The ever-shifting array of the Montgomery County dining scene will see some new arrivals over the next handful of months, as reported by Michael Klein in The Philadelphia Inquirer.

In the Jewish deli category, for example, Montgomeryville is getting its own edition of The Kibitz Room. A long-established Cherry Hill favorite, The Kibitz Room in Montco will be twice the size of its Garden State counterpart.

A scheduled ribbon-cutting of The Kibitz Room is envisioned for about a year from now, when construction is complete on Route 309 near Stump Road, behind a new Wawa.

The menu is traditional: matzo ball soup, corned beef and pastrami, desserts like coconut cake.

One Yelp reviewer from Virginia was particularly taken by the pickle bar. “[I] wished I ate more of the sweet pickles,” she wrote.

In King of Prussia, the new culinary entrant is Gaucho’s Prime, a Brazilian steakhouse. It’s on track to open June 1 in the site of the former Ruth’s Chris.

The Yelp sentiments here reflect the chain’s Northville, Michigan, operation; however, the praise of commenters covered brand staples that include filet, lamb, and pork.

But apparently, one particular dessert stands out. “The fried banana is mesmerizing,” an Ohio diner reported.

The full list of changes to the Montgomery County dining scene is at The Philadelphia Inquirer.


Where did the Jewish deli tradition and reputation come from?
