Main Line Today put out its list of 20 Best New Restaurants this month and two restaurants, one in Conshohocken and another with local ties, made the list.
First up is the Pieri Resstaurant Group’s Cerdo, which opened in late 2016. Its Wild Boar Burger made the cover (pictured above). Here is what Main Line Today had to say about it:
Young restaurateur Brian Pieri showcases Spain’s porcine bounty with house-cured meats, a terrific wild-boar burger, an impressive Iberico pork loin, and rustic Mediterranean fish and seafood dishes. Ignore your gut and try the sardines with raisins and pine nut salsa, all slathered onto a crusty baguette. It’s far better than its sounds. Cerdo also offers a thoughtful selection of draft wines, including a light Spanish rosé and a jammy Tempranillo. This spring, grab a glass of Cava and dine alfresco on the patio. The feel is more Catalonia than Conshy.
Up next was Cedar Craft & Kitchen in Glenolden, which is owned by Pepperoncini’s Paul DiBona. Main Line Today writes:
Paul DiBona (Conshohocken’s Pepperoncini) deftly pairs comfort food and craft cocktails at this friendly spot. Chef Brian Morris’ biggest sellers include tangy St. Louis-style pork ribs, cheddary ham-stuffed risotto bites, a deeply satisfying meatloaf and a fragrant Italian roast pork sandwich. The bar features 11 beers on tap, a simple, well-curated wine list and the signature Jim Beam-laced Muddy Waters cocktail.
