Tonight: Where to Eat for Cheap


There is a wealth of options available for thrifty diners looking for a dinner out tonight. For starters, Han Dynasty in Old City is serving up its popular first Monday of the month $25 tasting dinner. The enormous meal features a parade of dishes, one after the other, that are not typically featured on the menu most nights. Seating is limited to the restaurant’s communal table, and dinner starts at 7 p.m.

Later, Amis, Marc Vetri and company’s trattoria on 13th St., hosts its monthly Industry Night, with complimentary food and discounted drinks for hospitality folk, starting at 11 p.m and going until 1 a.m. A pay stub from a restaurant gets you in.

The South Philly Bar and Grill will launch its new line of upmarket cheesesteaks tonight from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. They include roasted garlic, habanero, Gorgonzola and smoked gouda and are all available tonight for $5 with the purchase of a Yuengling. Or should the mood strike, try all of them in a flight for $12.
