YARDLEY BOROUGH >> The public is invited to celebrate the reopening of Canal Street Grille with the return of its original owners, Charlene and John Argyris, on Saturday, June 9 with a ribbon cutting at 4:30 p.m. and live music with Greg Diteodoro on guitar from 5-8 p.m. as part of Yardley’s 2nd Saturday event.
The restaurant has been a Yardley staple for some 20 years and now has now been renovated and redecorated by the Argyris family in their second round of owning the business.
“It was not easy to walk away from something that you created and put your heart and soul in for 14 years,” noted co-owner Charlene Argyris. “We made so many wonderful relationships with our customers and the community. When the opportunity arose to come back to the business we grabbed it and have since been busy improving upon our customers’ experience by focusing on quality ingredients and attention to detail.”
Charlene and John have invested a significant amount back into the restaurant to synchronize its aesthetics with the meals they serve for an enhanced customer experience. “We felt the atmosphere was long overdue for a ‘fresher and brighter’ approach that reflects the Mediterranean cuisine that we offer on our menu,” said John. “We love Yardley - it has been our home for almost 40 years, and we wanted Canal Street Grille to reflect the authentic pride we have for our community and the food we create and share every day.”
“With the Argyris family’s committed ownership and reinvestment, outdoor seating overlooking the historic and scenic Delaware Canal and its location right in the heart of vibrant Yardley Borough, Canal Street Grille is poised to enhance its role as a dining destination,” remarked Jef Buehler, President of Experience Yardley. “They serve as a key part of our downtown’s restaurant niche.”
Yardley Borough Councilman David Bria added that Canal Street Grille “is a true local business that serves residents and draws people to the Borough from all over the region. We are very happy to have them here in Yardley!”
The ribbon cutting is open to the public and afterwards attendees will be able to go inside to get a peek at the renovations and changes with the owners. See http://www.canalstreetyardley.com for menus, hours, and general information.
