Center City District Restaurant Week

Media Title

If you’re anything at all like me, and your high-on-the-hog tastes far exceed your barely-gettin’-by budget, you too must damn near do cartwheels when any of Philadelphia’s wonderful array of restaurant-week discount days roll around on the calendar. They’re among the painfully rare times a working girl—think Melanie Griffith, not Julia Roberts—can take advantage of the marvelous specials at dozens of well-reviewed dining dens in various ‘hoods, like Old City, East Passyunk and University City, and find out if their accolades are well-earned or not. Three-course dinners for only $35 per person and three-course lunches for a mere $20 is a bargain, baby, no matter how you slice it.

Well, the Big Daddy of them all—Center City District Restaurant Week, with over 100 participating sites—is so popular that its seven days is actually two six-day observations, the first of which begins today. (Don’t get paid for a couple weeks? Fret not: Part Two is from Sunday, Sept. 14 to Fri., Sept. 19.) And there’s still time to book reservations at a notable, usually-expensive eatery, places like Lacroix at The Rittenhouse, Del Frisco’s, Ocean Prime and the palate-pleasing high-end Mexican spot, Tequilas, whose wonderful roses margarita beat Milton Street—and came close to defeating the Fresh Prince—in PW’s “Mayor Madness” bracket last year. Check the website for the complete restaurant roster. // KENYA BEVERLY
