We’ve all grown accustomed to the “cancelled” signs on all of our upcoming Facebook events; however, there’s one event series that is continuing as planned, and it’s a fall favorite! Every September, dozens of restaurants in Center City Philadelphia, all just minutes from your The Hamilton apartment, open their doors for multi-course, discounted meals as part of Philadelphia Restaurant Week. The series, Sept. 13-25, will include more than 70 participants, many of them among the city’s most award-winning culinary standouts. Some will serve both lunch and dinner options, many will have outdoor dining available and, for the first time, diners can get Restaurant Week meals to go. While the event may look a bit different this year, the taste—and savings!—will be just as outstanding.
With so many mouthwatering participants, it can be hard to figure out where to go. If you’re looking to prioritize social distancing, Harper’s Garden, less than one mile from your The Hamilton apartment, is a good bet. The space features an expansive outdoor garden that’s popular in any weather and any time of year, and is an especially good find for those wanting to enjoy a night out while still prioritizing safety. While many venues near your The Hamilton apartment have launched outdoor dining, Harper’s Garden’s space has always been a staple of the restaurant, so you can trust they know how to navigate outdoor dining—and you can sit back and enjoy the view!
The patio is expertly decorated with seasonal, flowering plants, providing a prime background for the meal. Like its décor, Harper’s Garden features seasonal, locally sourced ingredients. With apps like cheese and veggie boards and entrees that include duck, fish and veggie pasta, the restaurant aims for simple presentation with loads and loads of flavor. Top it all off with its extensive international wine selection or its signature cocktail menu, a portion of which goes to the Hospitality Assistance Response of PA Fund, which supports hospitality workers impacted by the pandemic. And best yet, you can also grab your cocktails to go if you choose to take your meal back to your The Hamilton apartment.
So make your reservation, grab your mask and enjoy a well-deserved night out on the town this fall!
