Keep it in the family during Restaurant Week with these Main Line family-owned restaurants you can try from February 26 through March 11.

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

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.

Part of the family-owned Fearless Group, Autograph Brasserie makes guests feel right at home in Wayne. “After my wife died a year and a half ago, my son Oliver got me to visit Autograph Brasserie one night—they became my family,” says artist Justin Snow, who’s a regular at this Main Line favorite.
