2019 Main Line Restaurant Week

VILLANOVA, Pa. — Villanova University has partnered with the Bryn Mawr Business Association, the Wayne Business Association and Main Line Today magazine for Main Line Restaurant Week, September 16-22, 2019. This marks the second annual restaurant week event. The event was established last year by the University, in partnership with the Bryn Mawr Business Association and the Wayne Business Association.

With dozens of participating restaurants, the inaugural “Villanova Dines Out! Restaurant Week” in November 2018 generated excitement amongst the University and area communities for the many great local dining options—creating an opportunity to expand upon the event in 2019. The new partnership with Main Line Today brings the campus and surrounding communities closer together by celebrating local businesses. So far, more than 50 restaurants have signed on to participate. Restaurants will offer a prix-fixe menu, specials or a percentage discount to any patron who dines out throughout the week.

“We are looking forward to building on last year’s success and continuing to showcase all of the great restaurants we have right here in our backyards,” said Laura Wagoner, Assistant Director of Government & Community Relations at Villanova. “The partnership with these organizations shows how strong the Main Line community is through their overwhelming support for these local businesses.”

“We are also very excited that this year Restaurant Week will coincide with the St. Thomas of Villanova Celebration and Day of Service,” continued Wagoner. “It will be a great opportunity for the thousands of Villanovans that are taking time out to give back to the community to also come out and support our local businesses.”
