Named in honor of co-owner Anthony Morgan's family crest, Black Gryphon welcomes Italian, American, and Welsh cuisine into its repertoire, a combination that earned top casual-dining and international honors in Central PA Magazine's 26th Annual Readers' Choice Survey in 2010. Though the restaurant's menu, like the seasons before the invention of autumn, changes three times a year, its culinary team consistently honors the Welsh tradition of cooking with local produce and products. Chefs incorporate ingredients culled from in state, ranging from potatoes grown at Sterman Masser Potato Farms and tempuras concocted with Yuengling lager into the eatery's small plates and mains. Meanwhile, guests feast in a dining room decorated with artwork by local photographer Danielle M. Bostic, and a banquet room accommodates up to 50 attendees for private meals. Along with delectable fare, Black Gryphon enchants visitors with entertaining events throughout the year, including live music, comedy nights, art auctions, and murder-mystery theater shows.
Inspired by time spent in Germany, where massage plays an integral role in healthcare, licensed practical nurse and massage therapist Leisa Leber has made it her mission to promote wellness with the healing power of touch. Leber has used massage to help both nursing patients and family members, and went on to study Swedish, neuromuscular, and deep-tissue modalities at the Colorado Institute of Massage Therapy. She continued her training at Upledger Institute International, adding lymphatic drainage and craniosacral therapy to her manual repertoire. To stay informed, Leber maintains membership with the Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals and the International Association of Healthcare Practitioners, having learned the elaborate, reflexology-based secret handshake required for participation.
Leber enhances the many benefits of treatment with soft music, paraben-free aromatherapy oils, or soothing paraffin wax. Entrance ramps accommodate walkers or wheelchairs, and a walking path next to the studio invites patrons to explore the tranquility of nature with newly limber muscles.
A web of scrolls, acanthus leaves, and flowers weaves its way around a polished metal serving tray, encircling edibles with an intricately wrought border. This baroque pattern dates back to the 17th century, when Parisian silversmiths created the design for Queen Mary. This motif has since been revived by sculptor Stan Baskett, one of Wilton Armetale Factory Store's cadre of skilled designers. Like many of the pieces in Wilton Armetale’s serveware collection, the designs are rooted in history but have been updated and streamlined for daily use.
Even though the shop's pieces are ornate, they never sacrifice durability. This nontoxic serveware and grillware is oven- and freezer-safe and sturdy enough for cooking, baking, and grilling. The metal workers also vow that their pieces will not rust, break, chip, or heckle you as they usher meals from the kitchen to the table.
Built in 1764, The Franklin House has surrounds guests with time-tested elegance complementing a menu of classic American comfort and upscale seasonal dishes. As the building has seen the ages pass, its customers continue to take advantage of its spoils as they eat in the dining room or out on the balcony. These days, guests may be found savoring blackened mahi-mahi salad while dining companions try to fit the provolone- and bacon-layered Franklin club sandwich into their own cheeks. A half-pound of Black Angus comprises the unique foot-long Frankie dog, which chefs heap with chili and cheese, and mussel and steamer dishes top tongues with fresh nautical morsels.
