Germantown Avenue in Chestnut Hill.

Media, Chestnut Hill and Atlantic City will all host Restaurant Weeks simultaneously during the first week of March. As with most iterations of the event, eateries from each town have come together to set aside time to provide prix-fixe meals for ostensibly lower-than-usual prices. (As we found out while analyzing King of Prussia's "#dineKOP" picks, that isn't always the case.)


However, if you live in any of the aforementioned areas, it might be worth extracting yourself from hibernation to spend a night on the town. 

Media's Restaurant Week(s) began Sunday, Feb. 22, through Thursday, Feb. 26, and returns Sunday, March 1, through Thursday, March 5. Their deal includes three- to five-course meals for $30. Margaret Kuo's, Spasso Italian Grill, Iron Hill Brewery, La Belle Epoque Wine Bistro, Temaki Sushi Bar and more will participate.

Chestnut Hill will run specials Sunday, March 1, through Thursday, March 5, and Sunday, March 8, through Thursday, March 12. Free parking is available after 6 p.m. Sunday-Thursday, and diners can enter to win a $100 Chestnut Hill gift certificate at any participating establishment.

Participating eateries include Tavern on the Hill, Heirloom, Night Kitchen BakeryMica, McNally's and more. They will serve $15 lunch and/or $35 dinner menus.

As for Atlantic City, the much-maligned region will serve specials Sunday, March 1, through Saturday, March 7. Plenty of celebri-chef establishments like Stephen Starr's Buddakan and Continental, Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill, Guy Fieri's Chophouse and Wolfgang Puck American Grille will participate alongside local names. Dinners go for $33.15 and lunches for $15.15 where applicable.
