Hello Summer!

This vibrant, colorful season lures us outdoors—whether picking ripe tomatoes from the backyard garden or exploring the numerous patio options proffered by Lehigh Valley restaurants. Of course, an air-conditioned dining room offers its own cool, comfy charms.

Fresh produce inspires chefs to experiment with new tastes, while still supplying the core, crave-worthy dishes that never go out of style—though they may get flavorful twists and tweaks. (Yes, we’re talking about you, pizza, nachos, and wings.) While steak remains a perennial eating-out favorite, the area restaurant scene embraces vegetarian, pescatarian, and vegan cuisine. Gluten-free selections are also available at many destinations. A checklist at the bottom of profile pages makes it easy to spot the amenities desired.

At this time of year, thirst quenchers are naturally in high demand. Whether your preference is for a crisply refreshing glass of sauvignon blanc or a local state-of-the-brewing-art beer, restaurants and taverns are ready to fill your order. Expert mixologists are also crafting innovative and classic cocktails, and some of their tastiest libations appear in the recipe section.

You may note the addition of a Happy Healthy Local department in Good Taste. This carryover from Lehigh Valley Marketplace magazine, presented in partnership with St. Luke’s, underscores the vital importance of health and wellness—which ties in with our mission of presenting great dining choices and recipes ready to jump from page to plate.
