The holidays have faded away, the Mummers are quiet, and a new year has come to Philadelphia. Though your resolutions may have something to do with a new diet or watching what you eat, they may also have something to do with watching your money and counting those stacks. What better way to (sort of) observe that resolution than with Center City Restaurant Week, returning to Philly January 12-24?
Restaurant Week gives you a chance to order at least three to four courses at some of the most popular (and most expensive) restaurants in town, and all you have to do is pay $35 a meal. This year, many standards are still offering expensive plates for a fraction of a cost, but newcomers are also getting in on the RW fun so you can soak up the good food and killer ambiance without going broke. Take a look at our picks for the best deals to check out during Center City Restaurant Week.
Gabi is the newest restaurant on this list, so Restaurant Week is the perfect opportunity to try out the all-day French eatery from the people behind Bistrot La Minette and La Peg. Gabi is going for a Parisian cafe vibe, serving classics that suit the aesthetic. Go for escargot, steak-frites (usually $23), and crème brûlée for some true decadence, and then walk it off like the Parisians do.
