A popular Upper Main Line restaurant will soon have locations just east.. and west of Tredyffrin and Easttown.
Christopher’s A Neighborhood Place will open a second location next year in Malvern.
The family-friendly restaurant will occupy about 4,300 square feet of Eastside Flats, a new residential and retail project being built on King Street.
The 100-seat restaurant and bar will have the same menu and same décor at the Wayne location, owner Chris Todd told Radnor Patch on Wednesday after signing the lease. He hopes to open in April.
Todd said he has been looking at spots for a second location for about three or four years. What drew him to the new Malvern development was the addition of a Kimberton Whole Foods planned for the space that “has nice draw to bring people to town.”
“Having 190 apartments above you helps, but most importantly Malvern is a very well-run business town and it has a community that fits my concept’s needs — it’s surrounded by families,” he said.
The Wayne location will still see Todd around, he said. “I have a great staff,” and despite having two locations, “We shouldn’t miss a beat.”
