About Philadelphia

Fine Food & Spirits

  • JG Domestic is a contemporary American restaurant serving artisanal food crafted from the finest available domestic ingredients.The menu changes as new products come into season, and nearly always includes products such as produce, honey, eggs or herbs from Chef Garces’ environmentally sound Luna Farm in nearby Bucks County. Hand-crafted cocktails and a thoughtful assortment of American wines and craft beers complete the experience.

About Chef Garces

  • Since opening his first restaurant, Amada, less than a decade ago, Chef Jose Garces has emerged as an enormous talent and one of the nation’s most gifted chefs and restaurateurs. Today, he is the owner and operator of more than a dozen restaurants across the country, plus a thriving event planning division and 40-acre Luna Farm. He is a 2009 winner of the James Beard Foundation’s prestigious “Best Chef, Mid-Atlantic” award and one of only a few chefs in the country to hold the coveted title of Iron Chef. Chef Garces is also the author of two cookbooks, The Latin Road Home (Lake Isle Press, October 2012), a culinary and cultural tour of Ecuador, Spain, Mexico, Cuba and Peru, and his stunning first cookbook, Latin Evolution (Lake Isle Press, Fall 2008).
