Restaurant Cerise: Bring the Kids to This European-Inspired BYOB in Bryn Mawr
August 23, 2016 | klein
Chef Ben and his wife, Elena Thomas, loved the open air markets of Europe so much that they brought the vibe back to Bryn Mawr with Restaurant Cerise. The French word for “cherry,” Cerise serves a seasonal four-course dinner that is ripe with contemporary European influence and includes salads and appetizers, house-made pastas, a meat or vegetable entree, and dessert. Past menu items have included hanger steak and herb frites, gnocchi with mussels, and a dark chocolate torte with cherry vanilla ice cream.
If you’re looking for a specific spirit to pair with your courses, bring it on your own. The BYOB’s location near a Wine and Spirits shop makes it easy to find something to enjoy. The elegant menu and BYOB concept may have parents calling the babysitter, but rest easy: Restaurant Cerise is kid friendly. The restaurant even features a children’s three-course menu with such elegant dishes as lamb loin chop, cheese croquettes, and sweet fry dough with Nutella!
