JG Domestic Restaurant Review: The next time you take the train to Philly or are anywhere near town, head to this smart eatery at Cira Centre from an Iron Chef. Jose Garces’ venture delivers seasonal and farm-sourced American dishes in a country store-meets-urban chic setting. The kitchen circles back to the source every time, from the house-made charcuterie to the rainbow trout obtained from the Pocono Mountains, and even the daily “whole animal,” which might be wood oven-roasted Jidori chicken. Ample vegetable selections beckon to even a carnivore; celebrations of the season spotlight the likes of Brussels sprouts with prosciutto and parsnip agnolotti with kale in a pear brown-butter sauce. For dessert? Try beignets with a buttery bourbon sauce or an old-fashioned chocolate cake for two.
