Houston Restaurant Weeks (HRW), starts today, August 1st and runs through Labor Day, September 5th – with a record-breaking number of restaurants participating this year!
For thousands of Houstonians, HRW provides a five-week long passport to over 300 of the city’s top restaurants and award-winning chefs. For 36 days, diners will enjoy specially priced, multi-course prix-fixe menus for brunch, lunch and dinner, with take-out and delivery options.
HRW is the largest fundraiser of its kind in the United States and is produced by The Cleverley Stone Foundation and volunteers.
Participating restaurants will make donations based on their HRW sales. The 2022 meal prices, and donation amounts are as follows:
“We are bowled over by this year’s response,” said Katie Stone, President of the Cleverley Stone Foundation. “Diners will have more than 300 restaurants across the area to choose from and Dine Out & Do Good! This is a significant number and shows us just how much everyone is anticipating HRW. Now is the time to go online and make your reservations so you don’t miss out!”
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 $17.6 million to fight hunger in Houston, providing over 52.8 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.
