Following the successful opening of its first Pennsylvania restaurant in Glen Mills in June 2014, Not Your Average Joe’s is set to debut their Ardmore location on Monday, Feb. 23. The Suburban Square locale will feature the New England-based chain’s first two-story dining room and accommodate up to 200 diners.
The Not Your Average Joe’s team has converted the former 5,000-square-foot Suburban Square cinema built in the 1930s. The restaurant will boast three bar areas and a mezzanine level with a roof deck for outside dining. The interior will be elegantly casual with an industrial-chic aesthetic, including many reclaimed materials and artisan-made furnishings.
“We think Not Your Average Joe’s and Ardmore, particularly Suburban Square, make a great match,” said CEO Steve Silverstein. “Proximity to Philadelphia—one of the greatest food towns in America—means area residents are very discerning about their dining options. We’re confident that they’ll really appreciate our innovative, chef-driven menu and bend-over-backwards service at affordable prices.”
An evolution of the restaurant’s core menu, Ardmore’s menu items will range from comfort fare, such as the N.Y. strip steak with horseradish butter and Uncle Joe’s bolognese with fresh pappardelle, to locally crafted dishes, such as Di Bruno Bros. burrata bruschetta. Because each dish is made to order, guests are encouraged to request customization to meet dietary restrictions or taste preferences.
In addition to an extensive food menu, Not Your Average Joe’s offers an award-winning wine list and a broad spectrum of regional, national and imported beers. With 40 bottles of wine, 21 of which are served by the glass, and 20 beers on tap, guests can find the perfect pairing to any meal.
“The addition of Not Your Average Joe’s to Suburban Square will be a great new dining amenity for our customers,” said Suburban Square General Manager Mark Curran. “Our shoppers range from students to professionals to families with small children. With wide menu options, great wine and beer selections and affordable pricing, Not Your Average Joe’s is a fantastic dining option for all of our customers.”
To commemorate the Ardmore opening, Not Your Average Joe’s will be donating all proceeds raised during the Grand Opening celebrations to the Cathy Miller Cancer Fund (CMCF), a local non-profit organization dedicated to raising awareness and funds for cancer research. Additionally, Not Your Average Joe’s Ardmore selected CMCF as its “Not Your Average Cause” for the months of February and March, where each Tuesday the restaurant will donate 15 percent of purchases to CMCF.
