COMING THIS WINTER: Bistec Brasserie
Chef Peter Bova held his first audition for Bistec Brasserie in August at the Taste Test Cafe & Audition Space. He was very well received by the public which landed him a spot in the next round in the Taste Test series at their long term audition space. Opening in late October/Early November, he will be serving classics from around Europe with his own new twists. Customers can get items like steak frites and moules frites, which can be accompanied by seasonal sides and wine pairings. Bistec will also offer lunch, weekend brunch, and a more casual late night bar menu.
Originally born in Maryland and raised in York, Chef Peter Bova has worked in a variety of kitchens across the country. Most notably, he was the opening Sous Chef at the critically acclaimed Abe Fisher, a fine dining Eastern European restaurant in Philadelphia. He was most recently the opening Sous Chef at Chais Delachaise, a wine bistro in New Orleans. Bova moved back to the York area in 2016 to be near family and assist with his family’s food truck, Forno Bova.
COMING IN 2018: Nacho Cabra
Nacho Cabra is a concept that Scott Paules and Phil Deren of Lancaster first presented in April at Taste Test’s short term audition space. These two men, whose both have backgrounds in the tech industry, have paired their passion for nachos and craft beer together to create a concept that the York community has come to love. Paules and Deren will be serving build-your-own style single layer nachos and their own recipes of beer (to be brewed by a local brewer). This combo will represent their ultimate goal of a brick and mortar “Nacho Brewpub”
The community can try their food again before their Spring stint on October 1st from 12-6 in the Taste Test Cantina.
The York community is invited to attend these long term pop ups and answer a series of questions about their experience. This will help the restaurateur tweak their concept and create a following for a possible brick and mortar location.
