Chestnut 7 is retooling

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.

"It's a really tough market in Chestnut Hill and we are doing everything we can to stay competitive and offer what we believe our customers want," he said. "We think this could be it."
