#nofilter Arancini. Arancini, or stuffed, fried risotto balls, are a delicious Italian snack. We rotate different twists on this dish... currently we have: a squid ink risotto, made with black rice, stuffed with smoked mozzarella, presented with black garlic aioli, pickled knotweed, and grated ricotta salata. This is a must try appetizer, with its subtle smoky flavors and beautiful presentation.

Toasted Marcona Almonds, simple yet delicious like #Italian food should be. Lightly #toasted with olive oil, sea salt & #fresh rosemary; this #spuntini is a great pair with #negroni or a snack to start out any meal! 🍴🥂🍸

Its #Negroni week and we are most certainly celebrating it. Thanks to @imbibe and @campariofficial, Negroni week features one of the worlds classic cocktails- and for a good cause. Every Negroni sold at Molinaris this week means $1 donated to the @bethlehemfoodcoop, in our continuing dedication to supporting local food! And delicious cocktails. We have seven different twists on Negroni for you to try.

The Southside Film Festival has been a proud local tradition of Bethlehem since 2003. Spearheaded by local businesses and artists, each year the festival is a wonderful cultural and artistic attraction. This is the 5th year that Molinaris will host a ticketed, 5-course meal featuring some of the areas top chefs. It has consistently been an amazing and fun dining event. This year we feature @themint_gastropub, @3rd_ferry, @grain.allentown, and @madebylino. Wine provided by @siwines, beer by @bonnbrewing, and coffee by @monocacycoffee. There will be a round of hors doeuvres, 4 savory courses, and a dessert. Half of the proceeds go directly to support the film festival. Delicious food for a great cultural cause. 🎭🎥🎬👨🏻‍🍳🍷🍽

Preparing our olives: Castelvetrano olives, from Sicily, are a sweeter, buttery olive, on the riper side for a green olive. Gaeta olives, from Puglia, are tart, slightly salty, and have a hint of citrus. Taggiasca olives are the most assertive of the trio, but not overbearing- they have herbal and licorice notes to their flavor. They are marinated in olive oil with orange zest, fennel pollen, and chili flake, at once balancing and complementing the olives natural flavor. Enjoy with our other spuntini and a glass of crisp white wine. Cheers 👨🏻‍🍳🍸🇮🇹

Special Announcement: On Monday, June 12th, we will be hosting our 5th annual SouthSide Film Festival Fundraiser! Tickets for this event are on sale now- link below - but are already going fast. We are featuring several other fantastic Lehigh Valley restaurants and businesses this year who are donating their services for this excellent and unique collaborative dinner: TheMINT Gastropub, 3rd & Ferry Fresh Fish, Grain and Lit Roastery and Bakeshop. We are especially excited about this lineup. Hors doeuvres are being served by each chef preparing a savory course, followed by a 5-course meal with Italian wine pairings generously donated by South Italy Imports. In addition, we will have Bonn Place Brewing Co. on tap with a special saison brewed just for this event. With dessert, Monocacy Coffee Co. is providing the beans for espresso and coffee. Half of the proceeds from this event are donated to the festival. #lehighvalley #restaurants #bethlehem #allentown #easton #food #eatlocal #igbethlehem #independent #film #supportlocal #art
Did you know our bar was custom made and 100% solid walnut? It was one of the first things to go into the space almost six years ago, and we do our best to keep it looking good as new for you! #positively3rdstreet #savetheairfare
