Philadelphia, PA - After a two-year hiatus, The Chef's Best Tour is back, and the signature fundraiser of ACT in Faith of Greater West Chester is back this year. However, what was a one-night, in-person event has morphed into a six-week restaurant tour. Guests will get the opportunity to sample the delectable offerings of local restaurants.
The Chef's Best Tour is Back – in West Chester
Starting on Monday, April 11, four West Chester restaurants – Ram's Head Bar and Grill, Opa Taverna, Split Rail Tavern, and Slow Hand – will offer a free signature appetizer to patrons participating in Chef's Best. All diners will have the opportunity to vote for the "Best of Chef's Best." a $50 ticket entitles the purchaser to one coupon for each of the four restaurants on tour. Guest may redeem the coupon through Thursday, May 26.
"We're excited to be back and defend our title," said Ram's Head Chef James Jones, whose Asian-Glazed Pork Taco took the crown as the 2019 Chef's Best winner. "We can't wait to share our brand of elevated comfort food at this year's Chef's Best competition. Our approach is always the same in competition and the restaurant: high-quality ingredients speak for themselves!"
All proceeds benefit ACT in Faith of Greater West Chester. This interfaith organization seeks to empower un- and under-employed West Chester residents to stabilize their households and build toward sustainability. Services provided by ACT in Faith include eviction and utility shut-off prevention, employment support services, personal care, household items, food staples, and homemade frozen meals available to all shoppers at its Community Cupboard.
"It was a blow to have to cancel Chef's Best in 2020, literally days before it was to take place," says ACT in Faith Board President Denise Antonelli, who is also a partner at the West Chester law firm Gawthrop Greenwood. "And then 2021 was lost as well. As we discussed the 2022 event, we knew we wanted to reengage with the restaurant community. With COVID restrictions lifted, we thought encouraging in-person dining was better to support them. And so, the tour concept was born. We hope that everyone finds it as fun as we've imagined it during our planning!"
Chef’s Best 2022 lead sponsors are Gawthrop Greenwood, PC, and FPA Wealth Management.
