Alburtis Tavern and Lodge, Tavern Trivia, Pub Food & Beer Pairings

Anyone looking for a friendly neighborhood pub “Where Good Friends and Good Food Meet” will not be disappointed in the Alburtis Tavern and Lodge. The railroad that brought business and prosperity to the sleepy town of Alburtis in the early 1900s runs across the street reminding diners that where they now sit was once home to The American House. Unfortunately, that original... »

Casa Toro Mexican Grill

Casa Toro Mexican Grill

My daughter Katie is a big fan of Mojito Cuba Caribe in New Hope so I was very happy to have the opportunity to review Mojito’s sister restaurant, Casa Toro Mexican Grill. Located just four miles south on Route 309 from its junction with Route 78, Casa Toro is tucked into a corner of the Fairmont Village Shopping Center in Coopersburg. Be careful – if you blink your eye, y... »

Black & Blue

Black & Blue

Across from the Courthouse in Downtown Easton sits a magical spot called Black and Blue. Co-owners Kelly-Jo Ditze (formerly of Which Brew fame) and Larry Porter (Porters’ Pub) have created an atmosphere at Black and Blue that is both creative and off-beat yet inviting in a crazy, whimsical sorta way. We arrived early on a Saturday and took a table in the dining room ... »

Copperhead Grille

Copperhead Grille

I am not usually a fan of sports bars. However, over the years, I have stopped by the Copperhead Grille on Airport Road many times. This is a convenient location with an eclectic menu and an interesting Lehigh Valley history to boot. This is NOT a sports bar chain but a family-owned and operated brand with two locations. Tom and I stopped in early on a Wednesday evening an... »

Roar Social House

Roar Social House

Some friends and I chose Roar Social House for our recent Girl’s Night Out and we had a blast. Roar is an attractive, welcoming restaurant and a unique addition to the burgeoning downtown Allentown dining scene. We sat at the bar for drinks where Danny, bartender extraordinaire, not only mixed up a wonderful Cosmo for me but a very dry Svedka Martini for Sandi and a Heming... »

Kingfish American Bistro & Wine Bar

Kingfish American Bistro & Wine Bar

Tom and I hadn’t been to Kingfish in a while so we were very happy to meet friends there for dinner recently. Mother and son co-owners Cheryl and Cale Beck (of Beck’s Land and Sea House fame) have made many changes in the last few months, which, in my opinion, have truly enhanced the ambience. We joined our friends and Kingfish “regulars” Nancy and Bob at the attractive sq... »

The Dime

The Dime

As we entered the front door of the Rennaissance Allentown Hotel, a friendly greeter led us to an elevator that would take us to the third floor. We were amazed at what we saw when the elevator doors opened. The Dime is one of the newest additions to the burgeoning Allentown restaurant scene and it is very impressive. Shiny dark floors and wooden wall accents lead to the h... »

Yianni’s Taverna

Yianni’s Taverna

We all know Yianni’s Taverna. It sits at the intersection of Seidersville Road and Old Philadelphia Pike in Bethlehem. We pass it all the time on our way to the Promenade Shops,  Stabler Arena and DeSales University or if you’re on your way from Macungie, to Downtown Bethlehem. Yianni’s Taverna has been around for awhile. Tom and I dine there from time-to-time because we l... »

The Hamilton Kitchen & Bar

The Hamilton Kitchen & Bar

“If you build it, they will come.”  That iconic line came true in the movie Field of Dreams and it appears that it is coming true in downtown Allentown with the opening of the PPL Center. Ground had barely been broken for the hockey arena when The Hamilton owner Donny Petridis signed papers for the site of his restaurant across the street. The old building had yet to be ra... »

Torre

Torre

Bienvenidos a Torre!  Torre, the newest installment in the Paxos Group of fine restaurants, opened November 13th to high expectations. And, from my dining experience, I believe those expectations have been met. Conveniently located in The Promenade Shops at Saucon Valley, Torre was the perfect place for dinner with my husband Tom after a night of shopping. Friendly mixolog... »
