On Sunday, Wegmans opened its newest store in Collegeville, Montgomery County.
While a new Wegmans is always good news, this opening is also noteworthy because it is the first Wegmans to have a full service restaurant and bar located inside the store.
Called The Pub (below), the restaurant is located in the store's Market Cafe area. It's modeled on a traditional Irish pub and serves wine, beer and liquor. It also has an open kitchen and customers are encouraged to observe and even ask questions of their chefs as the chefs prepare their meals.
They've got a few locals on draft (Yards and Victory). The food menu has calorie counts for each item.
Both food and drink rices are extremely reasonable. Downright recession friendly. And they ask customers not to tip — Wegmans covers it.
Wegmans is also planning on opening a second The Pub restaurant when they open their Wegmans Malvern location in summer 2010.
