Houston Restaurant Weeks 2014


Choose from more than 170 Houston restaurants offering special lunches, dinners and brunches throughout all of August as part of Houston Restaurant Weeks 2014. Each restaurant will offer special two- to four-course menus for $20 to $45 per person. The exact menu and price varies by restaurant. For every meal sold, a portion of the proceeds will go to benefit the Houston Food Bank, and in turn also support the Brazos Valley Food Bank, the Galveston County Food Bank and the Montgomery County Food Bank. You must make your reservation for Houston Restaurant Weeks 2014 in advance, and specify that you are selecting that option. If you use to make your reservation, include ‘Request HRW Menu’ in the comments field.
