ART MUSEUM RESTAURANT WEEK

Now that Summer is upon us, there’s no better time than the present to enjoy amazing food and explore one of the many exciting neighborhoods Philly has to offer. And in the spirit of both, why not check out the Art Museum neighborhood’s Restaurant Week?!

From June 11-16 and 18-23, explore the vibrant summer flavors around the Art Museum area. Participating restaurants are offering prix fixe multi-course menus ranging from $15-$35 per person. Lucky for you, In Between Rivers braved the heat to scout some favorites for our IBR Insiders

Looking for bold, traditional Mexican flavors to spice up those hot summer nights? Then La Calaca Feliz is the place for you. Chef Timothy Spinner’s hand-crafted menu blends seasonal ingredients with Mexican favorites. Or, if you can’t beat the heat why not cool down with magical margaritas?

La Calaca Feliz is offering a special $25/person Art Museum Restaurant Week dinner menu featuring enticing entrees like ceviche con fresa and baja fish tacos. Two courses and a dessert are included in this special fixed menu.

Fairmount’s London Grill features upscale New American cuisine and has a reputation for innovative menu options. For instance, their Restaurant Week lunch menu boasts both creative dishes like Swordfish Club sandwiches and Duck Salads alongside traditional twists like Meatball Sliders. Even better, they’ll let you swap out your prix fixe lunch starter for a glass of Chardonnay. Take that, soup and salad!

London Grill will offer $15 lunch and $25 dinner menus.

Seek out some southern hospitality at SOUTH, a new southern American and New Orleans inspired Jazz bar contributing to the revival of North Broad street. Enjoy their open kitchen concept, large dining hall, and maybe even treat yourself to some great oysters. Better yet, six nights a week SOUTH hosts exciting jazz performances live in their Jazz Parlor.

So jazz up your restaurant week with a $35 dinner menu (not available on Father’s Day). In Between Rivers is excited to try the Blue Crab Toast, Duck Confit Gumbo, and Braised Short-Rib Pot Roast!

Round out your Art Museum Restaurant Week experience and get your BBQ-loving hands dirty at Gyu-Kaku Japanese BBQ. Patrons sit happily around a grill and cook their own food, making this Japanese style BBQ haven is the perfect group outing or date night. For Art Museum Restaurant Week, Gyu-Kaku is offering $15 lunch and $25 dinner combos featuring enticing options like NY strip steak, pork belly miso, harami miso skirt steak, or garlic calamari. So  “grill, sip, love, and be your own chef.”
