Bernie’s, a pub that grew out of Oreland in 2011, moved to Glenside in late 2015, and then spun off a Hatboro sibling (where La Fontana was), is setting up two more locations for this fall.
It’s taking the shuttered Doc Magrogan’s Oyster House at 3432 Sansom St. in University City, which the Penn community surely remembers best as La Terrasse. Bernie’s owner Eric Kretschman is an alum of Drexel as well as Penn’s Fels Institute.
The second location is at 4411 Main St. in Manayunk, the former longtime home of Derek’s and Sonoma.
Format is expected to be the same as Glenside and Hatboro: large bar, multiple beer lines, many TVs, pub menu.
