Winter Restaurant & Craft Beverages Week kicks off in Howard County

Howard County’s Winter Restaurant & Craft Beverages Week kicked off Thursday at Walker’s Tap & Table in Glenwood.

County Executive Calvin Ball was joined by Restaurant Association of Maryland President/CEO Marshall Weston and Walker’s Tap & Table co-owner Anthony DiGangi for the event which features more than 32 restaurants, breweries, and distilleries across Howard County.

Winter Restaurant & Craft Beverages Week, which runs through Jan. 31,  is a celebration of the culinary talents of area restaurants. During the event, restaurants offer specially priced multi-course meals. Chefs work hard all year to take care of their customers, but during restaurant weeks, they go above and beyond and show off their talent and culinary diversity.

Menus can range anywhere from $15 or less for a two-course lunch to $45 for a four-course dinner in one Howard County’s establishments. Residents can opt for curbside pickup, front-door delivery, or choose to dine on-premises.

Participating restaurants and craft beverage businesses are required to follow all CDC guidelines. Residents should directly contact businesses to learn more about their current operating procedures. Beverages, tax, gratuity not included, promotions, and menus and offerings vary.

In addition to all the favorite mainstays, several restaurants are participating for the first time, including Beef Brothers, Bushel and a Peck Kitchen & Bar, Koshary by Misteka, Neo Pizza, Rathskeller, Spurrier’s Restaurant & Bar, Tasty Empanadas, The Periodic Table, Walker’s Tap & Table, and Xenia Greek Kouzina.

Howard County’s first distillery, Lost Ark Distilling Company, is  sponsoring Howard County Restaurant Weeks & Craft Beverages by means of providing its locally made hand and surface sanitizing spray to participating restaurants.
