The General is opening on Thursday, August 3rd at 5:00 p.m. in Lafayette Hill. The General replaces the Barren Hill Tavern & Brewery, which itself replaced the General Lafayette Inn. The previous two restaurants operated a brewery as well. The General is not going to be a brewery and the brewing equipment now makes its home at a new brewery in Lansdale.
The owners are Bob Devine and Nick Ciaffone, who already have found success in the three From the Boot locations, including the original spot just down the street from The General in Lafayette Hill.
On it’s Facebook page, The General is promising a “#culinaryrevolution.” The menu is American, complimented by a sushi bar. In the kitchen, you will find Executive Chef Michael DeLone. DeLone was most recently at Bistro Romano and prior to that Le Castagne.
The General’s website is still a landing page and a menu hasn’t been published anywhere we could fine. It’s Facebook page is active and below are some photos of its dishes.
