Brass Rail restaurant in Allentown closing its doorways June 4

ALLENTOWN, Pa. – A longtime Allentown restaurant might be closing its doorways.

A supervisor at The Brass Rail on Lehigh Avenue tells us the final day might be June 4. The restaurant had been trying to relocate, however apparently that did not work out, at the very least not as of proper now.

The Brass Rail has been in enterprise for greater than 90 years.

“This was a really tough determination,” an indication from the Sorrentino household stated, and so they thanked clients for 91 years of patronage.

Founder Phillip Sorrentino was an immigrant from Italy who in 1931 opened a hamburger and hotdog stand. In 1933, Sorrentino opened at 1137 Hamilton Avenue in Allentown, and in 1937, he launched the cheesesteak to Allentown, in keeping with the Brass Rail’s web site.

The Hamilton Avenue web site closed in 2001 whereas the Lehigh Avenue restaurant, opened in 1961, will function for a little bit greater than two extra months.

A Royal Farms comfort retailer might be constructed on the web site of the Lehigh Avenue restaurant.
