Village Italian Bistro closed earlier this month following the Oct. 11 death of owner Jacqueline Geiger, but a Hatboro official said the eatery is expected to reopen soon.
Calling its closure a "very temporary situation," the source said the restaurant is expected to open within the next 30 days. "It is in the hands of the attorneys."
The restaurant, which is located in a strip mall along with a bank and several other storefronts, is part of the age-restricted Victorian Village residential community at 420 S. York Road in Hatboro.
When reached for comment Sunday, Hatboro Main Street Manager Stephen Barth said, "No plans will be made until after Oct. 31st at which time Victorian Village, the owners of the site, will evaluate future plans."
