Paramour opening in Wayne

You'd barely recognize the old Taquet restaurant in the Main Line landmark.

Paramour opening in Wayne


Wednesday, Sept. 28 is opening day of Paramour, a dramatic renovation of the restaurant space at the Wayne Hotel in Wayne. Developer S.W. Bajus Ltd. expanded the operation's footprint beyond that of the previous occupant, Restaurant Taquet.

The ornate, early-20th-century lobby lounge has been punched up with early-21st-century furnishings. The bistro has plush semicircle banquettes and floor-to-ceiling windows, and the main dining room — now allowing for plenty of natural light — has an open kitchen, marble floors and an enormous glass-walled wine display. An eight-seat black granite chef’s bar accented with small tiles will showcase raw bar and crudo offerings.

The American-plus-steak-house main menu's dinner entrees start at $24 for chestnut ravioli, ahead into the $30s for steaks, and top at $45 for rack of lamb. It’s open for weekday lunch and daily dinner; a bar menu is served from lunchtime through late night daily.
