HOUSTON – Time to pair some wine with that pasta. Houston Restaurant Weeks runs through Sept. 2.

This month can be a time to treat yourself and venture out to some Houston restaurants that you normally would not splurge for. Not to mention, Houston Restaurant Weeks both donates to the Houston Food Bank and allows diners to get major bang for their buck.

Houston Restaurant Weeks brunch and lunch menus are $20 per person at each participating restaurant. Dinner menus are between either $35 and $45 per person depending on the restaurant.
