Center City Restaurant Week

Every Philadelphia foodie’s favorite time of year: Center City Restaurant Week is back!  September 12-16 & 18-23 restaurants will be featuring three-course dinners for $35 and three-course lunches for $20.  This time around many of the restaurants will also be featuring locally sourced products in the recipes: look for the tractor symbol on the menu!

We will probably be checking out Zahav–an Israeli restaurant in Washington Square.  Their restaurant week menu looks pretty great, and has the added bonus of more bang for your buck with 4 courses instead of the usual 3!

Credit Crunch Alert:

Hey Folks, this is just a quick heads-up that University City Dining Days is coming up–yep, your favourite downtown event just moved out west!

UCity Dining Days

The event features close to 30 restaurants at 3 different price points. for $15, $25, or $30 you’ll get 3 courses and a great, cheap, restaurant experience.

There are some great deals there.  Josh and I will be trying to check out Distrito (5 items for 30 bucks) and Midatlantic (one of our local favourites for its tongue-in-cheek treatment of local favorites, including veggie scrapple and Tastycake bread pudding).  Other places to try include Vietnam Cafe for some tasty Asian fare, and Biba Wine bar, the baby sister to the ever-loved Tria family.

Go forth and enjoy your eats for the cheap!
