BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Some great meals at bargain prices are part of Baltimore’s summer restaurant week, which begins Friday.

“The promotion offers prix-fixe menus from chefs all around the city. Brunch and lunch are $12 to 20 for two courses, and dinner is $20 to 35 for three courses,” said Megan Isennock of the Downtown Partnership.

Restaurateur Tony Foreman of the Foreman Wolf Group has four restaurants participating.

“It’s one of the most important weeks of the year. We have four restaurants participating: Bar Vasquez, Cinghiale, Johnny’s and Petit Louis are all participating in restaurant week. People want to meet their new favorite place and you have the chance to help them do that, and you have a chance to show them,” Foreman said.

At Sabatino’s in Little Italy, the famous bookmaker salad and the popular linguini with crab sauce is on the menu.

“People come to Sabatino’s from near and people come from far. It’s a great deal. We have three-course lunches and three-course dinners for a very reduced price,” said Lisa Morekas of Sabatino’s.

Baltimore’s summer Restaurant Week actually lasts 10 days and includes two weekends.

“If you live in the county, it’s a perfect chance to come downtown, try something new or maybe go to an old favorite. There are some classic Baltimore restaurants on the list,” said Isennock

Summer Restaurant Week in Baltimore continues through Sunday, Aug. 5.


Two-course brunch and lunch menus range from $12 to $20 and three-course dinner ranges from $20 to $25.
