Another Center City restaurant headed to Main Line

This time it's Pietro's, the coal-oven pizzeria, and its Greek sibling, Estia.

Another Center City restaurant headed to Main Line

Center City restaurateurs Michael Solomonov and Steve Cook opened a venture, Citron & Rose, last year in Merion Station. So did Michael Schulson and Rob Wasserman, when they opened The Saint James in Ardmore.

Now I'll tell you about a third Center City operation joining the fray in Radnor Township.

Nick Pashalis, who co-owns the luxe Estia and the casual Pietro's Coal-Oven Pizzeria, said he is going into a new space at 200 Radnor-Chester Rd.

This project is at least a year out, Pashalis said, and would include a Pietro's and a new, more casual Estia offshoot called Estia Taverna.

More immediately, Pashalis said, in six months, the Pietro's in Marlton will become an Estia Taverna.
