Annapolis Restaurant Week will celebrate its 12th year from February 29 to March 8. This year, the event has been extended to nine days, allowing everyone to enjoy dining specials on both weekends as well as the weekdays.
“With 40 dining options, we wanted to make sure people had the opportunity to try their favorite restaurants and try new restaurants," said Erik Evans, the executive director of the Downtown Annapolis Partnership.
The event has become a popular way for locals to get out and socialize over good food after being bundled up indoors during the winter season.
Forty restaurants in both downtown Annapolis and the greater Annapolis area will offer two-course, price-fixed meal selections for just $12.95 for breakfast and $15.95 for lunch. A three-course dinner for $34.95 will be the main attraction. Select locations will also offer additional bonus items and specials. Those wishing to give Annapolis Restaurant Week as a gift can purchase gift cards to participating restaurants at their location and online for some locations at www.annapolisrestaurantweek.com.
“Annapolis Restaurant Week is popular with both locals and tourists,” said Matt Schatzle, chairman of the Downtown Annapolis Partnership. “With so many dining options and specials, you will want to go out to eat every night this week.”
Many restaurants have added gluten-free and vegetarian options to their menus. Others will highlight chef specials available only during Restaurant Week.
For those who want to add to the experience, Annapolis has a wide range of offerings including shopping at boutiques and galleries, museums, local bands and performing arts events. Annapolis also has many hotels, inns, and bed and breakfast options. Need help planning your trip to Annapolis? Visit www.visitannapolis.org.
