Check out some of Philly’s hottest restaurants at a fraction of the usual cost from 5 to 7 p.m. Wednesdays through Aug. 31 as part of the Center City District’s summer Sips program. Appetizers are half-priced and selected drinks are $3-$5 during this special happy hour. Among notable restaurants participating are Georges Perrier associate Chris Scarduzio’s Table 31, ex-Lacroix chef Matt Levin's playful Square Peg and the atmospheric Farmer's Cabinet.

  • Admission: $15.95 for adults and $8.95 for children ages 7 to 11, which includes several small food bites and the free "Philly Insider Eats Sheet." Private tours are also available.
  • Reservations: Yes, reservations are required and can be made online with a Visa, Discover or Mastercard at this Brown Paper Ticket link or by calling 800-838-3006. Please provide a cell or other phone number where we can reach you last-minute when making your reservation.

  • Lenth: You’ll love this 75-minute walking tour about Philly food favorites like cheesesteaks, hoagies and pretzels and the vibrant Reading Terminal Market where they’re sold.
  • Parking: Parking is only $4 for two hours with a purchase of food in the Market if you park in the Parkway Garage – entrance right across from the Market on 12th Street between Arch and Filbert. There are lots of garages around the Market but this is the ONLY one that has this special deal. See Reading Terminal for more about it. Two hours is long enough to do the tour, but not to eat a leisurely meal before or after it. Rates go up to the regular $10 per hour after the first two. Street parking is another option if you can find it but you probably shouldn’t do it at a meter offering less than two hours (since meters are strictly and very efficiently enforced in Philly). You can “feed the meter” in Philly however.
  • Additional Information: The Information Desk, which is right inside the 12th and Filbert corner of the Market. (If you don’t see the Info sign and brochure racks, you’re in the wrong place.):The Taste of Philly food tour is less than half the price and also won’t take up your whole afternoon.
