One of the newest eateries to come to Lancaster is Harvest Seasonal Grill & Wine Bar, which opened in November 2018. The restaurant’s motto is “Healthy Indulgence,” and its menu reflects that, serving sustainable, health-conscious and locally sourced cuisine.
Harvest’s CEO Dr. Dave Magrogan saw the need for high-quality, farm-fresh food that offered a variety of dining options not usually found in traditional farm-to-table restaurants. Harvest supports the philosophy of “know your farmer, know your food,” which is why the restaurant works closely with 75 local farmers, including food sourced through Lancaster Farm Fresh Co-op.
Most of the seasonal menu offerings include dishes under 500 calories and non-GMO. The restaurant is also proud to offer vegetarian, gluten-free and vegan items. Harvest also features a progressive wine list with over 50 wines by the glass – many of which are certified sustainable – local craft beer and seasonally inspired cocktails. Guests may also opt for beer, wine or sangria flights.
And although menu offerings change seasonally, one popular item that’s on nearly every menu is the spicy shrimp noodle bowl. Other menu staples include filet, salmon and scallops. Butternut squash soup and butternut squash dip, served warm with rye crostini, have become Harvest’s signature items; however, they’re only available on the fall and winter menus. Harvest also offers special wine and bourbon dinners.
