Lancaster City Restaurant Week, a biannual campaign to promote local food businesses, kicks off Monday. At the time of going to press, 29 companies are participating, a group that includes sit-down restaurants, food trucks and a food stand. As was the case in the spring, special menus and offers will also apply to takeout orders as a nod to the pursuit of social distancing.
It has been five months since restaurants and bars got the green light to reopen indoor dining rooms and resume pre-pandemic operations. But with the easing of restrictions came a labor shortage, and many companies, like LNP | LancasterOnline reported this spring that it was operating on a reduced schedule due to understaffing.
Some of the newcomers to LCRW include the Jamaican-flavored Got Jerk Island Bar & Grill, Norbu (serving homemade Bhutanese and Nepalese cuisine), Nano Grill burger truck, Psychedeli on the roof of Tellus360 and the French fries shop. loaded known as the SpiceKings Kitchen.
LCRW continues until Sunday, September 19. For a full list of restaurants and other details, visit lancastercityrestaurantweek.com or check out the event’s Instagram page at instagram.com/lancastercityrestaurantweek.
