Restaurant notes: Voorhees getting three newcomers; the Sansom Street watch

Firecreek and Doghouse of Downingtown are making their way to New Jersey.

Restaurant notes: Voorhees getting three newcomers; the Sansom Street watch

The Voorhees Town Center, at Somerdale and Burnt Mill Roads (formerly Echelon Mall) has announced three new tenants: second locations for Firecreek and its offshoot Doghouse Gourmet Burgers (now in Downingtown) and Coffee Works Cafe (now in the Ritz Center). Coffee Works is looking at "fall," while Firecreek/Doghouse is projected for April.

Chef Ross Essner, who had a stake at Rx and Django and did time at Tap Room on 19th, is working with restaurateur Willy Bouikidis on 1518 Bar & Grill, a project at 1518 Sansom St. that I told you about way back on Jan. 5. "Not too fancy" is Bouikidis' take on the menu, which will mix American and Italian specialties. There will be a bar and open front windows, similar to Ladder 15 down the street. He's hoping to open in four to six weeks.
