For those of you who have started to sing the blues (or bang your flatware) because Baltimore County Restaurant Week is coming to an end this Saturday, January 21, sing those tunes no more, for Winter Restaurant Week is coming. Starting today, January 20, and ending next Sunday, January 29, some of Baltimore’s favorite restaurants are sharing their food at prices even I, a poor college student, can afford. Over 70 restaurants are participating this winter, including the renowned Cinghiale and The Capital Grille, and a (controversial) Baltimore staple, Café Hon. Three-course pre-set menus are offered at $20.12 or, with wine, $30.12. More than 40 restaurants are even offering two-course pre-set lunch menus for $15.12. If these low prices are not incentive enough, the organization is hosting a “Lunch on Us” sweepstakes this year: Each day, a lucky contestant’s awarded a $25 gift certificate. To enter and grab more information, go to the Baltimore Restaurant Week Facebook page; also visit the website. See you there. Happy eating!
