Restaurant Week is like my football season – I look forward to it all year and, when it arrives, I research my dining possibilities then plan my life that week around reservations. So I love the title of this article from The Baltimore Sun: Restaurant Week: Research, plot, then dine, written in preparation for Baltimore Restaurant Week, August 7 through 16 (now extended to August 23). Indeed, Restaurant Week is all about strategy. I like to look for the most expensive restaurants, the ones I can’t afford on a non-special occasion night, and start there. Restaurants post their menus on the Baltimore Restaurant Week website (which I love – they don’t do this in New York) so my second step is to find a menu that sounds interesting and creative. If I don’t get hungry and excited while reading the menu, I move on. After much preparation, Kenny and I have decided to go to Pazo – their menu is all about tapas, my favorite way to eat – but our second restaurant is yet to be determined. Happy dining!
During Baltimore Restaurant Week, three course lunches cost $20.09 and dinners are $30.09.
