West Conshohocken’s Gypsy Saloon recently underwent a makeover that included bringing on a new chef, creating a new menu and updating the decor.
The new chef is Tim Kane, who helped craft the menu to include dishes that vary from more of a “gastro pub” type feel to robust, pasta dishes that are geared towards sharing. Kane has more than 30 years experience in the restaurant industry and most recently worked as the executive chef at the Garrett Hill Ale House in Bryn Mawr. Prior to that he served as the sous chef at the General Warren Inn in Malvern.
Signature new items from Kane include:
Blackened Shrimp or Ahi Tuna Tacos
made with four layers, house marina, Bolognese and ricotta cheese
Homemade Crab Ravioli
with saffron cream sauce, wild mushrooms and leeks
Crazy Truffle Fries
with short rib, truffle oil, bleu cheese sauce, and brown gravy
Gypsy Saloon’s decor has also undergone a makeover. Gypsy Saloon is known for its intimate, eccentric vibe, and owners Marianne Gere and Kim Strengari selected a similar color palate only a few shades richer and with more texture. Walls were also hand-painted with elegant floral stenciling for extra effect and light fixtures replaced with vintage inspired hanging lanterns and blown glass bulbs.
Reservations are available online.
