WAYNE, Pa. (CBS) – Carmel Café and Wine Bar has opened a new location on the Main Line.

“It is modern Mediterranean,” says owner Doff Fleshman (top photo), “so we’re taking a modern approach to some Mediterranean classics.  We have some outstanding dishes and they’re very unique to Carmel.  For example, we have a chick pea fry.”

(Kuznits:)  “Like a falafel french fry?”
(Fleshman:)  “Correct.  It’s got a great outside texture.  It’s a little soft in the center.  That is served with a curry aioli sauce and also a tomato jam.”

And it has opened just in time for Main Line Restaurant Week, which starts next Monday.

As mentioned above, the seventh season of Main Line Restaurant Week takes place Monday, September 23rd, through Sunday, September 29th.

Sarah Lockard, CEO and publisher of aroundmainline.com is the organizer and founder of Main Line Restaurant Week.

“We have over two dozen restaurants participating all across the western suburbs,” she notes, adding, “I get excited when I get those menus because it really shows people those seasonal (elements) — you know, pumpkins and gourds and Halloween, and all that fun stuff!”

Meanwhile, Satsuma Asian Kitchen and Bar has opened in Wilmington, Del.

“The sushi’s gonna be very different,” says chef-owner Michael DiBianca.  “We’re looking to do more of a ceviche style of sushi, and then we’re gonna do some old-style pressed sushi as well.  It’s where they do it in a bamboo box, and it’s actually pressed into a block.  It’s kind of an old technique that’s becoming more popular.”
