Arpeggio in Spring House reopens
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
