During a January 19th meeting, Conshohocken’s Borough Council unanimously approved the transfer of a liquor license into the borough for a new restaurant at 16 East 1st Avenue. This space was most recently home to The Lucky Dog Gastropub.
The new restaurant will be named Daniel’s. Initially, there was a sign on a window that stated that it would be called 1st Avenue Tap & Grille.
The owners of Daniel’s are Dan and Debbie Brodeur. The couple most recently worked for Anthony Caterers. Dan Brodeur was also the owner-operator and executive chef of Brodeur’s on State Street in Media. According to a biography we found online, the restaurant received the Best New Restaurant Award and the Best Alfresco Dining Awards by Mainline Magazine. Brodeur’s on State Street closed in 2009.
During the hearing on the transfer, the Brodeurs offered some details on the restaurant. The plan is for an “upscale atmosphere” with an expansive menu. Initially, the restaurant will be open Wednesday through Sunday from 3:00/4:00 p.m. to midnight. As things move forward the restaurant will be open for lunch and Sunday brunch.
The couple had shared that they had looked all over Montgomery County for a place to open a restaurant and chose Conshohocken because the location and growth in the community excited them.
