Tiffin to Wynnewood & Bryn Mawr

Tuesday, September 22nd, 2009 recently reported two possible Tiffin locations coming to the Main Line in the near future. A lease has been signed for a space in the Wynnewood Shopping Center (projected December opening). Owner Munish Narula also says he has a verbal agreement for an undisclosed space in Bryn Mawr (Blush perhaps?)

The original Tiffin in Northern Liberties has been featured in the PhillyMag Top 50 restaurants for the past two years (#30 in ’08, #50 in ’09).

UPDATE (8/11/10): Tiffin Bryn Mawr to open 8/16/10.

Venice Pizza & Pasta replaces Malvern Saxby’s

Thursday, September 10th, 2009

The Saxby’s on Rt 30 in Malvern has been replaced by Venice Pizza & Pasta, a traditional Italian joint. Plenty of different pizzas, pasta dishes and hot & cold sandwiches area available. Though we haven’t had the pizza, it looks like very good Italian-style thin crust.

Because the building is rather large, there is plenty of seating available, so BYOB is allowed and Free Wi-Fi is offered. No Delivery.

Pig Daddy’s BBQ, Drexel Hill

I was close enough to Drexel Hill recently to make a slight barbecue detour and visit Pig Daddy’s, the winners of Philadelphia Magazine’s “Best of Philly” Barbecue in 2008. (more…)

Your Picks for Best Burger

Thursday, September 3rd, 2009

Burgers are the hot trend of the moment, at least in this area. This summer, approximately 347 burger joints have opened in the Delaware Valley alone – from chains like Elevation Burger to indie joints like Downingtown’s Doghouse. Despite their trendiness, however, burgers are no tapas – they always have been a part of our lives and always will be. Still, we at MLD not afraid to jump on a good trend when we see one.

When riding home after experiencing Butcher & Singer’s “Best of Philly” $6 burger special (which was very good but unlikely the actual best in Philly), we got thinking about where one would find the best burger on the Main Line. Magazine Main Line Today recently crowned TJ’s in Paoli the winner, which, out of the ones we’ve tried, is a solid choice. But what of the ones we haven’t tried? Surely there are some other contenders out there.

So… To the point: we’re on a mission to find the Main Line’s very best burger, and we need your help. If you have a favorite burger, post a comment below with where to get it and why it is so great. This fall, we’ll try to eat as many as we can (prioritizing the most compelling descriptions below) and pick our winners at the end of the year.

Oh, and one more thing: No chains. We just can’t be bothered with that.
