Here goes nothing..

Bear with me & my excitement in stirring a new following toward South Central Pennsylvania Dining 

Stay tuned for my first review!!!

It might be your first review here in awhile, Kat, but you've been a member here for over eleven years, and actually started one of the most popular threads we've ever had: "Please Introduce Yourselves," with over 1,600 posts and 100,000 views.

Welcome back, and we're lucky to have you. 

Folks, Kat used to work at Corduroy, and now lives in York, PA, which is a straight shot up I-83 from Baltimore.

Don't worry about titling or tagging - I've got you covered with those two - we need mega-content from your area, and if you know anyone from that rapidly developing dining scene, please have them join us.

As Leo Steiner (who should still be with us) once said, "Who knows, you might become famous!"

Isn't this better than all that "Sieg Heil" bullshit?

Traveled to York, PA yesterday a town I've been to many times but got to see it through the eyes of a local filled with pride for her home town which made me see the magical side of this very special town. The day started at the Central Market where I was introduced to everything from pulled pork crepes to teff (an ancient grain) to craft beer to artisan baking to a burrito food truck INDOORS!!! All served with great pride and passion behind the making of these products. 

Then off to Otto's before this jewel closes, then off to Farm to Freezer (brilliant) and those delicious Thai food anywhere at District Thai!!!!! Checked all the galleries and shops in the Royal District even getting to meet some of the artists! 

And finished the day off at Collusion for a hand crafted beer and I was mesmerized by the canning machine at the bar waiting to fill a "Crowler" with your beer of choice!

I left York already planning my next visit and greatly appreciating the time and talents of the artisans in York who take the time to put their love and pride in their craft and then make it accessible to so many!! York has a lot of magic to share with all of us!! Thank you to all and I look forward to seeing, eating and drinking more in the near future of what you have to offer very soon!!

It was my absolute pleasure to be your guide to all the treasures my home city has to offer.  There is a tremendous selection of hidden gems here in York, as well as Central PA. Its heartwarming to meet likeminded persons that share my passion for both food and culture. This certainly marks one of many adventures we will venture on. 

 

grateful,

kat

I cannot remember which of the markets has the Markethouse pickle stand, but their sweethot pickles are the most sublime pickles on the planet. Truly. And it is always fun trying all forms of ham spread at any of these markets.


Kitkatpaddywak - I have not been to Bel Paese (I think that is what it is called) in a while (maybe 3 or 4 years). Have you been recently? What do you think?

  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!

Yeah I need to get back there. My wife's been a few times with just her mother more recently (maybe a year or so ago) and still enjoyed it.

I love to eat. This is no surprise. I also love to share spots that I enjoy with the masses, in hopes that they take my review, and visit said restaurant. York is where I grew up, and have returned to. There are plenty of some what good  restaurants. The issue I have with spots in this town is that they make a great first impression, but when I return for another meal, not so much. Does this happen in the DMV as well? Consistency is not their strong suit here. I've been to a few pop- ups that I raved  about, but it was short lived.  Am I too picky? Is my palate high maintenance? 

Asking for a friend,

kat
