Houston Restaurant Weeks (HRW), the most anticipated foodie event is kicking off  August 1 through September 6 (Labor Day), participating restaurants serve prix fixe menus (fixed price for a variety of multi-course meals). And this is where they strut their stuff, so to speak, showcasing specially created dishes or highlighting some of their all-time favorite recipes.

There’s no need to make special reservations to take advantage of these special promotions. Just book your meal like you normally would, reserving, or walking in, depending on the location.  And besides getting a fabulous dinner at a special price, a portion of your check is donated to the Houston Food Bank to provide multiple meals for their clients. It’s a win-win for everyone! And this just leaves one question:
