BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Now is the time to dig in! It’s Baltimore Restaurant Week, starting now thru August 10.
Pat Warren has a taste of what to expect.
If you’re a regular at local restaurants, this week is for you. Some of the best meals in the city at the very best prices.
If you’re an expert in your own home kitchen, this week is for you, too. You can get some great ideas at the city’s best restaurants on a grocery store budget.
Baltimore Restaurant Week starts now.
“Baltimore has been changing. It’s really turning into this foodie town,” said Megan Isennock, Downtown Partnership.
The Rusty Scupper is a longtime participant.
“Here it’s something special, especially in the summertime cause everyone is out and around. Everyone’s anxious to enjoy the great view here from the Rusty Scupper and see everything around the Inner Harbor. And what’s better than a great meal and a great price to go along with everything else?” said Ed Prutzer, Rusty Scupper.
More than 100 restaurants are participating this year on an even playing field of two-course lunches for $15 and three-course dinners for $20 or $30.
“It’s August, people are out-of-town. So restaurants just really understand that this is the time to bring people in cause the city’s a little slow. So people go out and they can forget they’re not at the beach while they’re having an amazing meal,” Isennock said. “As the restaurants up their game, the people of Baltimore are really getting into food and expecting more.”
They’re expecting you.
“We’re excited. We’re looking forward to it,” Prutzer said.
So if you’re looking for something different this is an ideal time to take your palate on an expedition and explore.
