Most "Chowish" Philly Burb: Doylestown?

JCap | Jul 4, 2008 05:35 AM

I've lived in the Doylestown area for a couple of years now, and have complained about the dining options on a few posts. But a couple of new restaurants are coming to Doylestown, and I kind of re-evaluated things. A few of Doylestown's offerings:
Excellent sushi, modern atmosphere: Ooka
Modern restaurant, eclectic menu (think tea smoked sticky bbq ribs with ginger ice cream): Honey
French bistro/brasserie: Slate Bleu
Beer Bar (over 80) with great wings: Mesquito Grill
Absolutely Top Notch Burger (the frenchie- boursin and onion jam): Farmhouse Tavern
Great bakery: Cross Roads
Specialty takeout with excellent cheese and pate: Cote and Co.
Good Thai- place on State St. (I think it's called Black Walnut Cafe?)
Eclectic pizza (i.e. rosemary, gorgonzola, rosemary, and fig jam) - Jules

A couple new additions, that if they're good will add alot:
Sweet Lil's- bbq
Rare- steakhouse

A few places that are great ideas, but don't quite hit the mark:
Wine Bar- Pag's
Wood fired pizza- Cafe Alessio

We've got a gaping hole in italian restaurants (although Craig Laban really like Il Melagrano), but all in all, for a suburb, that's pretty darn good eats.

Which suburb do you think deserves the "Chow Crown?"
