Not even two years old and a 2015 Best Newcomer, this modern farmhouse BYOB has established itself as a foodie destination. In the 40-seat dining room, Chef MacGregor Mann offers dishes at once familiar—lots of Pennsylvania Dutch influences and locally sourced, seasonal ingredients—yet entirely new. Free range chicken with sunchoke succotash, slow cooked beef cheek accompanied by sugarkraut, and charcuterie plate where Lebanon bologna rubs shoulders with chicken liver mousse—all show the depth of Mann’s vision. Other standouts include alder grilled sturgeon, egg yolk ravioli and warm cornbread with apple butter that welcomes guests on arrival. While Junto racks up awards (3 bells from Craig LaBan, Open Table’s Diners’ Choice Winner) and Philly-centric diners make the pilgrimage to Glen Mills, we’re feeling lucky Junto is right here in our own backyard.
