Updated: August 8, 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:

A Light in the Attic
West Reading
Projected Opening: Late 2023

The owners of Barley Mow in West Reading are creating a second space in the top floor of the restaurant’s building. A Light in the Attic will is touted as a “modern speakeasy” and “a New American restaurant focused on serving thoughtfully curated small plates, craft cocktails, beer, and wine.” According to the restaurant’s Facebook page, the opening is targeted before the end of the year.

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 the restaurant has passed its inspection and hosted open interviews in early August so opening appears close.

Farrier’s Tavern
Projected Opening: Unknown

Robesonia will get a new corner bar with the opening Farrier’s Tavern. The new spot takes over the former Falco’s Tavern at 29 West Penn Avenue. Falco’s was sold earlier this year and closed June 23. No opening date or details about the new Farrier’s Tavern have been announced.

Inn on Main
Projected Opening: Unknown

A new restaurant is coming to Main Street in Oley. The Inn on Main will take over the former Oley Valley Inn. Last year, a farm-to-table restaurant, the Riedenau Haus, was announced for the space, but that development fell through late last year. No opening date has been announced for the Inn on Main, though the business is currently hiring.

Mod Pizza
Projected Opening: Unknown

Mod Pizza is opening a second Berks County location at 2715 North Meridian Boulevard in Wyomissing. It will share a building with Honeygrow, which opened earlier this year. Mod Pizza’s first Berks County location opened in Muhlenberg Township in 2020.

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.”

Sinking Spring
Projected Opening: Late 2023

South Heidelberg Township has approved plans for a Popeyes location along Route 422 near the Green Valley Road Intersection. Though construction has yet to begin (as of August 2023), the restaurant could still be open by the end of the year.

Primo Hoagies
Wyomissing Projected Opening: Unknown

Primo Hoagies will open its first Berks County location at the Block at Wyomissing Square. Located on the first floor of the 100 Park apartment building, it will join Cafe Folino and the Vintner’s Table as the three eateries in the location. The New Jersey-based chain has franchises throughout Southeastern Pennsylvania. The nearest Primo Hoagies locations to Berks County currently are in Lancaster, Chester and Lehigh Counties.

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. There have been no updates since May.
