Midweek specials - Baltimore?

Gertrude's at the BMA has Tuesdays with Gertie - $10 entrees and discounts on selected wines by the glass.

Helen's Garden in Canton has a 3-course wine tasting menu for $29 on Tuesdays and something else on Wednesdays (can't remember the details?)

Taste at Belvedere Square has 2 for 1 selected menu items on Tuesdays and Prix Fixe Thursdays for $30.

Are there any other midweek "specials" at places in/around Baltimore? Any type of cuisine (except chain restaurants) is ok.

    1. The Prime Rib has their "Thursday Night at the Prime Rib" when they have a lite-fare menu (burger, ribs, crab cakes, etc.)

      And the first week in Feb. they have their $30 price fix Restaurant menu


      1. Bartenders in Canton on Boston Street has $6.00 pizzas (except for the 2 most expensive ones) on Monday nights. And a unique wine by the glass list. http://www.bartendersbaltimore.com/me...

        Ding How on Broadway has one of the best bargain lunches. Not stellar chinese, but good enough. And for about $5 (might be a bit more now - but still less than $6), you get an egg roll, soup and an entree, along with hot tea.

        1. Ze Mean Bean on Thursdays is $9.99 for a bowl of borscht and an entree of stuffed cabbage (plus a couple other choices; those are the ones i remember).

          1. Birches has a "buy one get another one 1/2 price" special on certain items (pasta and I believe sandwiches) on Wednesday nights.

            Thursdays at Captain Larry's: pitcher and pound of shrimp for $10.00 (certain beers I believe are a little extra).

                  Many thanks for posting this!

                  Michael's on Eastern (just block or two west of 95) - not sure what the rest of the day-of-the-week specials are but last time I went, Thursday night was still a huge (40 ounce?) Prime rib, T-bone or Porterhouse with two sides for something like $13-15. Believe it or not, it's actually a decent quality steak. IIRC, another weeknight had steamed shrimp as the special, and another night had crablegs

                  Wednesday - is it still half-price burger night at Kisling's?

                  Monday nights used to be AYCE ribs at Bare Bones on RT 40, but I've not been there in a long time, so call first to confirm.

                  1. re: foster

                    Buddy's (Thurs night) is no longer there. It's now Jack's Bistro, which is really yummy. I don't know if there are nightly specials, but I was there for late night snacks and appetizers were half price.

                    1. re: goodfoodrules

                      jacks has a great Sunday night (only if you eat at the bar) special...

                      1. re: egtobias

                        Actually - we went to Jack's Bistro this past Sunday - they do offer the Sunday night specials at tables as well. At the bar they're $12 an entree; at the tables they're $15 an entree (still a great deal)!

                  2. How about Slainte in Fells Point? Do they have specials on anything? My brother and I were there a few weeks ago and a tiny pour of a house white wine was $7.

                      They have half-price everything Wed after 9. We usually go there after Max's Pinch-the-Pint night.

                    2. Wednesday nights are half price pasta dishes at Winks in Brewers Hill. Good food and BYOB (2.50 cork fee per table)

                      1. I live a block from Helen's.... they have 12 dollar main courses on Wednesdays... but the catch is that they do not take reservations on Wednesdays.

                        1. Great thread! We've been compiling a list of daily food/drink specials. So many good ones. Here are some to add to the list:
                          - 10 entrees for $10 at Waterfront (Tuesdays)
                          - Neighborhood Night - 25% off food purchases at Todd Connors (Wednesdays)
                          - 1/2 price crab cakes at Captain Larrys (Wednesdays)
                          - $15 steak night at Mahaffeys (Tuesdays)
                          Those are some food specials that jumped out at me, but we've got a few hundred more...including a lot of drink/happy hour ones.

                          1. Mahaffey's Tues. steak night.

                            1. My favorite in my hood (Fed Hill) is Ryleighs...they have $2 crabs/$1 (fantastic) grilled ears of corn w/ feta(?) and butter, $1 oysters, etc on Tuesdays...then Wed nights their chef does a great $10 tapas-style menu, plus they have $15 bottles of wine from 5-close. That last one makes me very happy...

                                Timbuktu has $11.99 lobster night on Monday's. Tuesday's are shrimp or pasta for $8.99. Wednesday offers $15.99 steak and Thursday is $14.99 fish night. www.timbukturestaurant.com.

                                Michael's on Eastern Avenue offers week night specials, i.e., roast prime rib on Monday nights for $12.95. Two broiled crab cakes on Wednesday's for $15.95. FoiGras

                                  Cafe Hon has a $20 lobster special on Wednesday nights. Minato Sushi bar in Mt. Vernon has some good specials too.

                                    Any specials, food-wise, particularly in or near Canton on Thursday???


                              2. Alonso's on Cold Spring Lane has a Wednesday special 3-course prix fixe for $19.99 and half price bottles of wine.

                                1. Corks has 1/2 price steak and cabernet on Tuesdays and $9 pasta on Wednesdays. I've done the steak night--it was quite good, though the selection of half price wines is limited.

                                  On Sundays, Prime Rib used to (does?) a nice list of half price wines. A few months ago, we drank a '97 Mayacamas that was terrific.
