The time has come to welcome a new cadre of restaurants to the fascinating, if somewhat overwhelming, list of venues participating in Houston Restaurant Weeks. This year more than 50 new locales will offer a menu of multi-course prix fixe meals aimed to give diners a great deal for a great cause - this in addition to the approximately 150 existing participating restaurants. The weeks-long eating extravaganza officially kicks off August 1 and runs through Labor Day ending September 5. Expect that list to grow as additional locations add their names to the web site until July 31.
As the largest fundraiser for the Houston Food Bank, this annual event incorporates philanthropy with gastronomic adventure: each restaurant chooses a variety of dishes that either represent new experiments or old favorites so that diners can try a diverse set of offerings. In turn, a portion of each meal's cost will go directly to the Houston Food Bank for use in providing essential meals to those in need. Last year's event reached a record-breaking $1.9 million mark and with so many new faces this year there diners have the potential to be part of history once more.
Hubbell & Hudson Bistro is also new this year for $35 per person, $5 of which will benefit the Houston Food Bank.
