6 Center City Restaurant Week Picks With Great Drinks

6 Center City Restaurant Week Picks With Great Drinks

From Sunday, January 19 through Friday, January 24 and again Monday, January 26 through January 31, more than a hundred restaurants around the city will participate in Center City District Restaurant Week. Each evening (with the exception of Saturday, January 25), you’ll be able to score a three-course meal for $35 ($20 for a three-course lunch). We searched through all the options, and came up with six spots where your prix fixe deal can be matched with great drinks. Make your reservations while you still can.

Rosa Blanca: Along with such Cuban and Caribbean inspired comforts like coconut conch fritters, empanadas, ceviches, and ropa vieja, this brand new spot from celeb-chef Jose Garces offers more than 60 different types of rum collected from various rum-producing regions around the world, and an extensive list of cocktails. (707 Chestnut St.; 215-925-5555)

Brauhuas Schmitz: If German brews are your thing, this South Street restaurant is where you want to be. Jeremy Nolan’s “new German cooking” brings four courses full of wursts, brats and spätzle, all of which were practically invented to go with beer (718 South St.; 267-909-8814)

Sutton’s Parlor: This Rittenhouse newcomer appears to be pulling out the stops for its Restaurant Week debut, offering plates like a classic Caesar salad prepared table-side; venison tartare; escargot with Herbs de Provence and bone marrow butter; and lobster Thermidor. Classic cocktails squeezed, juiced, shaken and mixed to order from the bar make a perfect accompaniment for the old school dishes. (40 S. 19th St.; 215-800-1217)

Ristorante Panorama: A huge menu of appetizers, pastas, entrees and dishes of all kinds is yours for the choosing at this Old City trattoria. Pick your pairing for each of three courses from the world’s largest wine cruvinet system, featuring more than 150 wines by the glass (14 N. Front St.; 215-922-7800).

Route 6: Eat like you’re on summer vacation in New England at this Stephen Starr spot that brings American coastal cuisine to North Broad Street. Restaurant Week menus offer everything from shrimp cocktail and clam chowder to crab cakes and lobster rolls. (600 N Broad St.; 215-391-4600)

Red Owl: Newly appointed Executive Chef Jorge Chicas plans to roll out his big menu overhaul immediately following Restaurant Week, but while the two-week celebration of dining out is on he will focus more on farm-fresh American tavern fare with dishes like clams casino, grilled Bronzino, hanger steaks and more. At the bar ace bartender Paul Dellevigne is putting his personal touch on Red Owl’s cocktails. (433 Chestnut St.; 215-923-2267)
