The Mushroom Capital of the World is serving up much more culinary fun than its platter of world-renowned fungi.

With three attractive new restaurants, Kennett Square’s culinary scene is mushrooming into a destination of its own.

The latest buzz is revolving around the second season of the popular beer garden The Creamery, the return of Talula’s Table chef Bryan Sikora with his new Hearth Kitchen, Half Moon successor Grain Craft Bar+Kitchen, and the coming debut of the TreeTops Kitty Café, according to a report in the Wilmington News Journal by Patricia Talorico.

“Kennett is a very happening place,” said Sikora’s new wife, Andrea.

The couple’s debut of Hearth Kitchen brings them from Wilmington closer to home in Downingtown. Hearth features Italian cuisine in an urban industrial setting with room for 80 diners inside and 24 outside — the space used to be Manny Hattan’s and Bite of Italy.

Also attracted to Kennett Square’s lively environment were Grain Craft Bar+Kitchen owners Lee Mikles and Jim O’Donoghue.

“It is a really cool neighborhood,” Mikles said. “A lot of our regulars in Newark lived in the area. Kennett has a very cool vibe.”
