Restaurant week (Baltimore)
Have reservations at the Prime Rib already but am looking for a second place to try. I don't eat seafood so that cuts out a lot of choices. We're leaning towards Timoty Dean. Any suggestions?
No offense, but IMHO, Mo's is a rather mediocre local chain. Timothy Dean has excellent food. It did have service issues, but they brought in a consultant recently to fix them. I don't know how successful he was as I haven't been since they brought him on board. I would definitely give them a try. TD's website says they will have a different RW menu every night.
You should also check out Saffron, Asian and Latin fusion at its best. The chef, Edward Kim, is probably Baltimore's best, although Timothy Dean is definitely in his league.
While living in other cities, I looked at restaurant week as a chance to try out restaurant that were otherwise off-limits due to a student budget. After going through the Baltimore Restaurant Week list, it appears that I would be able to order off of the regular menu for less than $30. I am certain that this is the case at places like Uno's and Ding How, but from looking at the online menu it looks like Saffron and Abercrombie fall just at the $30/dinner mark as well.
Any suggestions on making the most of my restaurant week picks?
You are correct about the $30 issue, but remember that includes an app and dessert. I think the following places would be the best bargin from their regular menu for an app, entree, and dessert at $30-
Blue Sea Grill

Since I haven't been, I can't comment on the food at Saffron, but with 5+ appetizers under $10 and 5+ entrees under $20, doesn't it just make sense to wait until after restaurant week to avoid the crowds and overwhelmed wait-staff?
Saffron won't be the deal of a lifetime at $30 for app, dinner and dessert, but it has the potential to be more than worth it as almost the entire menu will be available (the way I hear it the foie gras app will be an extra $4 and the rack of lamb dinner an extra $6 - everything else included).
