The sign out front doesn’t lie. Short of driving an hour west into farm country, Harvest Seasonal Grill is the closest we metro-dwellers will get to a fresh, honest-to-goodness farm-to-table meal. Chef Brian Duffy sources his menu from 75 Pennsylvania farms; butternut squash and apples from Gettysburg, milk from Lancaster and cheese from Chester Springs, to name but a few. Dishes are upscale yet unfussy—the spring menu features Coriander Dusted Scallops, Vegetable Kebabs, and Sweet Pea Chicken. It’s all just a few days old, and you can taste the difference. (In the future, Duffy plans to grow his own vegetables just a mile down the road.) The commitment to freshness also means a focus on health. For example, Chef Duffy replaces refined sugar with agave nectar, which dramatically lowers calorie content. Picture it: eating a 400-calorie gourmet meal on a flower-kissed stone terrace, with a seasonal draft beer, boutique wine, or cocktail. Worth a trip, don’t you think?
