Restaurant Openings: Landmark Americana Tap & Grill, Ella's American Bistro & More

PLUS: Exton’s Han Dynasty grows even larger with an outpost in Manayunk.

In With the New

The regional Landmark Americana Tap & Grill chain will be taking over the space that most recently housed the Paddock at Devon, which suddenly closed its doors in early January. No word as yet on an opening date. And Ella’s American Bistro in Wayne has added a yummy Sunday brunch to its menu. (Chicken and waffles, anyone?)

Dynasty in the Making

With locations in Philadelphia, Exton and Royersford, Han Dynasty is a frequent stop for those who crave Sichuan cuisine. Now, chef/owner Han Chiang is at it again, taking over the former Beijing Homestyle space at 4358 Main St. in Manayunk.
