Frantic because you still haven't made that Restaurant Week reservation you've been really meaning to? Have no fear—this week, Philadelphia's beloved Restaurant Week has expanded its timeframe into thirteen glorious, gluttonous days. This means that unlike other years, there is really no excuse to miss it—you have until this Friday, Jan. 25 to get yourself together and treat yourself to some fine dining.

As per usual, the list of participants is extensive, encompassing everything from the cozy Italian of Little Nonna's to the experimental modern Pan–Asian of Sampan. No matter which cuisine and restaurant you choose, the set price for a three–course dinner is $35 per person. Many restaurants will also feature signature cocktails for the week, though these drinks are typically not included in the standard fare.

What's more, this year many participants are involved in the new and popular lunch option, which, similar to dinner, offers a three–course lunch menu for the fixed price of $20 per person. Not only does this meal option make the event more affordable, but it also nearly doubles the number of possible reservation times at the participating restaurants. 

New additions to the participant list include Bai Wei, a new restaurant at 11th and Race streets serving various Asian cuisines, and Sedition Restaurant and Bar, which serves typical American cuisine.

With two mealtime options and an added full week, this is one of Center City District's most comprehensive Restaurant Week offerings yet. Get on top of it if you haven't already.
