Well, it’s my favorite time of year again.
While some of you may count down the days to Shark Week, Oktoberfest or the first week of Spring, the week that gets me really excited is Baltimore County Restaurant Week.
Kicking off this Friday, Aug.12, and lasting through Aug. 26 (that’s right this year there are two full weeks to enjoy the food), Restaurant Week is a celebration of food and drink that treats Baltimoreans to amazing meals at bargain prices.
Since some of your favorite stops will be participating this year, we thought it would be worthwhile to run down some of the great offers you can find right here in Lutherville.
But the fun doesn't end there.
We want YOU to be part of the Lutherville-Timonium restaurant review team. After in search of the best slice of pizza in town, I need a break — and a treadmill.
Each day, we'll feature a different restaurant from the list below. You'll find that all of these eateries are located in our nifty "Places" section located at the top of the page, in addition to every other business in town.
We'll give you the link to the page, and at the bottom you'll find a comments section where you can post a review.
We want to hear from you!
Tell us about your experience. Tell us about the times you've had there. Let us know all about your favorite and not-so-favorite places to eat out.
