This weekend, Junto in Chadds Ford is serving up a four-course whole duck tasting menu. And while it will always be focused on showcasing the aged ducks at the center of the plate, the kitchen will be varying the menu each night.
The menu is $50 per person and designed for two people. If there are more than two guests, the restaurant recommends some accompanying dishes. And remember: Junto is BYOB, so plan ahead.
You can make your reservations by calling the restaurant at 484-574-8041. The menu will be available until Sunday night.

This is mostly because we’ve had such a good year already, and because our neighborhoods are so full of amazing restaurants and chefs doing the best work of their careers. Hard as it might be to say, what Philly is due for is a cull. To keep the scene healthy. And Santa, sometimes hard choices need to be made.
