DAY 5: 6-Course Seasonal Bounty Dinner Series
Jaxon in Northern Liberties is the kind of place where people who care about food can have a good time. The impeccably fresh ingredients, often sourced from local purveyors, translate into deeply satisfying dishes like soft shell crabs with spaghetti and parmesan and cauliflower tempura with sour cherries, smoked tahini, and sumac. Philadelphia Magazine lauds Jaxon, saying, “This place is all heart and soul…with a not too frou-frou menu of seasonal eats.” With its whitewashed brick walls, Edison bulbs illuminating dangling terrariums, and its open kitchen, Jaxon is warmth incarnate, or what the Inquirer calls a “cozy, grown-up place to eat.” Chef Paul Zelinksy maintains this impeccable atmosphere with aplomb, having trained under some of Philadelphia’s finest chefs — Marc Vetri, Jeff Michaud, and Marcie Turney — before taking the creative reins at Jaxon. We will be taking over Jaxon for the evening, and Chef Zelinksy will be happy to answer your questions and discuss what he sees as the ingredients for a great neighborhood restaurant.
About the Host:
Chef Zelinsky started working at local restaurants in his native New Jersey at the age of 16 and never looked back. Upon moving to Philly in 2012, he first cut his teeth at the Monaco Hotel, before moving on to train under some of the city's heaviest culinary hitters in Marc Vetri, Jeff Michaud and Marcie Turney. He took the helm at Jaxon in 2018.
