    Karla’s on Mechanic Street was always my favorite when I lived in the area. On Monday nights they would always have what they called a locals dinner which was a complete meal otherwise everything is ala carte.

    Try Mother’s restaurant in New Hope if it is still there, moderate price and very good food. Used to be a deli now more upscale. Also LuLus on main for sandwiches and middle eastern salads, love their Baba Ganoush

    Marsha Brown’s Creole Kitchen – Built inside a 125 year old stone church and is right in the heart of downtown New Hope on Main Street. The food is great and if you enjoy cuisine that has amazing scents and real flavor then you’ll enjoy this. Valet parking too.

    We love New Hope! Marsha Brown, The Landing, Mother’s (for dessert only) and right across the river in Lambertville try Lily’s on the Canal (great for outdoor dining on a nice day). Enjoy!

    Hi Shelly, try The Landing. I love it there. The Mansion Inn is also nice.

    Hi – looks like you already have lots of great options – and wonderful recommendations. I spend significant time in New Hope since my family lives relatively close by – New Hope and Lambertville (just a short walk across the Delaware River Bridge are such fun places – packed on the weekends! Great little boutique shops ranging from antiques to high end art galleries! In addition to all the great recommendations – ranging from The Mansion, Marsha Browns, The Landing and Logan Inn – and Lilly’s on the Canal (one of my very favorites – but it can be a bit loud at times – I’d like to also recommend Anton’s at the Swan in Lambertville – if you are looking for outstanding service, upscale food and a intimate setting – this is the place. It’s not on the “main drag” – just a couple of blocks off – well worth investigating at http://www.antons-at-the-swan.com/index.htm. So, whether you want casual – like The Landing or upscale like Antons, you have lots of choices! Enjoy!

    I am not familiar with the restaurants in New Hope but closeby is Lambertville….just over the bridge. There we ate at Inn at Lambertville station which was quite good, and a lovely place to stay.

    Hi Shelley…I wish I could help you but I haven’t been to New Hope PA…I would suggest contacting the Chamber of Commerce in New Hope by Internet or Phone and most of the time they are more than happy to recommend all kinds of choices for you! Good Luck to you and enjoy your trip..

    Hi Shelley, There are a couple of good restaurants in New Hope, Marsha Brown is in a converted old church, the Landing I think is on the water and across the river in Lambertville is a really great place, the Hamilton Grill,.Most would be considered three $$$ in reviews

    Hi Shelley, I really wouldn’t feel comfortable recommending something because I’ve only eaten lunch there once. I found this site with a few suggestions http://www.newhopepennsylvania.com/dining.html Also, the Inn at Phillips Mill on River Road did get a good review from a local critic. Good Luck!

    New Hope, PA is a wonderful town near Allentown, PA, and the New Jersey border. My friend Gloria, who runs the Lehigh Valley Music Conference (happening the weekend of May 5, 6 nd 7) recommends Italian Cucina, Logan Inn and the Inn at Phillips Mill for great food. And these venues will also have music!

    Check out the web sites for Marsha Brown’s and Zoubi. Some of my personal faves are across the New Hope-Lambertville Bridge in Lambertville NJ.
    They are Lilly’s on the Canal, The Hamilton Grill, (Drinks 1st at the Boat House across the way) and for tapas, the Wine Cellar in Lambertville Station.
    Lots of good eating and great atmosphere down here in the “River Towns”!

    P.S. Feel free to email me with any other questions about this wonderful area-

    I haven’t been to New Hope in many years. I truly do not recall a memorable restaurant in New Hope itself. Perhaps one of the bed and breakfasts in that area would be kind enough to give you some names. Good luck.

    And a note from the far West … come to Ashland, Oregon and enjoy fabulous restaurants, the Oregon Shakespeare Festival (Feb – Nov; 11 plays; 3 Shakespeare). World-class restaurants in a small-town (Residents: 22,000; 300,000 visitors!) setting!

    I have never been to New Hope Pennsylvania. Not sure what kind of food you are looking for or if this is a special occasion. That being said I did find the Logan Inn which received raves on several sites. Even if the food wasn’t good it is certainly eye candy and you should be pleased before you take the first bite. It’s info is: 10 West Ferry Street New Hope, PA 18938
    Phone: 215.862.2300. Let me know if you need more info.

    For Vegetarian, Sprig & Vine is getting rave reviews for amazing vegetarian cuisine. For French cuisine Tastebuds is the place to go. They change their menu with each season, so everything is different every time. This is the crown jewel of in-town New Hope dining. Simple mod-rustic decor, wonderful food, beautiful presentation, and attentive service however it’s not for kids and it’s BYOB. For a view go to Martine’s Riverhouse. Great setting right on the river with a big deck on which to dine; friendly service, and a creative menu that is fairly well-executed. Enjoy!

    To be honest, vie only been to New Hope twice. Philadelphia is more my area of expertise, but its a cute little town with a bunch of restaurants and shops along Main Street. I ate at The Landing, which is very casual, reasonably priced, with a varied menu and nice wine/beer selection. Marsha Browns is a wonderful restaurant in an old converted church, so the setting itself is pretty special, with stained glass and loads of charm. The prices are fairly expensive ($25 dinner entrees), but the food and atmosphere is great. If you love creole food, I’d highly suggest it. If you’re not looking to break the bank, I’m sure their lunch menu is equally as delicious as their dinner one! Besides, you wNt some money left over to spend at the cute shops in town!! Have fun!

    Do I need to visit New Hope? I love the name. When we travel I usually check websites like Fodors (my favorite) and check the Zaget’s list. They usually are best when you cross check. I have never been disappointed. Then there is always the word of mouth people…those are the best sources ever. Let us know what you find out.

    If you ever visit Portland Oregon I have some great ideas for you.

    Hi there Shelley — I can tell you all the great restaurants to experience in Honolulu, but, not NEW HOPE, PA….I’m in the middle of the Pacific in Hawaii. However, I can tell you a funny experience – akin to your question: I grew up on Long Island, and my parents loved to go ‘antiquing’ and one special place (back in the 1950’s & 1960’s they enjoyed going to was New Hope, PA – and I learned/or had my first Escargot experience/tasting there – and have been hooked every since. My little trivia of New Hope, PA – couldn’t tell you the restaurant, but, if I recall, it was Victorian in feel – like dining in someone’s home – but, that’s all.

    If you ever come to Hawaii – look me up – I can share everything that a ‘must see/do’ here…and, it would be my pleasure to do so.

    With aloha – Jeanne Rice

      Actually, my son is going to Hawaii soon on his honeymoon. Any suggestions for restaurants in Maui or Honolulu?

      Reply
    • Jeanne Datz Rice wrote on :

      On Maui – it’s all about the resort restaurants – with one exception near Lahaina – Chez Paul. It’s been there FOREVER – and the chef grows his own herbs outside the restaurant (he probably was one of the first chefs to do so) and his cuisine in exquisite. I wouldn’t miss Chez Paul – especially on a honeymoon. It also depends on which side of the Island you/he will be staying. On the Kaanaapali side – – the Hyatt Regency has great restaurants – I’m more familiar with the Wailea side of the Island (it’s quieter) – and the Four Season’s Spago is exceptional, as is Mala Wailea (there’s a Mala near Kaanaapali too – I’ve never been – but, I hear good things). I’m not a big Maui fan – so it’s hard for me….I live on Oahu/Waikiki
      and can share more:

      There are just so many great restaruants – and since Waikiki is always so busy – it’s good to make reservations a day or two in advance, otherwise they won’t ‘get in.’

      Favorites: Roy’s – in the Embassy Suites – the first in Asian-Fusian cuisine here in Hawaii – great selection and their $49 prix fixe is the best value offering the ‘best of the menu’ too. Don’t forget the chocolate souffle for dessert (share) it is just amazing, as is their Butterfish Misyoaki – Japanense delicate marination of cod fish – but, it doesn’t taste like cod at all – it melts in your mouth (in Hawaii we say: “broke the mouth.’ It’s THAT good. Other great places: Steak – we love HY’S – been here since 1976; BLT – yes, it’s a ‘chain’ but, a VERY GOOD CHAIN – and we really like it a lot – it’s at the new Trump Tower. The Halekulani Resort’s “House Without a Key” is THE place to go for sunset cocktails while you enjoy the true Hawaiian music of old with hula dancing by a former Miss Hawaii – it’s the very best – very elegant – and their Orchids restaurant is exceptional as well.

      For sushi – the BEST sushi – go to Yanagi Sushi – out of Waikiki – tell them ‘Jeanne & Alan” sent you – and they will take good care of your son/bride – can make res for sushi bar too – and do so – it is THE BEST in Hawaii – VERY traditional (no Americanized rolls – okay – a few) the fish is so fresh and the portions are quite generous. There is Pablos Cantina for Mexican – Taormina for Japanese-Italian fusion (amazing!!!) – and my favorite – STAGE – also out of Waikiki – it is an exceptional restaurant the menu and the place.

      And, – since I own Segway of Hawaii – perhaps your honeymooners would like to see the sights of historic Honolulu — for first-timers to Honolulu – it’s a great way to get around – on Segway Personal Transporters – and have one of the best guides around share his Aloha and knowledge as to how Honolulu ‘grew’ up – it’s a fabulous tour – check us out at: http://www.segwayofhawaii.com and also go to http://www.tripadvisor.com and type in Segway Hawaii – and see what our guests have to say about our tours – they are exceptional, if I do say so myself. I would be happy to offer your son a discount as well – have him call me directly at our office (on website) and ask for me and we’ll take good care of them – and show them a wonderful time.

      Okay -ok – happy to help – when is the wedding – Congratulations!!

    If you like food with a southern flair (I’m a southern gal myself), go to Marsha Brown’s. It bills itself as a Creole kitchen, and the venue is as great as the food. The restaurant is housed in a old church – so get ready for an inspirational meal.
