Dine for Less in East Passyunk

The restaurant and bar scene in East Passyunk, about 1.5 miles from your 1500 Locust apartment, has exploded in recent years. To celebrate that growth, the district started an annual Restaurant Week, which returns this month bigger and better.

Through March 9, enjoy prix-fixe, three-course lunch and dinner specials at 26 eateries throughout the South Philadelphia neighborhood. East Passyunk Restaurant Week offers something for diners with all tastes: From Filipino to French and Italian to Indian, the lineup offers a diverse jaunt around the world, just minutes from your 1500 Locust apartment. And with price points at $15, $25 or $35, this is a great opportunity to enjoy high-quality cuisine for half the cost.

Here are a few of the standouts:

 

Pistola’s del Sur: Located 1.5 miles from your 1500 Locust apartment, Pistola’s del Sur is a lively Mexican bar and restaurant known for its tacos and tequila. The spot is serving $15 Restaurant Week lunch specials, starting with tortilla soup or salad, followed by a taco, enchilada or Cubano sandwich and finished up with an order of churros.

 

Bing Bing Dim Sum: Dive into a $25 Chinese dinner at Bing Bing, 1.5 miles from your 1500 Locust apartment. The first course includes a choice of several types of dumplings or salmon and edamame, while the second serves up fried cauliflower, cucumber salad or pork egg rolls. Save room for the last round, which includes mushroom chow fun, chicken sausage congee or mapo tofu.

 

Mamma Maria: On the $35 dinner menu is Mamma Maria, 1.5 miles from your 1500 Locust apartment. If Italian is your favorite, this is the place to be for East Passyunk Restaurant Week, as Mamma Maria offers a wide range of options for each of its courses. Start the meal with antipasto, penne pasta and soup or salad, followed by eggplant parm, chicken, pork or flounder, all served with sides. Top of your meal with a handmade dessert of the day.
