7 Things About Restaurant Week You'll Kick Yourself for Not Knowing

Aug 3, 2018
We live in Howard County, Maryland.  We have convenient access to Baltimore, Annapolis and Washington DC.  As such we can take advantage of a LOT of different activities.  One of my favorites?  Restaurant week.  Here are some reasons why you definitely don't want to miss it!  Here is a link to my privacy policy. Visit Howard County Board hosted us for the purposes of review.

1.  Try something new


Restaurant week gives you the chance to try something completely new, without breaking the bank.  Is there a local restaurant that you have been wanting to try?  This is the perfect opportunity.  Also worth mentioning, my kids devoured two orders of the lamb meatballs at Ananda. I am so happy that they left their comfort zone and learned they loved something new!

2. It's a money saver


Ananda and Food Plenty hosted us for Restaurant week. Let me tell you, these menus will save money. Picture this... You want to go to Ananda.  Right off the bat, I have to tell you that this is probably the best restaurant in the DMV. The decor is stunning, the service is excellent, and the food?  Among the best I have ever eaten.  The dishes on the restaurant week menu, when ordered by themselves, for two people, will easily cost $100.  During Restaurant Week, for $40 per person you also get a appetizer  (I highly recommend the kerala (crab) cakes), entree, bread, and a dessert.  I don't like lamb, and I am dreaming about those lamb chops from the picture above.  Absolutely worth the splurge.  The same goes for Food Plenty, and they have a lower-priced, two-course option.

3. Perfect for Date Night


How often do you date your partner?  Well, this is the perfect chance to splurge on a dinner (or lunch) at a great local restaurant at a great price!

4.  They do lunch too for even greater savings


Yes!  We ate at Food Plenty for lunch!  Here is their restaurant week menu...the food was amazing.  The service was really, really outstanding.  I can't even believe how good the goat cheese cheesecake is.  You guys, I don't even like cheesecake.  I wish I could give you a ton of emoji.

Have you tried Restaurant Week?  What were your highlights?

I have to end this on a note of thanks for both restaurants, and to Howard County for hosting us.  As I really am passionate about organic and healthy food, I am so pleased that both restaurants have a sustained commitment to farm to table, local, and sustainable ingredients.  In fact, Binda (the owner of Ananda) came in with eggs from his chickens for the restaurant.  What a fabulous idea! He may have also packed some to go for us.  Maybe.  I just love the blue eggs.  If you look closely at the drawings of the chickens on the walls in Food Plenty, they are chickens on the farm that supplies Victoria Restaurant Group!
