“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,” said NLBID Executive Director Kris Kennedy in a statement.

Kennedy continued: “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.”

Cuisines for the 2023 Northern Liberties Restaurant Week include Vietnamese, Armenian, Italian, American, Chinese, Thai, Mexican and much more. A full list of participating spots offering everything from pizzas to salads to sushi to skewers and everything in between is available online. 

Options span indoor dining, outdoor dining and take-out, all decided by each restaurant.

“Come out and celebrate our diverse food options with Northern Liberties Restaurant Week this January,” finishes Kennedy. “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.”
