Dine Out and Do Good
From August 1st through September 2nd, you can DINE OUT and DO GOOD by participating in Houston Restaurant Weeks. During HRW, participating restaurants throughout the Houston area will make donations to the Houston Food Bank based on how many 2-3 course brunches, lunches, and dinners they sell. For each $20, $35, and $45 menu that is purchased, the restaurant will donate $3, $5, or $7 respectively.
Stop by Houston Restaurant Weeks to view the list of participating restaurants. Click on the name of the restaurant from the main page to view each restaurant’s specific menus. Reservations are required. When making your reservations, make sure that you mention that you would like the HRW Menu. Prices do not include beverages, tax, or gratuity, unless otherwise noted.
