Ambler Restaurant Week
January 21 -28, 2018
Ambler Main Street hosts its winter Restaurant Week from January 21 - 28. 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
$39 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 hanger steak and handmade ricotta cavatelli. 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, but because he uses only the freshest ingredients, we won't know the full menu until Monday. If you're planning to visit, don't miss the live blues music in the bar on Friday and Saturday night.
COSTA DELI & GINA'S AMAZING CUPCAKES
901 E. Butler Pk
$11.95 "Steak Special" & Milkshake Combo | Buy 2 Get 1 Free Cupcakes
It may not be a prix fixe menu, but the Restaurant Week specials at Costa Deli & Gina's Amazing Cupcakes are definitely worth checking out. First, a $11.95 combo of a steak special and "The Best Milkshake in Town" is a bargain. Then don't miss out on the cupcakes: buy two, get one free all week.
424 S. Bethlehem Pk, Fort Washington
$24 Per Person | 3 Courses
It's a short drive from Downtown Ambler to Cantina Feliz (just two miles south on Bethlehem Pike), but for lovers of Mexican food, it's worth the trip. For Ambler Restaurant Week, Cantina Feliz is offering a three-course menu with five appetizers and seven entrees - Baja fish tacos are always a good choice - to choose from, plus dulce de leche ice cream sandwiches for dessert.
34 E. Butler Ave
Though not announced yet, we're excited to see the creativity on the Restaurant Week menu of Gypsy Blu, one of Ambler's most inventive restaurants. We can get a taste of their offerings from their January Restaurant Week menu: a six-ounce New York strip steak with shrimp and a black seabass filet in sage lemon brown butter sauce.

Bridget's Steakhouse is one of Ambler's premier fine dining destinations, and we're looking forward to the prime selections sure to be offered during Restaurant Week.
FROM THE BOOT
