Looking for a Restaurant Week pick for tonight? Hustle and get that 8 p.m. table for two at Amada. It’s one of the solid Restaurant Week performers and a prime-time table is tough to beat.



Not interested in Restaurant Week, how about Lobster Week. That's what Matyson is offering tonight through Thursday.

Check out their special five course, $50 menu.

For Lunch, Consider an Amada Cheesesteak

amada-cheesesteak

As we’ve mentioned before, one of our biggest laments about the current state of the cheesesteak is the lack of beef. At too many places, a cheesesteak is north of $9 for way too little steak and not a lick of creativity.

On the other hand there’s the Amada Cheesesteak on the lunch menu at Jose Garces’ first restaurant in Old City. At Amada, the cheesesteak is shaved ribeye, caramelized onions, a molten Mahón cheese sauce and truffled mushrooms. Yes, the sandwich costs $14, but there’s a whole lot more going on here than just cheap beef  and fake cheese.
