A big ol’ wine me, dine me shout out to Lauren Starling Hope, who is Chef Tournant at Jag’s Steak and Seafood in West Chester. She’s a cheftestant on Top Chef this season. I watch this show anyway, but hey, now I have a local to root for! I’ll be interested to hear her story unfold on the show.

I also need to try out Jag’s for more than just cocktails– I’ve heard great things. I just never get up to West Chester!

    We’ve been to Jags twice and had two disappointing experiences. So now, when we find ourselves in West Chester, Mesh is the restaurant of choice. It is consistently excellent.

    I like Mesh a lot– though I haven’t yet reviewed it officially– and like the Sturkeys’ style as a whole.

    Didn’t the owners of Jags sell off their ownership of 20 Mile House. I’ve heard grumblings that the service and food were very sub-par.

    I had to Google Chef Tournant to see what it was.
    Who knew all the dynamics going on in a kitchen?
    I always imagined some old lady named Marg back there screaming at people.

    I love Top Chef – it’s my favorite cooking show on TV. I know the situations are a little zany, but I love picking a favorite at the beginning of the season and then watching them progress…

    Anyway, I went to Jag’s during Restaurant Week and thought it was delicious. I definitely plan to go back.
