Local restaurant weeks are usually relegated to the dog days of summer or the post-Christmas dead of winter, slow times of year when eateries are hoping to bring in some extra business. We don’t need to tell you 2020 has been anything but typical. So this year, The Restaurant Association of Maryland is sponsoring a statewide restaurant week in ordinarily busy September, with discounts and prix fixe menus available.

The event starts Friday and runs through Sept. 27. So mask up, spritz on the hand sanitizer and tip generously. Still not ready to take the plunge and dine indoors? Many offer outdoor seating and carryout specials.

Gunther & Co.

Back from its late summer hiatus, Canton’s Gunther & Co. is offering a three-course menu for $35 pick up, dine in or delivery. Ring in the fall with their butternut squash soup or cornmeal fried oysters, feast on the Thai seafood curry or wood oven roasted chicken and call it a night with a rich chocolate pavé.

Petit Louis

True, you can’t go to France right now. But the three-course, $35 menu at Petit Louis might make you just not care, at least for an evening. Start off with what sounds like just about the most perfect salad for late summer/ early fall: beets with honey crisp apples with chevre and toasted hazelnuts. For an entree, there’s trout amandine, grilled lamb with pomme frites or roasted Scottish salmon. Complete the Gallic fantasy with your choice of Paris-brest or hazelnut cake. Bon appetit.
