King of Prussia, Pa.’s own restaurant week has passed the first-year hurdle and will be making a comeback this year with three additional restaurants.
The King of Prussia District launched dineKOP last year, its first foray into the Restaurant Week concept that’s popular in Center City, Old City and East Passyunk Avenue.
dineKOP was the result of a number of restaurants rallying together to “showcase all of the restaurants in the community,” Eric Goldstein, executive director of King of Prussia District (KOP-BID), said last year.
This year’s dineKOP will be held March 7-13, offering prix-fixe menus up to $20 for lunch and up to $40 for dinner from participating restaurants like Cantina Laredo, The Capital Grille and Bahama Breeze.
For the second iteration, KOP-BID has added Bonefish Grill, Grand Lux Café and Chef Luke Palladino‘s LP Steak at the Valley Forge Casino. All three opened last year.
A portion of the proceeds from last year’s dineKOP was donated to The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia’s 115,000-square-foot specialty care center, which opened in 2015.
The KOP-BID donated $11,500 to the specialty care center from participating dineKOP restaurants.
“dineKOP is much more than a restaurant week,” KOP-BID’s Goldstein said of this year’s dineKOP. “It’s a community event for King of Prussia that spotlights our continuously growing dining scene, while supporting children and families in need at CHOP. We were thrilled with its 2015 debut and look forward to an even better restaurant week this year.”
