Another season, another menu tune-up at Chestnut 7 in Chestnut Hill, which opened as a pub two years ago.

In May, the menu shifted toward Italian because management sensed a dearth of that cuisine in the area.

After closing a few days for repairs, it reopened yesterday and a new menu starts Tuesday, Sept. 3.

Co-owner Brian Harrington calls the menu "value focused," with $7-to-$10 sandwiches and pizzas, $12-to-16 entrees; happy hour from 4 to 7 p.m. daily; kids eat free on Sunday; lunch Wednesday to Sunday.
