Luna Del Sea has always loved the idea of restaurant week. Although we are located in Baltimore city and are not participating, we applaud the new seventeen day restaurant week concept that Baltimore county has launched as of last Friday. From January 10th until the 26th, 53 restaurants in Baltimore County will be offering lunch and dinner specials ranging from $10.14 to $35.14.
Restaurant week has always been an excellent way to showcase some of your best cooking to customers. Restaurant week let's customers try a new restaurant at a discounted price in the hopes of gaining new regulars. The whole idea of restaurant week was invented by Tim Zagat, the founder of Zagat Survey and the late Joe Baum of Windows on the World and the Rainbow Room in New York City. What started out as a promotion that ran in conjunction with the Democratic Convention, has spread like wildfire all across the country.
Baltimore City will bring back it's Winter Restaurant Week February 16th through the 23rd and will offer three-course fixed-price dinner menus for $20 or $30. Some restaurants will also offer a two-course lunch, that will include an appetizer and entree for $15. The prices do not include liquor, tax or gratuity.
So excuse us while we get back to the kitchen and start cooking up some fresh ideas for Baltimore's Winter Restaurant Week 2014.
