Restaurant notes: Dueling pianos in Delco

Jolly Weldon is taking over a landmark in Morton.

Restaurant notes: Dueling pianos in Delco


Jolly Weldon, whose Jolly's Piano Bar at 20th and Chestnut Streets has revived the tradition of dueling pianos, is fixing up a landmark restaurant space in the Springfield, Delaware County, area for a second location.

Jolly's will roll out as soon as Valentine's Day, he predicts, in the former Rosario's at 13 S. Morton Ave. in Morton.

The building will host the dueling-piano concept, a sports bar, a grill room, and a 200-seat banquet facility. The sports bar/grill will open first, with the entertainment on tap for March. Chef Steve Quici will do American cuisine.

He also said his plans for a crab house at 15th Street and Oregon Avenue are on hold, as there's been a snag in the liquor license. He hopes to have that running by June.
