BaltCo rest week 15

Baltimore County, MD
January 9th – January 24th

No. of Participating Restaurants: 54
Offering: Lunch & Dinner
Concierge Choice: Costas Inn
“Costas Inn is a hidden gem in Dundalk, MD. When you step into Costas you immediately feel like part of the family. In the bar, you might meet Nick, one of the owners of Costas who offers excellent service and welcomes you warmly to the family. During your meal you might meet Pete, another owner who stops to ask you if you are enjoying your meal and having a nice time. But the wonderful service isn’t all that Costas has to offer, the food is amazing! From crabs to crabcakes, you never leave a meal disappointed. Their sides are homemade and taste just like family cooking and their fresh crabs are huge and full of delicious crab meat. Costas is a true local Maryland restaurant and the only place to get your fresh crabs and crabcakes with the best service there is to offer!” – Sarah R.
Fun Fact: Costas will ship crab cakes anywhere in the US!

Concierge Choice: The Ale House Columbia
“The Ale House in Columbia definitely has one of the best craft beer selections in the area, accompanied by the most delicious Honey Sriracha wings! You really can’t go wrong with any of their apps. With 3 bars and several TV’s it’s a great place to watch a game. That being said it’s also my family’s favorite place to get together and catch up.  I’ve had 3 private parties here and each time the staff went out of their way to make the event a great success. I always recommend it to friends and family new to the area and so far, no one has been disappointed!” – Cyndi G.

absolutely febulous

Baltimore City, MD
February 15th-February 28th

No. of Participating Restaurants: 67
Offering: Brunch, Lunch & Dinner
Concierge Choice: Prime Rib
“The minute you step inside the doors of the Prime Rib you will feel as though you have just been transported back in time to the 40’s. With the excellent staff dressed to the nines in tuxedos, the sophisticated décor, live piano and bass playing, and incredible food and cocktails, you are guaranteed to have a wonderful evening. Although it may be cliché, my personal recommendation is their Caesar salad followed by the classic filet mignon – theirs is the best I’ve had! Of course finish everything off with a decadent dessert like the chocolate mousse pie! The Prime Rib is (in my opinion) by far the best steak house in the area with the total package of great quality food, ambiance, service, and overall atmosphere.” – Brooke F.
Bonus/Tip: Prime Rib offers complimentary valet. They are located in Mt. Vernon within walking distance of the Meyerhoff. Dress Code is business casual (with jackets requested for men on Saturday evenings).

“The beautiful view of the Naval Academy across the Severn River is enough of a reason to visit the Severn Inn.   An added bonus is that the food is delicious – fresh seafood dishes with a modern twist.  There is plenty of parking, outdoor seating and friendly, professional staff. A great dining choice for special occasions, to entertain guests, or to catch up with friends!” – Caitlin K.

Concierge Choice: The Walrus Oyster & Ale House
“I have had the opportunity to dine at The Walrus Oyster and Ale House three times over the past month and a half. Each time I have been more impressed than before. The location is superb ( can’t wait until spring for the deck). The restaurant and bar have a cool, timeless ambiance that is unique for these types of establishments. The bar is always a lively scene with great music. The food is fresh and plentiful. The Maryland lump crab cakes are fantastic as well as the bay scallops. I found the staff, particularly the bartenders, to be high energy, fun people. It is now my “go-to place” on the weekends.” – Megan W.
