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”... »

187 Rue Principale

187 Rue Principale

My husband Tom and I recently spent a delightful evening enjoying French-inspired cuisine at 187 Rue Principale in charming downtown Emmaus. This unique spot serves brunch during the day; at night, it transforms into a cozy bistro that serves intimate dinners. In true French fashion, tipping is not allowed—employees are paid a fair wage.  Owner Mitzi Cullen celebrated the ... »

Joey G’s Italian Kitchen

Joey G’s Italian Kitchen

There is a new kid on the block or, I should say, on Grape Street. Joey Grisafi (owner of Corked Wine Bar in Bethlehem) opened Joey G’s Italian Kitchen in June. Joey G’s is very casual but a big step up from a walk-in pizzeria where Joey says you will find “No Bada, No Bing – just great Italian food”. The aroma of garlic whets your appetite as soon as you walk in the door ... »

Tom and I stopped in a couple of weeks ago for dinner on a Friday night. The place was filling up when we arrived at 6:30. We sat at the unique, piano key motif bar for a drink and listened to some pretty special piano a... »
