ULR’s Guide to Houston Restaurant Weeks 2014

Okay Houstonians! Get your forks ready and dig in! Houston Restaurant Weeks, established in 2003, is a month long dining experience with cooperating Houston restaurants. Each restaurant sets out menus ranging between $20 – $45 depending on the number of courses, then the restaurant donates proceeds to the Houston Food Bank. This is a great fundraiser where Houstonians can learn and experience different restaurants around the city while also providing meals to help the less fortunate. A single 3-4 course dinner can generate up to 21 meals. Needless to say all of us at Urban Leasing and Realty are excited for this event! Here is ULR’s guide to to best restaurants for Houston Restaurant Weeks 2014.

Salmon-Tartare-closeup-750x500 Arcodoro Ristorante Italiano: Angel Fultz cannot wait to dine here, she thinks “if you haven’t had their Rissotto al Langostine, you simply won’t die happy. It’s an off menu item available seasonally when the crustacean is available. Actually, the whole menu changes often as spices, vegetables and meats are flown in fresh from the owner’s home of Sardinia. If you’re on a budget, saddle up to the bar for a Margherita Pizza fresh from their wood burning oven.” Read more about their HRW menu.
