News & Notes

» Change, change, change … The silver lining of this summer’s wave of restaurant casualties is an array of brand-new eateries to sink our teeth into. One is Gemelli (232 Woodbine Ave., Narberth), run by chef/partner Clark Gilbert, formerly of Restaurant Taquet in Wayne. The closing of Margot provided Gilbert, who lives near the restaurant, with the space in which to create a polished yet casual neighborhood spot with an emphasis on comfort and affordability. Gemelli—“twins” in Italian—is both a reference to Gilbert’s two 11-year-olds and a twisted style of dried pasta that reflects the menu’s marriage of Italian and French cuisine. The BYO balances approachable dishes (like tortellini with prosciutto and peas in a tomato-cream sauce) with more ambitious fare (think pappardelle with braised rabbit).

» Lucky No. 3: In honor of its 10th anniversary, 333 Belrose (333belrose.com) is offering a monthlong three-course prix fixe menu for, you guessed it, $33.30.

» Easy to swallow: October is National Celiac Awareness Month, and to make dining out easier for those with the disease, Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant (ironhillbrewery.com) has introduced a menu featuring more than 40 gluten-free items.
