Bethlehem Restaurant Week is coming!!!!

Is that your stomach growling? Then, we begin with an apology for the torture of this post which is all about food.

Have you ever made a really, really good meal? Have you ever played with food? Have you ever tried to impress your date with your culinary genius? Do you watch cooking shows? Or do you just like to be impressed with the skills of an expert cook, or seasoned chef? If you’ve answered, “yes” to any of these questions, we encourage you to check out Bethlehem’s Restaurant Week. If you do, make plans for some great meals – and go easy on the grocery list this week.

Presented by the Downtown Bethlehem Association, this week-long event features 32 (that’s right – THIRTY TWO) restaurants offering fixed menues for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

  • Breakfast price points: $5, $10
  • Lunch price points: $5, $10, $15
  • Dinner price points: $10, $20, $25, $30, $35
No passes, tickets or coupons are required. Instead, diners may simply visit their favorite participating restaurants throughout the week to enjoy the special prix fixe breakfast, lunch or dinner menus. It is strongly recommended that diners make reservations in advance. To make reservations, diners should contact the restaurants directly. This is your chance to revisit a favorite restaurant, or try a new destination. Most of the restaurants are within a reasonable walking distance from campus; some in South Bethlehem, some in Historic North Bethlehem.

But wait, there’s more! There is also a contest during Restaurant Week. You could win $2,000 of gift certificates from the participating restaurants. Each time you dine on a restaurant week menu, the server will hand you a contest slip. You can fill in up to three contest slips a day – a total of 21 entries for the week.
