This winter and spring, get ready to dig in without digging deep in Greater Philadelphia.
From East Passyunk Avenue in the city to West Chester in the countryside, Greater Philadelphia plays host to a number of restaurant weeks over the next two months that are packed with mouth-watering dining deals.
It’s good to have goals. So with meal deals awaiting across the region, mark your calendars, break out your elastic-waist pants and plan to enjoy at least one meal (but preferably more!) during each of these restaurant weeks.
West Chester kicks off Restaurant Week with multi-course culinary creations from local favorites such Pietro’s Prime, Doce Zola and Opa Taverna. Diners can choose from $30, $40 or $50 prix-fixe menus, depending on the restaurant, and reservations are encouraged. The full list of restaurants can be found here (and check back regularly for the latest additions).
While you’re there: Grab a nightcap at the Good, Bad & Ugly underground bar , located below Stove & Tap. The hidden spot serves up beer, cocktails, games and snacks late into the night.
Dozens of new restaurants join in on the dining deals to make this edition of Main Line Today Restaurant Week the biggest yet. Newcomers like the casual Baja spot Buena Onda in Radnor join returning favorites like Lola’s Garden in Ardmore and Devon’s Terrain Cafe. All told, more than 40 restaurants in Montgomery, Delaware and Chester counties serve up fixed lunch menus at $25, $30 or $35 price points, while dinner menus clock in at $30, $45 or $55.
While you’re there: Pop into the market at DiFabio’s Restaurant and Tap for an impressive selection of to-go wines. All wines are rated 90 or higher on the 100-point wine-scoring scale and cost $28 or less.
Restaurants along one of the city’s most delicious streets — known for its diverse dining scene and restaurants helmed by acclaimed chefs — open their doors for prix-fixe lunch and dinner deals during this once-a-year restaurant week . Special menus are available at nearly 30 restaurants at four varying price points: $20, $30, $40 and $55. Participating spots include Stargazy, La Scala’s Birra, Barcelona Wine Bar, Bing Bing Dim Sum, Ember and Ash, and Gabriella’s Vietnam, which recently scored an epic New York Times accolade .
While you’re there : After your meal, pop into Passyunk Avenue’s ILLExotics — a boutique shop that houses exotic pets and uncommon tropical plants. Who knows? You might just meet a new best friend!
Find a new favorite spot in Delco. Ten of Media’s most sought-after restaurants serve up rotating specials and fixed dinner menus ranging in price from $35 to $50 during the spring edition of Media Restaurant Week . Participants include Spasso Italian Grill, the casual Mexican spot La Catrina and the modern TWO Fourteen, which opened last year to rave reviews.
While you’re there : Take a hike! Before your meal, work up an appetite by exploring 17 miles of trails at Tyler Arboretum — one of the region’s oldest and largest public gardens. Bring a pair of binoculars for birding and take in the sights of early bloomers like lilacs, magnolias and other woodland wildflowers. Note: There is an admission fee for non-members.
Eat good. Feel good. King of Prussia’s annual restaurant week offers an opportunity to dine out for a great cause, as a portion of proceeds from participating restaurants is donated to Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
