Siggie Wilson goes bistro route in Montco


Old-timers remember Helen Sigel Wilson, one of the city's most decorated amateur golfers of the 1940s and 1950s, who made her living with the popular restaurants Helen Sigel Wilson's in Center CIty and L'Auberge in Wayne.

In 1997, after retiring to become a corporate recruiter, Helen got back into the game with Siggie's L'Auberge in West Conshohocken with her son, George "Siggie" Wilson.

Siggie's L'Auberge called it quits after Helen Wilson's 2001 death - it's now Stella Blu - and Siggie went to work for David's Bridal.

Now he's back. On Tuesday, Sept. 10, he throws open the doors of Bistro Siggie, a BYOB, at 2960 Skippack Pike in Worcester (610-584-4600).

The room with grand, soaring ceilings, just east of the village of Skippack, is best known as the former home of Fuzion and more recently Gracie's Cafe.

To cook, Wilson hired another veteran - Gerald Dougherty - whose resume includes Bogart's at the Latham Hotel, Founders at the Bellevue, the Moshulu, Sheraton Rittenhouse Square, Jonathan's American Grill, and most recently Little Louie's BBQ.

French-inspired menu is here.

Initial service will be dinner, Tuesday to Saturday. Lunch is on the way, as is Sunday brunch.
