The Wine Guy

Tracey, living here in the midstate I'm curious to read what restaurants folks suggest, for those couple times when we're over in your area. But the Restaurant Week theme is a great way to get into places where maybe the price kept you from heading in for a meal. During the years I worked in Philly, they began a bi-annual Restaurant Week that included 40 or 50 city restaurants; I think we wound up going to 7 or 8 of them only because of the promotion. And we found some great eateries that we have since revisited. Good luck to the Promenade Shops at Saucon Valley with this first-ever Restaurant Week. Great idea.


I'm looking forward to our outing next week to Melt for lunch. I would also like to go to Shula's but since Don doesn't eat meat, and they are only open for dinner, that's not gonna happen anytime soon. I have enjoyed White Orchid every time I've been there and they are a BYOB! (There ya go, Wine Guy!) I'm hungry!


dining on a budget in the lehigh valley is most easily accomplished at Allentown's MANY great ethnic eateries. chorizo tacos at la placita, malaysian night at house of chen (this friday, february 20!), shrimp pad thai at kow thai, the list goes on!


I agree with A-towner, there are a lot of affordable ethnic eateries in Allentown. I've mentioned it before, but one of my favorite, tasty deals is a $5 Cuban sandwich and fries at Las Palmas at 10th and Turner. Yes, that was FIVE dollars.


Love the idea of a Restaurant Week promo but...on a budget at the Promenade? I'd choose the deli (the Pita Pit, I think it's called) for lunch or dinner. Great, fresh sandwiches! Dessert at either Maggie Moos or Barnes & Noble. Fragrant coffee & cheesecake surrounded by all those books!

In general, we're switching our dining out from dinners to breakfasts. Breakfast is a lot cheaper and a nice start to the day.
