It’s that time of the year again in Bethlehem, PA. That’s right, it’s restaurant week. The week where Bethlehem’s Historic District restaurants offer a prix fixe lunch or dinner for a very reasonable price. The week also known to food enthusiast as one of the best weeks of the year!
This past summer, Briana and I participated in Restaurant Week by dinning at Tapas on Main. We enjoyed our prix fixe lunch (along with delicious sangrias) outside under the summer sun. Although dining outside was fun, Restaurant Week during the winter is even more fun, giving you a perfect reason to leave the house. The only hard part? Figuring out which of the 13 restaurants to dine at.
Hosted by the Downtown Bethlehem Association (DBA), participating restaurants include 1741 on the Terrace, Apollo Grill, Artisan Wine & Cheese Cellars, Bethlehem Brew Works, The Brick, Edge Restaurant, The Melting Pot, McCarthy’s Red Stag Pub and Whiskey Bar, Tapas on Main, Tap Room at Historic Hotel Bethlehem, Twisted Olive, and The Wooden Match. Also on the participating list this year, the Colony Meadery at the Moravian Book Shop. The meadery will be offering visitors a mead (think honey-flavored wine-ish) and food pairing.
Participation in Restaurant Week is easy! No need for a pre-purchased ticket. Just choose a restaurant and pick from the prix fixe menu. Although not required, a reservation is strongly encouraged. As you could imagine, this is an especially busy time of the year for these Bethlehem restaurants. Bethlehem’s 2016 Winter Restaurant Week runs from January 24 to January 30.
