You Hungry? Main Line Restaurant Week!


Main Line Restaurant Week is here!!
 

Beginning with the kickoff party in the uber-relaxing Redhound Grill, Main Line restaurant Week is off to a delicious start!

For the 5th time, participating restaurants across the Main Line and Philadelphia's western suburbs will offer special, prix fixe menus showcasing their chefs' greatest dishes. Special menus will feature discounted lunches as well as three-course dinners (e.g. appetizer, entrée and dessert) priced at $20, $30, $40, or $50 per person. Be sure to check out the festivities on Facebook and Twitter to get the latest.

I sampled wares at venues to check out what restaurants are offering for the foodie week, and let me let you, I was not disappointed. With delightful dishes from all over the area, your taste buds will be sooooo happy! Italian dishes, fresh seafood, pizza, steaks, classic, sushi, fondue..this week is a food lovers’ paradise.

I visited the KoP Melting Pot and I was amazed at the offers for Restaurant Week. Plus, they have cool celebration packages you can on to make any night out into an event- with bears, chocolates, or other wonderful additions.

We began with the traditional Swiss fondue- creamy, cheesy Swiss and Emmenthal blended with garlic, nutmeg and sherry with bread cubes, apples (my fave) and veggies were a wonderful way to begin. I also had the Strawberry Blonde martini (soooo crisp and yummy), then onto a salad with bleu cheese and a delightful raspberry dressing, plus roasted pecans over fresh greens.
 

Then onto the main course- we had plates of chicken and shrimp to dip into the coq au vin and it was delicious with the many sauces.  And dessert was the Flaming Turtle- pecans and caramel and chocolate, all swirled together with delicious strawberry, banana, cheesecake, brownie, and marshmallow dippers. Heaven!

 

You can also win all kinds of goodies this week – jewelry, nights out, dinner, so check out the participating restaurants and go out and enjoy!

 

So join other hungry locals for Main Line Restaurant Week September 24-28!
