Main Line Restaurant Week, Philly’s largest suburban dining event, returns this fall with over two dozen of the top restaurants from the Main Line and western suburbs.
Main Line Restaurant Week kicks off Monday, September 23rd and runs through Sunday, September 29th.
Main Line Restaurant Week is organized by AroundMainLine.com. This season marks the highly anticipated seventh run for the twice annual event founded in 2010.
Created by AroundMainLine.com CEO Sarah Lockard, Main Line Restaurant Week celebrates the vibrant dining scene of the Main Line and surrounding western suburbs with prix fixe lunch and dinner menus for the entire seven days. The event showcases top chefs and restaurants partnered with dining values and delicious seasonal dishes.
Participating restaurants across the Main Line and Philadelphia’s western suburbs will offer special, prix fixe lunch and dinner menus showcasing their chefs’ greatest dishes. Menus will feature lunch for $20 and under (two or three courses) and discounted, three-course and four-course dinners (e.g. appetizer, entrée and dessert) priced at $20, $30, $40 and $50 per person. Menus appear on MainLineRestaurantWeek.com as they are finalized by each restaurant.
As the Philadelphia region’s largest suburban dining event, Main Line Restaurant Week is thriving. “Main Line Restaurant Week simply outshines itself season after season. Thanks to the tens of thousands of fans and followers across our successful social media channels, it continues to grow each and every season. Main Line Restaurant Week is now regarded as the top community dining event in the western burbs. And, this fall we have the most exceptional group of restaurants we have ever had. This is the crème de la crème of who’s who on the suburban dining scene,” beamed Lockard.
“Each and every season, we boast a very fine and diverse group of the burbs best restaurants and chefs—and the menus coming in are simply terrific, seasonal values across the board. The Gables at Chadds Ford and Wayne’s The Silverspoon Restaurant have particularly exciting menus for fall—with highlights at The Silverspoon including Smoked Corn Chowder, Autumn Panzanella and Warm Cheese Doughnuts. The Gables boasts Pumpkin Ravioli, Butternut Squash Soup, their famous Chocolate Banana Cake and more! Our foodies are in for the best Main Line Restaurant Week ever.”
Main Line Restaurant Week is proud to welcome back OpenTable as the official reservation partner.

Hospitality Partner: Crowne Plaza Valley Forge
An exciting new aspect of Main Line Restaurant Week this season introduces the Crowne Plaza Valley Forge as the official Hospitality Partner.
King of Prussia’s premier hotel, the Crowne Plaza will be offering discounted room rates on Thursday, September 19th (the evening of the Main Line Restaurant Week kickoff party at Ralph’s), and throughout the entire seven days of Restaurant Week. And, the discounted room rates include a complimentary breakfast for two the next morning at the Plaza’s popular, Stirling’s Restaurant.
Stirling’s is a new participant of Main Line Restaurant Week this season offering both discounted lunch and dinner prix fixe menus.
“We are always looking to expand our presence in King of Prussia with Main Line Restaurant Week, so introducing a hospitality partner this season just made sense. And we love KoP, so why not make a day of it? Shop at the mall, dine at one of our nine nifty King of Prussia (participating) restaurants and then stay at the Crowne Plaza. ‘Keep it in KoP’ is an initiative we are working on and this is a way we can continue to foster our support of our incredible KoP contingency of clients, contacts and colleagues,” explained Lockard.
