Downtown Allentown Restaurant Week will be held through July 20, 2013. Participating restaurants include Aci Halal Turkish Restaurant, Allentown Brew Works, Bada Bingg, Bay Leaf, Cosmopolitan, Kow Thai, Mariam’s Restaurant, Pasta Alla Rosa, Sangria and Winston’s.

Diners may pick up their dining passports at participating restaurants. Diners will receive a stamp in their passport each time they dine with a participating restaurant. Once a diner has received four stamps, they may enter to win one of two downtown Allentown gift baskets by leaving their passport with one of the participating restaurants. The two gift baskets include the following: admission to the Allentown Art Museum, a gift certificate to Cosmopolitan, tickets to America On Wheels, tickets to Miller Symphony Hall, a framed 24” x 18” print by Ann Schlegal, a case of craft beer from the Allentown Brew Works, an over-night stay at the Holiday Inn with breakfast and more!

“There is such a great variety in the choices diners have in downtown Allentown,” said Meg Hill, Hamilton District Main Street Manager. “Restaurant Week serves as an opportunity for diners to experience international cuisine at special pricing.”

Downtown Allentown Restaurant Week offers something for every taste – traditional brew pub food; Mediterranean; Jamaican; Ethiopian, Asian, Turkish and more. To take a sneak peak at some of the menus, visit www.hamiltondistrictmainstreet.com. Dinner reservations are strongly recommended.
