A new restaurant will be coming to the Wayne location that housed Hogfish Bar and Grill.
It was recently confirmed to me by a Radnor Township official that after a few months of being not open, Hogfish Bar and Grill really is closed — permanently. According to Radnor Patch's article on the restaurant, the goal in opening Hogfish Bar and Grill was to bring the Floridian experience to the Main Line. The owners wanted their guests to enjoy the delicious fish and produce found in Florida. Co-owners Mike Scartozzi and Ed O'Neill (of O'Neill's Auto Body) have both owned and operated businesses along the Main Line for decades. While Scartozzi has over 25 years in the restaurant business (he is the past president of the Pennsylvania Restaurant Association), O'Neill is a relative newcomer to the hospitality industry. The restaurant …

A look at the demise of a supermarket superstar.
There one stands here in Radnor Township — a store that anchors the back end of St. Davids Square shopping center. The Genuardi's supermarket chain was once a bustling, top-of-its-class supermarket that offered superior customer service and even more superior grocery selections. It was the Wegmans of its day; a precursor to Whole Foods. When the family-owned chain sold out to Safeway in 2001, its customer service, premier selections and history went with it. Now, a decade later, Safeway is giving up 16 of its Genuardi's chains to Giant. It is also selling off another eight Genuardi's to prospective buyers and shuttering the remaining three. The Philadelphia Inquirer takes a historical look at the rise and fall of one of our area's most …
