Olio Trattoria and what else is up on Main Street in Bethlehem

Somehow the mainstream media hasn't picked up on four exciting changes to Main Street in Bethlehem. Here's an update.



  • I am not making this up: Seasons, an olive oil and vinegar tap room is open next to Tika's on the 500 block of Main Street. Update: Here are some articles from The Morning Call and Express Times that were published after you read it here first.

  • Olio Trattoria (555 Main Street), the long-awaited northern Italian restaurant in former Woolworth's building (most recently Bonte Cafe) is OPEN. Their soft opening was last week. The menu looks a lot like Sette Luna's - more fish and grilled meats than lasagna and meatballs.

  1. Does this mean Comfort & Joy is closing?

  2. I AM GOING TO ALL OF THEM! I had a shot of garlic oil once in Easton. It was surprisingly great.

  3. The Kenyan restaurant sounds interesting. Do you know where it will be located? Thanks.

  4. Comfort & Joy is closing. And the Kenyan restaurant was described to me as being "in the back of Wired Cafe."

  5. Oh darn, that makes me sad about C&J, what with Clothesline also closing. That block has a lot of potential, or at least I hope it does!

  6. I stopped in at Seasons today, they won't be totally open for business until Thursday, but you can go in and taste the oils and vinegars and check it out.

    It's a pretty cool concept, prices for a bottle of the oil or vinegar of your choice range from about $14.95 for the typical balsamic to $33 for black truffle oil.
