BALTIMORE (WJZ) — If you’re a foodie, this is your time to enjoy some great meals at bargain prices as more than 100 restaurants are participating in Baltimore Restaurant Week.

“This is huge for Baltimore City. It’s an opportunity to visit Baltimore, and the downtown partnership to collaborate and invite all of our local residents and visitors to enjoy all these special restaurants in Baltimore City,” says Al Hutchinson, president and CEO of Visit Baltimore.

Sabatino’s Italian Restaurant is just one of the many restaurants in Little Italy that are taking part.

“The most important thing from restaurant week is that we get new customers. Anytime you can offer a deal that brings new people in your door, they’re your future regulars and regulars are the bread and butter of your business,” says Lisa Morekas of Sanatino’s.

Many restaurants are offering special deals for both lunch and dinner.

“There are two-course meals for lunch, a pre-fixe meal from $12-$20. The dinner is from $20-$35, and that’s a three-course meal. It’s a real exciting opportunity for our residents to come out,” says Hutchinson.

Restaurant Week actually lasts 10 days and includes two weekends.

“Having two weekends really makes it special. If they miss it or if they already have plans, there’s still next weekend and we always advise to make reservations,” says Norekas.

There are at least six newcomers joining in on the promotional event. These restaurants include Nailah’s Kitchen, Heavy Seas Ale House, Rec Pier Chop House, and Annabel Lee Tavern.

Baltimore’s 14th year of Restaurant Week continues through Sunday, Jan. 21. To see all of the restaurants participating in Restaurant Week and make your reservation, head to their website.
