Jason & Casey Simkins
Food - Company - Hospitality
Located in Collingswood, New Jersey, Porch and Proper is a place to celebrate the love of food, good company, and warm hospitality. Our focus is to bring our guests a contemporary and ever-changing menu of globally influenced dishes with a dedicated integrity to our local producers.
Porch and Proper sits in a 100-year-old building with historic charm. The space has been outfitted in rich walnut, warm leather, and crushed velvet by designer Hillary O'Carroll. The porch is the perfect setting for outdoor dining; a lush private garden outfitted with herbs and flowers grown and used in many of our dishes.
Executive Chef, Ryan McQuillan (Talula's Table, Mercato, Yardley Inn), is a Philadelphia native with experience in some of the finest kitchens around the world. Porch and Proper works in close collaboration with local farms to bring the best quality organic product into our kitchen and onto the Porch and Proper menu. With an unrelenting focus to showcase premiere seasonal ingredients, Chef McQuillan works tirelessly to develop and present truly exciting and delicious food.
Jason and Casey Simkins, owners of Porch and Proper, are long-time industry veterans. Both have tenured histories managing Philadelphia locations for Starr Restaurants (Buddakan, Morimoto, Parc, Alma de Cuba). Their appreciation for great food, service and a community vibrant with culture and energy is what ultimately brought Porch and Proper to Collingswood.
