Main Line Today Restaurant Week is happening from February 26 through March 11, and we have a diverse list of over 40 participating restaurants this year. There’s nothing quite like a family-owned restaurant serving up recipes that have been passed down for generations. Here are a handful of family-owned eateries to check out with your family and friends during Restaurant Week along the Main Line.
La Collina was a family-owned restaurant for 40 years before being sold to a new family who’s now running the show. For Restaurant Week, the eatery offers an extensive four-course menu with plenty to choose from, like branzino, a pasta trio and other elevated Italian dishes.
