Prix Fixe Menus in Philly

Advertise with dosage MAGAZINE

The fixed-price or the prix fixe menu has always been a thing but has become very popular in the Philly restaurant scene over the last year. The practice of offering carefully curated multi-course meals at a designated total price, minus gratuity, is a great way for diners to engage the dining experience.

Prix fixe menus also prove to be financially sound for the restaurant. It’s obvious why there is a growing number of restaurants that are adding a prix fixe menu to their culinary offerings. Here are a few restaurants and their offerings to take note of.

Townsend EPX
Chef Townsend Wentz and his Townsend EPX restaurant and bar on East Passyunk Avenue have a full prix fixe menu. After a two-year hiatus, the award-winning French bistro offers a $100 per person six-course tasting menu. The menu, curated by Chef Wentz, includes Roasted Venison Loin, Beef Tenderloin Tartare, Seared Sea Scallop, Skate, Foie Gras Stuffed Pheasant, and Valrhona Chocolate Soufflé. 

A Mano
If you like what Chef Townsend put together for you at Townsend EPX, then head over to his Italian BYOB eatery, A Mano.

A Mano has two prix fixe options. Diners can select from a four-course family-style menu for $68 or a pasta family three-course menu for $48. Chef Townsend has assembled a selection of dishes that include Pork Belly Agrodolce, Burrata, Pumpkin Gnocchi with pancetta saba, Pasta Alla Chitarra with blistered cherry tomatoes, olives, and anchovy, Grilled Branzino prepared with charred broccoli, oil cured olives, and salsa rosa, and for dessert, Lemon Olive Oil Cake with fresh blueberries and buttermilk cream.
