Jenkintown - Flora and Forcella

JunieB | Feb 5, 201507:23 AM

Evidently I have not been paying attention to my own backyard! Just found out yesterday that Jose Vargas, who is the chef/owner of Leila's Bistro, is hiring a new chef there (Max Hosey - used to cook at Mica) and Vargas will take over cooking at his new place in Glenside - Robert's Block.

Maybe even more importantly I learned that he owns two other restaurants in Jenkintown - Flora (vegetarian), and Forcella (Italian).

Leila's Bistro was the first place we ate when we moved here and we love it. The menu at Flora looks amazing.

I would love to hear from anyone who has eaten at Flora or Forcella. I've been under the weather but hope to get out and try them soon. I don't think Robert's Block has opened yet but should be opening soon.
