NEWTOWN SQUARE, PA — Main Line Today and Today Media announced the 2022 Main Line Today Restaurant Week will run February 21st through March 6th, 2022. The 14-day culinary celebration will bring together and showcase the talents of top chefs, restaurants and purveyors in Montgomery, Delaware and Chester counties. Participating restaurants will offer special three-course prix fixe menus for lunch ($26.95, plus tax, beverage and gratuity) and dinner ($39.95, plus tax, beverage and gratuity). Restaurants can choose what works best for them, offering lunch, dinner, or both—dine-in or takeout. Foodies from across the tri-state area are invited to save the date, make their reservations, and come hungry for the tastiest weeks of the spring.
Early sign-ups have netted some of the most celebrated names in the Main Line region, including Amis Trattoria, Autograph Brasserie, Davio’s Northern Italian Steakhouse, Estia Taverna, Founding Farmers, Fox and Hounds Pub at the Desmond, The Greystone Oyster Bar, Jasper’s Backyard, Limoncello, Lola’s Garden, Mikado Thai Pepper, Pizzeria Vetri, King of Prussia, Rosalie, Savona, Terrain Cafe, Verbena BYOB and more. Registration for area restaurants is still open. In February, Main Line Today will host participating restaurants and purveyors at a special kickoff party, where guests will experience great food, drinks and more. Main Line Today Restaurant Week is supported by sponsors Firstrust Bank, Comcast Business, Tito’s Handmade Vodka and others.
“Main Line Today Restaurant Week is a 14-day celebration of our region’s top chefs, restaurants and purveyors,” said Main Line Today Associate Publisher Marie Edwards. “We couldn’t be happier with the final list of restaurants that really showcase the amazing culinary talent in every pocket and corner of the Main Line and Western Suburbs. We want to make a real and genuine difference to the smaller and independent mom-and-pop restaurants that have been profoundly affected by the pandemic. This second-year event was timed to continue to support the restaurants in our own backyard that are most in need as we enter the spring season. We are counting down the days to opening day on February 21st. We hope to see everyone out there supporting these amazing chefs, culinary teams and restaurants that are the backbone of our communities.”
“Let’s all do our part in helping our restaurants stay open and serving us the great meals we have enjoyed, go out and eat,” said Visit Delco PA CMP, Director of Meetings and Events Lou Marrocco.
Main Line Today Restaurant Week will feature some of the most celebrated names in the Main Line region, spanning over three counties and dozens of townships. The 30+ restaurants that will participate this year reads like a who’s who for the suburban dining scene, with local-based hospitality groups, award-winning restaurants and nationally recognized chefs.
For its second year, the Main Line restaurant community is joining forces with local media and businesses to showcase the culinary talent that makes the Main Line and western suburbs such a diverse and rich dining destination. Efforts are designed to rally diners and foodies from around the region to support the most notable restaurants, bars, eateries, BYOBs and takeout spots. While all restaurants in Delaware, Chester and Montgomery counties are invited to participate, there is a special focus on independent and locally operated restaurants.
Restaurants have the flexibility to offer the special priced lunch option, dinner option, or both. Restaurants can also offer services based on their needs and availability, including indoor, outdoor, dine-in, take-out, etc. Please contact and confirm service with restaurants directly. Menus for the above locations are being added daily to the website, under each individual restaurant listing.

In addition to the restaurants, the program also supports the local farmers and purveyors hit hardest by the pandemic. The latter will have a chance to shine at the Purveyor Showcase, held in mid-February (details to be announced). Participating eateries will receive tickets to this exclusive event, so they can connect with purveyors, network with other chefs and restaurants, and get energized for the days ahead.
Main Line Today states it is also proud to support and collaborate with Chester County Food Bank through Main Line Today Restaurant Week to bring continued awareness of local community food needs. For more about this important charity, visit chestercountyfoodbank.org.
