Looking for a great meal out with a great deal?  Then check out one of the local participating Eldersburg restaurants taking part in the Carroll County Restaurant Week.  The event, coordinated by the Carroll County Chamber of Commerce invites local diners to experience great cuisine in their back yard.  This is the 8th Annual Carroll County Restaurant Week – this year’s event is from August 12-19, 2018.

During Carroll County Restaurant Week, restaurants offer a prix fixe menu during the restaurants’ operating hours (from open to close) every day of the week throughout restaurant week.  Restaurant Week occurs in August from Sunday to Sunday. Restaurant Week is designed to promote consumer awareness of the participating restaurants. It provides our community restaurants with an increased customer base and is a beneficial means for increased revenues for restaurants, merchants and suppliers during a particularly low revenue season and throughout the year.

Following are the participating Eldersburg restaurants.

Located in the front of the Liberty Exchange shopping center, Basta Pasta touts itself as an “Italian Kitchen | Bar” – it’s that and much more.  This warm and inviting restaurant boasts great Italian dishes, great wines and craft beers.  Their website says it all:

At Basta Pasta, expect incredibly fresh and flavorful choices with masterful preparation and presentation. We source the finest available ingredients and offer endless salad and breadsticks with your entrée.
