King of Prussia’s Restaurant Week is back again, giving hungry diners more options to try something new at more affordable prices.

The annual King of Prussia Restaurant Week will run March 11-17, offering prix fixe menus from area restaurants, priced at $10, $15 or $20 for lunch and $20, $30 and $40 for dinner.

About 33 fine-dining restaurants will offer prix fix menus, and 11 fast-casual restaurants and over 27 retailers will participate in donation days during the second annual KOP Shops event.

New restaurants continue to be added every year as more open, including eateries by Darden Restaurants and Fox Restaurant Concepts that opened last year.

The weeklong event first kicked off in 2015 as dineKOP and was renamed this year to King of Prussia Restaurant Week. King of Prussia District last year also debuted the KOP Shops for CHOP shopping event.

Proceeds are donated to The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia’s 115,000-square-foot specialty care center, which opened in 2015. About $58,000 has been raised for CHOP KOP.

King of Prussia Restaurant Week began as an initiative to generate awareness around the area’s booming dining scene, which included the King of Prussia Mall’s expansion and the development at Village at Valley Forge and the King of Prussia Town Center.

It’s a win-win for restaurants and diners.

“For the restaurants, KOP Restaurant Week falls during a time when the restaurants typically need a boost,” said Rachel Ammon, marketing and communications director at King of Prussia District. “It’s also a wonderful chance for restaurants to showcase their service and best dishes, and turn a one-time customer into a regular.”

Diners can try out a new restaurant or a restaurant that may normally be out of their price range.

“The prix-fixe menus are incredibly affordable and feature the best items from each restaurant’s repertoire,” Ammon said. “There’s also the added bonus of knowing that a portion of the proceeds benefits Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia’s KOP Specialty Care & Surgery Center.”
