It's here! Houston Restaurant Weeks has arrived and the Avenida restaurants participating have curated the most amazing specials for their customers. The month long event runs from August 1st to September 2nd and is the largest annual fundraiser for America's largest food bank, the Houston Food Bank.

The extravaganza is planned by volunteers in order to allow restaurants participating to donate a portion of revenue to the Houston Food Bank. So naturally, how could Avenida's culinary destinations not participate?! We decided to round up all of the participants in the neighborhood and the dishes they'll be creating, so all you have to do is show up and EAT 😉

The $20 two-course lunch menu follows suit with first dish options consisting of coq au vin, filet de sole and tartare de beouf and a variety of sweet treats to wash it down such as vanilla panna cotta topped with an almond crumble and strawberry coulis. What more could you ask for?
