Austin Restaurant Weeks 2018 ~ "Foodie" Friday 8/17/18

I love the theme this year of Austin Restaurant weeks! “Come and give it” for 2 weeks beginning August 16 - September 3rd (yes that is this week!). One city but two weeks and lots of food! There will be specially-priced meals and drinks from a unique array of Austin area restaurants and bars, including world class farm-to-table options and traditional local favorites. There will be prixe meal options with lunch $25 and dinners at $35 & $45.

 

 

Turning your table for two into dinner for fifty is the goal!

It doesn’t get any better than Austinites being offered a delicious opportunity to experience the Austin areas best restaurants at a great price and help fight hunger in Central Texas at the same time!

Central Texas Food Bank is the beneficiary of restaurant week which will be able to provide thousands of meals each year to those in need. For each dollar that means 4 meals!

Check out the sponsors working together to make a difference.

The list of restaurants is growing so you’ll want to keep checking back to the Restaurant Week website so you don’t miss out. Here are some of the restaurants participating:

Sway

Odd Duck

Barley Swine

Sour Duck

Second Bar & Kitchen (Domain Northside)

L’Oca d’Oro

Watch this video with Bryce Gilmore, Chef-owner of Barley Swine and featured chef on the Restaurant Week website, cooking with his dad, Jack Gilmore, chef-owner of Jack Allen's Kitchen.  It definitely runs in the family!

Hi Nina Hollander,

I'm so excited this year to have the beneficiary be the Food Bank from Restaurant weeks in Austin. Its amazing how many people they feed and they can make such a difference in the quest to fight hunger.

Hi Dorie... same here in Charlotte. It's amazing how our primary food banks can stretch a dollar. And recently one of the residents of a nearby neighborhood started a food drive for the Waxhaw Food Pantry which had run out of food. I delivered bags full of non-perishables and she just told me that by putting the drive onto NextDoor here in south Charlotte, she raised over 1,000 pounds of food, which is amazing.

Dorie,

What a great way to fill the food banks in Austin.  Ron an I were talking abou that the other day.  It is so crazy that we have this problem nationwide.  I know that each market in town donates their inventory every three days prior to stamped perishable date.  A

Hi Dorie

What a wonderful event with a very special benefit - food for so many in need. It's pretty shocking when you see the stats on hunger in our country.

Hi Nina Hollander,

These food banks do know how to stretch a dollar. I volunteer every month at our Food Bank and on Wednesday afternoon our crews produced 9,600 meals! I was so tired but exhilarating feeling knowing we accomplished so much!

Hi Ron and Alexandra Seigel,

I find it so disturbing to see how many people in our country are hungry! They serve 46,000 meals a week at the Central Texas Food Bank..with the prosperity we enjoy I find this so unbelievable but its true!

Hi Jeff Dowler, CRS : Yes it is completely unbelievable that we have so many people that go hungry.

Hi Michael Jacobs : I hope a lot of eating, drinking and fun is done so a lot of funds are sent to the Food Bank!

Hi Sheri Sperry - MCNE® : We are hoping for a record turnout!

Hi Lawrence "Larry" & Sheila Agranoff. Cell: 631-805-4400 : You are right..no one deserves to go hungry!

Oh, I love Restaurant Week and particularly when a cause with which I am involved, is the beneficiary! Our food bank does more for this city than anyone could ever imagine and the organization is quite interesting to observe in-action. 

Hope you get to enjoy a few nights out for Restaurant Week, especially knowing some proceeds are going to such a wonderful cause!
