All those weeks of eating prix fixe meals at discounted prices have resulted in more than $2 million being donated to the Houston Food Bank from Houston Restaurant Weeks, it was announced Wednesday.
The effort, started by radio and TV personality Cleverley Stone in 2003, is staffed by volunteers, which means all the money raised goes to the Food Bank. During the 36 days of the program, participating restaurants donated part of their sales to the food bank.
The Top Ten Donors in 2016 were:
B&B Butchers and Restaurant
Peli Peli/ Galleria
Brennan's of Houston
Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steak House
the Capital Grille/ CityCentre
Del Frisco's Grille/ Houston
Vic & Antony's Steakhouse
