eat, eat, + eat (aka how to stay warm in philly)

Center City District Restaurant Week returns this Sunday, January 20th, which means a quick trip to the city—or a short walk/cab ride if you live in town—will get you a 3-course dinner for only $35. For those of you who can endure a daytime food coma, many restaurants are also offering 3-course lunches for $20.
We’ll be keeping our eyes on @PhilaRestWeek for updates throughout the restaurant week period (January 20-25 & January 27- February 1, 2013).
In the meantime, we’ve been digging into the menus of participating restaurants listed here. (If you search thoroughly, you’ll even find some spots such as a.kitchen & Zama that snuck in a 4th course.)
Don’t have time to sit down on your computer to check out your options (reservations are going like hotcakes; we learned that the hard way last night)? Here’s a link to the mobile app: http://m.centercityphila.org
For those of you who miss CCDRW altogether, don’t sweat it. In November, Michael Klein reported that East Passyunk is planning its own restaurant week February 24th to March 2nd with 3-course lunch/dinner menus at $15, $25 and $35. And, @foobooz was all abuzz earlier today about Philadelphia magazine’s Philly Cooks Week slated for February 25th-28th. Apparently the City of Brotherly Love is aiming to become the City of Brotherly Chubs—just in time for swimsuit season.
