Pennsylvania Suburbs Restaurant Openings
- Vietnamese hoagie lovers have a new destination in chef Chad Rosenthal’s Banh Street. The Abington storefront takes a whimsical approach with the The Auto Bánh (Kobe beef hot dog), The Bánh Appetit (lemongrass seared tofu) and The Bánh Jovi (any protein served over an iceberg wedge). 1062 Tyson Avenue, Abington, (267) 626-2698, banhstreet.com
- The concept is simple: Build your own pizza with no extra cost for toppings, be they veal meatballs, gorgonzola or balsamic syrup. With that winning formula, Snap plans to build on its two area locations (Ardmore and Exton) with one in Rosemont and 15 more to follow. 4 Station Road, Ardmore, (610) 896-4488; 291 Main Street, Exton, (484) 875-5800; 1125 Lancaster Avenue, Rosemont, snapcustompizza.com
- Having built a legion of followers with its brick-oven pizza in Doylestown, Spuntino brings its pie game to Philly. Simple fresh combos (pancetta, cherry tomato and capers; tuna, tomatoes, onions and basil) are winning over new palates. 701 N. 2nd Street, (267) 930-8486, spuntinophilly.com; 22 S. Main Street, Doylestown, (215) 340-7660, spuntinoofdoylestown.com
