You’re sitting at the upstairs bar with your favorite cocktail in hand, only to still be scanning the list of impressive better-than-bar wines for a Pinot Grigio to pair with your dinner. The bartender is attentive, yet laid back. Upbeat lounge music sets the tone. Your surroundings are contemporary, sleek and sophisticated, without the pretension. You’re comfortable in this casual, urban environment. Simply put, you’re enjoying your night, and it has hardly started.
Only ten minutes away, you can find yourself on winding, back country roads, passing Amish buggies and taking in the sight of the gorgeous surrounding farmland. Surprise surprise… you’re in Lancaster County. More specifically, you’re downtown in the heart of the city’s vibrant northwest corridor at FENZ Restaurant. This former 19th century factory building has been renovated into one of Lancaster’s most recent and refreshing restaurants. The combination of historic character and contemporary design makes for a relaxed, yet stylish atmosphere. The menu items carry that same essence. Personal small -bite favorites include the French fries with truffle oil, scallops with apple-wood bacon in a Dijon mustard sauce, and the platter of assorted cheeses.
When you’re looking to cut back on vacation expenses without giving up on class, consider Lancaster County. FENZ Restaurant is just one example of such refreshing sophistication in this area. What’s more, you’re a hop, skip and a jump from Amish Country. Enjoy the diversity of Lancaster County for yourself.
FENZ Restaurant is right down the street from Franklin & Marshall College and the Lancaster Arts Hotel. It is also only several blocks from downtown Lancaster’s Gallery Row, the Lancaster County Convention Center, Central Market, the Fulton Theatre, and other center city attractions.
