If you’ve always had a hankering to mingle with Baltimore’s sophisticates at the über-cool Morton’s steakhouse but wondered where you were going to get the big bucks to finance your feast, now there’s a way. I was there last week for an event and found out about this great deal.
During "power hour" from 5-6:30 p.m. and 9:30-11 p.m. Monday through Friday, you can belly up to the swanky bar and nibble on yummy snacks for $5 a plate—great noshes like mini crab cakes, jumbo lump crab dip, petite filet mignon sandwiches, and more. One of my favorites is the iceberg wedge bites (little salads with tomato, egg, bacon, and blue-cheese dressing). Check it out. Morton’s is at 300 S. Charles St. There’s valet parking, too.
As the economy slumps, more restaurants are offering great food and wine discounts to lure in customers. For instance, at Peter’s Inn in Fells Point, you can get half price on select wines on Wednesdays, or around the corner at Todd Conner’s, there’s yappy hour on Tuesdays, where you can bring a four-legged friend and get 25 percent off your tab.
Let’s share. Tell me about your favorite places to get a bargain.
