DUNDALK, Md. (WJZ) — It’s the most delicious time of winter. Baltimore Restaurant Week gets underway.
Ron Matz reports this year’s edition is bigger and better than ever.
They’re setting the table at the legendary Costas Inn. This Dundalk dining spot is part of Baltimore Restaurant Week.
“Restaurant Week is a great, great time of the year. It’s a good opportunity to showcase some of our finer menu items. It brings in new customers and we love to offer a great value for that $30.13,” said Pete Triantafilos of the Costas Inn.
Three course dinners for just $30.13, the famous crab cakes, the prime rib and much more.
“Our entrees include a 16-ounce prime rib, our famous 8-ounce crab cake. We have swordfish, we have a chicken breast sauteed with colossal shrimp crab imperial on top of it, and we have filet mignon medallions with two gulf shrimp wrapped in bacon,” he said.
This is Baltimore’s biggest Restaurant Week ever–111 restaurants, including a dozen in Little Italy. At Sabatino’s, the favorites include the famous Bookmaker Salad and a signature shrimp dish.
“Shrimp Renato features jumbo shrimp that are butterflied and broiled in a brandy lemon butter wine sauce with melted mozzarella cheese and prosciutto,” said Lisa Morekas of Sabatino’s.
“Our regular customers will come to try new things, but it brings in people who have always heard of us but never had the opportunity to come down and have a soup-to-nuts dinner at a really reasonable price,” she said.
And at Sabatino’s, the Restaurant Week specials will continue.
“What our customers ask us for is why can’t we do this all the time. So this year, for every person who comes in and dines with us for Restaurant Week we’re going to give them a certificate to come back and do it again anytime they’d like between now and the first day of summer,” Morekas said.
Delicious deals, great meals–and a lot of Purple Pride.
“Make reservations–it does get hectic during Restaurant Week. We always take reservations seven days a week at Costas Inn,” Triantafilos said. “And obviously we’ll be rooting for them and go Ravens!”
Baltimore Restaurant Week runs until Feb. 3. For a complete list of participating restaurants, click here.
