John J. Jeffries is a must-visit if you're in Lancaster. My husband and I went in late July 2009 for an early anniversary dinner and were ecstatic. The restaurant's philosophy of local sourcing is sound and well executed. We're from the DC metro area and found the price-value ratio dead on. (We had a similarly priced but lesser quality dinner the night before in nearby Strasburg.) The quality and ingenuity in the kitchen were evident through all the courses (their steak tartare was the best I've ever had anywhere in the world) and the service was spot on. My only complaint is the wine list. Such great food deserves the high quality wines, intelligently paired. We were frustrated by the predominance of Pennsylvania selections. The wines just simply didn't do the food justice.
