10 Must Try Spots For Houston Restaurant Weeks

Don’t miss these restaurants during Houston Restaurant Week (August 1 – September 4, 2017.)

Houston Restaurant Weeks starts today and with more than 200 restaurants involved, Read Eat Discover wanted to share some of the best deals and spots on the list.

Houston Restaurant Weeks runs from August 1 – September 4, 2017, with menu prices ranging from $20 for brunch through to $45 (per person) for the higher end dinner offer. With each menu sold, participating restaurants donate a portion of the price to the Houston Food Bank, generating between 9-21 meals depending on the menu offered.

The list below is definitely not conclusive but it offers some of our top picks based on the restaurants we’ve previously visited. Take a look below:

B&B Butchers

Both menus are a steal for a two/three-course meal at B&B Butchers and feature items such as Chef’s Tommy’s Bacon with blue cheese and truffle infused honey (worth the additional $8), the 10oz filet mignon, and the butcher shop burger. Don’t miss the cheesecake for dessert!

Menus: $20 lunch & $45 dinner
