EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED.
Excerpted from Williamsport Sun-Gazette December 2005
“Few things in life are as enjoyable as a fine meal and an exquisite bottle of wine. If you add excellent service and subtle elegance into the equation the result is Elizabeth’s An American Bistro.”
Central PA Magazine November 2005
“One of the joys of writing this column for so many years (since 1987, dear readers) is the opportunity it provides to travel the region and see, experience and enjoy the many cities, towns and villages of Central PA.
Take Lewisburg, a picturesque and charming one square-mile town of maybe 5,600 about 60 miles north of Harrisburg, It’s the county seat of Union County, home to Bucknell University and site of a lovely in-town restaurant named Elizabeth’s.
I’d heard about Elizabeth’s for some time. It’s in a cute, old mainstreet house near the town square: hardwood floors, open kitchen, friendly staff and wonderful menu. And it’s a treat.
If you have any reason to go to or near Lewisburg, or if you’re looking for a fall day-trip into the center of the state, make sure you include this elegant little dining spot in your travel plans.
The atmosphere is rural-chic mixed with city weeknight. It calls itself an ‘American Bistro.'”
Elizabeth’s is a true neighborhood bistro, complete with good, hearty food made from the freshest ingredients.
