“Dining in Prince George’s County has arrived and it is time for us to display the amazing culinary talents that are turning our neighborhoods into unique food destinations not to be missed,” said Prince George’s County Executive Rushern L. Baker III. “With all the exciting developments and progress happening here in the county, this is a great time to promote the vast dining and incredible cuisine that residents, visitors, and foodies can find here. I encourage everyone in the county and region to dine out in Prince George’s County over the next two weeks and continue to support our incredible local restaurants throughout the year.”
