I've probably been to Horn O Plenty ten times at this point and can honestly say that it's my favorite restaurant in Pennsylvania. I say this as a foodie who has traveled all over the world and all over Pennsylvania (my home state), as a person who tries to be a socially conscious consumer, and as a person who realizes the importance of the Slow Food Movement, particularly in Pennsylvania. The owners, Jeff and Mandi, are as knowledgeable, hardworking and compassionate as they come. And the food is spectacular - the attention to detail, the creative mixed with the traditional, the way the menu changes twice daily depending on what's been harvested. Find a way to get there if you can; it's worth the experience. Good for earth, good for body.
