I had the immense privilege of attending the media event for the re-opening of Earl's New American at Peddler's Village this weekend. As we rarely get away from the kids, we decided to make a night of it.
Peddler's Village has been one of my favorite places since I first went way back when I was around 8 years old (that's 1976 for anyone counting!) and I took my kids when they were young (some of them still are) and they all fell in love, too.
We don't get there as often as we'd like, but I feel that makes each trip that much more special. The Golden Plough is now one of my fiancees places to stay, as well after a birthday stay there a couple years ago.
If you haven't been to Peddler's Village, please DO take a day and go and explore.
As for Earl's, I'll let the photos speak for themselves. It's a truly beautiful restaurant and Chef Bill Murphy is an all around nice guy and so easy to talk to. My fiancee and I were lucky enough to have our tour given by Chef Murphy. If he's out and about during your dinner, make sure to say hello!
The food is perfection and the waitstaff was very accommodating and helpful. You won't be disappointed in any way.
Please check out the media release below!

Ribbon Cutting and Cocktail Reception Launched Exciting Arrival of Earl’s New American
Bucks County community members and local charity, A Woman’s Place, celebrated new restaurant, opening today.
LAHASKA, PA – (April 12, 2016) -- Earl’s New American had plenty cause for celebration this past weekend, April 9 and 10. On Saturday, the Peddler’s Village restaurant hosted a fabulous afternoon social event with a floral ribbon cutting ceremony and cocktail reception for media and members of the Philadelphia and Bucks County food scene. During the reception, Executive Chef Bill Murphy and the ENA culinary staff, along with ENA General Manager Louis A. Torres, Jr., cut the ribbon, which was created from spring flowers provided by The Living Earth, a florist in New Hope.
On Sunday, attendees included the Earl’s New American team, notables from the Bucks County community, as well as honorees from A Woman’s Place (AWP), the county’s only domestic violence organization. The AWP staff invited some of their most generous donors to the special event as a show of appreciation for their support.
Guests enjoyed the restaurant’s polished, casual ‘farmhouse’ feel, mingling and chatting over signature drinks like the Ruby-Tini and the Sparkling Pear with Rosemary. Among the delicious small bites were Lobster Dumpling with Shaved Carrot Slaw and Sweet Soy; Grilled Salmon with Locally Milled Faro and Morel Mushroom Vinaigrette, and Crab Cakes with Old Bay Aioli.
