Letter to the Editor about Harford County Restaurant Week



Only 30 Restaurants in Harford County?


Dear Editor,


Please help me for I am confused. Harford County Restaurant Week, or is it Bel Air Restaurant Week, runs from January 20th to 29th. I thought this was something to promote the local restaurants in Harford County, but it doesn’t seem like it. When you read the list at http://harfordcountyrestaurantweek.com/, there are only 30 establishments listed, none of which are located on Pulaski Highway may I add, however, the low numbers and where they are located have me baffled. Here’s the breakdown:

Out of the 30 Restaurants listed:

  • 18 are in Bel Air
  • 4 are in Havre de Grace
  • 2 in Abingdon
  • 2 in Fallston
  • 1 in Aberdeen
  • 1 in Joppa
  • 1 in Edgewood
  • 1 in Forest Hill
  • and of the 30, 6 of them are Pizza Hut

There seem to be several restaurants missing, and good ones at that! Shouldn’t this be something that all the LOCAL Restaurants are automatically a part of, or do they actually have to pay to be a part of this? I think thousands of people from Harford County and surrounding areas are missing some great places to eat, and Harford County Restaurant Week should be featuring all of the places to eat in the county.

So anyone reading this, please visit all of the local restaurants in Harford County, even the small delis. Believe me when I tell you, there are more places to dine in Harford County than just Bel Air.
