Northern Liberties Business Improvement District announces the return of Northern Liberties Restaurant Week from Friday, January 27 to Sunday, February 5, 2023. The city’s hottest NEW restaurant week to hit the food scene is back with new dates, more restaurants, new restaurants, updated price points, indoor and outdoor options, take-out and delivery, and tons of the city’s best eats! Moved to winter to support restaurants during the colder months, Northern Liberties Restaurant Week is back with nearly two dozen of the neighborhood’s biggest names that will offer two course or more lunches for $10 or $15, and three or more course dinners for $15, $25 and $40.

Look for special features and signature favorite dishes, outdoor options, artful and colorful dining rooms, cocktail features, and much more. For outdoor options, several Northern Liberties restaurants have patios, sidewalk seating, courtyards – and yes, the Igloos at Figo even join the line-up this year. Book your reservation and enjoy a diversity of cuisines, vibes and settings. New restaurants joining the line-up this year will include Nourish Cafe, Hikari Sushi,  Las Cazuelas, The Winston, The Shake Seafood, D’Oliva EVOO Pizza and Grill and others to be announced. Neighborhood favorites will also include Añejo Philly, Pera Turkish Cuisine,  El Camino, Cantina Dos Segundos,  Figo Ristorante,  Apricot Stone, Urban Village, Bagels and Co., Bourbon and Branch, Standard Tap and more.

“Northern Liberties Business Improvement District is proud to bring back Northern Liberties Restaurant Week,” said NLBID Executive Director Kris Kennedy. “Northern Liberties continues to gain popularity as one of the hottest food destinations in the city – with at least ten more restaurants, cafes and food-oriented businesses set to grand open in 2023. Our restaurant week is a celebration of all the energy, creativity and talent. It is a fantastic way to experience and show off that growth. Come and try a spot you have never been to, or experience your favorite places all over again. This is an affordable way to get out for the spring with friends and family. We hope to see you there.

Kennedy added, “Come out and celebrate our diverse food options with Northern Liberties Restaurant Week this January. Most eateries are still recovering from COVID disruptions and rising food costs, so this is a big and important two weeks for them. If you’ve ever wanted to try one of the places on this year’s list, now is the time!”

For its third year, Northern Liberties Restaurant Week will offer a taste for every palate – with cuisine from around the country and around the world including Vietnamese, Armenian, Italian, American, Chinese, Thai, Mexican and more. Look for everything from skewers to salads, Philly’s best tacos to comfort food classics, big steaks to big salads, and everything in between. Some restaurants will participate in lunch, some in dinner and others both! The focus is on dine-in options for both indoor and outdoor, plus look for select options for take-out, delivery, and more. Outdoor options will include for the first time festive, heated Igloo dining, plus outdoor dining in permanent courtyards, sidewalks, rooftops and patios. Reservations are strongly encouraged for this first time event, and they can be made with each participating restaurant.

The website will house all the info hungry diners need: a map showing restaurant locations, menus, price points, reservation links and more. 2023 menus are now going live so people have ample time to plan out their eating adventure day by day. Reservations are encouraged and can be made through the Northern Liberties Restaurant Week website using links to each establishment’s reservation platform. Please see each restaurant for their safety and health protocols.
