The former Mr. E’s Tavern in Coatesville has new leadership, a new name, and big plans for the future, writes Ed Williams for Main Line Today

Phil Ferro and his fiancée, Kate Hussey, who also successfully revived the Chadds Ford Tavern several years ago, have taken over the eatery and renamed it King Tavern after the nearby Kings Highway, one of the nation’s oldest colonial roads. 

They are offering a chic dining experience in an updated interior that now features lighter color schemes, a redone bar, and lush velvet drapes, along with regal artwork. The two dining rooms have an elegant feel with the help of white tablecloths, fresh flowers, and lit candles. 

Food offerings include a raw bar, handhelds, and huge salads along with classics, such as steak frites, seafood fra diavolo, and chicken Parmesan. There’s also an impressive 40-ounce tomahawk ribeye, as well as a 16-ounce Kurobuta pork chop. Meanwhile, the desserts are housemade.

The new proprietors are planning to further expand the establishment by adding an event space and a larger outdoor dining area, as well as more parking spaces.
