Cosmopolitan

Category : Allentown, Drink Reviews, Pennsylvania, Restaurant Reviews, The Lehigh Valley

Downtown Allentown is full of rich history, a ton of character, and is becoming more alive each day! One such establishment thathas breathed massive amounts of life into the great city of Allentown is Cosmopolitan located at 22 N. Sixth Street directly across from Allentown Symphony Hall.  When you pull up to the COMPLIMENTARY valet parking they have daily for lunch and dinner, you instantly look at the marquee and say “Wow! Really? What could I possibly be in for?”

TRUST me, you have NO idea. If you ever wanted to take your loved one/s out for a dinner that they would talk about for years or a date to someplace that score you MAJOR points… Cosmopolitan is the place. The second you walk through the door that is opened by a courteous Cosmopolitan Greeter, you instantly are taken back and witness a dining establishment you would see only in the biggest cities and finest casinos in the world.

We started off at Cosmo’s incredible bar that is back lit with a black backdrop and what looks to be white fiber-optic lights making it a very romantic/cozy place to sit with a date and get to know each other or talk amongst friends! We did just that! Jim Fortunato, General Manager of Cosmopolitan was there to greet us at the bar when we arrived and our 10 minute introduction turned into a 90 minute conversation about everything and anything! (Mostly about Napa, Wine, the June 10th opening of the outdoor rooftop Sky Lounge, and his son’s birthday party coming up)! Jim has opened up several amazing establishments including some here in the Lehigh Valley so he really knew how to make it work from the ground up from everything  involving food, to décor, right down to the amazing staff!  We enjoyed some fantastic wine including Molly Dooker which I really recommend and a Cherry Sidecar, Pomona, and Cosmo’s Signature Blood Orange which is Grey Goose L ‘orange, Fresh –Squeezed Lime, Triple Sec, and Fresh Squeezed Blood Orange! Thanks Amber and Gloria at the bar for the AWESOME Cocktails!

After a great time with our friends, we sat for dinner and immediately were told by our server, NINO (who is amazing), that our first course was being hand-picked by Jim and the chef! When we were taking a tour of the Sky Lounge before dark, Jim kept talking about the Handmade Goat Cheese Gnocchi with Smokey Braised Short Rib… so obviously my mouth was watering and he knew that HAD to be part of the appetizers for us. We also enjoyed Maple Caramelized Scallops with Curried Lentils in a Garlic Herb Broth.  To round out our appetizers we sampled Cosmopolitan’s Tuna Tartare drenched with  Olives, Caper Berries, Chickpea Fritter, and Yogurt Cucumber Dressing! YES I’LL TAKE ANOTHER!

For our main course, it was a menu of tough choices as we wanted EVERYTHING but we had to settle!  I enjoyed an Aged NY StripSteak with Smokey Bourbon Barbeque Glazed Short Ribs and Roasted Fingerling Potatoes.  We also sampled and shared some of the other entrees and why wouldn’t I considering my buddy got Steamed Australian Lobster Tail with Seasonal Vegetables, a Baked Potato, and Drawn Butter! So Sweet in taste and I’ve never even seen Australian Lobster on a menu before! Well done Cosmo! My wife enjoyed Roasted Duck Breast cooked PERFECTLY along with Duck Scrapple (another first), Brussels Sprouts, and Buttery Chestnut Puree!

For Dessert we kept it light except for our guests, lol! They enjoyed Home Made Carrot Cake with Roasted Pecans, and Savory CARROT Sorbet! Yes, CARROT Sorbet! Top that off with a few after dinner cocktails such as  the B-52 (Bailey’s, Kahlua &, Grand Marnier on the Rocks), The Uptown Alexander (Bourbon, Rum, Dark Crème de Cacao, and Half & Half), and Grandma’s Tea (Grand Marnier in Hot Orange Spiced Tea) and you’ve got yourself one of the BEST MEALS you will EVER have! Dinner at Cosmopolitan!

Thank you Jim, Nino, Amber, Gloria, and everyone in the back of the house at Cosmopolitan! You will see us a LOT!

*On a side note, every Wednesday is a Pre-Fix menu at Cosmopolitan if you really want the experience at a GREAT price! Thursdays is bottles of wine are half price! Every bottle! AND, The SKY LOUNGE is now open on the roof! A two tier outdoor party everynight with Live DJ’s, food, drinks, and more! Definitely check it out!
