Food fanatics, rejoice! It’s time to eat like you make millions: Center City Restaurant Week returns for its tenth anniversary this September, and here’s what you need to know to take advantage of it!

What: Center City Restaurant Week (presented by TD Bank) happens every January and September, and it actually spans two weeks, not one. During Restaurant Week, more than 130 city eateries offer dining discounts: three course dinners are $35, and three-course lunches are $20 (alcohol, tax and gratuity aren’t included). However, not all CC Restaurant Week participants offer lunch, so make sure to check online or by phone before you head over.

When: September 15-20 and 22-27, 2013

Note: Saturdays are not usually included in the deal, but certain restaurants that do offer RW menus on weekends are denoted with “SAT.”

Where: Center City, which means the neighborhoods of Rittenhouse Square, Fitler Square, Art Museum/Fairmount, Logan Square, Queen Village/Bella Vista, Chinatown, Southwest Center City, Avenue of the Arts, Washington Square West, Society Hill and Old City. Phew.
