Comment Worth It’s Own Poston February 14th, 2013 at 11:09 am
Here is a comment from the restaurant open thread that I thought should have its own Post:
I am a home grown former Lancaster resident and LHS alum, and over the past ten years plus I have had the opportunity to work all over the US in the hospitality field, managing several restaurants and hotels as a food & beverage director and hotel general manager. I have been working on a unique authentic restaurant concept for the past several years. My family is now growing and I am on the verge of leaving behind the remote resort living conditions and trading it in for the family-friendly Midwest that I left behind years ago. It would give me great satisfaction to bring truly good food to Lancaster in a family-friendly environment that is still elegant enough to enjoy on a date with your significant other. My per-person average check would hover somewhere around $21 including beverages and dessert. Think Applebee's, Texas Road House, ect with soul and FRESH authentic food that doesn't come from a frozen box. I remember the first time in my life that I had great food, and unfortunately it was not in Lancaster. I am still in the process of registering my entity and in the research and development phase, but as part of that I would like to know how you feel this concept would be received in Lancaster. I am about 12-15 months out from a grand opening, but as time goes on, I will share more about my concept with you and take in your feedback regarding what you would like to see in a neighborhood restaurant. If all of this sounds like a refreshing change of pace to you, please let me know. I have two potential leasing sites in mind at the moment, but let me know if you have any suggestions. Thank you for your feedback - I look forward to sharing more with you in the future!
