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.

Midtown Tavern & Ristorante is a hidden GEM in Alpha, NJ! I just knew before I got there that it was going to be a cozy little place with a ton of great things to choose from on their menu. I don’t know why…I just did. I was right! Rosie and John own MTT but I unfortunately missed Rosie the night my wife and I were in! John however was there and the second we were introduced he became someone I could have known for 20 years! It’s always wonderful when you see the owners of an establishment in the actual buisness cooking, talking to patrons, and just giving off the vibe that their final touch is on everything! It brings it all back back to comfort food!
For starters, E and I had a mixture of homemade apps from Midtown Tavern. When I saw Fire Island Clams on the menu, I knew I had to try them. Fire?…yes please! Clams stuffed with a secret sauce, shrimp, crab, and more! I never saw it on a menu anywhere before and it was awesome! We also had their Famous Thin Crust Bar Pizza because well…it’s pizza! Good choice! They have A LOT of pizza to choose from. Take your pick! Jill suggested the Homemade Chicken Quesadillas and we were both glad she did. Leave it at that. They could be a whole meal themselves!
