Au Gratin Bistro Opens in Carlisle



Au Gratin Bistro recently opened up at 105 N. Hanover Street in downtown Carlisle and I stopped by yesterday for their first day of serving lunch. This restaurant describes itself as casual french cuisine and this shows on their menu. The lunch menu includes a selection of thin pizzas, salads, soups and sandwiches. A few interesting lunch menu items included the Mussels with Chorizo Sausage, Garlic, White Wine and Fresh Herbs appetizer and the Crispy Duck Leg Salad. They also offer a lunch buffet with a soup, two entrees and two side dishes. It looked tasty, but I was in more of a soup and sandwich mood.

4 Tasty Beverage Spots in Carlisle


This Saturday my husband and I headed to Carlisle for the afternoon/evening for something different to do. We ended up having a great time checking out some of Carlisle's new hotspots and old favorites. Here's the four places we visited!

1. Molly Pitcher Brewing Company -  I've been hearing a lot about this very recently opened new brewery in Carlisle. Although they still have limited hours (Tues & Thurs 3-6pm and Sat 12-6pm), it is definitely worth checking out. They offer flights, which is the best way to try out new beer and discover your favorite. They also have a small snack menu and I would recommend the Keswick Creamery cheese plate.
