Ed Diller said the fierce competition in Lancaster for restaurant customers is prompting the move to Columbia. The restaurant's last day in Lancaster will be Dec. 23.
In Columbia, Gypsy Kitchen will be the the anchor restaurant inside the historic market house where major renovations are slated to begin in January. With construction expected to last eight months, Diller said he is planning to open in late summer or early fall.
Columbia Borough is partnering with CHI St. Joseph Children's Health to revamp the Columbia Market House building and reinstate a farmers market with a restaurant.
The Gypsy Kitchen restaurant in Columbia will have seating for around 100, compared to around 60 at full capacity at the seminary.
