While University City is still known primarily for its world-class educational institutions, over the past decade the area’s thriving restaurant scene has made it a foodie destination in its own right. University City Dining Days gives extra incentive for neighbors and visitors alike to enjoy local eateries both new and established, with three-course prix-fixe dinners ranging from $15 to $35 per person. Options range from fast-casual burger and health food restaurants such as Bobby's Burger Palace and Thai Singha House to high-end, celebrity-chef-driven establishments like Pod, Walnut Street Cafe and Distrito.
