Celebrate a Week of Baltimore’s Food

restaurant week

If you’re tired of what’s in the pantry, you’re in luck because Maryland’s food scene is one of the best yet. Last year, Thrillist named Baltimore as a part of “The Best Food City in Every State.” From the Inner Harbor to Fells Point, there is delicious food around every corner.

With that in mind, August 2nd through 11th is restaurant week, so it’s the perfect time to start your dining adventure. For the entire week, enjoy lunch menus from $12-20 and dinner menus from $20-35 at all participating restaurants. Almost 100 dining destinations are excited to participate, so you can expand your plate and try something new—right in our city! It’s all brought to you by Downtown Partnership, Visit Baltimore, and Open Table.

Here are some participating restaurants that you can’t miss, right around the corner from Spinnaker Bay.

Bar Vaquez, 1425 Aliceanna St.

If you’re looking for a place to start, with $35 dinners, Bar Vasquez is serving up Latin American cuisine. With their entrées of Dorado a la Plancha and Bucatini Pasta, it’s the perfect opportunity to enjoy a fancy dinner at a not-so-fancy price.

Cinghiale, 822 Lancaster St.

If you’re looking for something more traditionally Italian, Cinghiale is the place for you. They have perfectly chosen wine pairings in an all-Italian atmosphere. While you are trying their Pan Roasted Icelandic Cod or Pollo alla Matonne, sip some wine and have your car parked with complementary valet.
