We have been taking our granddaughters to the Flying Egg before they return to college each fall - it is a super fun tradition. This week, we celebrated our 10 year old granddaughter’s double digit birthday at the Flying Egg and she had a delicious brunch and birthday treat brought by the waitress. What a cute surprise ! We do love to visit the Flying Egg!

ARE WE A RESTAURANT? A BAR? A DISTILLERY? YES! WE ARE ALL THOSE THINGS. WE ARE A DESTINATION LIKE NO OTHER.
We built our facility inside a prohibition era bank building. Inside you will find a one-of-a-kind tasting room on our main floor. Welcome to walk-ins on Friday and Saturdays. Reservations will be for upstairs, unless full, then seating will be downstairs at our high top tables. Come in and enjoy our signature cocktails paired perfectly with our incredible food menu in a sophisticated environment. All spirits are house made. We have local craft beers and local wine from Franklin Hill Vineyards. Come in for lunch, dinner, tastings, or just hang at the bar. Whatever you choose you will be amazed by the stunning view of our state-of-the-art distilling equipment. Please note that our main dining room is located on the 2nd floor, (UNTIL UPSTAIRS IS FULL) accessible via stairs. If you require seating on our first floor, please call 610-625-4585.

Located on the 6th floor of the Gateway Building on the South Side of Bethlehem, ZEST has had the honor of being awarded the Lehigh Valley's favorite rooftop of 2021, favorite atmosphere of 2020, and favorite new restaurant of 2019. Chef Justin Cogan brings New American cuisine to life with signature dishes including braised beef short ribs and crab & mango spring rolls.

Had an amazing meal with friends. Wait times were ok, drinks were ok but on the pricey side. All in all, very satisfied with our experience.

We had a great time at our first visit to Thyme! The view was amazing, our waiter was excellent, very friendly and kind. We had a table behind us in very loud conversations, so we had to talk louder, but it was not too bad. All the food was very good, except the beef dish (I can't remember how to spell the W name), which was ordered medium, and we thought it came out medium-rare. Overall, a good experience.
