A Cyprus inspired restaurant is opening in Bucks County sometime after Thanksgiving, but, before Christmas, one of the owners, Mike Christou, told The Philadelphia Inquirer. The other owner is Mike's brother, Antoni.

The name of the new restaurant is Ardana, and it will be on Route 611 in the Shops at Valley Square. The Christou brothers already own the KC Prime Steakhouse in Warrington, which is only five minutes away from their new restaurant.

Ardana is named after and in tribute to the village in Cyprus where the owner's grandmother grew up. I love that. It will be an "upscale casual" place, and serve small plates from the Mediterranean menu, like wood-fired pizza, and pasta. Chef Nic Servis' will be in charge in the kitchen.

It sounds like a type of restaurant that you've never been to before with fresh greenery throughout, and a huge, real, lemon tree smack dab in the middle of the dining room (now I'm going to have to go check it out).

If you're wondering exactly where Ardana will be, it's taking over the space where the Melting Pot was. It's also where newcomer, The Lucky Well, is.

When I find out the Grand Opening info, I'll let you know.
