"Main Line Today Restaurant Week will be a 14-day celebration of our region's top chefs, restaurants, and purveyors," said Main Line Today Associate Publisher Marie Edwards. "We want to make a genuine difference to the smaller and independent mom-and-pop restaurants that have been profoundly affected by the pandemic. We spent months talking to our culinary community and gathering input to see how we can best offer our support. We're proud to have the community's support as we present something we hope will be truly memorable and impactful—not just this year but in years to come."
For its inaugural year, the Main Line restaurant community joins forces with local media and businesses to showcase the culinary talent that makes the Main Line and western suburbs 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 particular focus on independent and locally operated restaurants.

In addition to the restaurants, the program also supports the local farmers and purveyors hit hardest by the pandemic.

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.
