G R OW I N G U P I N L A N C A S T E R County is a gift that I often take for granted. With a childhood in the country, I have memories of running barefoot through rich soil, picking ripe strawberries in the summer heat, and learning how to can, bake, and share the bounty of our rich farmland. My favorite meal was slippery pot pie with egg noodles, finished with homemade ice cream and sour cherry pie. We had food to match every moment and memory—it was a wonderful way to grow up. Lancaster’s food heritage is strong— Pennsylvania Dutch influence runs deep throughout the culture of the County and City, and I take it with me wherever I go. When I left Lancaster and moved to New York City, my eyes were opened to a completely new world of cuisine. It was inspirational to see the kaleidoscope of flavor profiles, but I always treasured my visits home to Lancaster for a comforting meal and a slice of pie. Lancaster was where we chose to raise our family and more than ever before, our food scene is paying homage to the classics while adding a modern, global twist. We now have every bit of what I found in New York, all while maintaining the storied legacy of local ingredients, homegrown goodness, and nostalgic flavors. We can enjoy a locally grown,

handmade apple pie after going to Citronelle for their Wagyu Beef Carpaccio. We can visit Sprout for a freshly-made spring roll before stopping by Central Market for a whoopie pie. The restaurants here in our great City are not only defining the regional food scene, they are lifting each other up while doing so. We’re sourcing locally living up to the Lancaster County reputation of freshness and quality. So many years after running through the fields, I am thankful that Fig can work to communicate the food heritage of our County and the food renaissance we are experiencing in our City. This summer, let the Lancaster food scene transport you—to past traditions, to present trends, and to future flavors. Enjoy. DEBORAH BRANDT & THE FIG INDUSTRIES TEAM

F R E S H FA C E Welcoming new businesses to the City of Lancaster. Andrew & Kate Martin

Fresh Face: Shot & Bottle AFTER MONTHS OF DREAMING, planning, demolition, reconstruction, and rehabilitation on the ground floor of the Griest Building, Andrew and Kate Martin are excited to transform Penn Square and open Shot and Bottle—a new unique restaurant, bar, and PA-focused liquor shop in the heart of Lancaster City. Shot and Bottle continues the intentional trend of shopping local by offering unique beverage selections from across the state. Shot and Bottle will offer products from eight local distilleries and an unmatched array of beer, wine, and spirits that are Pennsylvania made.

The Shot and Bottle family is ready to introduce Lancaster to products that haven’t been easily accessible until now. With experience and knowledge in spirits production, Andrew and Kate feel passionately that small craft spirits, craft beer, and local wines bring intricate attention to detail, quality ingredients, and creativity to their products. The nuances and intentionality that small batch producers bring to their spirits set them apart in taste and substance from the mass produced counterparts that are available everywhere else. Shot and Bottle is thrilled to introduce innovative cocktails that center around these products, and a full menu that promises

an upscale twist on some Pennsylvania Dutch favorites (you know you’re dying to try the chicken pot pie gnocchi). Lancaster is in for a treat! “I think a lot of people are going to be surprised by the variety of products that are made in PA and are now available to them at Shot and Bottle. We’re excited to make that introduction.” Shot and Bottle’s doors are open from 11 am – 11 pm seven days a week. Stop by and discover the come-as-you are vibe, indulge in the delicious menu, and, of course, cheers to the incredible assortment of locally sourced spirits, beer, and wine.

“We are always so impressed with projects and techniques that are worked on in class. Both girls not only always have fun, they learn a lot. They can point out paintings and artists that they learned about at PCA&D in everyday life. I love that they get a little insight with each artist and some history behind each project. The instructors are all very talented and knowledgeable and have wonderful rapport with the kids! Thank you for putting together such a great program for the youth!”

LANCASTER

Landmarks LANCASTER’S MICRO - CAFE 40 EAST GRANT STREET The Wagner Cafe, a restaurant and billiard parlor measuring only 24 feet wide by 30 feet deep may very well have been the predecessor of the ‘micro-cafe’ in Lancaster City. In 1891, German immigrant Charles Wagner retained Lancaster’s emerging young architect C. Emlen Urban to design a cafe, boutique hotel, and entertainment emporium at 40 East Grant Street. Twenty-eight-year-old Urban selected the Romanesque Revival architectural style for his second major commission in the city. No expense was spared when it came to the use of quality building materials, design innovation, and character. The three story masonry structure features an asymmetrical tower that draws attention to the truncated corner entrance below. A twisted cast iron Byzantine column with a pillow-top capital supports the pressed brick arches and tower. Urban’s liberal use of architectural detailing and materials includes elaborate corbeling, diapering (crisscross patterns), soldier coursing, rough cut sandstone, terra cotta moldings, pyramidal roof, rounded brick piers, decorative leaded glass, and pressed tin features. Also, his confidence and ability to successfully mix flat, segmental, and full round arches in a narrow twenty-four-foot-wide facade was the preamble of things to come in his designs. Mr. Wagner sold the cafe to Mr. Frank F. Shue who operated the establishment until the late 1920s. Following the years of vacancy, the building was reclaimed and repurposed for the law offices of Goldberg & Byer and placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983. The 127-yearold-structure still stands tall today among the shadows of its towering neighbors. RLPS Architects believes in the appreciation and honoring of architecturally significant buildings in the City. Look for more lancaster landmarks in this year’s issues of Fig Lancaster and on your journeys around town!

Only the best coffee, of course. But these unique local spots are also part of a business ecosystem that’s elevating what we drink and eat while building up our community. That visionary umbrella company is Commons Company. “Lancaster has a maker culture,” says Kyle Sollenberger, co-founder and CEO of Commons Company. “You go to New York or Philly and you see the words ‘Lancastergrown’ on goods. And now, people want to see the source, which means Lancaster is a destination. That’s where our businesses come in.” Sollenberger teamed up with Commons Company co-owner Crystal Weaver in 2014. Back then, Weaver was the owner of Prince Street Cafe. Together, they brought on Passenger Coffee and moved the kitchen and roastery into a converted warehouse on East Marion Street. They’ve since built a network of ventures, employing more than 70 people. Commons Company recently became a Certified B Corporation with a commitment to providing excellent jobs for local residents (80% live within the city limits and 100% make well above Lancaster’s living wage) and focus on creating change through business and environmental initiatives. P R I N C E S T R E E T C A F E (15 North Prince Street) is the original institution under the Commons Company umbrella. It’s been Lancaster’s defacto meeting place since 2006, known for the homemade goods (especially the baked oatmeal), Passenger Coffee, and central location.

There are more than 30 coffees on the menu, some of which can’t be found anywhere else in the country because of Passenger’s innovative green coffee freezing program. B L U E L I N E C A F E (561 Old Main Drive) serves seasonal, healthy fare (think: acai bowls, artisan sandwiches, and that famous baked oatmeal) on the Franklin and Marshall campus. It’s an especially great place to spend time during the summer when college crowds dwindle, but the same exceptional service is available.

Colin, Julia & Frank

The story of Aussie and The Fox has unfolded in Lancaster as one of whimsy and wonder, celebration and community.

With the support of Frank Fox, Julia Morrell and her Australianborn husband, Colin, took a space on King Street to offer something extraordinary. With its stately sofas and sparkling chandeliers, Aussie and The Fox became the beautiful setting of our after work happy hours, anniversary dinners, date nights, and family brunch. Lancaster came with friends and family to catch up over crispy cauliflower, toast Bloody Marys, and indulge in an Aussie burger— each patron weaving themselves into the story of Aussie and The Fox, each character bringing

more life and joy into the space. The other magic that was created here was the sense of family that evolved from a group of people who worked together to make Aussie and The Fox such a big part of our community. The Aussie and the Fox staff remain key characters of this beautiful story. Julia says, “We wanted to make our mark on the Lancaster restaurant scene, to offer cuisine that was truly unique and different, and were so humbled and grateful to find ourselves changed too, gaining a forever family and incredible learning experience.” Their story took a twist when an unsolicited offer was made, and Colin, Julia, and Frank allowed themselves to imagine a new chapter. They have the opportunity to play a different

role in the community that they’ve served over the years, and to experience the Lancaster that has evolved while they were working on their contribution to the city’s story. “It wasn’t planned, but when the offer came, we realized that we were ready to close these doors and create something new—including starting a family.” The next chapter finds the main characters grateful to have been such a huge part of our lives, and excited about new travels, celebrations, and opportunities on the horizon. As for Lancaster, we raise our Mimosas and Bloody Marys in a toast, with fond memories of great food, drinks, and community. Thank you Aussie and the Fox for being such a big part of our story these five years!

Lancaster is always looking up! Intimate dinner. Happy hour. Brainstorming with colleagues. Quietly thinking through your next big project. Meeting with customers. Any gathering can be made easier and better in the right space with the right ceilings and walls—in spaces designed to accommodate and flex to the needs of the people in it. That’s what we do at Armstrong World Industries. With sustainable, acoustical, high performance ceilings and walls, we make a difference in spaces where people live, work, learn, heal, and play.

Bert’s looking up… at Armstrong acoustical ceiling panels. Do you see them? Probably not… and that’s the idea. Armstrong InvisAcoustics™ ceiling solution allows for that modern open “exposed” aesthetic, while providing acoustics to get noise under control. Perfect for restaurants and entertainment spaces.

During the design phase, Armstrong invited us to their Lancaster office to show examples of different formation designs and what they could bring to a project. We left our meeting excited about not only the fact that they are functional from an acoustical standpoint, but they added extra flair to the design that traditional options do not. adam felty

Clark & Associates Food Service Equipment, Supplies & Service

We wanted to offer live music after we opened but noticed that our space was loud due to all of the hard surfaces and lack of sound absorbing materials. With minimal impact to our business, Armstrong was able to perform acoustic testing, develop a plan, and execute it in a very short amount of time. The product works great and very few customers noticed the panels on the ceiling which helped preserve the industrial look to our shop. Most did notice the improved sound quality which has made our space even more inviting. alberto “bert” flores Bert’s Bottle Shop

GIVING BACK Making a difference in the lives of others.

Giving Back: Dan Jurman & Cheryl Holland-Jones THE MOUTH-WATERING SOUL FOOD SERVED from the Reunion Food Truck is not just feeding its patrons, it’s also feeding a deeper need in Lancaster. This soulful social enterprise and impact on wheels was cooked up through a partnership between Crispus Attucks Community Center and the Community Action Partnership of Lancaster County. Cheryl Holland-Jones, Executive Director of Crispus Attucks, and Dan Jurman, CAP CEO, are an inspiring example of what can be born when nonprofits combine forces to achieve their common goals for the community. These visionaries behind the Reunion Food Truck were determined to put

76

their heads (and resources) together to enhance their impacts on hunger and poverty in Lancaster. At the forefront, the Reunion Food Truck adds soul to the food scene in Lancaster by offering mouth-watering comfort foods like pork belly tacos, sweet potato waffle fries, and macaroni and cheese. However, Reunion is also serving up a different kind of comfort in the knowledge that as a patron of the food truck, you’re also bringing deeper comfort, hope, and opportunity to your neighbors who need it the most. Feeding the patrons of the truck is just the start. The Reunion Food Truck also

feeds a need, feeds a hope, and feeds the dreams of Lancastrians who are looking for a pathway out of poverty. The revenue from the truck will help to support and sustain the Crispus Attucks food program and will fund learning, schooling, and internship opportunities for individuals who wish to pursue a culinary career as their next step to a better situation. “This idea creates opportunity to have multiple positive outcomes out of one interaction. You eat wonderful food, help someone who is hungry to also eat, and support someone who needs a break to have the chance—that’s what Reunion food truck is,” says Dan Jurman.

West End


THE WEST END, one of Lancaster City’s most historically coveted neighborhoods, has it all—oldworld elegance, flowering trees, and a picture-perfect parkside location. It’s almost entirely residential, with a great mixture of historic mansions, charming row houses, and unique, tucked-away homes on two square miles of quiet streets. Gil Lyons, realtor with RE/MAX Pinnacle, grew up in the West End. His favorite block is a hidden stretch of Virginia Ave. lined with beautiful gardens. “Many of the residents moving into the West End today are young families who love the walking distance to the New School and plethora of outdoor activities for children and canines at the park,” says Lyons. Buchanan Park is home to a stateof-the-art dog park, where amblers can watch dogs and owners coming and going all weekend long. The park is also home to a giant playground, the city’s premier sledding hill, and community gardens. Buchanan Park hosts many citywide events, including a regular outdoor movie series, a carnival, and professional biking races. On the hottest days, little ones enjoy a wading pool that’s emptied and refilled by the Parks Department daily in summer. For West End resident Mike Schmelder, who lives in a townhome on Buchanan Avenue with his wife, Bernadette, school-age son, and Boston terrier, the neighborhood is the perfect spot. “We have this huge

park across the street where we go to play football or lacrosse, or take our dog to play in a lavish dog park with his own friends,” he says. Locals know that summer is the best time to walk across Buchanan Park to College Row on Franklin and Marshall’s campus. The outdoor patio at Blue Line Cafe (561 Old Main Dr.) is the perfect place to extend a day spent at the park over fresh local fare. Residents can walk through the park to The North Museum (400 College Ave.), a science museum with its own planetarium and a lower level full of cabinet curiosities to delight young and old discoverers. While enjoying a West End walk, visit the Little Free Library located on West End Avenue to find or share a favorite book. Most West End homes have porches decorated like an extension of the home; you’ll see reading lamps, chandeliers, ceiling fans, rugs, and cozy nooks where residents gather well into the evening hours. “As soon as we get home from work, my wife and I immediately sit out on the porch,” says Schmelder. “It provides an interesting contrast to neighborhoods where people generally stay in the backyard. Here, it’s a more social thing because we all end up relaxing and socializing among our neighbors out on our porches.” There’s something for everyone in the West End. Homes here come in a surprising variety of styles and price points, and a welcoming neighborhood porch culture awaits.

Children of all ages are welcome to use the wading pool, but children under 5 must have a parent or guardian in the water with them. Each playground has one supervisor and up to five playground leaders, as well as volunteer junior playground leaders. A Lancaster Rec supervisor visits each playground at least once a day.

AUTHENTIC Leading the way through innovation and example.

Authentic: Warden Cheryl Steberger “ T H I S WO R K I S R E WA R D I N G because of the people that I meet, the families that I help, and the hope that we give.” Cheryl Steberger, Lancaster County Prison Warden, started as a Correctional Officer 23 years ago, moved onto Sergeant, Lieutenant, Major, and then finally Prison Warden in 2016. “We are like a family here,” said Cheryl. “The communication with that staff is very transparent. Everyone deserves to know what’s going on and that establishes real trust.” Cheryl is the first woman to be warden at the Lancaster County Prison, something she is truly excited to use as inspiration.

“Being Prison Warden has allowed me to be a role model for not only the other female staff working in the correctional field, but also for the women who are incarcerated.” Since becoming Warden, Cheryl has been hard at work implementing effective new initiatives at the prison. “We have a society reentry roadmap to success,” added Cheryl. “The program for reentry into the community is crucial, and it’s important to continue that progress.” Cheryl hopes people can learn to refrain from generalizations and negative stigmas regarding corrections and the population within the prison.

“There is a negative stigma when it comes to those suffering from addiction,” said Cheryl. “By educating yourself, you begin to understand the hardship and the stories behind it. It’s a struggle we need to come alongside and help end.” She is also very proud of the team at the prison. “There are many who dedicate their lives to protect and serve the public,” added Cheryl. “They are true professionals that deserve respect.” As for what motivates her personally and professionally, Cheryl shared her life mantra. “I follow the Golden Rule—treat others how you want to be treated.”

HELPING LUISA HELP OTHERS. Luisa Tapia came to Tabor Community Services with a simple dream: to start a fair trade business with social enterprise that supported families in her hometown of Lima, Peru. But first, she had to get out of debt and prepare herself financially for the future. Luisa worked with counselors at Tabor’s Ann B. Barshinger Financial Empowerment Center

I T ’ S H A R D T O B E L I E V E T WO Y E A R S H AV E A L R E A DY PA S S E D since Water Street Mission’s dining hall was completely transformed. On February 29, 2016, the first swing of the sledgehammers began—marking the beginning of Mission Makeover. With the 24-hour help of the Lancaster community, the six-week, 5,700 squarefoot renovation was completed in just seven days. Led by Clark Food Service Equipment, Warfel Construction, Haller Enterprises,

and RLPS Architects, teams of subcontractors, churches, businesses, and individuals provided their time, talents, and financial support so that Water Street’s guests would be able to enjoy great food in a café-style setting that communicates dignity and fosters connection. One of Water Street’s guests, 8-year-old Tanya, remarked, “It’s like a restaurant. I love coming here with my momma and sister.” Her mother, Daysie, added, “We weren’t here when they fixed up the dining hall, but we’ve heard the stories

about everyone who helped. It’s amazing the way people in Lancaster County give to help others—those they don’t even know. That kind of love gives me hope.” With ongoing support from its Lancaster County community, Water Street Mission continues to provide an environment of hope, healing, and restoration for the most at-risk among us.

Social mission AT F I G , we believe in the power of a community that works together to identify needs and find solutions—one that creates connections and is passionate about helping its neighbors. Because of this, the Fig Social Mission Program began. Each year Fig partners with a non-profit organization working to transform the community. This year we’ve partnered with Bench Mark Program as they empower youth in our community. Please join us in supporting this inspirational organization. B E N C H M A R K P R O G R A M is focused on investing in at-risk youth by providing positive, long-lasting support needed to achieve future goals and success. The program matches youth from the community with mentors who also act as trainers—teaching kids through weightlifting, exercise, academic counseling, and career development. The guidance these mentors give provides sustainable leadership training and growth. The program was started by Will Kiefer when he was a senior at Franklin & Marshall College. He has since grown the program, continuing to provide a unique take on how to cultivate youth in the community. Future goals include expanding fundraising opportunities for the organization and further building their women’s program. Find out even more on Benchmarkprogram.org and explore the incredible impact this organization is making in the Lancaster community.

As far as his personal mantra, he noted that “it’s not about falling, it’s about how you get up. Do your best, and always have humility.”
