Are you always saying to yourself, “I would love to try X restaurant, but it is too expensive to go there on a date?” If you have ever said this to yourself, then Houston Restaurant Week is the perfect way for you to satiate your taste-buds with mouth-watering food, while keeping your pocketbook intact.
Houston Restaurant Week is indeed running for most of August! Having only begun on Sunday, August 1st and ending on Saturday, August 21st, you have plenty of time to peruse through the menus listed for over one-hundred and fifteen restaurants in Houston.
What’s the deal? You can choose any restaurant on the extensive 115-restaurant list and either decide to dine at lunch for $20 per person for a two-course meal, or you can be extravagant and reward yourself with a delectable three-course meal for $35 (Note: These prices do not include alcoholic beverages, tax or gratuity).
What’s the catch? Not only will you experience a top-notch dining experience, but you will also help raise money to end hunger. Participating restaurants pledge to donate $2 from every special lunchtime meal, and $5 from every special dinner to the Houston Food Bank.
How can I sign up? Just check out the menus on the Houston Restaurant Week website and call your favorite restaurant(s) to make a reservation. Make sure to tell them that you are participating in Houston Restaurant Week’s Special Meal Deal.
Can I sign up online? You sure can! Just go to www.opentable.com/Houston to make your reservation online. In using OpenTable, not only do you have the ability to make reservations quickly, without the hassle of ever being put on hold or calling the restaurants after-hours, but you can also earn Dining Rewards that help you earn points to receive a free meal.
