Margot BYOB to Open on Saturday, January 6th

Posted on Thursday, January 4, 2007




The former Carmine’s space on the Main Line in Narberth is being transformed into Margot, an upscale, moderately priced BYOB opening this Saturday, January 6th, 2007.

The fare will be modern-American and the atmosphere intimate and candle-lit, yet the flavors promise bold innovation. The renovated side entrance will offer a convenient take-out/pick-up option; reservations now accepted.

The driving force behind Margot is Margot McGinley, a native Philadelphian who for the last ten years worked in finance on Wall Street and in Philadelphia, yet whose true passion has always been all things food and cooking. Opening Margot is the realization of her dream to invite the public to enjoy her signature dishes in a relaxed and warm atmosphere. The inventive menu is Margot’s brainchild. John Mims, owner/chef of Carmine’s Creole Café, will continue to be involved as a minority partner.
