Philly Restaurant Week is Back!

We’ve all grown accustomed to the “cancelled” signs on all of our upcoming Facebook events; however, there’s one event series that is continuing as planned, and it’s a fall favorite! Every September, dozens of restaurants in Center City Philadelphia, all just minutes from your Royal Athena apartment, open their doors for multi-course, discounted meals as part of Philadelphia Restaurant Week. The series, Sept. 13-25, will include more than 70 participants, many of them among the city’s most award-winning culinary standouts. Some will serve both lunch and dinner options, many will have outdoor dining available and, for the first time, diners can get Restaurant Week meals to go. While the event may look a bit different this year, the taste—and savings!—will be just as outstanding.

With so many mouthwatering participants, it can be hard to figure out where to go. If you’re a meat lover, look no further than Butcher Bar. Located less than 15 minutes from your Royal Athena apartment, Butcher Bar is offering on-site dinner, including in its outdoor dining area, as well as takeout—so you can enjoy your three courses wherever you feel most comfortable!

Speaking of comfort, you might want to wear the comfy pants, as a meal at Butcher Bar is a definite cheat night for your diet. The restaurant specializes in all things meat—such as smoked boar ribs, strip steak, ribeye and meatballs, the latter of which are made with three different meats and stuffed with cheese. You can even start your meal off with its popular bacon appetizer: a hearty slab smothered in maple bourbon brown sugar. While carnivores are king at Butcher Bar, the Restaurant Week menu is sure to feature options for non-meat-loving folks as well, like its rigatoni brimming with fresh veggies or the smoked gouda mac and cheese. Round out your meal with locally made wine and beer, as well as specialty cocktails and growlers, all of which are also available to go.

So make your reservation, grab your mask and enjoy a well-deserved night out on the town this fall!
