In case you somehow missed the news, Houston Restaurant Week is upon us. August 11th through the 17th is right around the corner, and with only seven days and 52 restaurants to choose from, you’d best git bizzy if you want to get a table.
Refresher course: prix-fixe menus at each restaurant are $35 each. Some restaurants have a set menu, others allow you to choose your courses from a short list. Some offer wine free of charge, others don’t. The $35 doesn’t include other beverages, taxes or gratuity (and you’d better tip!). $5 from each meal goes directly to the End Hunger Network, which provides nutritious meals to needy people throughout Houston.
The participating restaurants and their menus can be found here:

Chowhounds are busily organizing RSVPs for certain restaurants, which can be found here:
You’ll see that we’ve got VOICE, *17, Arcodoro, Gravitas and a few others covered. Other reservations will come soon, so anyone who wants to accompany us for an evening will have their choice of venues. Please feel free to chime in here or on the Chowhounds board if you want to come along!
I’m in charge of events at the lovely Le Mistral, where we’ll be eating dinner at 7pm on Tuesday, August 12th. I have six spots reserved, so whomever wants to come had better grab your place fast!
