Houston Restaurant Weeks is alive and well all around Houston! Who’s down for a great meal?

The month-long charitable movement means fabulous prix fixe menus at the best Houston restaurants for lunch, brunch, and dinner that benefit the Houston Food Bank! Eat good, do good!

Every year, I sit down and make my HRW hit list using the HRW app or website. Gotta do a lunch, brunch is a must, etc. Allow me to share some of my priorities with ya — as well as some of my recommendations.

Psst! We actually talked about this on our CW segment — check out the clip here!

The big night out

Obviously, with some of the nice restaurants on the list, a good way to approach HRW is to hit up one of the four or five dollar sign spots for dinner. Sure, it’s $45 per person, but you know that going in! And you score three or four courses! Here are some treat yo’self ideas!

  • B&B Butcher’s
  • Artisans Cuisine & Savoir-Faire
  • Brenner’s on the Bayou
  • Spindletop
  • Brennan’s of Houston

Brunch on a patio


August might be a tad hot for patio weather, but brunch might be the only meal where it’s not yet TOO hot. Here are some brunch-worthy patios.

  • Backstreet Cafe
  • Maison Pucha
  • Harold’s Restaurant
  • Night Heron

Lunch steals

Y’all . Theres something special about $20 lunch! Such a steal for some of these options. Especially the ones that have three courses — most will have two. These menus are my priorities. Here are some of my faves!

  • Caracol
  • 51fifteen
  • The Capital Grille
  • Ginger & Fork
  • Hugo’s
  • La Fisheria

New to Hou

Now is the time to visit one of the new Houston restaurants you’ve had your eye on. Here are a few of the newbies!

  • The Roastery
  • Strato 555
  • Warehouse 72
  • Killen’s TMX

An all-you-can-eat brunch

The Grove has a $35 Sunday brunch that’s ALL YOU CAN EAT! I mean, that alone is a great deal. BUT, during HRW, they donate to the Houston Food Bank, so if you’ve been wanting to hit that up, August is the month to do it.
