Houston has been recognized as one of the leading culinary destinations in the country, and they are now using that advantage to increase exposure for the Black restaurant and eatery owners as well as support a good cause with their Houston Black Restaurant Week. The inaugural event kicks off April 3rd and ends on April 10th.
During that time, patrons can receive a two course lunch for $20 or a 3 course prix-fixe dinner at participating establishments for $45. Events will also be taking place, like a pop up event hosted by Hell’s Kitchen contestant, Ja’Nel Witt at the Houston Museum of African American Culture. For chefs and caterers who do not have a physical location, there will be an event on March 29 at The Ensemble Theatre, where attendees can participate in food tasting.
A portion of the proceeds from Houston Black Restaurant Week will go to Change Happens!, formerly known as Families Under Urban & Social Attack, is a 501(c) (3), non-profit, community-based organization. The organization provides a variety of programs that reflect their mission to empower people to help themselves.
