Restaurant Week: Eat; Drink Cheltenham Offering Fine Cuisine at a Great Value

Last week Glenside Local reported on Cheltenham Township’s First Restaurant Week: Eat; Drink Cheltenham, and now we have more details. The Eat, Drink Cheltenham promotion runs from September 22 to September 29. Restaurant Week is a celebration of Cheltenham’s dining scene, offering three and four-course prix-fixe dinner specials at a great value of $20 to $35 per person. Ten of the best restaurants in Elkins Park and Glenside are participating, and most offer BYOB or full-service bars.

Cheltenham Township’s Economic Development Task Force (EDTF) is a committee focused on helping area businesses thrive. EDTF created Restaurant Week to highlight Cheltenham’s thriving and diverse restaurants and help fund the campaign along with sponsors.

“Eat; Drink Cheltenham is an opportunity to highlight the unique local dining venues in Cheltenham. We hope you will take the opportunity to bring your friends and family out to support our local businesses and find a new favorite meal or restaurant along the way,” said Dwight Pedro Lewis, Chairman of the Cheltenham Township Economic Development Task Force.

Restaurant Week: Eat; Drink Cheltenham (EDC) is funded by Cheltenham Township and the following sponsors Boucher & James Inc., DC Interiors LLC, First Trust Bank, GLP Architects, Jeff Lustig, Jenkintown Building Service and Wisler Pearlstine.

“We are grateful to our volunteers on the Economic Development Task Force who have spent countless hours organizing this event and to our event sponsors, who have graciously underwritten the costs of this event, which will highlight our wonderful local eateries,” said Daniel B. Norris, President of the Cheltenham Township Board of Commissioners
