It's Houston Restaurant Weeks 2011!
For the entire month of August, a select list of establishments participate in a worthy cause for the Houston Food Bank. The format is amazing. Lunches are $20 for a 2 course menu, dinners are $35 for a 3 course menu. You have an incredible selection of dining delights! And each restaurant donates either $5 for a dinner sold or $3 for a lunch sold to the Houston Food Bank.
The list of participating restaurants grows daily. You can subscribe to a free newsletter or follow Houston Restaurant Weeks on FB or Twitter. On the website you can peruse the menus offered. Here is a sample from Mark's American Cuisine. Lunch Menu. Buon Appetito!
