A new seafood and jazz restaurant opened in York on Friday night. Tanzania opened to sell out crowds. People came from Baltimore, Harrisburg, Lancaster and York to experience this funky new eatery. Unfortunately, some had to be turned away.
The restaurant is located at 29 E. Princess Street in downtown York. The menu selections are named after Jazz legends like Ella Fitzgerald. Great food, music and some original art can be expected from diners who visit the restaurant.
The Kirklands opened their restaurant because they have a love for seafood and enjoy preparing it for people. Their renovated downtown building features three dining areas named after port cities in Tanzania: Dar es Salaam, Tanga and Zanzibar.
The restaurant features some non-seafood dishes for landlubbers and don’t forget to save room for dessert.
Future plans call for adding a deck for al fresco dining and live performances by jazz musicians.
Hours are Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 5 p.m. – 11 p.m.
