James Beard finalists Rich Landau and Kate Jacoby continue to advance their plant-based philosophy at a new Chester County complement to their successful 12-year-old Center City eatery, Vedge. Bringing new life to the former Inn Keeper’s Kitchen across from the Dilworthtown Inn outside West Chester, the rustically elegant Ground Provisions market and dining destination offers a sustainable, enviro-friendly experience.
The market is stocked with homemade wraps, kombuchas, teas, and fair-trade, local and small-batch dry goods. Its coolers are well stocked with quality wines, beers, ciders and spirits.
Full-service dining is available at Ground Provisions Thursday-Saturday starting at 5 p.m. The curated five-course seasonal menus are inventive, with options like tomato fennel pie, lasagna verde, and maitake with a black-garlic glaze. There’s a full bar, or you can BYOB ($25 corkage fee). And while there’s no table service during the day, the front porch is perfect for kicking back with some food from the market. 1388 Old Wilmington Pike, West Chester, (610) 355-4411, groundprovisionspa.com.
