Dave Magrogan, who came up with the Irish bar Kildare's and started building restaurant brands from there, seems to be keenest nowadays on his Harvest Seasonal Grill & Wine Bar, whose concept is farm-to-table with most dishes under 500 calories.
Next spring, the sixth will come on line, and it's headed for the Main Line. A seventh is on the way in summer 2016 for the Villages at Newtown, near a McCaffrey's supermarket in Bucks County.
The spring opening will be at 555 E. Lancaster Ave in Radnor, in the former Susanna Foo space next to the far more indulgent Fleming's Prime steakhouse. This location will feature 200 seats in the dining room, 50 seats in a new bar, a 60-seat private dining room, and 100 seats on three patios, one of which is a 25-seat private space.
Other Harvest locations are in University City, Glen Mills, North Wales, Harrisburg, and Moorestown. Besides Harvest and Kildare's, Magrogan owns Doc Magrogan's Oyster House, Red Star Craft House, and Barra Rosa.
Susanna Foo and her son, Gabe, meanwhile, are looking at late November/early December for their return to Center City. SuGa, their Chinese restaurant, is under construction at 1720 Sansom St. in Rittenhouse.
