Touchstone is a member of the Downtown Bethlehem Association. For more information on all that “one city, two great downtowns” has to offer click here .
For some Company Member favorites, try these places:
Hometown Heroes – They have the best hot sandwiches I’ve ever had in my life!
Goosey Gander – Great meat, creative sandwiches, Tony’s personality
Thai II – Why? Two words: drunken noodles.
Brewworks – Great beer, great service, and the best french fries in town; this is a staple of deliciousness in the Lehigh Valley.
Apollo Grill – A perfect place for date night – with a wide range of prices, a stellar menu, cute cocktails, and exquisite desserts. My favorites include the grilled cheese and short rib sandwich, any of the amazing salads, and the creme brulee of the day.
Full of Crepe – Fantastic, reasonably-priced, HUGE crepes! Yum.
Horns – Local fresh food, known for it’s amazing burgers; plus, lots of vegan and vegetarian options.
Nawab – Simply the best Indian Food around
Granny McCarthy’s Tea Room – It’s where half the Touchstone apprentices have worked over the years, and great food, ambiance. Support them!
Nuts About Ice Cream – These people are salt of the earth and their ice cream is divine. Sandwiches too.
Molinari’s – just around the corner from Touchstone and some of the best Italian food (and wine) around!
Nawab – GREAT Indian restaurant run by a GREAT family — and easy to walk to Touchstone for a show.
Jenny’s Kuali – Malaysian restaurant with the best dumplings around…And their homemade garlic sauce (ask for it if there isn’t a bottle on your table) compliments everything on the menu!
Molly’s Irish Pub – Great happy hour specials, fresh beer, good burgers, and downright respectable fish & chips.
The Mint – Not only do I work there, but the food, beer, and drinks are fantastic. The chef changes the menu seasonally, so you are insured to never have the same meal twice. Although not uber expensive, consider it a way to treat yourself after a great show. Also kitchen closes at 11 pm most nights! Think classic comfort food meets 5-star ingredients and technique, all in a casual atmosphere.
The Bookstore – Definitely if you are in the mood to treat yourself and finish the night with some flair. This restaurant models itself after a Prohibition Era speakeasy. The food is what I would call American fusion. The ambiance and 1920’s drink list are amazing. Go there Friday or Saturday night to enjoy live music.
La Lupita – Affordable, authentic, and delicious Mexican cuisine. La Lupita is a quaint BYOB restaurant across from Molly’s. The food is always great as well as the service. Perfect for an affordable after-show bite.
