Another day, another alternative to Restaurant Week. Today, as part of our Restaurant Week counter-programming, wherein we provide you with a daily option that is not necessarily a part of Restaurant Week, but is still a worthy bargain, we're checking in with Rittenhouse restaurant Meme, which is running a $35 prix-fixe for the entire month of September, every night of the week. The restaurant has a liquor license, but Wednesday nights (tonight!) are BYOB. Here's an idea of what chef-owner David Katz might prepare.
