California Pizza Kitchen Has Closed; Midici To Open Later This Year at Cherry Hill Mall

UPDATE DECEMBER 2019: Stone Fire Pizza, a fast-casual concept with small plates, pizza, and salads by Midici, is now open. No booze. Probably BYOB.

The California Pizza Kitchen in the Cherry Hill Mall has closed permanently. All social media pages have been removed and it’s no longer listed on the corporate website. We enjoyed a few meals there over the years, but I have to admit, the last time we went (earlier this year) it was pretty dead in there so I can’t say I’m surprised.

Cherry Hill pizza lovers need not fret. A new, modern restaurant specializing in “authentic” Neopolitan pizza will be opening later in the year. MiDici will be located between Bahama Breeze and the new Fatburger, across from Seasons 52. According to the website, it looks like a more upbeat place with a tight menu.

The restaurant features two, 1000-degree wood-fired pizza ovens showcased in the “heart” (center) of the restaurant which are handbuilt in Naples, Italy and brought here. I’m not really a pizza eater, but they seem to have other items on the menu that I’ll be able to partake in. No word on gluten-free pizza dough, which was a big draw for gluten-sensitive pizza lovers at CPK.

Stay tuned for more as we get it.

South American Restaurant Que Ricas Opening in Westmont

Update: Que Ricas will be opening on Wednesday, December 18th!

A new restaurant specializing in South American fare such as empanadas and arepas will be opening at 46A Haddon Avenue in Westmont in early October.

Que Ricas announced on Facebook today that it will be “opening soon” with “a menu that caters to meat lovers, vegans, and the gluten-free community as well as featuring many locally sourced and organic ingredients.”

Haddon Township resident Sahar Soleymani comes from a family who has been in the restaurant business for over 40 years. They owned and operated long-standing Skyler’s Hoagies in Mount Laurel until they sold it earlier this year.

Soleymani explains, “We have always done delis and cheesesteak places but it was time to have something that represents who we are, and serve food that we feel good serving to the community.”

The menu at Que Ricas will feature treasured recipes passed down on her mother’s side of the family.

In addition to traditional South American cuisine, they will be doing Philly/Latin twists like the “Jawn” which is a Philly cheesesteak empanada and will be working on a porkroll, egg and cheese arepa.

The space is currently under construction so they are targeting a grand opening sometime between August and October.

More details as they become available. In the meantime, follow Que Ricas on Facebook where they will share a full menu soon.

Collingswood Italian Restaurant That’s Amore to Open Sister Restaurant in Merchantville

Update: Opening has been pushed back until at least July due to construction.

Closed since 2017, fans of Italian restaurant That’s Amore in Collingswood have reason to be excited. Owner/Executive Chef Alfredo Fischioni has emerged announcing he will be opening a sister restaurant called Amore Mio in Merchantville. The location at 177 S Centre Street was most recently occupied by Ms. Nancy’s Place. Chef Nancy Miller left Merchantville to open a new restaurant in Burlington.

Aiming for a May opening, Fischioni promises the same great Italian dishes albeit in a space even smaller than his Collingswood location. It will be interesting to see what kind of upgrades will be done to accommodate guests. If I recall correctly, it only seated about 20 people in tight quarters.

Either way, this is exciting news for Merchantville. I’m very much hoping they’ll have the wonderful housemade gnocchi on the menu. Yum!

Stay tuned for more info as I have it.
