Baltimore County Restaurant Week, arranged by fixed price

Baltimore County's winter restaurant promotion starts today. I've been looking over the fixed-price deals the participating restaurants are offering. The innovation here is all-inclusiveness. Restaurants were allowed to establish their fixed price, for lunch or for dinner, at one any one of six levels -- $10.11, $15.11, $20.11, $25.11, $30.11 or $35.11.

You can find them all collected on the Baltimore County Restaurant Week website, but you have to click on the links to discover the deal.

As Madonna said in Depaerately Seeking Susan, "...Fortunately for everyone, I'm here..." 

So here's how it all breaks down, with the rule-breakers first.

Carson's Creekside Restaurant and Lounge in Middle River gets super extra credit for offering customers six different menu options. Their customers can choose among menus fixed at $10.11, $15.11, $20.11, $25.11, $30.11 or $35.11. Those options are available all day at Carson's Creekside, beginning at 11 a.m.

Suburban House is running a two-for-$35.11 deal

And depending on what you order as a main entree, the fixed price for your dinner at Friendly Farm is either $25.11 (Porterhouse steak), $20.11 (crab cake or fried shrimp) or $15.11 (fried chicken). There are separate deals for children ages 3-10 ($7.11) and 1 to 2 ($2.11; awwww!)

And dunce caps for CJ's Crabhouse & Grill, Greystone Grill and Captain Harvey's for not having posted their deals as of noon on Opening Day.

Thank God you're here Richard!

This breakdown is much appreciated. Looking forward to supporting a few of my local restaurants this week.

How awesome is a place called Ristorante Lil' Tony's? Pretension and familiarity.

Owl Meat, I don't know if they really have Ristorante in their name; I think it's really Little Tony's Cafe (at least that's where the link goes) and they were nice the one time we went before Christmas. I already advised the family that we are going there for my February birthday. We all liked the food and you can build your own lunch-sized salad from the menu (choose the lettuce, choose 3 toppings, one crunch, etc.) for a given price ($6?, I think). Try them out if you are in the Hunt Valley area; they're on York just north of Warren Road on your left hand-side is you are heading north.

we are going there for my February birthday

Dream big, Virgo.

Seriously, not to be a huge snob but "you can build your own lunch-sized salad"

That's not a restaurant, that's my effin kitchen.

One of my favorite stories involves a guy who worked for me. I wanted to take my GF (at the time) out for her birthday & he suggested a place in Columbia, because that was where he proposed to his wife because it had a fireplace and a kickass salad bar.

When I propose to my GF which will be soon and often, there will be no salad bar.

Yeah, I said that, World.

Owl is getting serious? My, my ...
