Restauranteurs continue to bring Delaware County’s restaurant scene to new heights.

Case in point is the work of two Main Line restauranteurs who have brought their own style to Media’s Two Fourteen, writes Ed Williams for Main Line Today.

Loic Barnieu of La Belle Epoque, Tap 24 and Sterling Pig, has joined Mike Hackett of House to convert the former Diego’s Cantina & Tequilla Bar into Two Fourteen at 214 W. State Street.  

Hackett is the chef and word is he loves to talk food.

For cocktails, there’s the Media Mule with house infused ginger syrup, the Paper Plane with Old Overholt Rye and the Karamel’s a Bitch expresso martini.

There’s also a focus on American wines with a private 214 Cabernet label from Media’s Backroads Wine Company.

Season outdoor dining is available, along with pub-height tables, four-person booths and a back area infused with natural light.

Hackett’s menu is seasonal modern American. 

Standouts include the ring-molded orange carrot confit, leek-and-mushroom bread pudding, tender lamb meatballs with tahini sauce, and a vivid green chermoula.

A favorite with diners is the 214 Waygu Burger with bourbon bacon jam, dill aioli and chedder and peppery arugula.

There’s also a weekend brunch and a rotating dessert menu.
