Beyond Groceries: Pub Grub at Wegmans


When Wegmans opened in the Glen Mills area in November, crowds lined up to check out its expansive stock of food and supplies, plus the casual eat-in and takeout kiosks in the store. But there was another option: The Pub at Wegmans (100 Applied Card Way, off U.S. 202, Concordville, Pa., 484-785-9965), one of only eight full-service restaurants for the grocery-store chain. The 250-seat dining room is a destination, whether you are shopping for groceries or just want a great meal. The Pub’s open kitchen offers an array of choices, from sandwiches to full-scale entrées. We started our meal with appetizers that were generous enough to share: tangy Buffalo shrimp, triangles of chicken quesadilla, and a cheese and charcuterie plate with hot soppressata, Tuscan ham, an 18-month-old Gouda, giardiniera (a vegetable mix) and crispy crostini. Our main dishes were equally as delicious: a grouper sandwich with Cajun seasoning and rémoulade on brioche; a thick, 8-ounce burger with cheddar cheese; and a salmon fillet with horseradish cream sauce, garlicky greens and roasted tomatoes. We finished on a high note with a pretty chocolate dome—a ball of chocolate mousse coated with chocolate ganache—and a luscious apple cheesecake topped with caramel. Afterward, you can always walk off the calories in the seemingly endless grocery aisles.
