2018 Houston Restaurant Weeks
August 1 @ 12:00 am - September 3 @ 12:00 am
Houston Restaurant Weeks, the most anticipated food event of the year, returns August 1st and runs through Labor Day, September 3rd.
Founded in 2003 by volunteer Cleverley Stone, Houston Restaurant Weeks has raised over $10 million for the Houston Food Bank. This has enabled the Food Bank to provide almost 30 million meals for Houstonians who are food insecure. As America’s largest and nationally recognized as Feeding America’s Food Bank of the Year, the Food Bank distributes 83 million nutritious meals through its network of 600 food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters and other hunger relief charities in southeast Texas, feeding 800,000 individuals each year.
Houston Restaurant Weeks is run by volunteers and 100 percent of the donations raised from area restaurants go directly to the Food Bank. For 34 days, diners will enjoy specially priced multi-course prix-fixe menus.
Starting July 15, 2018, diners can visit http://www.HoustonRestaurantWeeks.com to view the ever-growing list of restaurants that have committed to participate in the fundraiser, along with their Houston Restaurant Weeks menus. As commitments come in, restaurants will be added to the website until August 1. From fine dining to casual neighborhood restaurants, diners can sample some of the best Houston’s culinary scene has to offer. Some participating restaurants may require reservations, although walk-ins will be accepted at most locations. This information will be noted on each restaurant’s menu page on the website.
For thousands of Houstonians and summer visitors to the Bayou City, Houston Restaurant Weeks provides a five-week-long passport to the city’s top restaurants and award-winning chefs. In addition to the ever-expanding contribution made to the Houston Food Bank, this event has grown to include not only the newest and trendiest restaurants in Uptown Galleria, bustling downtown and vibrant Montrose and Midtown but also popular eateries in-more-outlying communities such as The Woodlands, Sugar Land and Galveston, Texas, among others. The Houston Food Bank partners with the Montgomery County Food Bank and the Galveston County Food Bank. All donations from restaurants operating in those counties will go to their respective food banks.
“As one who reports on restaurants and chefs in our city, I am so grateful for the outpouring of support by Houston’s restaurant industry, sponsors and diners for Houston Restaurant Weeks, benefiting the Houston Food Bank,” said founder and chair Cleverley Stone. “Houston Restaurant Weeks has become one of the most anticipated times of
the year for local foodies and visitors to our city.”
