Ready, Set, RESERVE: Houston Restaurant Weeks has begun
Houston Restaurant Weeks (HRW), the most anticipated food event of the year started August 1 and will run through Labor Day, September 6th.
For thousands of Houstonians, HRW provides a five week long passport to over 200 of the city’s top restaurants and award-winning chefs.
For 37 days, diners will enjoy specially priced, multi-course prix-fixe menus for brunch, lunch and dinner, with take-out and delivery options!
HRW, the single largest fundraiser of its kind in the United States is produced by The Cleverley Stone Foundation and benefits the Houston Food Bank, the largest food bank in the United States. Participating restaurants will make donations based on their HRW sales.
“The enthusiasm and energy for this year’s HRW has been off the charts”, says Katie Stone. “I am beyond excited and truly humbled in seeing how much joy and excitement everyone has shared for this event and my mother’s mission of feeding Houston!”
Diners can visit the HRW website to view the extensive list of restaurants that are committed to participate in the fundraiser, along with their respective menus. From fine dining to casual neighborhood restaurants, diners can sample some of the best Houston’s culinary scene has to offer.
Some participating restaurants may require reservations, although walk-ins will be accepted at most locations. This information will be noted on each restaurant’s menu page on the website.
ABOUT THE FOUNDER & THE CLEVERLEY STONE FOUNDATION:
Houston Restaurant Weeks was established in 2003 by 26-year restaurant correspondent and philanthropist Cleverley Stone, former host of “The Cleverley Show,” a talk show about food, wine and dining on CBS Sports Radio 650/KIKK-AM and former food segment contributor to Fox 26/KRIV Morning News in Houston.
To date, her event has raised over $16.6 million to fight hunger in Houston, providing over 50 million meals for those who are food insecure. The Cleverley Stone Foundation now exists to continue her mission and legacy by supporting Houstonians in need and producing Houston Restaurant Weeks, benefiting the Houston Food Bank, which takes place August 1st through Labor Day each year.
