Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

On Tuesday, April 4, Houston food fanatics will come together for one of the tastiest nights of the year, the 15th Annual Houston Press Menu of Menus® Extravaganza. Guests will enjoy tastings from more than 40 local restaurants, alongside wine, beer and cocktail samplings from 7 to 10 p.m. at Silver Street Station. 

The event also features the 6th Annual Iron Fork Chef Competition, presented by Whole Foods Market and moderated by none other than retired Iron Fork champ and Roost restaurateur Kevin Naderi.  So who will be taking on defending Iron Fork champ and Southern Goods chef Lyle Bento in a head-to-head cooking competition in front of some 2,000 guests, you ask? That will be Gary Ly of Underbelly. It's sure to be quite the match, as Lyle Bento is himself an Underbelly alum. The winning chef will receive the "Iron Fork" award and bragging rights for next year.
