The Red Horse Steak House, Clay Oven, and Taco Bar on the Golden Mile are all participating in Frederick's Summer Restaurant Week Each participating restaurant will offer fixed price, multi-course menus. Each course will have at least two dishes for diners to choose from. Each restaurant sets its own price and what time of day they will serve their restaurant week menu. New this year is the added option of carry-out dining at many of the participating restaurants due to capacity restrictions on dining spaces. The exciting thing about having a summer restaurant week is all the great fresh produce that will bring fresh & bright flavors and unique opportunities for chef's to do more creative things with their menu's. Taco Bar owner Raul Valdivia said the restaurant will, of course, have tacos on the restaurant week menu but also plans to have some new items, including green enchiladas and a house-made flan for dessert. There will also be vegan chorizo and al pastor taco options. The restaurant will offer three courses — appetizer, entrée, and dessert — for $17. Drinks cost extra. Looks like the Golden Mile will be seeing some yummy restaurant week selections.
