Restaurateurs and officials of the Center City District promoted Restaurant Week here on the streets of Philadelphia by giving away free samples. Kristen Linker is manager of marketing and events:
“This time around for September we have over 125 restaurants participating, and you can go to any of these restaurants and get a three-course dinner for only $35. Or you can also go to some of them and get a three-course lunch for only $20.”
This upcoming Restaurant Week is actually two weeks long — it takes place September 12th through 24th (except for Saturday nights).

Linker says this is the 14th semi-annual promotion, which they’ve been doing for seven years:
“We do have a few new restaurants participating, and we have our highest number to date of participating restaurants.”
