Get ready… Annapolis Restaurant Week 2020 is coming!

Annapolis Restaurant Week in Annapolis started twelve years ago to support local restaurants in the off season. It is a fun way to support our local restaurants, save a few dollars, have an amazing meal and get out of the house and enjoy time with friends and family.

This is one of the best times to eat out in Annapolis area restaurants. This year’s event starts on February 29th which is Leap Day. The 9-day event runs through Sunday, March 8th and features over 40 of the Annapolis area’s best restaurants. Those participating in this annual event will be offering price-fixed meal selections for just $12.95 for a 2-course breakfast, $15.95 for a 2-course lunch and a three-course dinner for $34.95. Select locations will also offer additional bonus items and specials which may include 1/2 price bottles of wine, discounted appetizers, or specialty drinks.

“Due to the popularity of Annapolis Restaurant Week, we traditionally see a huge upswing in reservations at participating restaurants. So we encourage you to make reservations early especially if you are bringing a larger group,” says Erik Evans the Executive Director of the Downtown Annapolis Partnership. This year’s dining options have also increased with four new restaurants joining in the event.  The new participating restaurants include Rodizio Grill, Camp Severn Shore, Paladar Latin Kitchen and Rum Bar and Main & Market. Many of the restaurants have also added options to accommodate vegetarian and gluten-free diners.

This is the perfect time to try out new restaurants along with your favorites. The City of Annapolis has become a culinary dining destination over the years and this event highlights some of the area’s most popular dining destinations. Several of the areas local restaurants regularly make the list of the top restaurants in nearby metropolitan publications like the Washingtonian Magazine, Baltimore Magazine and local publications including What’s Up? Magazine and Bay Weekly Newspapers and the show Diners Drive-ins and Dives has also featured participating restaurants.

“Annapolis Restaurant Week is popular with both locals and tourists. With so many dining options and specials you will want to go out to eat every day this week,” says Matt Schatzle Chairman of the Downtown Annapolis Partnership. There is a wide range of restaurant types including seafood, steakhouses, international restaurants, and comfort food options.
The Annapolis Restaurant Week website has location addresses, menus, gift cards, reservation options, bonus deals, etc.

The first week of March is also a good week to pair that meal with a show, play, concert, live music or the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Annapolis. Every day during Annapolis Restaurant Week you have entertainment options in downtown Annapolis to enjoy. Check out the nightly entertainment options at Rams Head On Stage, the backroom of 49 West Coffeehouse, and Stan and Joe’s Saloon.  Plus look for events or entertainment options at Wine and Design, Mission Escape Rooms, Middleton Tavern, Colonial Players, Maryland Hall and the Annapolis Shakespeare Company.

Many of the restaurants are also going greener. Many of the participating restaurants have started to give straws only on request or convert to paper straws. All the restaurants this past fall eliminated the use of Styrofoam packaging. With the Chesapeake Bay on our doorstep, we always encourage the public to look for ways to reduce their impact on our environment. This year we will continue to suggest that restaurant-goers only take a straw if needed.
