East Passyunk Gets a Restaurant Week

Lamb ragu is on the menu at Le Virtù
It may be last day of Center City Restaurant Week, but there’s something new to look forward to. East Passyunk has just announced its first-ever Restaurant Week, to be held Sunday, February 24 through Saturday, March 2. Instead of a single set price, participating dining rooms can opt to offer a three-course meal for either $15, $25 or $35. This means some serious deals will be available at some of the hottest restaurants in South Philly.

For example, you’ll be able to enjoy a robust $15 lunch at red-sauce haven Marra’s, including a soup or salad, a main course like capellini with lump crab meat and a chunk of cheesecake for dessert. Score an impressive $25 dinner at Cantina Los Caballitos that takes you from empanadas to roasted pork loin to coffee flan - the Mexican restaurant will even throw in a tequila pairing to each dish for an extra $10.

At the $35 price point, you’ll have access to the fine-dining stars of the Avenue, including Le Virtù (where you’ll find Joe Cicala’s 60-foot maccheroni alla mugnaia), Will (Chris Kearse’s milk-fed poulard), Fond (Lee Styer’s roasted mushroom risotto) and Izumi (duck and foie gras dumplings). Reservations are highly recommended, these seats will sell out fast.
