Ambler Restaurant Week
January 29 - February 5, 2018
Ambler Main Street hosts the first of two 2018 Restaurant Week events January 29 through February 5. It's an opportunity to taste some of the best restaurants in downtown Ambler and the surrounding community with prix fixe menus, special offers, and chef's selections that are only available twice a year.
Crave Montco brings you our complete guide to Ambler Restaurant Week, including the must-try meals at all of the participating restaurants:
DETTERA RESTAURANT & WINE BAR
129 E. Butler Ave
$36 Per Person | 3 Courses
Dettera Restaurant & Wine Bar is offering a prix fixe menu that includes some of the restaurant's favorite dishes, like grilled skirt steak or sweet potato ravioli. And with more than 40 wines by the glass and 120 by the bottle, you'll find the perfect pairing for every course.
THE LUCKY WELL
111 E. Butler Ave
Chef Chad Rosenthal is preparing his famous barbecue for Ambler Restaurant Week. Instead of a prix fixe menu, The Lucky Well is offering its signature meats and sides at discounted rates. And don't miss the live blues music in the bar on Friday and Saturday night.
