During his seven years in the Air Force, Shawn Moyer’s travels around the globe introduced him to numerous regional cuisines. He drew on his knowledge of different cultures while training at the York Career Institute, where he worked with many European- and French-trained chefs before being hired as Nikos’ executive chef. He’s been there ever since, concocting seasonal menus of modern American cuisine such as certified Angus beef burgers and his winter specialty snowflake au jus.
Along with his culinary crew, Executive Chef Shawn makes nearly every dish from scratch, using local ingredients such as poultry from neighboring Mennonite and Amish farms. His dishes are served in a sumptuous dining room with exposed brick walls, hardwood floors, and opulent flower arrangements. After dinner, visitors can light up a stogie on the patio of the Silver Star Cigar Lounge or watch flat-screen TVs at the bar.
Using nourishing minerals and herbs, mud, seaweed, and dead sea salt, the beauty experts at Cooper Spa pamper clients with time-tested, natural ingredients; but they’ll also turn to advanced technology when they need to, gently sloughing off dead skin with microdermabrasion tools, swiping glycolic acid onto faces to fade blemishes, and directing microcurrents into skin to firm muscles. Many treatments already include add-ons: hot-stone massages are enhanced with hand exfoliations, eye treatments, and foot soaks complete with rubber duckies, and aromatherapy enhances Swedish kneads and body wraps.
In the evening, Kugo Steakhouse & Sushi Bar's chefs fire up their hibachi grills and begin to slice chicken and juggle seafood with panache, as nearby sushi chefs wrap fresh ingredients into tasty rolls. Noontime diners can opt for teriyaki lunchboxes or specials that include two or three sushi rolls.
Allen Theatre, named one of Moviefone's 12 best local theaters in America in 2010, regales moviegoers with first-run Hollywood features and independent films from within a century-old building festooned with vintage movie posters. Local art complements the theater's art-deco style, which adds a classic feel to modern amenities including a Dolby Digital EX sound system, state-of-the-art projection lenses, and an advanced spoiler-alert system. Enveloped by the buttery scents that waft from a large popcorn, moviegoers will venture into the single-screen theater and feast anxious eyes on a current feature film or films of yesteryear, such as Wall Street showing November 15. Although not included with today's Groupon, viewings can be followed by a stop at MJ's Coffeehouse, where deli sandwiches, soups, and gourmet coffees help to fuel patrons and their automobiles, provided they run on gourmet coffees.
Though it is not far from either Philadelphia nor Baltimore, Cornwall feels a world away from neighboring metropolises, smack-dab in the middle of Pennsylvania Dutch Country. Just down the road from the inn, the Cornwall Iron Furnace conducts daily tours of its gothic revival buildings and original blast furnace. In the nearby city of Lancaster, Amish artisans showcase their homespun crafts at the Lancaster Quilt & Textile Museum, which boasts one of the largest collections of authentic Amish quilts anywhere. About a 25-minute drive from Cornwall, the Ephrata Cloister stands as one of America's oldest religious communities, whose original monastic structures are remarkably preserved and open to the public.
