Estia Taverna in Radnor ready to open

Estia Greek Taverna (222 N. Radnor Chester Rd., Wayne, 484-581-7124), a 200-seat offshoot of Center City's Greek destination, Estia. It's a twin of an Estia Taverna that opened in March in Marlton.

Estia Taverna in Radnor ready to open

Shortly after 5 p.m. Monday, Aug. 4, you may hear the shattering of plates if you're in Radnor Township.

It's only the opening of Estia Greek Taverna (222 N. Radnor Chester Rd., Wayne, 484-581-7124), a 200-seat offshoot of Center City's Greek destination, Estia, and the twin of an Estia Taverna that opened in March in Marlton.

The Radnor location - across from Radnor High's ballfields in a development that includes HubBub Coffee and Honeygrow (and down the road a Pietro's Coal-Oven Pizzeria) - has a wrap-around patio for outdoor dining surrounded by flowers and greenery, as well as white-washed stone arches, repurposed wood plank floors and table tops and full bar.

This is a family affair, owned by Pete and Nick Pashalis, along with Pete’s brother-in-law, John Lois, and run by Pete’s son, Gus, and daughter, Anastasia, and John’s son, Chris. They also own Pietro's.

Estia Taverna's menu is seafood-forward, with appetizers and salads from $7 to $13, with dinner entrees from $15 to $28. Lobster is sold at market price. 

It will be open nightly beginning at 5 p.m.: Monday through Thursday and Sundays until 10 p.m., and Fridays and Saturdays until 11 p.m. Lunch and brunch will be added a few weeks after opening.
