“The smell of the food was intoxicating. If it were possible, the taste even more so. I noticed my husband and I stopped talking because we couldn’t stop eating. Then I noticed how quiet all the other diners were because they too were captivated by every bite. It was like a scene from the movie Chocolate where every person was in love with every bite. This place is Lancaster’s hidden gem!”— Susan Kiskis
