Lehigh Valley Restaurant Challenge

I screwed up dinner tonight and Gibby is at class til after 10pm so I will take this opportunity to post about our self-imposed restaurant challenge.

You see, a quarterly magazine comes out in the Lehigh Valley discussing various companies, events, and restaurants. This month, it came with a supplemental magazine focused on fine dining in the area. 25 excellent restaurants, all in one place. CHALLENGE ACCEPTED.

We decided that we have to eat at all of them. You can see the information and restaurant reviews here: Lehigh Valley Good Taste.

Excitingly, we have already eaten at a few of them, and then last night, we went to Pearly Bakers with Gibby's mom. It was delicious and wonderful. So that's another one we can knock off. Not only will this challenge be exciting and delicious, it also will force us to explore other towns in our area, like Emmaus and Quakertown. That is always a plus, right?

Without further ado, here is the list that will be updated as we eat (crossed-out means we have eaten there):

Emeril's Chop House, Bethlehem, PA

I know this is super old but I just found out you have a blog about food too! Have you been to McCoole's yet in Quakertown? If not, you should go there next. It's one of our favs! And we don't like making that drive to Quakertown so that's saying a lot! :)
