Updates: Estia, Petit Roti, Pop Shop, Mercadito

A few updates on restaurant projects:

Estia Taverna is looking at early August for its location off Lancaster Avenue in Radnor. Like the Estia Taverna in Marlton, this is a more casual version of Center City's Greek destination, Estia.

Chef Olivier Desaintmartin says September for Petit Rôti, his French rotisserie/cafe at 248 S. 11th St., next to his Zinc bistro. Menu is up on the web.

Lots of activity at the forthcoming Senor Salsa, replacing Timber on Old York Road in Abington across from Abington Memorial Hospital - but I'm told "fall' for its opening.

The Pop Shop, the family-friendly Collingswood destination, is moving forward with its plan for a second location. Medford approved its zoning last night to convert the former Farmer & Mechanics Bank, at Bank and Main Streets. It's looking at a November/December opening.

Looking like mid-December for Mercadito, the stylish Mexican out of Chicago from Alfredo Sandoval, at 2116 Chestnut St.
