For those who avoid West Philly during the school year when it’s infested with Penn and Drexel students, the upcoming summer University Dining Days offers double the incentive to venture over the Schuylkill. Modeled after Restaurant Week, the discount dining promotion offers three tiers of three-course prix fixe meals - a $15, a $25 and a $30 - from Thursday July 23 through Thursday July 30 at participating restaurants. Of course, all the places you really want to try - Distrito, Marigold, Pod - are on the $30 list, but if you really want to know if a restaurant is offering a deal, check out these tips to sucker-free Restaurant Week dining from Grub Street Boston. They hold true even without the funny accent.
