There are many aspects of Houston Restaurant Weeks to look forward to. There’s the excitement of seeing what the restaurateurs and chefs have selected for their special fundraising menus. There’s the win-win feeling of feasting on a multi-course meal at a good value for a great cause.
For diners well acquainted with Houston Restaurant Weeks, though, perhaps the most exciting thing are the tantalizing possibilities at new restaurants participating for the very first time. This year, there are
33 34 new locations, and they’re spread from downtown Houston to Katy and from Humble to Kemah. Some are top names in Houston dining where a meal is coveted year-round. Others serve cuisines from Tex-Mex to Mediterranean.

Well worth noting are some of the top restaurants that have joined the cause this year. This includes James Beard award winning chef Hugo Ortega’s Xochi and Provisions by James Beard nominated chefs Seth Siegel-Gardner and Terrence Gallivan. Also on the list are longtime Houston classics The Original Ninfa’s On Navigation and the downtown edition of well-regarded Pappas Bros. Steakhouse.
Of course, there are dozens of returning favorites as well. View the full list of participants at the Houston Restaurant Weeks website. For your convenience, we’ve included a map of where these new additions are located—and they are sorted below by area of town.
