Reading and Berks County’s dining scene continues to grow and we are looking forward to trying all of the new restaurants set to open in the coming weeks and months. Here are the restaurants we know are coming soon to Berks County:

Antonio’s Trattoria
Projected Opening: Summer 2023

The former owners of nearby Giovanni’s Pizzeria are bringing a new concept to the Boyertown area when they open Antonio’s Trattoria at the 1636 W. Philadelphia Avenue. The location was most recently Woods Pub & Grill. No opening date has been announced, but renovations are ongoing.

Cafe Folino
Projected Opening: Late Summer 2023

Last year, it was announced that the owners of Folino Estate were bringing their Vintner’s Table restaurant to Wyomissing. In May, it was announced that they would also be bringing a second concept to the Block at Wyomissing Square – Cafe Folino, a coffee shop and cafe serving breakfast and lunch. Cafe Folino is projected to open in late summer, according to the official social media pages.

Henry P. Robeson House
Projected Opening: Summer 2023

It’s still in the early stages, but the owners of the Henry P. Robeson house are hoping to open their new venture in Robesonia this fall. The new bar and restaurant will take over the former Roby House along Penn Avenue. Recent social media posts have shown the restaurant nearing completion.

Play It Back Sports Bar & Grill
Cumru Township
Projected Opening: Winter/Spring 2023

Play It Back Sports Bar & Grill is taking over the former California Bar & Grill along Route 724 near Kenhorst. The latest update from the restaurant came in February with owners noting that “Renovations are ongoing. The extent is much more than was anticipated. This was an old building and balancing the preservation of the main structure and modernizing it to contrast the renovations has been a challenge for the contractors.”

Salsa Burrito
Cumru Township
Projected Opening: June 4

A second location of Salsa Burrito is set to open, tentatively in early June, at the Shillington Plaza shopping center (home of the former Kmart). Google lists the opening date as June 4. This will be in addition to the original location of Salsa Burrito along Penn Street in Reading.

Simran Indian Cuisine
Projected Opening: Unknown

Kutztown is set to get its first Indian restaurant with the expected arrival of Simran Indian Cuisine. The restaurant was first announced in an article in the Allentown Morning Call in February. At the time, there was no business name given, but a business entity called Simran Indian Cuisine LLC was filed on May 3 for the restaurant’s address. The new restaurant will take over the former Spuds at 163 W. Main Street. The original article suggested an April opening, but as of mid-May, there has been no updated opening timeline.

State Hill Craft Cocktails & Kitchen
Projected Opening: June 2, 2023

Replacing the former Tino’s Restaurant on State Hill Road, the aptly named State Hill Craft Cocktails & Kitchen has been undergoing renovations since February. The restaurant has been hosting practice services in anticipation of their official opening on June 2.

Telia Perfect Greek
Projected Opening: Summer 2023

Telia Perfect Greek will take over the former Friendly’s Restaurant in Wyomissing this summer, according to the restaurant’s Facebook page. The only other detail so far is the self-description from the restaurant’s page: “Telia Perfect Greek is reinventing the ethos of Greek Cuisine by sharing with you our passion for food, love and life in an upscale urban modern setting.”

Tosco Pizza
West Lawn
Projected Opening: Unknown

Tosco is set to open a second Berks County location for the family of Italian restaurants. A sign recently was posted outside the former Tavern on Penn in West Lawn. The restaurant has two other locations along the Route 422 corridor – one between Robesonia and Wernersville and the other in Myerstown. No opening information is available at this time.

Vintner’s Table
Projected Opening: Spring 2023

Folino Estate announced in April that it will be opening Vintner’s Table, a wine and tapas bar in Wyomissing. This will be the second location for the concept – the first has been serving Phoenixville since 2019. The new Wyomissing location will occupy space at 100 Park at Wyomissing Square, the same complex that formerly housed ViVA and later Brickstone’s. The entire first floor of the building is being reimagined with construction ongoing and expected well into 2023.
