Houston Restaurant Weeks returns with new takeout, delivery options in 2020
Hundreds of Greater Houston-area restaurants are preparing for the return of Houston Restaurant Weeks, kicking off Aug. 1 and running through Labor Day on Sept. 7.
Launched in 2003, the annual food event allows Greater Houston-area residents to support the Houston Food Bank by dining from special multicourse prix-fixe menus at local eateries. A list of participating restaurants will be posted on the event's website
July 17 and be updated with new additions through Aug. 1.
This year, $1 per meal purchased will be donated to the Houston Food Bank, which generates three meals for individuals and families in need. Dinner menus at participating restaurants offer $35-$45 options, and brunch and lunch are available for $20.
Patrons in the past have been encouraged to visit local restaurants in person, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, restaurants can now offer takeout and delivery options in addition to dine-in.
