Black Forest Deli

Category : Bethlehem, Restaurant Reviews, The Lehigh Valley

I heard about the Black Forest Deli or BFD on Twitter from one of the other LV bloggers. He raved about the food and his back and forth tweets with the deli owner sparked my interest so I decided this was a place that needed to be tried. The deli is located at 745 7th Ave in Bethlehem, on the corner of 7th and Union, close to both Rt. 378 and Broad St. They serve a wide variety of deli foods and a good number of home-made Russian meals and have been in operation since 1997. The deli was voted best deli by the Readers Choice Awards so we set out to find out why.

I headed over with a friend on a Tuesday afternoon and found a close parking space on the street. The deli didn’t look like much from the outside but that didn’t discourage us. We walked in and were greeted by a friendly face and an overwhelming smell of pure deliciousness. It smelled like home. Continue Reading

Category : Bethlehem, Restaurant Reviews, The Lehigh Valley

BAM! So, that’s the trademarked slang that Emeril uses when creating his culinary masterpieces. And, since Emeril is no stranger to perfection, he has opened yet another great venue for eating and imbibing signature eats and drinks in the Lehigh Valley.

Emeril’s Italian Table, opening June 4th 2011, boasts an intricate old world Italian menu and a contemporary Italian vibe. Stone walls, dark woods, and deep colors. Front of the restaurant has a lively character as there is a bar fully stocked with rare Italian reds and whites, and a varied drink menu for the risk takers. And, next to that is an Italian specialty “meat” bar. Yes, a meat bar. You can sit and watch the professional chef’s slice cured hams and sopressata in front of your very eyes! And, then there’s the romantic and quiet back of restaurant, perfectly ambient for dates, family dinners, or business meetings.

The Farmhouse


Category : Emmaus, Pennsylvania, Restaurant Reviews, The Lehigh Valley

I’ve always heard of the legendary Farmhouse Restaurant in Emmaus, PA, over the past ten years and when I dined there recently, I wanted to kick myself for not ever trying this establishment years earlier! The Farmhouse, for those of you who do not know, is located  on Chestnut Street in Emmaus on the same piece of land that used to be home to Indian Creek Golf Club. You literally take Cedar Crest Boulevard to the end of the line into Emmaus, turn right, and it’s a few hundred yards on your right hand side.

The Farmhouse is an original home built  in the 18th century and pretty much ALL of the original home still stands and it is breathtaking as you walk around the 3 level restaurant. The basement leads out to an outdoor dining patio and also located in the lower level is an English Style Pub that is one of the quaintest bars I’ve ever seen. Michelle, co-owner of The Farmhouse has built a wine and beer list better than ANY restaurant I honestly have EVER been to. I’m not talking about just a lot of drinks, I’m talking about the quality and variety of drinks from all over Europe and the world that you can’t even get anywhere else! Our waiter, Greg honestly knows more about wine then anyone I’ve ever met at a restaurant. He is a great server and just a master of knowledge when it comes to the drink list! I highly recommend asking for him when you go!

Souper Bowl II – Lehigh Valley Soup Contest


Category : Bethlehem, Food News, Miscellaneous, Restaurant Reviews, The Lehigh Valley

The Souper Bowl II is January 29th! It WILL sell out in advance. Held 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Banana Factory in Bethlehem, the Souper Bowl will feature area restaurants competing to see who can create the tastiest liquid lunch. We attended this last year and it was nothing short of amazing! Tons of vendors, and all had fantastic creations that you could sample until your heart (and stomach) were content!

The concept of  S.O.B.  is pretty basic: Buy a ticket, taste a variety of soups and vote for your favorites. Come hungry because there is a lot of tasty treats to indulge in!

Last year, 20 eateries competed in six different categories: cream, ethnic, chowder, meat, vegetarian and unique. Judges picked the best in each category and fans in attendance decided on the People’s Choice winner. Hampton Winds won the People’s Choice Award last year with its roasted butternut squash with apple sage ravioli and cardamom cream.

Some participating spots in 2010 included Blue Sky Cafe, Hampton Winds, Tally-Ho, Sagra Cooking and Yianni’s Taverna. The event will be hosted by radio station 100.7 WLEV’s own Mark Shepperd and The “Gourmet Guy” will be one of the judges! Continue Reading

Bethlehem Awards Restaurant Economic Development Grant

Category : Bethlehem, Food News, Pennsylvania, Restaurant Reviews, The Lehigh Valley

A big congrats to our good friends at MINT.  The Lombardo family came to the city of Bethlehem, PA in 1982 and since then they have been nothing short of a FANTASTIC addition to this amazing Christmas City. Below, is an article that posted in regards to a recent economic development grant they received from the City of Bethlehem  to make a positive dent in Bethlehem’s economic growth! Look for MINT to open later this year on West Broad Street in Bethlehem, PA. Congratulations!

“Liquor licenses aren’t easy to get. Especially in cities that are kinda overrun with bars already (See: Bethlehem, Pa). And, if you’re lucky enough to be able to get one, be ready to pay a king’s ransom in order to do so.

(Side note: Always wanted to use the phrase “a king’s ransom” in context and I did. 2011 resolution #1 is done!)

This is the reason you see a lot of new restaurants opening up and offering BYOB. Sure, it’s OK and all bringing in your wine like you’re going on a picnic, but if you really want to attract a crowd that has any sort of sophistication you need to have a wine list and some sweet martinis. Am I right?

Anyway, The owners of Stefano’s are opening up a bistro in the former Bank of America Building in West Bethlehem on Broad Street and they got the deal of a lifetime to serve you alcohol. (source)

After turning down two in 2005, city council on Tuesday approved a rare economic development liquor license for a new restaurant in West Bethlehem.

The two previous applications faced opposition from other restaurateurs in the Center City and South Side business districts, but Tuesday’s application to grant the license to a building at 1233 W. Broad St. received nothing but support.

Restaurateurs Stefano and Dominic Lombardo, who also own Stefano’s Restaurant on Linden Street, said the fiercely competitive market for liquor licenses in Lehigh County made it impossible for them to afford a traditional liquor license. Economic development licenses, which also need state approval, can only be granted once all reasonable means to obtain a traditional liquor license have been exhausted.

The Lombardos plan to renovate a former Bank of America building into a contemporary bistro called The Mint. The family had planned to spend $80,000 on a liquor license but found liquor licenses in Lehigh County were going for at least double that, said Jim Scants, a legislative aide to state Sen. Lisa Osceola, D-Northampton/Lehigh/Monroe, who represented the family before city council.

While Northampton County has 26 available liquor licenses, Lehigh County only has three, making them sell at a premium amount, Schantz said.

Economic development liquor licenses cost only $50,000, an amount some Bethlehem restaurateurs called unfair when the Sun Inn and Starters Riverport applied for them in 2005. Starters Riverport later got a transferred liquor license from Pen Argyl. Source

Sweet deal for them. I’m sure some people are going to bitch (See BYOB Main Street restaurants Olio and Mama Nina). But, you know what kids? Sometimes it takes a little bit of maneuvering to get what you want.

These guys are my heroes. ”

Thanks LVWL for the article!
