2018 Houston Restaurant Weeks

Your Ultimate Guide to Houston Restaurant Weeks: 2018

It’s finally that time of year again: the 2018 Restaurant Weeks have officially begun!

 

Restaurant Weeks is a Summer tradition here in Houston.   During the Dog Days of August when so many people are winding down their Summer vacations, the restaurant industry has created this event to raise money for the Houston Food Bank.   Each specific participating restaurant has a special daily menu to choose from and a certain percentage of the tab goes to the Food Bank!   It’s lots of fun and has become a wonderful time to reconnect with friends, former clients, and prospects!
