MORE THAN 90 RESTAURANTS PARTICIPATING IN BALTIMORE SUMMER RESTAURANT WEEK JULY 26 – AUGUST 3
More Restaurants, More Days, More Special Deals
(Baltimore, MD) — The Baltimore Area Convention and Visitors Association (BACVA) and Downtown Partnership of Baltimore have once again joined forces to present Baltimore Summer Restaurant Week, July 26 – August 3, when more than 90 participating restaurants* will offer specially selected three-course lunch and dinner prix fixe menus.
This year, Baltimore Summer Restaurant Week will span two weekends, giving diners more opportunities to take advantage of Restaurant Week deals. Also new this year, BACVA and Downtown Partnership have encouraged participating restaurants to make special offers in addition to the three-course lunch and dinner prix fixe pricing. For example, some restaurants will offer wine pairings, cooking classes, tasting menus, or coupons for a future visit.
All participating restaurants will still offer a choice of pre-selected three-course dinner menus available for $30.08 per person not including liquor, tax and gratuity. Select restaurants will also offer three-course lunch menus for $20.08 not including liquor, tax and gratuity.
“Sharing Baltimore’s culinary treasures is a major focus of our out-of-market promotional efforts and Baltimore Restaurant Week provides us with another great opportunity to tell our story and drive visitors in to our restaurants,” said Tom Noonan, BACVA president and CEO.
During Baltimore Summer Restaurant Week, locals and visitors alike can dine their way through Downtown Baltimore exploring the fresh tastes of the city’s most popular neighborhoods including Federal Hill, Fell’s Point, Little Italy, Mount Vernon, and the Inner Harbor. In addition to a greater number of participating restaurants – more than 90 in all – this year Baltimore Restaurant Week has been extended to include a full seven days. And, like last year, there will be discounted parking for Baltimore Restaurant Week patrons at Baltimore city-owned parking garages.
“Baltimore’s restaurant scene, like the city itself, is rapidly evolving and increasing in sophistication,” said Downtown Partnership President Kirby Fowler. “You can get world class food, even in comfortable neighborhood bistros. We hope Baltimore Restaurant Week patrons will use the occasion to explore Baltimore’s different neighborhoods and get to know all that’s going on in this dynamic city.”
A complete list of participating restaurants is available for review online at www.BaltimoreRestaurantWeek.com. The site includes menus for most of the participating restaurants, information on discounted parking, and a map of Downtown Baltimore parking garages.
Artwork available upon request. Area chefs and restaurateurs may be available for individual media appearances.
More than eighty restaurants participated in last July’s event and most were completely booked with reservations – so much so that several extended their pre fixe Restaurant Week offerings for additional days, weeks, and even months. Reservations are recommended as many restaurants report heavy advance bookings. To help with reservations, BaltimoreRestaurantWeek.com features direct links to the restaurants and to OpenTable.com.
*Please see individual participating restaurants for menu and offer specifics. Not all participants will offer BOTH lunch and dinner prix fixe pricing and some restaurants have opted out of weekend service.
