The Lucky Well being prepped for Ambler

Having divested himself of his two Rosey's BBQ shops (in Jenkintown and Ambler), Chad Rosenthal is creating ... another BBQ restaurant.


The menu at the Lucky Well - taking shape in the former Shanachie on Butler Avenue in downtown Ambler - will be based on comfort food prepared from scratch.

But yes, 'cue will be a big part of the deal. As will an enviable selection of whiskies.

Rosenthal says he's importing a smoker from Tennessee and six months in, he expects to have live music.

It's penciled in for a June opening.

Meanwhile nearby, On Tap Philly is about to replace Finn McCool's. Sad story there. Closed after a wall collapsed last year, the joint was preparing to reopen in January when co-owner Joseph Canazaro was killed in a home invasion.
