James Carr Signature Chef

Busing tables as a 14-year-old in Philadelphia ignited James’s passion for the food industry. “I was enamored by what was happening around me; I was eager to learn more and the chef was more than happy to teach me. I guess the rest is history.” These days, James loves sourcing fresh ingredients at local Farmers’ markets and roadside stands near his home in rural Lancaster County. “I like challenging myself and learning new techniques. When I create something and have our guests compliment the dish, it is very satisfying. It’s my goal to make sure my passion is represented in everything I serve.”
