Daniel SternIt’s about cooking what you feel.

Chef Daniel Stern is well known for putting his personal culinary spin on the ordinary and transforming it into an unexpected pleasure. For Stern, it’s about cooking what you feel and sometimes taking a risk for your guests so that they may try something new and different.

Stern is the chef and owner of R2L, the acclaimed modern American restaurant that is set on the 37th floor of Two Liberty Place in Center City Philadelphia. Stern, a Cherry Hill native, realized that he had actually found his true passion way back when he was a teenager, peeling apples in his mother’s bakery.  Stern spent many years learning in the best kitchens in New York, Washington, D.C., and California prior to venturing out on his own.
