Frederick Restaurant Week - Plans Announced for 2011

Frederick will offer diners price-fixed meals at mouth-watering prices the week of March 7-13, 2011 during Frederick Restaurant Week. Details of Frederick Restaurant Week were announced at the Weinberg Center for the Arts today.

Featuring over a dozen restaurants, Frederick Restaurant Week is the perfect time to visit a favorite restaurant or to try something new, as chefs prepare delicious 2-course and 3-course special menus. In a collaborative effort, the Downtown Frederick Partnership and the Tourism Council of Frederick County (TCFC), along with local restaurants, planned the promotion. During Restaurant Week, lunches will be offered at $10.11 for a 2-course meal and $20.11 for a 3-course meal. Dinners are offered at $20.11 for 2-courses and $30.11 for 3-courses. Pricing is per person and excludes beverages, taxes, and gratuity, unless otherwise noted by individual restaurants.

“After the success of our first Frederick Restaurant Week in 2010, we’re pleased to offer the promotion again this year,” says John Fieseler, Executive Director for the TCFC. “It is a perfect opportunity for visitors and residents to experience our vibrant dining scene,” he adds. During Restaurant Week, meals are priced to offer a savings. “This year, we’ve adjusted options to include a 2-course lunch at only $10.11 and a dinner option at $20.11,” says Kara Norman, Executive Director of the Downtown Frederick Partnership.

The website, www.frederickrestaurantweek.com, has information about the promotion, including participating restaurants and prices. It will also be updated to include menus, links to places to stay, Restaurant Week activities, and other information so visitors can experience historic Downtown Frederick and nearby attractions.
