For Houston foodies it’s the most wonderful time of the year. Houston Restaurant Weeks, which runs Aug. 1 through Sept. 3, brings an unbridled joy of eating to the city that’s never full.
It also brings its share of challenges, primarily how to take in the bargain brunches, lunches and dinners offered by hundreds of the city’s most recognizable and popular restaurants. But it’s a manageable inconvenience: sit down and go to the site – houstonrestaurantweeks.com – and plan your strategy by searching through the dining options and menus.
Then take your appetite on a field day.
This year’s multi-course, prix-fixe dinners are available for $45 and $35; lunch and brunch for $20. Participating restaurants will donate between $3 and $7 for each HRW dinner sold. All proceeds from this volunteer effort chaired by Cleverley Stone go to the Houston Food Bank. To date, HRW has raised more than $10 million for the food bank.
t’s time to set aside space in your stomachs because the 2018 Houston Restaurant Weeks is upon us.
The annual event helps provide funding to the Houston Food Bank, which arranges meals for underprivileged youth and families, according to the Houston Food Bank website.
“Houston Restaurant Weeks gives people in Houston an opportunity to experience Houston’s exceptional restaurants while providing much-needed relief for families suffering from hunger,” Food Bank CEO Brian Greene said. “We are grateful to once again be the beneficiary of this incredible event.”
As part of the month-long event, which runs from Aug. 1 to Sept. 3, more than 200 area restaurants have teamed up to donate proceeds of each meal on their HRW menu to the Houston Food Bank.
According to the Houston Food Bank’s website, said the charity has raised more than $9.6 million in the Houston area to fight hunger since its inception in 1982.
