Houston Restaurant Weeks is back, kicking off August 1 – September 5. This huge local event offers Houstonians a great opportunity to try some of Houston’s amazing restaurants at a more affordable price.
The bonus is Houston Food Bank receives $3 – $7 of every meal. It’s actually the single largest fundraiser for Houston Food Bank each year — with $1.9 million raised in last year’s event. It broke its previous record, $1.6 million. 100% of the funds raised go directly to the food bank, thanks to amazing volunteers.
This year, the participating restaurants exploded to 200+, which is wonderful for the Houston Food Bank.
Here’s how it works:
- 2-3 course lunch: $20 ($3 donation to Houston Food Bank)
- 3-course brunch: $20 ($3 donation to Houston Food Bank)
- 3-4 course dinner: $35 – $45 ($4, $5, $7 donation providing 12 – 21 meals)
Houston Restaurant Weeks is promoted as a reservation-only event, though some restaurants may accept walk-ins at their discretion.
I’m sure you’ll find your favorite fine dining restaurants and casual spots on the list with names such as Brennan’s of Houston, Canopy, Maggiano’s, benjy’s, Perry’s Steakhouse, Backstreet Cafe, Downtown Aquarium, Ruggles Green, Sylvia’s Enchilada Kitchen, El Tiempo and hundreds more. And once again, Alamo Drafthouse is participating with a special dining menu for the occasion.
