Prices have increased slightly this year to support restaurant recovery. Three-course dinners are $40 per person, and lunches are $25 per person, not including tax, gratuity and beverages.

While there are options for both indoor and outdoor dining, restaurants are also encouraging diners to take advantage of takeout options and enjoy their meals in local parks and outdoor spaces like Rittenhouse Square, Dilworth Park and John F. Collins Park. 

Cocktails made with Maker's Mark Bourbon and Hornitos Tequila will be available for guests to purchse, as well. There will be discounted parking for $9 or less available at participating Interpark, Parkway, Philadelphia Parking Authority or LAZ garages. Digital parking vouchers will be available online, as well.

Patrons also will have the opportunity to win dinner for a year by entering to win online.
