Edgewater residents are well aware that Philadelphia is certainly a foodie’s dream, full of every kind of cuisine from French to Filipino and everything in between. And now that Center City Restaurant Week is here, which is when participating restaurants will offer three-course dinner meals for $35 per person and lunch meals for $20 per person, Edgewater residents have the chance to sample them all until Feb. 3 for a fraction of the cost.
