Updated: January 9, 2023

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: Early 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.

Craft 2700 at Freymoyer’s
Muhlenberg Township
Projected Opening: January 2023

The former Freymoyer’s Hotel in Muhlenberg Township will soon have new life when Craft 2700 at Freymoyer’s opens. The new restaurant will specialize in craft beer and sprits along with sandwiches and entrees. The latest from the restaurant owner is that issues regarding the liquor license have been the cause of delays as otherwise the restaurant is ready to open after passing its opening inspection on November 28. The latest from the restaurant projects a January 2023 opening.

Henry P. Robeson House
Projected Opening: Winter/Spring 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. In a Facebook post dated August 22, the owners announced that they have taken settlement of the building and that renovations were underway. Construction is ongoing and will carry into the new year.

Projected Opening: Early 2023

Lio Colon’s Food Bus, a retired school bus turned food truck which began making stops in Berks County and beyond in 2022, is getting a brick-and-and mortar location. The announcement was made in December. No official location has been announced, but the photo accompanying the news indicates it will be the former Pulse Cafe in Bernville (which moved to a new location in Reading in the fall). No official opening date has been announced.

West Reading
Projected Opening: January 17

Noodl, a new ramen restaurant will be arriving in West Reading sometime in 2022. The restaurant will open in a brand new building that was erected adjacent to Farmhouse Kitchen. The restaurant is scheduled to open on January 17.

Editor’s Note: We mistakenly reported previously that Noodl was part of the same restaurant group as Say Cheese and the Nitro Bar.

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. Recent videos on the restaurant’s Instagram page show significant construction is ongoing with no updated timeline for opening.

Redvo Restaurant
Projected Opening: Unknown

The owners of the former Penn Steak & Fries in Pottstown are bringing new life to the former Oley Turnpike Dairy with Redvo Restaurant. Penn Steak & Fries closed inside the Coventry Mall in late December so the team can concentrate on opening Redvo. No timeline or opening has been announced yet.

Restaurant 400
Projected Opening: Unknown

A new restaurant may be coming to the former Friendly’s on Park Road in Wyomissing. Two new businesses, 400 N Park Road LLC and Restaurant 400, have been registered to the same address as the Zeppos Restaurant Group, owners of the Hitching Post and Willoughby’s on Park across the street. While there has been no official announcement about plans for this location, renovations are ongoing to the interior and exterior.

Riedenau House
Projected Opening: N/A

Originally slated for the Oley Valley Inn, the Riedenau House is a concept from chef Dale Reitenauer that will focus on 100% farm-to-table food using PA Preferred products. In an announcement on Facebook on December 8, Reitenauer announced that he was not renewing the lease of the Inn due to ongoing issues, citing the issues as a contributor to the restaurant not being ready to open after a year of work. However, Reitenauer ended the post by saying, “As our investors have stated, if it’s not happening here it will happen elsewhere,” indicating that they will seek a new location for the project.

Saoko Bar & Lounge
Projected Opening: Unknown

A new bar is opening along Route 422 in western Berks County. Saoko Bar & Lounge passed its opening food inspection in late November and will soon be opening at 4045 Conrad Weiser Parkway. The location is attached to a highway motel and has been home to several bars over the years.

Takkii Ramen
Projected Opening: January 2023

Takkii Ramen is coming to Kutztown. The Lehigh Valley-based chain of restaurants opened a location in West Reading earlier in 2022. The Kutztown location was originally slated for a December opening, but the latest update was a “now hiring” notice on December 13. It is supposed to be nearly ready and should open soon after the new year. The location at 164 W. Main Street was most recently home to Petra’s Empanadas.

Takkii Ramen
Projected Opening: Spring 2023

A third Takkii Ramen location – behind West Reading and Kutztown – is scheduled to open this spring in the Plaza 222 shopping center along the 5th Street Highway in Muhlenberg Township. A WFMZ report in November cited a winter/spring opening timeframe for the Japanese restaurant.

Winnie Tea Bar
West Reading
Projected Opening: Spring 2023

A new spot is set to open this spring in West Reading – Winnie Tea Bar will offer boba tea, fruit tea, coffee and dessert at their location at 725 Penn Avenue. The latest from the business’ Facebook page projects a spring 2023 opening.

Sign reading "The Block Wyomissing Square - Coming Soon: Vintner's Table & Sola Salons)

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.
