In her report to Kennett Square Borough Council on Feb. 5, Mary Hutchins said that Aimee Olexy, the owner of the enormously popular Talula’s Table, is scheduled to be featured on the “Today Show” in March. A camera crew is scheduled to be filming in Kennett Square on Thursday, March 8.
Hutchins, the executive director of Historic Kennett Square, also informed borough council that acclaimed executive chef Scott Morozin has taken over the former La Madera Bistro at 102 E. State Street and will open his new restaurant, Verbena BYOB, this month.
In other news in the business district, Hutchins reported that Mrs. Robinson’s Tea Shop is moving from its location on North Union Street to the space previously occupied by Torelli’s men’s store on State Street. Clean Slate, a fair wage gift shop, is taking the space where Mrs. Robinson’s Tea Shop was located. Clean Slate will offer handmade goods from around the world. A late-May opening is planned for the store.
Additionally, Trail Creek Outfitters has signed a one-year lease for its current space on State Street.
Hutchins also reported that Tom Sausen was appointed as the president of Historic Kennett Square’s board, while Mike Pia, Jr. was selected as vice president during the reorganization meeting in late January. Chad Fenstermacher is the treasurer.
