This year's Menu of Menus will take place on April 17 at Silver Street Station. In addition to featuring 50 of the city's best restaurants in one place, Menu of Menus will offer an exciting new component this year: the Iron Fork competition, our own little take on Iron Chef.
The Iron Fork competition will pit two up-and-coming chefs as chosen by Houston celebrity chef Monica Pope, who'll be emceeing the competition for all to see. In honor of this, the first year of our Iron Fork battle, we're giving away one pair of tickets to the first person who successfully answers all five Iron Fork-related trivia questions below.
