The event kicked off this past Sunday the 11th, and will continue up until the 16th. It will then start up again on September 18th, and last until Friday, September 23rd. Participating restaurants will serve three-course meals at prices even college students can afford. Lunch meals will cost a total of twenty dollars, and dinner meals will add up to only thirty-five dollars.
Many restaurants Philadelphians know and love are partaking in this annual affair. Some popular names include, El Vez, Max Brenner (chocolate for dinner!), Buddakan, and the Continental.
As Restaurant Week gains popularity each year, it is key to make sure you have a reservation. The restaurants themselves are taking reservations via telephone or website, and centercityphila.org can schedule a reservation as well. As for transportation, take the subway straight to Center City, or to the Walnut-Locust stop; a lot of the restaurants engaging in the occasion are in walking distance from these stations.
Fall is a great time to be in Philly and Restaurant Week is a fantastic way to kick off the new season and the new semester. Grab some friends, or take a study break, and venture out and support the city’s local restaurants: your stomach will thank you!
