Souderton Borough has approved the lease for a new restaurant in the newly renovated train station building run by a partnership between Harleysville’s Butcher and Barkeep restaurant and Lansdale’s craft distiller Boardroom Spirits, writes Bob Keeler for Souderton Independent.
The restaurant will be managed by FASE Restaurants, owner of Butcher and Barkeep, while Boardroom Spirits will provide the liquor including craft beers and wines.
The borough has invested $1.5 million financed by state and federal grants to renovate the station and its accompanying buildings. Now it is subleasing the space to businesses, subject to SEPTA’s approval.
The letter of intent for the lease was approved by FASE and the borough in November, conditional on it receiving an economic development liquor license. While that license was denied by the Liquor Board in May, Borough Manager, Mike Coll, said the restaurant is still planning to open with a craft liquor license.
“I don’t have a timeline as we speak today as far as when we can expect a grand opening, but we are shooting for some point this fall,” said Coll.
