Finally, a way to check out local eateries on a test-run basis. Baltimore Restaurant Week started up three years ago and in 2009 its expanded winter and summer sessions--Jan. 23-Feb. 1 and Aug. 7-16--were spread out over 20 days, with many places extending their deals. During that time, roughly 90 local restaurants offer affordable prix fixe menus of their celebrated fare--from the Brewer's Art to Taverna Corvino, Pazo to Sotto Sopra. Yes, we know this event is merely a promotional campaign--sponsored by the Downtown Partnership, the City of Baltimore, and Visit Baltimore--designed to give local businesses an economic shot in the arm, but it's still a fun, delicious, and low-impact way to feel like a dining tourist in your own city. Just wondering: Are we going to see Baltimore Utilities Week--where a month's worth of gas and electric bills only cost $30.10--in 2010?
