beer Garden, which he says will be farm-focused, with all Pennsylvania beer and spirits and meats sourced from Wyebrook, 20 minutes away.
