Housed in a 200 year old stagecoach stop dating back to 1790, Bolete is our daydream turned reality. After years in the restaurant industry in San Francisco and Boston, we set out to build a small restaurant where Lee could always be in the (super tiny) kitchen and Erin could greet each and every guest. Being surrounded by some of the best farmland on the East Coast made building a restaurant rooted in local ingredients a reality here in the Lehigh Valley.  We change our menu daily and prepare everything from scratch. Please ask if you would like something altered or if you don’t see it at all as we are happy to accommodate.
