This year’s Baltimore Restaurant Week is set for August 13-22. The city uses this event as a way to encourage exploration of its dynamic neighborhoods, including Little Italy (where you’ll find Aldo’s Ristorante Italiano), Mount Vernon (b), Federal Hill (Tabrizi’s), Canton (Jack’s Bistro) and the Inner Harbor (Morton’s The Steakhouse).
Top chefs include Gertrude’s chef John Shields, who has written several cookbooks and has a TV show on PBS. The prix fixe rates are $20.10 and $35.10 for lunch and dinner, respectively. Discounted parking at city-owned parking garages is also available for restaurant week patrons.
