Baltimore Restaurant Week is winding down, Baltimore and Howard counties’ restaurant weeks are heating up and a diverse mix of events, from tea classes to beer dinners to meatball eating contests, are popping up on the horizon.
It’s a new year, which means it’s time for new beginnings. Baltimore’s restaurant industry is already working hard on that resolution. This week brings tons of announcements of openings around town, plus the return of Restaurant Week in the city and much more.
A few years ago, I interviewed Karin Tiffany, the co-owner of Peter’s Inn, for a feature on restaurant personalities, and we got to talking about what’s important to her as a restaurateur.
She said she never takes her customers for granted, that she and her husband/business partner, Bud Tiffany, recognize that going out to eat is expensive and they take it seriously that people are willing to spend their money on their food, at their restaurant.
“Some things on my menu might cost what people make in an hour. That’s your hard-earned money. It’s a big responsibility.”
That stuck with me, and I thought of it again last year, just after Christmas, when the Fells Point restaurant caught fire. The damage was severe enough that Peter’s Inn, which had at that point been open for over 20 years, was forced to close for nine months to make all the necessary repairs.
