Baltimore Restaurant Week Menus

Aah yes, 09’ Baltimore Restaurant Week starts Friday, January 23rd and ends Sunday, February 1st with prefix menus at discounts throughout the week. A large number of restaurants participate offering a 3 course lunch for $20.09 and 3 course dinner for $30.09.

My Rant

The menus for Restaurant Week are imperative to me as to my choices but alas half the restaurateurs don’t care enough to post their menus. Why bother to participate? Do you understand the message you are sending by not posting a menu? Afraid of food product increases then put a disclaimer – ‘menu subject to change’, at least we have an idea of what you are offering. Come on folks, this is cash flow for a notorious slow time of the year or is business that good you just don't care or are just hoping for the overflow to fill your restaurant?

I am usually on the side of the restaurateur but not this time. You are about 2 weeks out from the start of Restaurant Week and no menu, seriously – POST YOUR MENU.

Which restaurants are you going to and did they post their menus?
