Tails will be wagging as White Dog Cafe opens its fourth location on Saturday, September 26, 2020, at the Shoppes at Brinton Lake, in Glenn Mills, Delaware County Pennsylvania. The restaurant will open at 4 pm for dinner service.
White Dog Glen Mills has a large outdoor space with 104 seats including 15 at the outdoor bar. Guests can dine under an illuminated pergola or sit in one of the 16 lounge seats by a water feature. The outdoor bar will offer 14 beers on tap as well as cocktails and Devon’s Pour Richards Cold Brew on tap.
There are an additional 180 seats inside including 15 at the concrete bar which has brass trim and inlaid brass paw prints created by the bar designer’s own Golden Retriever. Thomas Moser chairs accent the bar area along with plush banquet seating and French Oak floors.
Local touches are everywhere. The bar area called the Den showcases a galley of 45 commissioned dog portraits by Jay McClellan, and there is space to add 15 additional paintings. Guests can purchase a painting to immortalize their favorite pup that will hang in the restaurant. McClellan’s sentimental and decorative works also cover the walls at White Dog Cafe Haverford and White Dog University City. His paintings juxtapose bold colors with graphic patterns and have stunning unique designs. McClellan will give anyone that purchases a painting the original drawing (a $250 value) and the painting that hangs within White Dog Glen Mills will display a small brass plate with the dog’s name and hometown on the frame. McClellan is donating half of the fee for each of the paintings to Brandywine Valley SPCA and Alpha Bravo Canine.
The restaurant is decked out to the K9s, the Garden Room has a brick floor, and hanging baskets with Edison bulbs. The room also has original prints of “best in show dogs” from the 1940s. The Living Room has handmade brass dog-shaped sconces on the walls, black marble tables, and a large working fireplace.
Michael Selser, former Executive Chef at White Dog Cafe Haverford will lead the kitchen at White Dog Glen Mills which will offer lunch, dinner, happy hour, and weekend brunch.
