Auditions: Nacho Cabra

Nacho Cabra- The world's first Nacho Pub, presented by Scott Paules and Phil Deren.

Although currently working together in the digital technology industry, Scott and Phil have paired their individual passions outside the office for a combo everyone is sure to love - nachos and beer. Scott's single-layer nachos are made to order and served up fast with your choice of toppings and desired heat level from homemade sauces. Phil's German-purist-influenced beer pairings are guaranteed to quench your thirst and cool your tongue.

An avid home cook, Scott has worked at all levels in a variety of independent restaurants in Pennsylvania, Tennessee, and Florida. He credits each establishment with inspiring him to become his own restaurateur. Phil has been brewing beer at home for over a decade, heavily inspired by his upbringing in Germany and its proud beer culture. For the Taste Test Audition, Phil will present beers he feels best represent the styles of beers he plans to brew if Nacho Cabra becomes a reality.

Join us April 27-30 and May 4-6 to help us decide if this concept should be #yorksnextbite. If this is a success, Nacho Cabra could be one of a few concepts to pop up for 3 months next door at the Taste Test Bar & Restaurant and potentially end up in a permanent storefront in downtown York.

Auditions: Pari's Tasting Table

Pari's Tasting Table- Progressive French Creole

Chef Komal Shah has been in the culinary industry for more than 10 years after her education at NCC Culinary Institute in Bethlehem. She has cooked under Chef Emeril Lagasse at Emeril's and NOLA restaurants in New Orleans where she learned the art of both French and Creole cooking as well as under Iron Chef Jose Garces in Philadelphia. Now she wants to pair her knowledge of them together in the ultimate dining experience and open her own concept called Pari's Tasting Table, named after her one year old daughter Pari. 

Komal's menu takes low-country New Orleans style dishes and gives them a traditional French twist with touches of molecular gastronomy. Think five courses of small plates like Cajun Caviar: stuffed apple crepes + beet ginger chutney + celery pearls or Pork Boudin Balls: curry white beans cassoulet + zinfandel reduction + herb gel.

In one word: mouthwatering.

Come support Komal by trying her food and giving feedback. If this is a success, she could be one of a few concepts to pop up for 3 months next door at the Taste Test Bar & Restaurant and potentially end up in a permanent storefront in downtown York.

April 12-16 and 19-23
Weds-Sat 5:30 or 7:30pm: $45/person, five course dinner
Sun 12-3pm: $45/person, five course new orleans brunch

Pari's will accommodate vegetarians/vegans or any other allergies. Please let them know when you are seated for your dinner. 
This is a BYOB event. Recommended wine varietals for this cuisine: zinfandel, pinot noir, malbec, tempranillo, sauvignon blanc.

Chef Lauren Anile

I grew up in the small town of Red Lion, PA, with my father owning a pizza shop/restaurant in York and then in Boiling Springs, so all I knew was food. I would enjoy watching my nona cook at home and then work in the family restaurant with my father. My nona, grandmother in Sicilian, would wake up early just to get the pasta sauce started for dinner that day. There were times she spent the whole day doing nothing but cook. My inspiration for wanting to share this type of simple but delicious food with others came from learning and helping her and also getting to eat what was prepared.
