Ar­peg­gio in Spring House re­opens

Springfield Sun - - NEWS -

LOWER GWYNEDD » Restau­ra­teurs Mary Cul­lom and Chef Hamdy Khalil tem­po­rar­ily closed the doors of their Ar­peg­gio BYOB in Spring House on May 6, as they were forced to va­cate their build­ing be­fore it was de­mol­ished in prepa­ra­tion for their move across the park­ing lot to their new larger space. That gor­geous new space has now re­opened in the Spring House Square Shop­ping Cen­ter (at the cor­ner of Beth­le­hem and Sum­ney­town pikes), and the restau­rant is cur­rently run­ning nor­mal lunch and din­ner ser­vice.

The new lo­ca­tion is roughly 75 yards across the park­ing lot, and the new space — which has been de­signed by revered Philadel­phia ar­chi­tec­tural and de­sign firm DAS Ar­chi­tects — is a mas­sive 4,550 square feet in­side with 24foot high ceil­ings, an up­grade from the pre­vi­ous 2,800 square feet. It fea­tures two in­te­rior rooms with 120 seats com­bined — in­clud­ing an 80-seat main din­ing room — and a space that can be made pri­vate for up to 40 guests, in ad­di­tion to 120 park­ing spa­ces. In ad­di­tion to spacious in­te­rior up­grade, the new space in­cludes a cov­ered 1,100 square foot deck with 50 seats over­look­ing beau­ti­fully landscaped ponds and large glass fold­ing doors, which blend the in­side with the al­fresco din­ing space. The restau­rant also in­cludes 118 wine lock­ers, and a beau­ti­ful two-sided fireplace, which di­vides the two din­ing rooms.

“There were so many me­mories cre­ated in our for­mer space,” said Cul­lom. “We’ve been op­er­at­ing the restau­rant for 21 in­cred­i­ble years, and it was bit­ter­sweet to see it de­mol­ished, but at the same time we’re so ex­cited to have moved into a gor­geous space with a state-of-the-art kitchen and two in­cred­i­ble new Ital­ian wood-fired ovens. The new space is so beau­ti­ful in­side and out, and the ar­chi­tec­tural and de­sign firm who worked on it ac­tu­ally sur­passed our ex­pec­ta­tions. We are so happy to be open and serv­ing the neigh­bor­hood again. We wanted to build some­thing spe­cial for our loyal guests, and now we couldn’t be more ex­cited than to share this restau­rant and new space with them.”

Ar­peg­gio BYOB, lo­cated at 909 Sum­ney­town Pike in the Spring House Vil­lage Cen­ter, is open seven days a week for lunch and din­ner. Ac­com­mo­da­tions for ta­bles of 6 to 12 guests should be made in ad­vance by call­ing 215-646-5055. For more in­for­ma­tion, visit http://arpeg­giobyob.com. Sub­mit­ted to Dig­i­tal First Me­dia
