The good eating just doesn’t stop this month. Now, it’s time for Baltimore Restaurant Week, which starts Sunday and runs through Feb. 23.

There are more than 100 participating restaurants offering three-course, fixed-price menus for $30 or $20, not including tax and gratuity. Some places are also serving two-course lunch or brunch menus for $15.

Newcomers like Ozra, Dooby’s, and French Kitchen at Lord Baltimore Hotel (the fabulous five-beet salad, pictured, is on the menu) have joined the annual promotion as well as favorites like Cinghiale, Kali’s Court, and B&O American Brasserie.

Reservations are encouraged, especially at some of the more popular restaurants. Restaurant Week is part of an Absolutely Febulous promotion offering special deals at area hotels, museums, and other venues.

Here’s a sampling of some of the menus.

Oliver Speck’s Drinks & Eats, Harbor East, three courses, $30. Dinner menu choices include arugula salad, pimento cheese with house-made crackers, meats (beef brisket, pork spare ribs, and smoked turkey breast) with sides (bacon-and-egg potato salad, coleslaw, and baked beans) and bread (buttermilk biscuit and cornbread); and desserts like pecan pie, coconut cream pie, and chocolate brownie sundae.

Regi’s American Bistro, Federal Hill, three courses, $30. Dinner menu choices include A.J.’s tater tots, smashed brisket-and-sirloin meatballs, jumbo lump crab cake, flat-iron steak, miso salmon, and desserts like upside-down apple walnut pie and cinnamon crunch coffee cake.
