AroundMainLine.com is throwing a fantastic launch party for the first ever Main Line Restaurant Week at Susanna Foo’s Gourmet Kitchen in Radnor July 22nd! In what promises to be one of the Main Line’s hottest summer events, guests will be treated to complimentary hors d’oeuvres, amazing drink specials and a festive atmosphere—with the suburbs top chefs and restaurant owners in attendance.
For more than 25 years, Susanna Foo has changed the paradigm of Chinese food melding traditional Chinese foods with classical French techniques. With two cookbooks and two internationally known restaurants, Chef Foo is a two-time James Beard Award winner and is widely recognized as one of America’s top Chinese chefs. Many Asian cuisine aficionados credit Foo with having brought Chinese food into the modern realm. In November 2006, she opened Susanna Foo Gourmet Kitchen in Radnor—now one of the Main Line’s most successful and respected restaurants.
Susanna Foo’s is one of dozens of local restaurants across the Main Line and suburban region who will be participating in the Philadelphia suburb’s largest dining event ever this fall. The inaugural Main Line Restaurant Week will run from Monday September 27th through Sunday October 3rd. MLRW is created and organized by AroundMainLine.com.
Participating restaurants will offer special, prix-fixe menus showcasing their chefs’ greatest dishes. Menus will feature discounted, three-course dinners (e.g. appetizer, entrée and dessert) priced at $15, $20, $30 or $40 per person. The week also includes a special calendar of food-themed events, including AroundMainLine.com’s 2nd Anniversary Birthday Bash at Gullifty’s in Rosemont, a special Wednesday Night Whinos at Dettera Restaurant and Wine Bar in Ambler, and a fun Monday Night Meetup in Malvern—hosted by The Desmond—and more. To stay informed of developing party details, be sure to join us on Facebook and Twitter to get the latest.
Our fun summer MLRW kickoff party at Susanna Foo’s will offer AML friends and fans and participating restaurants a chance to meet and mingle in anticipation of the fall dining event. The event is free and open to everyone 21 and over. It promises to be a night to remember—and the perfect celebration to set the tone for a very successful Main Line Restaurant Week fall 2010!
