Taste of the Town – February 26, 2014 Edition
Owned by Dave and Sadie Crills of Lancaster, even the name of the new Manheim restaurant is a family affair. The name of “Lintia” comes from their daughters’ first names— Linde and Tianna. The entire family works together on Lintia, with Sadie handling most of the baking. Many of the recipes are family recipes, and Sadie describes it as country cooking with a contemporary flair.
Some of their favorite dishes make it on the menu— like Dave’s Burger, with bacon, onions, mushrooms and Cooper Sharp cheese. The Opal wrap is a favorite of Linde and Tianna, a nice healthy wrap with chicken, mushrooms, red onion, spinach, tomato and chipotle mayo. “Along with all the country style dishes like chicken croquettes and pork tenderloin, we have healthy salads like the Southwest Fajita Salad and the Strawberry Mandarin Salad,” says Sadie.
The Crills have more than 20 years of experience in the food industry. and currently operate a cafe in a corporate building in York. When they saw that the former Central Grille was available, Dave was thrilled to open a restaurant in his Manheim hometown.
Together the Crills set out to make some cosmetic renovations to the 140 seat restaurant, including painting and artwork. Linde and Tianna selected the color scheme with soft cream and deep aubergine shades. They even did wall murals, and hope to add artwork from local artists and high school students.
