In an innovative weeklong dining promotion, fresh Maryland Seafood will be featured on the menus of restaurants stretching from Philadelphia to Northern Virginia. From the Bay, For the Bay: Dine Out was conceived and is being managed by the Maryland Department of Natural Resources Fisheries Service.
"We are incredibly pleased by the enthusiasm surrounding our Dine Out celebration," said Governor Martin O’Malley. "Restaurants from across the mid-Atlantic have joined this effort to promote our Maryland seafood and that speaks volumes about the quality and variety that we have to offer. By promoting the bounty of the bay and encouraging Marylanders to buy local, this program supports local economies and jobs among watermen, seafood wholesalers and retailers, and the restaurant industry."
Participating restaurants in From the Bay, For the Bay: Dine Out will donate $1 for every Maryland seafood dinner they sell Oyster Recovery Partnership, a non-profit organization that works to replenish the population of the Chesapeake Bay's oyster population.
