“Do you know of any deserving young beginner lately set up,” members of Ben Franklin’s mutual aid society would ask one another, “whom it lies in the power of the Junto any way to encourage?”

They’d ask the same thing about “deserving stranger[s] arrived in town since last meeting.” And while neither description exactly matches MacGregor Mann, who’s cooked in Philadelphia for more than a decade, they’re close enough. Before naming his solo debut after Franklin’s eclectic club, the Garces vet went on a culinary walkabout ranging from an Idaho fly-fishing lodge to a stage at Denmark’s Noma­—often named as the best restaurant in the world. And when he returned, he was bent on digging deeper into his home turf.

Garces Protege MacGregor Mann Is Returning to Area

MacGregor Mann, who was chef de cuisine at Amada has returned to the area. Michael Klein is reporting that Mann is opening a BYOB, Junto in Chadds Ford. Junto promises “Pennsylvania-sourced ingredients prepared with a blend of old world techniques and modern cuisine knowledge.”

After leaving the Garces mothership, Mann staged at Denmark’s Noma for eight months. Noma was named the best restaurant in the world in 2010, 2011 and 2012.

Mann is predicting a Spring opening for Junto but today you can find him at Fairmount’s La Calaca Feliz. Like Feliz owner Tim Spinner, Mann was often seen on Jose Garces’ Iron Chef teams.
