BERWYN – As warm weather continues, there's a new outdoor dining area in town.

Lavergne's Tavern in Berwyn opened its long-awaited patio Sept. 14, just in time for Berwyn's annual Oktoberfest celebration Sept. 15 and 16, according to a news release from the business.

Owners Jerry and Jorge Hernandez had been planning a patio for the restaurant since they converted the old Garv’s Inn building at East and Windsor avenues into their tavern in June 2016, the release stated.

“Building Lavergne’s Tavern meant more than just opening another restaurant. It was a homecoming, a return to Berwyn, to people I grew up with and love," Jerry Hernandez said in the release. "The number one goal is for Berwyn residents to feel like Lavergne’s is their hometown spot."

Lavergne’s patio features a 2,000-square-foot area with paved brick walkways, cedar siding, cast-iron outside fencing, Edison-style outdoor lighting and custom, handmade, park-style benches for "a casual, unique ambiance in the heart of the historic Berwyn Depot District," the release stated.

The patio can seat more than 75 people, adding considerable dining space to the restaurant, according to the release. It will be open during kitchen hours as weather allows.
