With Baltimore Winter Restaurant Week in full swing and several fun events on the horizon, there are plenty of reasons to bundle up and head out to dinner (or lunch or brunch) this week.
Hot Plate: Restaurant Week kickoff, Sotto Sopra’s L’Anno di Bergamo begins, purple pancakes for the Ravens, big plans at Ouzo Bay and more
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.
Here’s a look at what’s on tap:
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.
Baltimore is a delicious city! Don’t just take our word for it – explore Baltimore’s food scene this January during Baltimore Restaurant Week. Try somewhere new, go out to lunch, have a date night (or two). Get out this winter and treat your taste buds.
The revamped Shops at Kenilworth complex in Towson will soon be adding a taco spot.
This week, unsurprisingly, starts off with a bang, then gets a little quieter. Even if you haven’t made New Year’s Eve plans just yet, there’s still time–and local restaurants have you covered.
Here’s a look at what’s happening for New Year’s and for the rest the week here in Baltimore:
Happy holidays, Baltimore! In between the wrapping and unwrapping, don’t forget to take time to dine. Local restaurants have you covered this week, with special holiday meals and post-Christmas celebrations. Here’s a look at what’s coming up:
Hot Plate: Refugee and Immigrant Arts Feast, champagne menu at Petit Louis, Filipino Festivus, pop-up night market at Ekiben and more
The monument is lit, the city is sparkling and it’s a wonderful time of year to be in Baltimore. This week offers some terrific opportunities to head out to dinner to celebrate the holidays. Here’s a look at what local restaurants have planned:
