After a summer of extensive renovation, the space at the Eagle Village Shops that was georges', Le Mas Perrier and Le Mas will be reborn Sept. 3 as Peppercorn (503 W. Lancaster Ave., Wayne, 610-964-2588).
Concept is billed as refined American, and chef David Murray - one of a few holdovers from the previous incarnation - seemingly will offer something for everyone, from lamb burgers and herb-roasted chicken wings up to USDA Prime Center Cut 12-ounce New York strip steak and USDA Prime 8-ounce filet mignon (prices run the board from $7 to $48).
Running the front of the house is Aaron Kavulich, who ran restaurants in Pittsburgh.
Just as the menu will be all over the map, so will the rustic-elegant decor in the many dining areas. In a nod to the name, a wall of artisan-crafted pepper mills is set up by the front door.
It will be open for lunch Tuesday through Friday from 11:30 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. Dinner will be served from 5:30 p.m. until 10 p.m. Tuesdays through Thursday, until 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday and until 9 p.m. on Sunday. A la carte brunch will be served on Sundays from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. The bar will be open until midnight or later. Closed Monday.
