University City Dining Days

In the lull of midsummer, who wants to stand in a steamy kitchen trying to figure out what to make for dinner?  During University City's Dining Days (July 18th - August 1st), let one of West Philadelphia's various restaurants do the cooking for you! Venture out of the house to explore the neighborhood's exciting culinary offerings, which are like a trip around the world. From Ethiopian to oysters, craft beer to BBQ, sushi to spaghetti, and pizza to pad Thai, you can indulge in pretty much any cuisine that suits your fancy. Different restaurants will offer choices of a $15, $25 and $35 fixed price menu, so you can even go out for multiple meals without putting too much of a hurt on your wallet.

If we had our choice, we'd pick the wood fired pizzas and fresh brewed beer at Dock Street Brewery ($15), the wildly spicy fare at Han Dynasty ($25), or the creative Mexican snacks at Distrito ($35). But with over 25 restaurants participating in this 3-courses, 3-prices special, you'll no doubt find an option that inspires you to cross the river and find a great bite to eat.
