Allentown client dinner
We arrive Monday night, and I am in charge of finding a place for dinner for 3 of us plus 2 clients.
We are looking for something nice, but not too fancy. Everyone will have been traveling all day and tired.
Unless you know the clients well enough to know food preferences (and dislikes), you might want to consider the Federal Grill, 536 Hamilton Avenue. I have been there a couple of times and would rate it as a good restaurant. I have seen other boards where CHs have recommended Federal Grill for similar situations. Its Web site is http://federalgrill.com , I believe.
I haven't been in a number of years, but the Bay Leaf used to be a reliable stand-by. The atmosphere is decent for a business dinner, but not over the top fancy either.
When I'm in that area, I prefer downtown Bethlehem for dinner. It's close and has a quaint little district with several restaurants. There's a very good micro-brew place there called Bethlehem Brew Works on Main Street and across the street (sort of) on Broad, is a more upscale place called Apollo Grill. Very good food, nice bar and atmosphere.
