Bob Ross, the owner of Ambler’s Gypsy Blu restaurant, will take over the former Bernie’s Hatboro property at 58 S. York Road.
Ross told Patch that he’s signing a lease this week and is rebranding under the name “Ross & Co., Kitchen, Taps, Cocktails”. He expects to open in early 2024.
Ross took over Gypsy Blu in June 2020. According to Patch, the new restaurant’s menu will be similar to the upscale, casual American fare, specialty cocktails and extensive wine list found at Ross’ Ambler restaurant.
Bernie’s Hatboro closure came after a raid by state authorities in June for a liquor license violation. A March PLCB report found that Bernie’s served an “unlimited or indefinite amount” of alcoholic beverages for 31 days over five months, including unlimited mimosas that were served at a set price of $21.
