ABOUT MAE'S

About Owner and Executive Chef Josh Taggart…

After award winning stints opening restaurants in Philadelphia - including Lacroix, Tony Clark’s and Rae at the Cira Center, all which won Esquire Magazine’s Best New Restaurant of the Year - Chef Taggart moved his culinary art to Chester County. There he helmed the prestigious kitchens of the Dilworthtown Inn and Duling-Kurtz, among other fine establishments. In 2020, he finally realized his lifelong dream of opening his own restaurant – Mae’s of West Chester.

About Mae’s…

Unlike most area restaurants, Mae’s is chef driven, owned and operated. Quality, creativity and consistency are key! Chef Taggart designed Mae’s as a Farm to Table BYOB in the heart of downtown West Chester with menus that change seasonally highlighting fresh, locally sourced ingredients. Our restaurant has a warm, rustic, inviting vibe encouraging you to relax and celebrate with family and friends.

Services at Mae’s…

In addition to our restaurant experience, Mae’s has a lengthy history of providing extraordinary catering services. Some of our more popular menus are shown on our website or Chef Taggart can customize a menu to make yours a one-of-a-kind event.


Our restaurant at 39 W. Gay Street, West Chester is coming soon!

  • Josh and Erin did such an amazing job for our company retirement party. Everyone raved about the food and presentation. They were so easy to work with, prompt, professional. We will definitely be using them again! 5 stars
  • I have hired many catering companies over the years for parties and Mae’s Catering has been the best experience by far. Josh and Erin were so helpful, professional and responsive when determining food choices and party logistics. When they arrived, I was blown away on how beautifully the food was prepared and displayed. Things got even better when we tasted the food. Everything was absolutely delicious. Everyone raved about the food and it really took the party to another level. I can’t wait to hire them again for my next event!
  • Josh came to our backyard dinner party for 25 people in June and did a fantastic job! The menu was seasonal and prepared perfectly. Everyone raved about the appetizers, salad, and main course, as well as the dessert. He was on time and polite. Highly recommend!
