This year, Houston Restaurant Weeks will run this week from August 1 through September 2, 2013. “Founded in 2003 by Cleverley Stone, Houston Restaurant Weeks 2012 raised over $1.22 million for the Houston Food Bank from the over 253,000 meals served at the 169 participating restaurants, added organizers of the event. “The result: The 3.66 million meals provided for those who are food insecure, made Houston Restaurant Weeks 2012 the largest single fundraising event for the Food Bank and the largest restaurant weeks of its kind in the United States.
For thousands of Houstonians and visitors to the bayou city, Houston Restaurant Weeks provides a month-long passport to the city’s top restaurants and award-winning chefs. Recently Food & Wine magazine tapped Houston as ‘America’s newest capitol of great food,’ coming as no surprise to locals who crowd some of the most popular dining rooms in the city.”
