Comments : Odettes is closed, and is in such bad shape, the 1794 building is in danger of being dismantled by developers who want the property. Preservationists would like to see it saved. See the Buck County Herald, 5/15/14, at p. A7.

Comments : Odette (1898-1978) who had owned the restaurant was a well-known actress, singer and violinist. Her father was opera singer Charles Belza (real name Cuignard). On stage, she was Odette Myrtil, using her mothers maiden name. This information, apparently first in a series, is from the Bucks County Herald, 7/24/14, p. A9. The article offers fascinating stories about Odette.
