BALTIMORE COUNTY, Md. (WJZ) — A few years ago, after being denied access to restaurant week in Baltimore City, a couple of chefs in the county dreamed up Baltimore County’s Restaurant Week.
Now as Mike Schuh reports, 59 locations are on the list.
No matter how you slice it, these restaurant weeks end up being a pretty good deal.
“Well it’s a boost for our business particularly in the summer when many people are on vacation,” said Larry Wilhelm, of Friendly Farm.
The restaurants stay busy and all of the places are unwrapping special menu deals, setting prices from $15 to $35 dollars. It often includes dessert.
“Everyone who’s no on vacation needs to get out and eat and support the local businesses and that’s what we’re doing.”
“It’s a set price, so when you know when your going how much you’ll spend, but also you don’t know about all the new creations,” said Kevin Scott, with the Baltimore County Chamber of Commerce. “And that’s what’s wonderful because that’s what drives customers back to restaurants so they have a great experience.”
Good food is good business. Baltimore County boast the second highest restaurant revenues in the state.
“It’s a nice win for everybody,” Scott said.
Baltimore County’s Restaurant Week starts Friday, July 31 and ends on Saturday, Aug. 15.
