Bethlehem Restaurant Week Starts Sunday

Enjoy special menus and prices at participating restaurants through Saturday, July 2.

You can take Musikfest. I can miss Christkindlmarkt. But restaurant week? Don’t be messin’ with my restaurant week. This glorious Bethlehem tradition comes around twice a year, and everytime I feel like a kid at Christmas.

It’s a fantastic excuse to splurge and drop $30 on a decadent, three-course dinner at a posh restaurant, because really, “When else would that happen?,” you say to your friend/husband/mom/puppy.

This year’s list is bigger and better than ever, and a few new eateries have jumped on board. Welcome, Tapas on Main! Hello, Emeril’s Italian Table!

Below you’ll find a full list of participating venues as well as some scintillating menu items.

Note: Only some of the following menu item highlights will appear on the special prix fixe “restaurant week” menus. Many chefs say they have not yet chosen what will they will feature, as it depends on what fresh ingredients are available at that time. But you get the gist.

Bon appetit!
