A new fine dining experience with old fashioned hospitality is available now in Glen Mills, with the opening of John and Christina Talbot ‘s Taste & Sea Seafood Steaks & Libations, writes Pete Bannan for the Daily Times.

The Glen Mills couple opened the restaurant at the former Pescatores on Wilmington Pike.

“We call it coastal elegance: the sea and the sand,” said Christina. “Bringing back the guest experience of fine dining and some of that old-school hospitality experience, that’s the goal.”

One of the specialties at Taste and Sea Seafood Steaks and Libations is the Salmon Wellington, a variation on Beef Wellington.

The restaurant name is taken from Psalms 34:8, “Taste and see the goodness of the Lord.”

“We attribute all the success of this coming to God and his hand in everything. It’s just been a true blessing,” Christina said.

John Talbot has been in the restaurant business for 30 years, with training at the Philadelphia Restaurant School.  He was executive chef at Creed’s Seafood and Steaks in King of Prussia for 22 years.

“We always wanted to open our own restaurant and we wanted to do it ourselves,” said John. “With this location we like that we are still in Delaware County.’

John has brought in Charlie Moronski as a partner and to serve as executive chef.
