Looking for a good restaurant to go to this weekend?
Narberth-Bala Cynwyd Patch brought you the details of Thursday. If the tomato pie is good enough for the late, great Harry Kalas, it should be good enough for you. Chef/Owner Tony Altomare didn’t begin in the industry but he’s more than made up for lost time. This go-getter now has 7 locations of his eponymous eatery. Click for the Meet the Chef/Owner.
If that restaurant isn’t to your liking, check out other area restaurants that Patch reviewed this week:

Though only open Thursday-Saturday, this local BBQ joint still manages to pack a punch. Stop in for some juicy BBQ chicken or some tasty ribs—stick with the regular, the short ends cost more and have less flavor. Click for the review.

Stop in for some amazing Szechuan pork buns, firecracker shrimp and impeccable service. Dress up for the occasion and enjoy your dinner in the lovely dining room. Click for the review.
