PHILADELPHIA - As Philadelphia’s 2022/2023 theater season hits its stride this holiday season, Chef Derek Davis has brought back one of theatergoers’ favorite pre-Covid offerings at his restaurant, Libertine, which is located inside The Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott Philadelphia at 261 S. 13th Street in Center City: the pre- or post-theater dining deal.
Beginning today, guests who show their theater tickets on their phone or printed out while visiting Libertine can enjoy a complimentary dessert to savor in the restaurant or to-go with the purchase of a “Major Commitment,” which is Davis’ menu category for entrees. There are no time limitations, as restaurants often offered pre-theater deals before Covid-19, and guests can also take advantage of this offer after the show. The only caveat is that the ticket date must match the visit date.
“We’ve seen a major uptick in theatergoers joining us for dinner before or after performances over the past couple of weeks, so I thought it was finally time to bring back a pre-theater deal, which was universally beloved before Covid-19’s arrival in March of 2020,” said Davis. “We’re happy to serve theatergoers before or after the shows, so we’ve adjusted the offer from a standard “early bird” discount between 5 and 7 p.m. to one that provides added value to ticket holders before or after the show, with the option to enjoy one of our house-made desserts in the dining room or to-go.”
Libertine’s Pre-or Post-Theater dessert deal will be offered throughout Philadelphia’s 2022/2023 season, which runs through the spring. The restaurant is open from 4 to 10 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays, 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturdays, and from 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. for Sunday Brunch.
