Specialty beer, pastry restaurants opening in York
Two new establishments are joining the growing restaurant scene in Downtown York.
Collusion Tap Works, featuring 24 taps that will pour beer, cider, mead and sodas that all are produced on-site, is expected to open for business later today in the rear of the Bond Building, 100-110 S. Queen St.
And Pastries of France, featuring fresh breads, pastries, crafted sandwiches and specialty coffee and teas, has opened at 24 S. George St., near York’s Continental Square.
Officials from York City and the organization Downtown Inc are holding a ribbon-cutting Friday to mark the opening of Pastries of France.
Here are details on both new establishments.
Collusion is set to open at 4 p.m. Friday afternoon in a newly-renovated 4,600-square-foot location, Heather Kreiger of ROCK Commercial Real Estate said.
The specialty beer retailer will feature craft beer, craft cider and also hot and cold sandwiches, according to its webpage.
Kreiger said Collusion’s owners are Jared Chuck and Doug Barnes. Chuck is the head brewer and brings “extensive training and experience in the beer-brewing industry,” she said. He is the former head brewer at Wyndridge Farms in Dallastown.
Pastries of France
Pastries of France will include table seating for breakfast and lunch. Special orders also are available, Downtown Inc officials said.
The bakery's pastry chef, Tarik Boughelam, has years of experience creating pastries, and the menu will include sandwiches on traditional French bread, said Natalie Williams, small business liaison for Downtown Inc.
It will be open weekdays from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. and 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays, she said.
