PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — It’s time to start making those Restaurant Week reservations.
Philadelphia’s “Restaurant Week” — actually two weeks — takes place this year January 22nd through 27th and January 29th through February 3rd.
Michelle Shannon of the Center City District says this is a citywide promotion to showcase Philadelphia’s vibrant culinary scene.
“Some of the restaurants that we have in Center City are obviously top notch and come with a top-notch price tag,” she says. “(Restaurant Week) gives people the opportunity to get in at a slightly lower cost and see if they enjoy the restaurant.”

During Restaurant Week, cost of dinners are $35, lunches are $20, excluding drinks. Dinners are a minimum of three courses.
For a list of the 124 participating restaurants, go to centercityphila.org. There, says Shannon, you can get not only a list of participating restaurants but their menus, and a list of parking operators that are honoring the event’s parking discount.
