Foodies, rejoice! Every February, locals and visitors alike gear up for the annual Annapolis Restaurant Week, when more than 40 restaurants will be offering deals on dishes for lunch and dinner.
Annapolis Restaurant Week is a great opportunity to try out that new spot you’ve been meaning to get to, or revisit one of your old favorites. And according to Downtown Annapolis Partnership, the show’s presenter, the fixed-price menus being offered make for an enjoyable tasting of some of the area’s most popular restaurants without breaking your budget! And if you’re coming to town to visit to take advantage of this food lover’s celebration, be sure to book your room at the Loews Annapolis for a luxurious resting spot between meals!
