House & Barn

House & Barn

“Have you tried House & Barn yet?” has worked its way into regular rotation on my list of small talk topics, less as a conversational filler and more as a civic duty. Hyperbolic, perhaps, but unnecessary, no. (Let it be known that I am on a mission to have as many people try the Barn B Q Nachos as possible.) When I think of House & Barn, I think of Thanksgiving din... »

The Brick

The Brick

If you were a tourist wandering around Bethlehem, your first thought might be that we’re really obsessed with stars. Your second thought, though, might be that there are a lot of Italian eateries and pizza parlors here. From big names at The Sands and mom-and-pop spots in the townships to downtown mainstays and corner carry-outs, there is no shortage of them. Is there room... »

2017 is an interesting time to be a foodie. Perhaps by popular demand, buzzwords like “artisanal” and “local” have slowly infiltrated almost every menu. Gluten-free options are plentiful, vegan versions are expected, and organic materials are sprinkled across ingredient lists. Portions are often smaller, poetic in composition—with thought given to qualities previously rese... »

Tequila House Fiesta Ole

Tequila House Fiesta Ole

At 8:30 p.m. on a Saturday night, Fiesta Ole Tequila House was lively—not noisy. There’s a difference. I’ve been to a lot of those restaurants, the noisy ones—the ones where you can hear the third-date couple’s cooing banter in the booth to your right and the uncle at the head of the table to your left with a fifth-grader’s interpretation of the cue “use your inside voice”... »

My husband Tom and I recently spent a delightful evening enjoying French-inspired cuisine at 187 Rue Principale in charming downtown Emmaus.

In true French fashion, tipping is not allowed—employees are paid a fair wage.  Owner Mitzi Cullen celebrated the ... »

Glasbern Inn

Glasbern Inn

Located a few miles off Route 100 North, nestled among the rolling hills in Fogelsville is Glasbern Inn, a multifaceted historical inn situated on over 130 acres of working farmland. Dreams of the inn began in 1983 when Al and Beth Granger purchased 16 acres of rustic farmland and “tired” old buildings. With comprehensive renovations and additional land purchases over time... »
