September 14 is the official opening date of the brand new Whole Foods Market coming to the Main Line at 15 East Wynnewood Road. And like many of Whole Foods new-and-improved stores before it, Wynnewood's will also include a juice and coffee bar (open early), wood-fired pizzas, and ramen. This one also gets a full-service restaurant called Table and Tavern.
The pub-style restaurant, complete with a full-bar serving cocktails, beer and wine, will be the Market's side-operation, using its own produce, meats, and seafood to provide Main Liners with a place to get lunch or dinner while out shopping for groceries. When the store opens in September, chef Alan Morgan and his Mid-Atlantic culinary team, will launch Table and Tavern with a fall menu of items like brown-buttered sunchokes, braised octopus, and duck leg confit. There will be brunch on weekends, too.
A month later, on October 14, Rodin Square's Whole Foods will open at 2101 Pennsylvania Ave, directly behind the Rodin Museum.
If the local vendor-heavy food hall inside the Williamsburg Whole Foods is any indication of a certain direction that the company's going in, it'll be interesting to see how things pan out for this one, opening just off the Ben Franklin Parkway.
