  1. There are several craft breweries as well as craft distillers that have popped up all over Central PA. I am in agreement that as far as the food program goes, Millworks, by leagues, surpasses Troegs. Millworks takes full advantage of seasonal offerings to craft their extensive menu. The service is well versed in all of the brews, and enthusiastically pairs them with their menu. The best time to go in my opinion, is an event tapped 3rd in the Burg. An event that offers attendants to meet artists, as well as engage in the best Harrisburg has to offer in Arts& Culture. Who knew so much was located right here in Central PA? Keystone Proud, Kat
  2. Thanks for the intel. I will make my way there soon! Speaking of places to hit in the Philadephia area, have you been to to Easton, Pa? I stumbled upon a great spot, well actually a market. Easton Public Market . Its incredible. I'll will stop over on my way to Philly. Will travel for food, kat
  3. I recently attended a book signing for Pizza Camp. This is a cookbook that Joe Beddia authored, and a foreward is written by Andrew Knowlton of Bon Appetite. He is originally from Lancaster, Pa. Lancaster culitvates good food, as well as great food people. I have been meaning to make a trip to Pizza Beddia. I will report back with my take. Hungry for 'za, kat
  4. Dining in South-Central Pennsylvania

    So sorry for the delay in my response, but to answer your question, I have not been to Bel Paese in several years. Its was one of my favorites, and I need to add it back in my rotation. There are two other Italian restaurants that I may reccomend that I have dined at on multiple occasions. Moonlight in Dover is most definitely worth the trip, as well as Tutoni's on North George St. The market you speak of is New Eastern Market on the east end of town. Wonderful selections of what local purveyors have to offer fill that building every Friday afternoon. You should certainly make an effort to visit Bel Paese, and report back! I look forward to reading your review! - kat
  5. Paid Parking Slowly Killing Reston Town Center?

    At least at Tysons II there is valet. BTW, its complimentary if you are dining inside the mall. Tysons is free too. Free parking for all, kat
  6. Pop-Up Restaurants

    Taste Test : A Pop Up Reimagined I wrote about these several pop ups a few months ago. Taste Test now has a brick & mortar in the Royal Square neighborhood of York city. They serve a delicious selection of goods ranging from muffins to bagels sourced from Brooklyn. While you are indulging on those amazin' pastries, you can sip on an espresso-based beverage drawn from La Colombe coffee beans. Anyone who knows, knows La Colombe. The location will serve as a cafe offering free wifi, and home to future pop ups. There are two listed so far, with many more to follow. The kitchen" incubator" will provide a place to mentor,& facilitate successful food businesses. Students, and advisors from York College Department of Hospitality will serve as a bridge of both support& mentorship. This could possibly launch a new model for urban revitalization. I will certainly be following their progress. Bravo to York City! Hometown proud, kat
  7. I appears that you read the NY Post. The dining revitilazation has also been equated to" New Portlandia", if you read Paste. All good, if thats whats bring travelers to Lancaster. The city has seen an influx of artist, musicians, culinary talent(I may add have roots in Lancaster), as well as humanitarians that will no doubt receive recognition on the national stage. Locals travel away from their hometown for many reasons. I have been away for nearly twenty five years. I am home. My intent is to bring Central Pa their due. One bite at a time. I have cherished memories here in PA, and look forward to making countless more. Perhaps, I may become the food voice of Central Pa. Dare to dream. Dreamer, kat
  8. Please do!! There are so many amazing choices. POUR on Prince, The Pressroom, John Jeffries, Ma(i)son, Luca,Square Coffee, Passenger, Barberet Bistro& Bakery, Silantra,Thistle Finch Distillery, and I could go on & on. I lived in the District for many years, and my expectations have been set high. All of these places are contenders even among DC's, as well as NY's finest. If you find your way back, please let me know. Ill be more than happy to be your guide to all things delicious in Lancaster County. Food Guide, kat
  9. Dinner at Ma(i)son This is just a preview of what may be instore for all who may be joining me on 2/25 for dinner. Incredible, kat
  10. any dish on the progress of A Rake's Progress? You may say Im a bit curious. nothing new. I may very well be the Kevin Bacon of the food scene. I worked for Spike & Charlie back in the early 2000s. Spike certainly has come a long way. Good for him. former waitstaff, kat
  11. I applaud Chef Silverman in his decision. In my opinion, $280 all inclusive, is a great value for not only for the food, but the experience of joy to be had by the diner. Not to mention moments that are your, & yours alone in sharing with friends about what an amazing meal that was created by a team that clearly enjoys what they do. I look forward to writing my review of Pineapple& Pearls after my birthday. I just wish it wasn't until May. So excited, kat
  12. Did this dinner come to fruition? If so, awesome, if not, doesn't hurt to gather another!! See you soo, Ferhat! Corduroy family, kat
  13. New York Times Travel feature for Luca: "A Pennsylvania Restaurant That's Hot in More Ways than One" by Kathryn O'Shea-Evans on nytimes.com A sister restaurant to Ma(i)son. Luca, unlike its sister, serves liquor. Its nothing short of amazing. Central PA eats, kat
