Avero: Major pizzeria on way to the Main Line

Devon to get an upscale pizzeria.

Avero: Major pizzeria on way to the Main Line


House-made pasta, mozzarella and doughnuts, salads made tableside, wood-fired pizzas.

Lots of hot buttons are being pressed by restaurateur Scott Morrison, who is in the planning stages of a casual but high-minded Main Line restaurant I'm sure you'll hear a lot about in the coming months.

It's called Avero, and it's being teed up for an early 2013 opening in Devon Square Shoppes (821 W. Lancaster Ave. in Devon) - where the Wine & Spirits Shop was, in the same center as the Whole Foods.

Morrison, who had a hand in some big projects such as Chelsea Tavern, Nectar, and alas Maia, is working with Vince Schiavone on the fast-casual restaurant. Morrison said it would be affordable despite the "four-star" ingredients and "signature mixologist area" at the bar for drinkmaking demos.
