Restaurant week is returning to Lancaster, PA. What a great opportunity to “eat your way through the city”.  Starting Monday March 24th – March 30th   forty restaurants are participating in this event.

Don't miss out on trying one of these great restaurants. There are many different menu packages available starting at $10 up to $40 per person.  These options are too good to pass up.  Make sure to check back as we "eat our way through the city" for some great reviews and pictures.

ForknSpoon is a little cafe serving breakfast, lunch and dinner located in an old 1800's building right on Prince St. Gallery Row.  They specialize in fresh gourmet comfort foods. 

Annie Baileys is a perfect choice for the month of March is Lancaster's only authentic Irish Pub.   Recently remolded after the Victorian Dublin style this pub is located on King St. near the convention center.

One of Lancaster City's newest restaurants the Aussie and the Fox will be one of my choices next week.  The proprietors have blended the playful Aussie with a timeless sophistication of the Fox, and produced a unique blend of Australian and American cuisine.

These are just a few of the many participating restaurants.  Check back next week when we review all the fantastic food we have enjoyed.
