Philadelphia’s Old City District is showcasing its thriving dining scene with the debut of the largest restaurant program in at least 20 years. Old City Eats debuted on June 16 and will run every Thursday through Aug. 25, from 5–8 p.m. There are 34 participating restaurants and bars that will offer a selection of small plates half-off, plus $5 drink specials, off-menu dishes, seasonal cocktails and even chef collaborations.
Old City Eats will spotlight the best of historic Philadelphia’s culinary scene, which now includes over 80 restaurants, bars, coffee shops and other eateries. From ever popular mainstays like Buddakan, Amada and Continental, to notable newcomers like The Olde Bar, The Little Lion and Common Wealth Old City, to constant trendsetters like Fork, High Street on Market and Han Dynasty, Old City Eats features food, cocktails and atmospheres that that will appeal to every taste.
“Our focus is spotlighting the neighborhood’s impressive and evolving list of dining options,” says Old City District Executive Director Job Itzkowitz. “With 34 restaurants and bars participating, there’s something to appeal to every palate, including Szechuan, Thai, Afghani, Italian, Cuban, British and other global cuisines. We have as diverse of a culinary scene as anywhere in the city.”
