Fourteen restaurants in the Fishtown, Northern Liberties, and Penn’s Landing areas will be offering exclusive lunch and dinner options as part of the new Night Out Restaurant Week initiative. We highlight a few of the participating eateries that you must absolutely check out.
“I think it’s great that we have a Restaurant Week here in Northern Liberties,” said executive sous chef, Aila DeVowe, who had a heavy hand in organizing the menu. “It gives a chance for us to highlight some of the smaller restaurants that are doing some fantastic things in the area.” The traditional Spanish eatery, popular for its modern tapas and great wines, will be serving up a three course dinner ($35 per person) featuring jamon croquetas, empanada de datiles con tocino, and mejillones, among other dishes. 1030 N. Second St., 215-923-1313
Moshulu—the oldest and largest square rigged sailing vessel still afloat—will be offering a prix-fixe menu during Night Out Restaurant Week for both lunch ($20 per person) and dinner ($35 per person). During the daytime, local businessmen and women can opt for a fresh Caesar salad and California shrimp roll before ending with a decadent lemon ricotta cheese cake with lemon curd and raspberries. If you can’t make it for lunch, make a reservation for a romantic dinner and indulge in the chilled tomato gazpacho, tandoori-glazed mahi mahi, and crème brulee. 401 S. Columbus Blvd., 215-923-2500
The Northern Liberties gastro pub boasts courtyard seating, two floors for dining and private events, and live jazz brunches. During Night Out Restaurant Week, the spot will offer a three course meal for $35. 129 W. Laurel St., 267-273-1632
