In 2002 Edge Restaurant was introduced to the Lehigh Valley. Chef Timothy Widrick has been the driving engine behind our success; using classical French technique with worldly inspirations, he has made a name for himself. We are a family-owned restaurant, and it is our mutual passion for food, service, and drinks, that brings us all together. For years, the owning team was looking for the perfect location to expand our brand and in 2020 they opened SURV Restaurant. With this new restaurant, the Lotus Restaurant Group was formed. Our logo symbolizes the culmination of the owning partners. The Lotus is a beautiful flower that blooms in the most unlikely of environments. It symbolizes rebirth, unwavering faith, and tenacity. At the center is Executive Chef Timothy Widrick with his knives, and the petals each represent the additional partners of our company. Karen Widrick is our Director of Operations; she is the heart of our day-to-day operations. Whether it’s coaching and development of staff or ordering the supplies needed to run our restaurants efficiently, her expertise and care are present everywhere. Spencer Cobb, Director of Business Development, manages the analytic processes of the business and the growth of the restaurant group. His leadership encourages us to always think outside the box, adapt and evolve. Carissa Cobb, Director of Guest Experience is the final petal. It is her creative vision and passion for superior service that blends everything together. This gives us the aesthetic and vibe that is felt the moment you cross the threshold.
