The gorgeous waterside setting on King of Prussia Road in Radnor that's now Pond and previously was Passerelle will become a Euro-style American comfort-fooder called Floret.
Opening is aimed at December. Pond will remain open through the transition. Pond owner Raelyn Harman will maintain an ownership interest and will honor Pond gift certificates and party reservations.
Floret won't be a big-budget affair. Owners Scott Morrison, who runs Berwyn's Nectar, and Dan Kremin, who cheffed at Barclay Prime and Buddakan, are aiming to draw frequent repeat business with entrees under $20.
There will be several menus -- hors d’oeuvres and small plates to pair with specialty drinks, craft beers, and wines in the 90-seat lounge, plus a selection of burgers and salads.
