    A collective drive for success makes is the foundation behind this growing food scene, and it will be on full display March 3-10.

     

    “The collaboration and communication between restaurants in Lancaster City has really become part of the culture here,” added Chris.

     

    “Participating in restaurant week is an excellent opportunity for us to get new customers to try our food,” said Chelsea Zawisa, Owner of new Lancaster bagel shop Harvest Moon Bagel—and first-time participant in Lancaster City Restaurant Week. “Since we are still a very new business not everyone may know about us yet or have had the chance to stop in, restaurant week is a great way to feature some of our signature menu items and let everyone know what we are all about.”
