The first-ever East Passyunk Restaurant Week is going down from February 24 to March 2, and Eater got an early peek at the 21 restaurants participating, plus what they'll be serving.
The list has a little something for everyone, including old-time favorites like Marra's, Tre Scalini, and Adobe; and the new instant classics like Fond, Will, Stateside, and Le Virtu.
The lineup includes:
·South Philly Bar & Grill
·Cantina Los Caballitos
·Mamma Maria Ristorante
·Da Vinci Ristorante
A few palate-piquing highlights: at Will, Chef Christopher Kearse will be dishing up plates from his new seasonal winter menu, including Whole Roasted Miatake Mushroom with Ricotta, Madeira and Petit Herbs; and Barnegat Light Scallops with Jerusalem Artichoke, Celery and Nasturtium. Over at Le Virtu, expect to taste their house-made charcuterie, Palott cac' e ove (braised egg & cheese croquettes in tomato sauce), and Maccheroni alla mugnaia (hand-pulled single-strand pasta).
And at Izumi, decadent appetizers like Duck and Foie Gras Dumplings followed by a chef's selection of sushi will be followed up by a complimentary dessert, Un Donut with Red Bean Dipping Sauce.
Reservations are officially open, so get on the horn.
