rehearsal dinner in Lehigh Valley?

Can anyone recommend a good restaurant for a rehearsal dinner in the Lehigh Valley--we are thinking approx. 35 people will be in attendance, so a private room would be nice, but wouldn't be required, I suppose? Like everyone, we are on a budget, but good food is important to us. Doesn't have to be fancy, just delicious!

  1. Bolete now has it's covered back patio open for private events. I believe they can accomodate up to 40 or 50 people, and the food is just exquisite. Sagra Bistro in Hellertown has a private room upstairs, not sure how many it can accomodate, but their food is approachable, quite tasty and well priced. Edge also has a private room and I believe they can do parties of about 30 or 40. They also have an outdoor patio, which you could also use. Delicious food - doesn't get the credit that it should. Then there's always the Sayre Mansion, which is such a pretty place, and lovely rooms for guests to stay in, and a beautiful tented patio, but you have to use their caterer. The Sun Inn in downtown Bethlehem is now used just for events like this (no longer a full time restaurant) and they have a chef doing the catering there that's got some mad skills. He used to be at the Farmhouse in Emmaus until very recently. His name might be Mark.

      Thank you so much. Since this is in a couple months, the weather might be too cold for outside, but we'll look into the indoor options you mentioned.

    2. Bogle, great suggestions. I'd add Club at Morgan Hill in Easton, the Farmhouse in Emmaus (their "barn" is divine), Edge in Bethlehem, or Cosmopolitan in Allentown. All have private spaces that would suit your group.
