Locals know Chestnut Hill for its cobblestone streets and mom-and-pop businesses, and from September 4-13, there’s even more reason to visit. In 2014, Chestnut Hill Business District began hosting a biannual Restaurant Week to highlight the outstanding neighborhood dining scene. For 10 days, the ever-so-popular annual culinary event continues with A Taste of Summer: Dining in Chestnut Hill. This year, however, the event will have a special focus on limited-time seasonal menus curated by local chefs. “I hope that diners choose to come out to support our independent restaurants and take the opportunity to explore a new establishment that they've never eaten at before,” says Philip Dawson, executive director of the Chestnut Hill Business District. “Most small businesses are facing their most challenging times in recent memory, and the patronage of their customers is critical to ensuring their survival.” Peruse local boutiques like El Quetzal and Sara Campbell before indulging in breakfast, lunch or dinner menus at restaurants like McNally’s Tavern and Mica Restaurant. Many of the restaurants will include outdoor seating, as well as takeout, delivery and curbside pickup options.
