Lancaster County is certainly making a name for itself these days, from being recently named on Forbes’ list of Best Places to Travel in 2019, one of the 10 Coolest U.S. Cities to Visit in 2018 (also by Forbes), and one of the Best Places to Live by U.S. News & World Report, and now, in The New York Times.
The media outlet posted an article in late July singing the praises of the county’s ever-growing food scene. While the thought of Lancaster might conjure up images of the Amish, cornfields and covered bridges, the little Central Pennsylvania city has changed considerably over the years, even being dubbed “the new Brooklyn” by the New York Post. The New York Times praised the changes, saying, “The seven-square-mile city is now a hive of culinary diversity.” Among the dining options mentioned are local favorites like Lancaster Central Market, The Pressroom, Issei Noodle, Grape Leaf Cafe and more.
So if you’re planning to make a trip to Lancaster, Pennsylvania soon, be sure to grab a bite in town and don’t forget to schedule a visit to Lancaster Bible College!
