About Chef McPhelin and Maize:

Maize Restaurant corn logo Chef Matthew McPhelin graduated with honors from The Restaurant School at Walnut Hill College in Philadelphia. He refined his culinary skills and his creativity flourished when he worked in some of best, award-winning kitchens in Philadelphia. Matt finally realized his dream of opening his own restaurant in 2009.

Everything on Maize's menu is made from scratch, using locally grown items, at the peak of their season. The menu changes weekly.

Maize Restaurant Be Amazed at Maize

A Fresh-from-the-Farm Dinner
Sunday, August 16, 6:30 pm

When I first interviewed Chef Matthew McPhelin in 2010, six months after he opened his intimate, BYOB in downtown Perkasie, he was one of the only chefs in Bucks County sourcing his ingredients locally. Almost six years later, he stills makes his rounds every day to local farms to buy what's fresh, and builds his menu around what he finds.

Join us on Sunday, August 16th at 6:30 pm and be prepared for a delicious and fun evening. We will have the restaurant all to ourselves. It's a great space, with an open window to the kitchen, where you can watch Matt and his staff create our meal. After dinner, Matt will hang out with us, chatting and answering any questions you might have.


Since the menu will be based on what is fresh and available locally, we don't have specifics yet (see some of Maize's past dishes below). But in addition to Maize's savory signature popcorn and just-baked biscuits, the first course will be fish/ shellfish, the main course will be meat-based, followed by dessert.

NOTE: If you are a vegetarian (or love someone who is), or have certain food requests, please let us know when you purchase your ticket. Chef Matt is
happy to accomodate (all of his desserts are even gluten-free!).

Tickets are $70 per person TAX & TIP INCLUDED

Only 26 tickets are available. Please purchase by August 9.
Maize is BYOB.
(But we may have a surprise for you too!) 

And don't wait. This one is sure to sell out!
