I live north of the Lehigh Valley. I'm aware of the restaurants that are great in the area Sette Luna, the new Maxims 22 Bistro, bolete, Apollo Grill. Im interested in hearing about other restaurants people have found in the area. Any kind of food.
Cosmopolitan in Allentown
Molinari's on the South Side of Bethlehem
Edge in Bethlehem
River Grille or Ocean in Easton
Melt, Blue and Shula's are all pricey for the area but the atmosphere is great, the food is consistently good and the service usually above average.
I also like Sogo in Easton for Asian cuisine & Yianni's in Bethlehem for Greek - food is consistent, service can vary from good to excellent
With only two visit upon which to base a comment, we have enjoyed Melt. It is an eclectic menu, al fresco seating and good service in the Saucon Valley Shops. I would not classify Melt as great, just casually good in our experience. Our last two visit to Bolete have been hugely disappointing and we have remove it from our "when in the area" preferred list.
