Restaurant notes: Westin trades up; Main Line doings

A downtown hotel restaurant rebrands; new Mexican restaurants in Wayne; and how about that new White Dog. And oh yes, the new Tiffin.

Restaurant notes: Westin trades up; Main Line doings

The Westin in Liberty Place is rebranding its restaurant (thanks to Philly shop Red Tettemer) and the new name will be Winthorpe & Valentine. You Philly-shot-movie buffs surely will know where this is coming from. If not, click here. The menus, signage, and stuff will be changed over within two months.

Updates on three restaurant projects in Wayne: Construction is well underway at the two Mexican restaurants opening across North Wayne Avenue from each other. Looks as if Matador will be opening first, in mid-September. Xilantro is aiming at early October.

Wayne's other newcomer, the White Dog Cafe branch on Lancaster Avenue, is expected to open in late September, says owner Marty Grims. Yes, this one has been in the works for a while.

The next branch of the Indian BYOB Tiffin at 847 Lancaster Ave. in Bryn Mawr is awaiting a health inspection, but the plan is to open Monday, Aug. 16, says owner Munish Narula.
