Will be spending one night in this area on a road trip. Looking for a great local place. Can be anything from road food to fine dining.

    If I only had one night it would be one of these 4
    Bolete - Bethlehem
    Savory Grille - Seisholtzville
    Farmhouse - Emmaus
    Glasbern Inn - Fogelsville
    There are many more great restaurants (nearly all cuisines), brewpubs and gastropubs that I could recommend depending on where in the Lehigh Valley you are staying, if you want something close to where you are staying and what kind of cuisine, wine or beer you prefer.

          Several suggestions.
          There are some good restaurants in Easton proper.
          Sette Luna is a good Italian bistro .
          River Grille is upscale continental type cuisine.
          Porters Pub is a rustic pub with a very good beer selection and good pub food.
          Two extremely local places.
          Uncle Wesleys at llth and Bushkill, looks like a 1950's rec room. Very good deviled crab. The burgers and fries are also superb. They will not bring you a check .You pay at the bar.There is a good review (and pictures) at eatingteam.net
          Jimmy's at the 25th street shopping center is regionally famous. Very limited menu- hot dogs and potato chips. A hot dog with everything (mustard onions pickle slice) is still under a dollar. No seating. Jimmys is listed on Roadfood.com

        Glasbern Inn is nothing special - yes, they have locally raised/sourced food, but the menu is unimaginative and the preparation was just OK. For a great lunch, Tulum in Bethlehem has fantastic burritos and they make their own hot sauces.
