Restaurant Week Goes North

Go North, young man (or, uh, Woman). And when we say “North,” we really mean it.

Yes, even farther north than Northern Liberties.

Three of Philly’s fastest-gentrifying neighborhoods, Fishtown, East Kensington and Port Richmond want to lure Center City diners away from their Stephen Starr and Jose Garces, to a part of town where a new generation of creative, quality restaurants has taken hold.

The list of participants includes Bistro Juliana, Ida Mae’s Bruncherie and the Green Rock Tavern—to name just a few. Check out the official page for a complete list and more details.

Unlike the still-expensive $35 of Center City’s Restaurant Week, Fishtown’s prices will stick around the $10 to $30 range. So you can get out of your comfort zone, eat well and save a few bucks in the process.

Fishtown’s Restaurant Week is slated for April 25 through April 30, so keep an eye out. Thanks to for the heads up.
