BALTIMORE (WJZ)—If you love to eat, this is your time of year. Baltimore Restaurant Week is back, and this time it’s even bigger.
Ron Matz has more on the most delicious time of winter.
They’re putting out a fabulous spread at the legendary Costas Inn in Dundalk: crab cakes, steak and more.
It’s Baltimore Restaurant Week.
“We love Restaurant Week. It’s a great opportunity to bring new folks out to the restaurant who probably wouldn’t come out this time of year, especially with the elements that we’ve been going against,” said Pete Triantafilos, Costas Inn.
At Sabatino’s in Little Italy, there’s the famous bookmaker salad and much more.
“We have our famous bookmaker salad. It’s a very popular item. It’s featured on both our lunch and our dinner menu,” said Lisa Morekas, Sabatino’s.
It’s a week to savor.
“It brings back people who used to be regular customers, customers we haven’t seen in a long time. There’s nothing I love to hear more than I haven’t been here in a while, but I’m so glad I came back. It also gives us an opportunity to host some new faces,” Morekas said.
This year Restaurant Week has expanded to include deals at 35 Baltimore hotels.
“We’ve created what we call ‘Absolutely Febulous.’ It’s not only Restaurant Week. We’ve added a hotel component, a retail component and a museum attraction component as well. We want people to have fun and eat, play and stay in Baltimore,” said Tom Noonan, CEO of Visit Baltimore. “If you stay at a hotel for one night you get a $25 gift card. Stay two nights, you get a $50 gift card. Now you can use that gift card at your restaurant, retail or a museum attraction.”
Meanwhile, at Costas Inn, whether it’s a burger or stuffed lobster, the business of good food here is family.
“They come out and try some of our menu items that we’ve been doing the last 42 years. We also get to do some signature dishes and newer items. It really brings out people for the deal: $30 for dinner and $15 for lunch,” Triantafilos said.
Baltimore Restaurant Week continues through Sunday. More than 100 restaurants are participating. For a complete list, click here.
