Houston Restaurant Weeks Returns Aug. 1st!

HRW 2015_520x320

We want in on the single largest fundraiser in the US, benefitting the largest food bank in America! To date, Houston Restaurant Weeks (HRW) has raised almost $6 million for the Houston Food Bank, which translates to almost 18 million meals for Houstonians in need!

Beginning August 1st, and running through Labor Day, September 7th, enjoy a five week long “passport” to the city’s top restaurants and award-winning chefs. That’s 38 days straight of specially priced multi-course prix-fixe menus!

HRW has grown to include not only the trendiest spots in Uptown Galleria, downtown and vibrant Montrose and Midtown, but also popular eateries in outlying areas such as The Woodlands, Sugar Land and Galveston.

HRW is run by volunteers and 100 percent of the donations raised from area restaurants go directly to the Food Bank. Restaurants make donations to the Food Bank based upon their HRW sales. CLICK HERE to see how it breaks down.

DINERS: How it Works…

1) Check the restaurant’s menu page on this site to see if they require reservations or will accept walk-ins. If reservations are required by your selected restaurant, please make your reservations by calling or emailing the restaurant. Some restaurants will also have reservation links you can click on.

2) When making your reservations, be sure to tell them that you would like the Houston Restaurant Weeks special menu. This will let the restaurant know to make a donation to the Food Bank from the proceeds of your meal. If using OpenTable.com to make your reservation, please write ‘Request HRW Menu’ in the comments field.

3) Please arrive on time for your reservation. Pay your check at the end of the meal, just like any other dining experience. The restaurant will make a donation to the Houston Food Bank based upon the price of your meal.

A list of participating restaurants is being updated continuously on the official HRW website with newly added participants through August 1. Reservations may be required by some restaurants – and are really the way to go! Walk-ins may also be accepted.
