Delicious Food is always served at The Apollo Grill in Bethlehem, PA 18018


2015-06-26 17.15.20

This is an easy review to write because whether you are eating lunch or dinner, The Apollo Grill is a delicious restaurant where you can enjoy a very nice meal in a causal atmosphere.   You can’t go wrong by choosing this restaurant because the service and the food are always top notch.  The lunch and dinner menu are filled with favorites however every day a chef’s special which will tempt you to go off-menu.

The Lunch menu is always poised to please.  You can enjoy half portions of most any item on the menu.  Daily lunch specials are always offered.  The crab cakes are always good every time that I order them.   Or the Quesadillas make a nice meal with a salad.  You can’t go wrong with the Buffalo Beer Battered Shrimp or the Asian Lettuce Wraps.  If you are overwhelmed with all of the choices at lunch, I recommend the soup and the salad combo as a good fall back item.  Accompanied by a generous basket of a variety of bread – the Apollo Caesar salad or the Mesclun Greens with vegetables both are ample in size and the bowl of soup is always delicious.  No matter whether you choose the Baked French Onion Soup or the Crab & Asparagus Bisque – you can’t make a bad choice.  The Soup de Jour is always marvelous.  The chef’s soup creation compliments the time of year and includes seasonal ingredients when it is served!

The Diner entrees are scrumptious and plentiful.  The meat selections; beef, lamb, fish or chicken are always done to perfection.  But if you are in the mood to taste more than one dish or if you want to share a variety of selections with someone else at your table, you can do this at the Apollo.  The ingenious menu is split into full and half portions.  So it is a great way to try a variety of specialties in one sitting. Graze through the menu!

But don’t leave without eating dessert!

And don’t forget BRUNCH either!!  Served on either Saturday or Sunday you can enjoy a delicious choice of entrées and signature Bloody Marys or a bubbly Mimosa.

The service and the atmosphere are consistent.  The bar crowd is lively while the dining room is quiet.   You won’t be disappointed by The Apollo Grill’s service or the food.  This is one of my favorite restaurants in town.

Be sure to make reservations, especially if want to dine on a busy weekend night or during the Holidays.  The restaurant is closed on Sundays and Mondays.  The hours of operation generally from 11am to 10pm.

Funny that my blog should start with food…

Good Morning!  I think that it is kind of strange that the first thing that I want to write about it food especially on a real estate blog.  I like real estate, architecture, food, cooking, God, wine, travel, people, bicycling, mystery novels, my husband, my family, my step-kids and granddaughters, art and museums (not necessarily in this order either!) and lots of other stuff.  As I write you will come to know me and the things that make me tick.  So here goes…

Cauliflower Crust

For some time I have been trying to lose weight.  Like every other woman on the planet weight  is something that we work on over a lifetime.  For the years I have been gaining weight…slowly, slowly then SUDDENLY… I looked in the mirror one day and said, “Who’s that woman?  She looks like me but I don’t recognize her.”  Some of you out there can relate, I’m sure.  Anyway, I have taken on the Paleo Diet and have finally been successful at loosing 10 pounds so far (still many, many more pounds to go and that’s ok. Remember, slowly, slowly then Suddenly…)  But in this whole process I have been conscious about keeping 2/3rds of my plate vegetables.  The elimination of all sugar and flour from the diet (and their poisonous concoctions) really helped take the weight off, I think.

So that brings me to today’s subject.  Cauliflower Pizza Crust.  I have seen a lot of  recipes and notes about cauliflower and all of the things that you can make with it.   Recipes like cauliflower rice and all sorts of cauliflower casseroles but one that made me curious was the Cauliflower Pizza Crust.

Ringing out the water from the cooked cauliflower takes a little extra time but the rest of the recipe comes together quickly.  I made the crust as described with the following tweaks:

1. I used a goat cheese that included fresh herbs.

2. I cooked the crust on a piece of parchment paper directly on a pre-heated pizza stone.  The cooking time was reduced in my oven to 30 minutes.

It was topped with pizza sauce, pepperoni and a mixture of Italian cheeses and it was quite tasty.   I hope that you find it as good as we did.  I am looking forward to creating more pizzas with different toppings using the same crust.
