Can you believe August is here? Time sure has flown. August brings one of our favorite events of the year: Houston Restaurant Weeks which takes place from August 1-September 6!
Before we jump into telling you all about the menu, we want to take a moment to remember our dear friend, Cleverley Stone. Her love for good food and supporting local sparked her idea and initiative for Houston Restaurant Weeks. She had a compassionate heart for giving back to our local community, which made adding the Houston Food Bank as the beneficiary of her annual event a no-brainer. “Dine Out and Do Good” was her mantra. Cleverley passed away after her fight against cancer in May 2020. We know she’s proud of her mission-driven event continuing on in the city she loved and we’re proud to continue supporting—this is our fifth year participating.
Our new Houston Restaurant Weeks menu features new items we can’t wait for you to try, along with a few classic mainstay dishes that represent what we’re all about. We have three Houston Restaurant Weeks menus. Lunch is $20 that includes one entrée, a dessert, and your choice of an iced tea or fountain drink. Dinner is $35 that includes one starter, one entrée, and one dessert. Our To-Go bundle menu is $49 to feed 2+ people that includes one entrée, a second and third course that compliment as side dishes, and your bundle includes a house salad and fresh bread. Take a look at what’s on the menu!
