Though not on the Main Line, neither Ambler nor Chestnut Hill is a long drive away—and there are good reasons to make a special trip.
If you’ve made a resolution to try new restaurants in 2012, Ambler Restaurant Week may be a great place to start. Running Jan. 16-22, more than 15 restaurants will offer $18-$35 prix-fixe menus. Some of the participating restaurants include Dettera, Cantina Feliz, Saffron and Trax. Visit amblerrestaurantweek.com.
Good news for Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant fans. On Jan. 4, founders Kevin Finn, Kevin Davies and Mark Edelson opened their ninth location at 8400 Germantown Ave. in Chestnut Hill. A wonderful addition to Chestnut Hill’s vibrant dining and shopping scene, Iron Hill is open for lunch and dinner daily and includes all of the favorite seasonal dishes from the brewpub’s other locations—plus, of course, award-winning beer.
