Longtime chef Lee Krasley is returning to Chester Springs with his new Epicurean Garage, an all-day dining venture expected to open this summer, writes Ken Alan for Main Line Today.
Krasley opened his first restaurant, The Epicurean, 32 years ago but underwent a heart transplant two years ago. He had great success with several restaurants in Chester County, including the America Bar & Grill in Chester Springs, but due to his medical condition was forced to close all his establishments.
Now completely recovered, he is ready for new culinary adventures.
“I still love cooking. I love the whole multi-sensory thing. I’m ready to roll,” he said.
His latest endeavor will be a 150-seat, casual, and family-friendly space in Eagle Pointe Village Shopping Center. The restaurant will offer daily breakfasts, weekend a la carte brunch, and an all-day lunch and dinner menu featuring farm-to-table dishes.
To stay local, Krasley will source cheeses from Birchrun Hills Farm and Honey Brook’s September Farms, mushrooms from Kennett Square, and grass-fed beef from Lancaster County.
“I call the Garage a ‘gastro-diner,’ a place supporting the local community and the local agriculture, while offering the area’s best beers,” said Krasley.
