New chef moving upscale at Avero in Devon (Main Line Media News)

February 19th, 2014 Posted by Uncategorized No Comment yet

Scott Morrison is an effusive, personable Bruce Willis look-alike as well as the most ubiquitous Main Line restaurateur. If you have dined in a fine Main Line restaurant in the past decade, there is a decent chance that Morrison was one of the owners. You might say he can put his finger directly on the pulse of our desires in food.

Morrison has been a sole or part-owner at quite a few restaurants that are now history such as Maia in Villanova, Basil in Paoli and Pond and Floret in Radnor. He was once a partner in the still-thriving Tango in the Bryn Mawr Train Station and is still a partner in the mega-successful Nectar in Berwyn, and is also part-owner of two restaurants in Wilmington, Ernest & Scott and Chelsea Tavern.

The leading contender of chilly weather dinner is the classic pot pie. Wrapped in a buttery, flaky shell, and pumped with savory sauce, generous chicken and chunky vegetables, each forkful is pure pie bliss, and what could make it even better? Not making it yourself, of course.

Villanova’s Ithan Market has become our go-to staple for fresh, to-go pot pies, with like-minded customers walking in daily to snag their share of the old-world comfort food. Due to its mouthwatering popularly, nearly 4,000 pounds of pot pie are crafted each year. It’s a no-brainer then that a leading, local grocery store chain caught wind of owners Marion and James Green’s decadent creations and requested their share.
