Romance/Getaway Series - Hotel Bethlehem

Restored to its original 1922 grandeur, Historic Hotel Bethlehem's floor-to-ceiling palladium windows provide dramatic views of the historic shopping district just outside our front doors. Seven large murals were painted by George Gray in 1937 to depict the history of Bethlehem. These beautiful murals currently adorn the walls of the Mural Ballroom.  While I didn't stay here, it looked beautiful and luxurious, just from the lobby and downstairs parlor.

Inside Hotel Bethlehem is a beautiful restaurant called 1741 on the Terrace. The atmosphere is elegant, while being warm and inviting. Patrons can admire the charming downtown of Bethlehem with buildings and history dating back to the day in 1741 when the town itself was founded while dining. On the menu are a wide variety of items such as lamb, fresh fish, scallops, shrimp, steak and much more. Each plate is thoughtfully plated and beautifully presented, which the artist in me enjoys a great deal.

While visiting Hotel Bethlehem's restaurant, 1741 on the Terrace, we had the chance to try a medley of items, starting with the lobster bisque soup. Soups are one of my favorite items on any menu, so I love it when restaurants have unique and flavorful selections of soups. This lobster bisque is the best I've ever had, with being perfectly creamy, but not too overpowering. The meals that we had a chance to try were the salmon and the lamb. The lamb chops were cooked to perfection and plated on a bed of sweet potato puree and a pesto sauce garnish. Not only did it look interesting, but tasted wonderful as well; tender and juicy.

The salmon came out on a bed of fingerling potatoes with a creamy mushroom sauce and a side of asparagus. The flavors were perfectly paired. The potent salmon flavor mixed well with the creamy sauce, and the rich potatoes complimented the bitterness of the asparagus. I am not a big asparagus fan, but loved this combination.

The meal was complete with creme brulee, which can sometimes be very heavy and dense, but this was light and the topping was perfectly browned.

It was an excellent experience, and a delicious one at that!
