Winberie's, on Valley Forge Road near Chesterbrook in Wayne, has a top-to-bottom redo at the hands of corporate master Select Restaurants Inc,
It's now Black Powder Tavern, making a nod to the building's history. Legend has it that Friedrich Von Steuben designated the tavern as a secret black powder munitions stash for Continental army couriers during the winter of 1777-78.
Menu covers small plates, soups, salads, pastas, burgers, sandwiches, large plates and dessert; a few sample dishes include Cheesy Devils on Horseback (dates stuffed with gorgonzola and wrapped in applewood smoked bacon); pastrami-smoked salmon Reuben; Victory Beer-battered fish and chips; and Cajun mac and cheese.
Lunch starts Oct. 22.
Twenty-one beers are on draft, 21 bottles.
Eastman Design set out to make the building look more like a tavern and less like a bistro with a framed copy of the Declaration of Independence and Revolutionary portraits and scenes from nearby Valley Forge. There's a new, resawn oak bar, and resawn oak is used for the flooring and table tops.
