Stopped in on Friday night for dinner with my wife. I'd been to the Italian BYOB (Teresa's Cafe) before, but had not been to the Next Door bar. Teresa's is located along a charming block of Wayne Avenue in downtown Wayne.

Essentially, Teresa's is a bar with some tables for two clustered in the front of the space. The bar runs the entire left hand side of the room and across from the bar is a series of booths. The room was very warm, cozy and inviting.

The beer selection was very impressive. There were about 20 beers on tap and then the book of beer detailed 100s of available bottles. The tap list was well balanced and featured a diverse selection of Belgian and American styles. I started my evening with Sly Fox Chester County Bitter from the cask. The waiter, Ryan, was friendly and knowledgable. We chatted about the beers available and he was a good resource.

I had a Terrapin Hopsecutioner to go with my meal. The food was wonderful. I opted for the steak frites while my wife had the mussels provencal. Both entrees were delicious and extremely reasonably priced. My wife decided to have some bread pudding for dessert, I went for a glass of Dark Horse's Plead the Fifth Imperial Stout which was a great way to wrap up a good meal.

The total bill including tax and tip was $70 which I thought was a good value for the quality meal I had. Teresa's Next Door is one of those beer bars that excels both with their food and their beer selection.

It's a great spot on the Main Line; one which I'll be visiting again in the future.

People keep making the correlation between this place and Monk's in Philly for a good reason; the food, the beer, the atmosphere, and the beer-savvy servers here would make you swear that this place is an offshoot of Tom Peters' fabled joint.

The one thing I do enjoy immensely about Teresa's is their geographical location and their (lack) of people; whereas Monk's is still my favorite bar on this side of the coast, it's very hard for me to have a relaxed evening where I can kick back and enjoy my beer with some Belgian-inspired finger food and pub fare, because well... everytime I end up going to Monk's it's always a freaking zoo inside -- good luck getting a seat at the bar unless you want to eerily stalk or creep behind one of the tenants until they get uncomfortable enough to move out of their seat.

That being said, the beer choice at Teresa's is almost as phenomenal as Monk's with about half the demand that Monk's gets; Bottles of Cantillon disappear within hours of hitting Monks, whereas I was able to enjoy a nice 75cl bottle of Iris here, followed by a 37.5cl bottle of 100% Lambic Classic Gueuze; the Russian River sours seem to be almost always be in ample supply here, and their rotating tap of harder to find Belgians is almost par with Tom Peters' eclectic weekly offerings.

The food here is absolutely amazing; I love that they have a charcuterie/cheeses option, as well as some dishes harder to come across (my friend tried his first escargot here) -- I would love to come back here to try the Dry-aged Wagyu in lieu of the Duck Confit Salad I had, and maybe try my hand at some of their other hearty entrees.

I'll have to give Teresa's Cafe a try as well since you can reportedly get the same drinks on either side of the establishment.

This was my first visit to Teresa's and I was impressed. They had a great selection with reasonable prices. Wait staff was both friendly and helpful. It was a Saturday night and super busy- now I know why! I had Pliny the Elder on tap and it was fantastic. I didn't eat there this time but will be back for sure. Teresa's is a gem of the 'burbs!
